It's good to hear that TI is seeing stronger business. To the 1000 employees at the affected fabs: I hope you are able to move on quickly to new oppotunities and that this change only makes you stronger.

A correction should be made to the closure of 150mm fabs at TI. The Sherman site is still runninng strong and will be the only 1500mm fabrication only site in eigtheen months. I do hope many of the Stafford personnel are able to transfer to the Dallas or Sherman sites given the option.

Correction to the above. 150mm , not 1500mm.
