@Neo1, I agree with you. Magma is here to stay. Many major vendors have flow setup for magma. I dont think they will stop using magma.

IIRC Apache is not listed yet. If the company is not listed, many a times the management asks to return the stock at a higher price while the employee leaves. If that didn't happen, the ex-employee should get a cut at the acquired value.

What happens in such cases to employees, who had purchased stock, but left before the acquisition? Do they get a cut?

Magma stock has gone up quite a bit in recent months. So not a good time to buy. Current market cap is 530M and one would need to shell out atleast 700-800M to buy Magma. I doubt whether SYN or CDNS will want to spend that much right now. http://www.google.com/finance?q=NASDAQ%3ALAVA

Naw, I don't see Magma going anytime soon, what with chip sales projections showing in excess of 10% for the coming years. Yeah but their strength in the backend process is not working out with such package deals these bug 3 sellout their tools for.

Yes. I think Magma will be gone by next summer. The environment is tough and competition is hitting up.

It took a little time for this to happen, I was expecting some news release at DAC couple of weeks ago in San Diego. What next? Magma? MP Divakar
