This is typical in most businesses when dealing with a sensitive PR situation. If you can find a business reason, financial reason, or a reason based on a violation of a legal agreement, then it is always better to use that when terminating a relationship. Why do this? Because it is harder to challenge in court, and it protects the companies best interests. You don't have to like it.
