A key statement by the CEO and the reason why this investment should be held until the company is bought out:
"As the small cell market grows, we want to make sure the investment community understands our key differentiators, and in particular, why Mindspeed is the leader in the small cell system-on-a-chip market.
First, the market has become standardized on the SoC approach versus using discrete processors and FPGAs.
Additionally, Mindspeed owns the industry's broadest range of wireless standard radio air interface Fi layer software and can therefore address any region around the globe.
And finally, we have carrier-proven, carrier-deployed technology for the typically risk-averse service providers, enabling a smoother testing cycle and faster deployment for our OEM customers.
These amongst many other factors have given us the market-leading position for SoC solutions in this growing small cell market. For instance, we are designed into and expect to be shipping our dual-model Transcede SoCs into the world's largest networks in late calendar 2013."
