  • Intel's other cost-cutting measures included canceling some immediate travel for the group, limiting industry conference participation, and hosting virtual group meetings when possible.
  • Intel shares have shed 28% over the past year, and it told investors to brace for lower gross margins as it spends heavily to catch up to rivals like Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd TSM.
  • Recently CEO Pat Gelsinger said the company would "slow" its hiring and onboard 23,000 newly hired employees over the next 90 days. Intel had 121,000 employees at the end of 2021.
