Bonsoir monsieur Fr3nch, I am busy with my work, contributing to a smart world of connected things for a better life. At least this is the plan. Take care.
Thank you Planet, enjoy the week end too! From one of the "friends across the waters", in an outstandingly sunny and warm Italy!
Johnny Walker Blue Ribbon you mean? One of the best blends. Cheers! (with moderation of course, but it's the week end!). Ciao!
Hello French, I have a batch of pistachio a little bit hard to de-shell. Does this really qualify as AWOL?
"trying to keep this as quiet as possibile" . Come on, everyone heard you have farted.
they might have more buyers if the company is sold in different pieces. I don't see MCHP keep the Aerospace business for example. Another company could buy the CSO fab, etc.
TXN, ST, CY and many others were probably invited to bid, if only DLG made an acceptable offer, it's maybe because ATML wanted too much.
I think MCHP will wait till after ATML releases Q4 results, to make the most of the price drop they seem to expect: "Microchip Technology Inc. is reconsidering its interest in Atmel Corp. after Atmel’s business struggled in the fourth quarter, according to a person with knowledge of the situation."
From the public PR: "The newly issued Nokia shares will be delivered to the tendering Alcatel-Lucent securities holders and start trading on Nasdaq Helsinki, Euronext Paris and, for the Nokia ADSs, on the New York Stock Exchange on January 8, 2016. The first day as an operationally combined group will be January 14, 2016." That being said, there's no dilution stricto sensu, because the current NOK shareholder will become shareholders of a larger company. And one is free to sell anytime, isn't it?
HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finland's Nokia said on Monday it has gained control of French rival Alcatel-Lucent following its 15.6-billion-euro ($17 billion) all-share offer and the two telecom equipment makers would combine on Jan. 14.
The French stock market authority said interim results showed Nokia would hold around 79 percent of Alcatel shares.
Thank you very much. My best wishes to you and your family. Plus all the MB of course. I am in Portugal, a good gourmet place, great food and wine, they also have great wines. Did I mention the wine? Ciao.
Hi Frenchie, LOL my espresso machine is on strike, I did the maintenance last week end but it stopped working. The de-scaling procedure was halted and I can't get it resume. After the long holiday season in Italy, I will take it to the espresso-smith . These days I drink Turkish coffee. And I just had a handful of pistachio. Your crystal ball must be "Made in Switzerland"! Good to see you around.
