Motorola loves to lose?
The Register: Motorola hints at chip biz sell-off - again
at UBS Warburg's Global Telecom Conference, held in New York this week. "We fixed it. We got it generating significant positive cash flow and double-digit pre-tax profits. We sold the [government business division] last September."
Now they're saying they might sell their chip design business once it's profitable. I'm sorry but I don't understand this. Why would a company hold onto money-losing business units and sell profitable ones?
Is Motorola's goal to lose money until they don't exist?
