Five Companies That Dropped The Ball This Week


Mitel Cuts Jobs, Lowers Quarterly Revenue Guidance

Mitel's struggles continue, as the company said it is planning to lay off 200 full-time employees and shutter some of its facilities. Mitel also trimmed $10 million from its forecast for its fiscal 2013 first quarter, which ends Aug. 30.
