In the 7 years since Joyce became #2 to KIM, AMKR's annual revenue has grown an average of 0% (that's zero percent) while the stock price has lost 2/3 of its value. A legacy of caretaker management and, of course, unfathomable board of director complacency.
You can't have the major strategy being the sale of the company and have any real chance to grow it at the same time. There will always be too many decisions that would not be compatible with doing both. I do agree that Kim picked his as a caretaker not someone to build the company.
With his retirement and the plans for new plant and R&D in Korea, I have more questions than answers for what is going on. His replacement will tells us something.
Invest, with all due respect to your generally astute observations, all this talk about strategy being sale of the company is getting old, and it's a poor excuse for KIM's self-interest. It doesn't take this long to sell a company. I find it impossible to believe that the Board of Directors would show this much patience in KIM's effort to sell the company.
