The claim has to be backed by data and data only. Their top line is heavily influenced by one company - AMD. You need to see non-AMD portion of the revenue to see whether their real foundry market share is truly growing compared to TSMC, Samsung, UMC, and SMIC.

We can't condone off track betting on the EE Times Forum. :) But what are you saying? Globalfoundries won't increase its share of the foundry market?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
