Em um curto email Steve Jobs anunciou aos funcionários da Apple que se afastaria da empresa até Junho, deixando Tim Cook, C.O.O. da empresa a cargo de suas atribuições.
Steve diz que seus problemas de saúde são mais complexos do que originalmente imaginava.
Com os mercados já fechados, só veremos a reação do Mercado amanhã, mas imagina-se que as ações da Apple sofrerão bastante com esse anúncio.
O texto original do email:
I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very
personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my
personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my
family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the
past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex
than I originally thought.
In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health,
and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary
products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the
end of June.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day
operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team
will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major
strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully
supports this plan.
I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.
