Down Sizing for Base Ten Systems
In search of smaller quarters, Base Ten Systems, the
computer software developer at One Electronics Drive, hired Segal
Commercial Real Estate to lease its 81,600 square foot office
building (E-mail: email@example.com).
Since the company spun off a defense division, Strategic Technology
Systems, nearly two years ago, Base Ten has been scaling back. It
now has 40 employees and occupies a portion of the one-story building
in Hamilton Township. "It is way too much space for them,"
says Charles Segal, the commercial real estate contact (609-882-3737).
The building is one mile from the Sloan Avenue interchange of I-295,
only 300 feet from the main fiber optic trunk line, and near the
Corridor Main Line of Amtrak. Segal says the location is ideal for
high-tech, telecom, or E-commerce companies. He is marketing it at
$10 per square foot net on an as-is basis, divisible to about 35,000
Base Ten has not yet located a new facility. "If we were to sign
a lease today, Base Ten would have to find a new space, so we’re
a minimum of four months," says Stephen Cloughley, the company’s

On April 18 Bristol-Myers Squibb ran a full page
in the New York Times for its hypertension drugs. On April 19 it
it would have to delay an FDA filing for Vanlev, a much-touted new
formula that can lower blood pressure 40 percent more than competitive
drugs. The cause for worry: Four of 7,000 patients experienced
of the face, throat, and tongue.
This damaging delay follows on the heels of another delay, last month,
for Bristol’s new colon cancer drug Orzel. The company says it can
effectively restructure the Vanlev trials and points to other
such as a diabetes drug, in the pipeline. But the news buffeted the
stock so severely that trading was temporarily halted. Now there is
talk about the firm merging with Eli Lilly or Schering Plough.
