Yeah it might be worth buying back their earlier owned factory rather than buying a different one even if they had to pay a bit more. A lower price would be even better. But if the reason for this decision is to protect the interest of customers and their former employees (as quoted), that is much appreciated.

Is it possible that they are buying back lower than they sold? A reverse flip!

It is very simple and clear the demand for the elctronic manufacturing service is going up and Jabil doesn't want to lose its pie. They are buying back their factories since it is much easier to operate them rathar than building a new ones.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
