In 1999, Pulsar's chairman and CEO, Jenny Jones appointed her daughter-in-law, Kyla Jacobs-Jones to run Caltron. Caltron, a calculator manufacturer, was fully owned by Pulsar. Caltron was facing stiff competition from abroad, and in 2001 members of Pulsar's board of directors began to put pressure on Jones to divest it. Jacobs-Jones was given two years to turn the unit around before revisiting the decision to divest Caltron. In 2004, Dan O'Shea, CA, CFA, a corporate financial consultant with KPMG has been hired to review and analyze the company operations and make recommendations.
