The company had finally gotten into the black after 7 quarters of losses, closing of its US factory, and reductions in executive pay and positions. But though the market for DRAM will continue to increase over the next few years due to smartphones, gaming devices, tablets, ASPs will drop rapidly starting this year due to glut in supply. What is good for consumers i.e. higher DRAM content at the same pricing, is not so good for Hynix. So, good if the company’s shareholders can sell sooner rather than later.

Any DRAM company that needs to depend on external companies for support, is in trouble in the long term. This will leave Samsung as the only self-sufficient one.
