One thing that justifies valuation (remember: it is all about future potential!) of FreeScale it is doing right things in some areas of its product portfolios. For example, just in last year alone, they have shipped more Sensor products that what they did (in that segment) in the 25 years prior! Dr. MP Divakar

Agree, not sure how the $7.5B dollars of debt and limited cash reserve will play into the equation for stock pricing with a company that has essentially been on life support in terms of manufacturing. The reality now is Freescale will need to have financial transparency to the market. In addition, post the buyout in 2006, all the executives left the company after the payout. Hope this is not a trend in 6 months when they can exercise their options.

No, simply put, 22-24 was too expensive for the state of the affairs that FSL is in. And investment banks knew it. I mean too expensive compared to peers (like NXP or TXN). The first day attracted day traders hoping for a quick gain like LNKD. And we saw at the close that the demand was thin and the sellers pushed down the price.

Don't expect a huge rise like LinkedIn. Freescale is a good company, but it will take many years to pay off the debt.

Dropping the IPO price to US$18 from US$22-24 range declared earlier, this might have been done to tempt the reatil investers for investing in this IPO.

Sounds like they have formulated some strategic goals and actually have plans in place to carry through on those. If so, then maybe we'll continue to see Freescale as a major player.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
