It's pure speculation on my part, but this could be the beginning of Roche getting their hands on Ion Torrent. The 'strategic review' could result in a breakup of the company, separating the high-growth NGS business from the relatively slow-growth reagents business. I think a split like this would make an acquisition by Roche much more likely.
