In my opinion it's time for ST to come back to the original company mission: technology innovation. I do not see any vision in Bozzoti's speeches. The management is playing with creative finance: breakups and carve outs. Time is up: next wrong step and ST will follow Nokia in its decline.

Digital is a losing business. I wonder if anyone will be ready to help them by buying it

But even the analog/mixed signal has been doing well because of Apple. If Apple departs, they could be in trouble.

After the acquisition of NXP wireless and Ericsson mobile units, they do no know how to manage them. It shall be interesting to see if Samsung is interested to buy this money losing unit, some additional cuts will occur.

It is also interesting that ST's denial is carefully worded. It has denied the "existence of initiatives" but it has not mentioned whether creating such initiatives is being discussed.

Such a move would make a lot of sense...their digital business has low probability of survival on its own
