Jobs 宣布請病假至六月

日前蘋果公司執行長 Jobs 繼上周公開發表有關他健康狀況的公開信後,又再次有重大消息宣布

Jobs 表示上周他雖已在公開信中解釋自己的身體狀況,無奈外界不斷的揣測跟好奇遠超過他的想像,此舉已經影響到他與他的家人,以及蘋果公司;外加他發現其健康狀況比他原本認知的還要複雜,因此他決定要暫時因病告假至六月底。而蘋果的營運長 Tim Cook 會在他告假期間負責蘋果常態性的作業活動,至於其他的重大決策, Jobs 還是會持續參與。

一如大家所預料,這樣的宣布立即挑起蘋果圈的敏感神經。由於這項宣布是在美股收盤後才發布,因此蘋果公司原來以當日下跌 2.71% 的 85.33 元收盤的股價,在盤後交易立即大跌 7.07% ,以 79.30 元作收。相信各種臆測 Jobs 的病況將會持續在圈內沸騰,而這個令投資蘋果的股票族頭痛的問題也繼續延燒至 2009 年。

以下便是 Jobs 公開信的內容:

    各位同仁:

    我相信大家都知道上週我分享個人狀況給整個蘋果圈的那封信。很遺憾,公眾對我健康狀況的好奇臆測不僅已嚴重影響了我的家人,也影響到蘋果公司。在上週,我發現我的健康狀況比我原本認知的要複雜得多。

    為了不再讓我的健康狀況被大家過於關注,並讓蘋果所有同仁專注於繼續開發傲人的產品,我已經決定請病假直到六月為止。

    我已要求 Tim Cook 負責蘋果的日常運作事務,我相信他與其他高階主管會好好完成這項交付。作為公司的執行長,我計畫繼續參與公司的重大決策。公司董事會全力支持我的計劃。

    期待著夏天與大家再見!

    Steve




以下是這封信的原文:



    Team,

    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.

    Steve
