The two parts of the earnings call that I found most interesting.

Reynolds straight out says that the $1.5 billion revenue guide is now low.

And what type of cost that is, I mean probably if you go back to January and the CapEx plan that we laid out when we launched 200-millimeter, this is largely the same plan. What we're trying to do is capture the capacity and the revenue in such a way by pulling in that same plan anywhere we can to drive more capacity. So some of that was going over '23 and '24. Some of that was materials expansion for facilities and things like that. So you can think about it as being -- maybe pulling in roughly $100 million maybe versus what we anticipated before. But with the expectation that as we get out to '23 and '24, we can meet a higher revenue level than we had anticipated previously in the $1.5 billion plan.


and management gave some hard numbers around the anticipated savings around Mohawk.

Let me just kind of spell that out a little bit in further detail. I think If you think about the differences between North Carolina and Mohawk Valley, wafer cost, for instance, in Mohawk Valley will be more than 50% lower than what we currently have in Durham. And that's not completely including the full benefit of moving from 150-millimeter to 200-millimeter at diameter change. Cycle times in Mohawk Valley will be 50% greater or better than what we have -- so 50% better than what we have in Durham. And then lastly, the yield in Mohawk Valley will be 20% to 30% -- sorry, 20 to 30 points higher than what we have currently in Durham.
