What kind of opportunity does the HP acquisition open up for the Samsung employees?

From a culture perspective, we want to move into a much more open and less hierarchal culture than what they have experienced up until now. They are a very young employee base that we think is really going to appreciate the difference in style that there is between the traditional Korean Samsung world and what HP will be bringing.

There is also the opportunity this brings to employees from a career perspective. We have great career opportunities in many other parts of the world that will be available to them. One of the big announcements we will make is we will have a rotation program where we will be looking at moving employees from Korea to other sites of HP for a period so they can learn new technologies, new cultures and other parts of the print business. This is a great career opportunity for the Samsung employees.
