Goldman Sachs (GS) rates AKS as Under perform/Neutral in light of the resignations. GS sees both positive and negative implications for the stock.

Mr. Wardrop and Mr. Wirtz had 'difficult' relations with labor. But both are credited with keeping AKS out of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Jim Wainscott, the new acting CEO, might be a fresh start on labor relations and has an aversion to bankruptcy as did his predecessors.
