AMD is currently worth $1.45 billion in market value, a little under a hundred times smaller than Intel’s value of $103 billion. Its surprising that the company has lasted this long in the game where nearly every other player in the x86 market bowed out, was eaten by competitors or simply quit because the license fees became too much. With mounting debt north of $2 billion, AMD has hired JP Morgan Chase & Co. to explore financial options for the company moving forward. What could those be? A sale is one of the possibilities, as well as the company selling out a large amount of stock options to investors who can give it a much-needed cash injection. Lets see how this plays out. It didn’t help that AMD sold their foundry off as a separate company in order to balance the books, so which part, other than 15% of the workforce, will be coming off next?
