Didn't they get $1.4B from Intel for their wireless biz end of 2010? They should have enough cash for dry times. Looks like Kulim 2 is also pushed out, right?

@Roger Sleep is a low-energy state compared to dynamic activity when awake. There is still a lot of brain activity, breathing, processing of food and information going on. But things slow down; tired muscles rest and repair. In that sense it feels like Infineon, which made a good profit in FY12, is a strong company but has decided to slow things down and at least take things easy through a difficult winter.
