Of course what the f**k would they have done with all that interest repayment otherwise- spend it on some bullshit like R&D, or keep their fabs, or not have to sell their handheld graphics IP to Qualcomm ? Nah, you're right- better to pour money into debt servicing.
so haveing your Ip in a quarter of the worlds(or more) igpu isnt going to end up good business practice??
so opening up your subsiduary fabs up to open investement and outside workflow yet retaining manufactureing options with them is also not good business practice, some see these things differently clearly
