Junko, Interesting article. I think you may need to add one more zero. 138BYen is $1.67B...not $167M. Do we really think you can pick up a majority stake in a company the size of Renesas (~$8-9B in sales) for under $200M?

I second the nomination. Mario probably doesn't remember me, but our paths crossed back in the Motorola days. I agree Junko, Mario should put his hat in the ring for the Renesas challenge.

Hi, Mario! How have you been? What was I thinking... we will definitely nominate you to run Renesas!!! I don't want to jinx it, but you have all the right qualities in your resume.

Well Junko, this job is heavy with inter-cultural challenges. Renesas has great technology and excellent position in MCUs. Big challenge = great opportunity.

"foreign scapegoat" is a pretty good job description!
