I wouldn't worry about Ted Chung's departure. He was effectively fired when Timothy Blanke took the top sales jobs from him in July 2012 and they shuffled him back to an office in the basement. Chung was prominent on many conference calls especially when Das was still there, but I guess Ali wasn't comfortable with him. Dr. Ali must have known Blanke at Anadigics. I agree with altrfan, he was probably shown the door.
