Good luck to you! I would be wary of opening your books to the managers. Since you are cutting their salaries, what is preventing them from thinking, "this guy sucks, coming in and cutting our salaries and expecting more work from us, hey lets start our own business-we are the people that show up to do the work, the customers know our work-that will show this new owner who's the real boss".

Sounds like an ugly culture, you may need to thin the herd, but slowly so you have replacements that are good.
Obama is so bad, Kenyans are accusing him of being born in the USA.
