      Cons

      Sold to NXP Semiconductor which has no clear direction for future.

      Advice to Management

      Selling to NXP was a bad idea. I understand it, however NXP had no clear direction for future except for what Freescale brought to the table. I am glad we are being purchased by Qualcomm.
