Good for Starboard! MIPS has suffered from a compliant, ineffective board and a visionless management for years. It's about time somebody took them to task

Sure, ARM is a bright star...but you should still do well selling MIPs cores...Kris

Yes, the Chipidea aqusition was a doubtful move...they didn't appreciate difficulties in adding analog to digital...it is harder than it looks...Kris

Might the fact that ARM is kicking but all over the place have something to do with MIPS' problems?

It's time someone put this stable in order. They are kind of stagnant in their offerings and Starboard is rightly concerned. Apart from making financial news on WallSt they haven't been in the picture of late.

The owners (stockholders) have a right to run their company. That's the way it works for publicly traded companies.

I wonder if "poorly executed acquisitions" might refer to MIPS buying ChipIdea for $147M in cold cash and then giving it away to Synopsys for $22M after only 18 months. Wow...
