Analyst Brent Thill slashed his earnings per share estimate for 2001 to 65 cents from 72 cents and to 80 cents from 90 cents for 2002. Merrill Lynch also downgraded the stock to neutral from accumulate.


"It's interesting that Siebel uses Vignette to run their Web site," said Dana Serman, an analyst at brokerage firm Lazard Freres.


Hogan assumes immediate responsibility for worldwide operations at Vignette, including sales, marketing, support, services and product development.


At Siebel, Hogan was responsible for all of the company's license revenue through all distribution channels.
