It would seem to buck the trend of out sourcing chip production, not that I would encourage unlimited fab-less chip companies. It does not make a lot of sense but then they could be positioning their fab technologies as a market differentiator and thus enabling long term market ownership for there devices. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. It is also a tough nut to swallow for those who lose their jobs.

"The company is trying to transition from a foundry into an own-product business model ..." Certainly not a lot of this going on these days.

I hope they keep as many employees as possible. I would take a pay cut to keep my job (if I had one) in this economy.
