Greece gets a bit of cheer after Siemens (SI) agrees to a €330M deal to settle bribery allegations connected to the Athens Olympics in 2004. However, the settlement is far less than the €2B that Greek parliamentarians demanded last year. Still, the deal includes the construction of a factory that will lead to over 700 jobs.

  • I am so happy for the Greeks. Do the Siemens stockholders get kissed?

  • Siemens sells a lot of product to Greece, but only because Greece has the Euro, if a Greek exit were effected one would hope they got more than just a kiss, maybe dinner and a movie too.
