Either the ramp has gone slowly as a result of poor execution ( this would be the bear point of view), or management was being conservative in previous guidance by giving a large depreciation number, and after the fab began producing mature yields at a quick pace, demand did not warrant further equipment start-up until later in the year,” he said.
