Huh? ANY company that's focused on the bottom line is ALWAYS looking at ways to potentially cut costs. Further, if business was weak or the outlook gloomy why would ATML mgt. have rebuffed the takeover offer recently? My guess is that management feels the company is worth MORE than what was offered.
