Dr. Michael Jaffé was confident that he will be able to continue the ongoing talks with potential investors successfully. The interim employment society is scheduled to last for three months, the report continues.

To be able to present a fully operational facility to potential investors, a core workforce of around 300 employees will continue to develop the innovative Buried-Wordline technology and maintain the clean room in stand-by. An additional 200 employees will shut down the facility gradually. These employees will be paid by the insolvency administrator, the rest of the workforce is asked to transfer to the proposed interim employment society, the DNN report continues.
