After that was discovered, the startup got a new head - David Sacks. He announced that he is firing 106, offering buyouts to others, and closing the Arizona sales office. Here are the details in Recode.
The question, of course, is can this high flyer even lift off again. Time will tell.
Meanwhile that other high flyer Theranos looks like it may never have the resources to regroup. Walgreens, its primary source of revenue, dumped it. The regulatory agency didn't accept its proposal for correction of problems. And the feds and SEC are investigating it.
What Theranos has going for it is that on its board and "guiding" founder Elizabeth Holmes is superlawyer David Boies. He got hedge fund player Steve Cohen off the hook with the SEC. Time will also tell is Theranos can find a way back.
