Blow to the Japanese government

Dyland your headline nearly caused me to choke on my breakfast-prophecy or what? With all the companies and entities that Micron has eaten up I wonder how long it might be before the sounds of choking start to be heard from them? What happens to the $1.75Billion in easy instalments if there is a significant downturn between now and 2019? Maybe just too big to fail-heard that somwhere before?

The difference between Micron and Elpida could be cultural and language barrier. That could make the integration a bit rougher.
