What happened is showing how is complex the correlation between tangible products market and stock market which could really impact in a negative sense, companies' business and profit especially during a critical phase as we are assisting. And right now, also Germany is involved in.

Infineon pays--as does the industry

Forcing Infineon to pay -- which might be the correct thing to do under the law -- would be wrong for the electronics industry. I realize this isn't the courts' problem(the industry), but with Europe in an ongoing financial crisis (I've stopped reading the stories at this point) damaging Infineon hurts the overall EU economy.

A well-placed nudge to settle? That might be best for all.

German Government may get involved in this type of case for out of court settlement. If not, so many job will be jeopardised.

Infineon needs to win this case or at least not lose too badly. What the bankruptcy administrator is asking could cripple Infineon if it received an adverse ruling.

I believe to win the insolvency administrator would have to prove Infineon intentionall underfunded Qimonda. I really don't know how that can be confirmed. It points to a challenge for companies spinning off units to shareholders simply because the market conditions are no longer as profitable as they once were.

In the past also, we've seen leverage buyout specialists load heavy debt burdens on acquired companies (Freescale and NXP are examples). I don't recall details but it's possible some shareholders might have also complained about these transactions.

I do not understand why the amount being asked doubled all of a sudden. Valuing non-cash contributions is also notoriously difficult.  I hope it works out well for Infineon.

Infineon must refuse charges and fight it in court. This will get process and delayed and out of court settlement will be mush less. Did not Infineon published risk statement when formulated Qimonda? This may save them.
