    keeping the end game in sight

    He says the episode shows “India has the ability to get a big, troubled firm back on track,” and yields some general lessons about corporate survival …… The last lesson is about the importance of keeping the end-game in sight. Mr Karnik recalls that, within weeks of the collapse, government types suggested that the firm might stay independent after all. “I said it was like a vegetable—if you delay selling, the price will go down. If you leave it too long you’ll have to pay someone to take it away.”

    What do "keeping the end-game in sight" and "stay independent after all" mean in the above paragraph?
