Investors and analysts – not to mention generalist observers – are still reeling over the shock sacking of Sanofi's CEO Christopher Viehbacher earlier this week (scripintelligence.com, 29 October 2014). The company's chairman (and interim CEO) Serge Weinberg's explanation of the decision has done little to calm nerves (scripintelligence.com, 29 October 2014). Sanofi saw more than €18bn wiped off its market value between Friday 24 October and Wednesday 29 October.
