Major restructure likely for ST-Ericsson

According to a report by Reuters, who cites three sources familiar with the situation, ST-Ericsson Chief Executive Didier Lamouche will announce plans to reorganise the company this month. The plans will including cite closures around the world and major layoffs.

Sources said the restructure will be designed to place the company in a position for a takeover by a peer or competitor, creating a rival to Qualcomm Inc.
