I like to read about the persons behind the companies and how they influence their success. Many times the difficult and negative events shake things up to either improve them or remove the weak. "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". That is what happened with Renesas and Cadence. And really impressive that move of cutting paychecks to survive in the case of Juki Automation Systems. An the winner is... ?
