“New management likely catalyst for ISIL shares. In our view, ISIL was poorly managed over the last 5 years. The lack of leadership is reflected in the share price, the decline in earnings and a number of unfortunate acquisitions. While a transformation will take time, a new CEO, Necip Sayiner, started on 3/14/13. We believe he will be a positive catalyst for change based on his track record at SLAB. A pragmatist, we believe he and his team will identify products, markets and opportunities that will stabilize revenue and profitability. Prior to his arrival, Intersil underwent a restructuring in Q1:13, reducing its workforce by 18% and lowering expenses by $28M.,” Piper Jaffray’s analyst commented.
