US-based medical software company Cerner Corporation saw its share price fall recently after a sternly-worded e-mail from CEO Neal Patterson was forwarded to millions of people around the world.
The message was sent to 400 managers at the company, complaining that gaps in the car park indicated that workers were not putting in enough hours and threatening '...you will fix it or I will replace you. You have two weeks. Tick tock.'
Since the message was leaked to a worldwide audience, shares in Cerner have fallen by around 30%, reducing the value of Patterson's own holding by some USD40m according to Sky News.
