If lucky 1400 will join TSMC but what will happen to the other employees ? Will the be properly compensated ? Japan is facing lot of problems this decade like earthquakes, tsuname and financial slowdown. I hope thing will return to normalcy in Japan soon.

It would seem that the company has been hit with the double whammy of poor sales due to economy and a large infrastructure that was too expensive to maintain. The cuts and reorganization will be painful, I am wondering if they will have enough strength and product offerings to survive?

TV market is certainly saturated recently and the companies involved in making semiconductor parts for the TV's could face the burn.

It can be understand that the decline in the FlatTV leads to the closing of the facility, but why the plant which is designing and manufacturing ICs for LCDs is also being closed?

Dynamic market condition and slow response creates similar situation. It is very essential to have vision at top management level.

This is not a big surprise. They are the largest microcontroller company in the world, but I don't think they'll hold that distinction for too much longer.

This is large scale restructuring. Consumer electronics and TV market has seen a major shift from Japanese manufactures to Samsung and others.
