This is a big day for the largest wilsonville, oregon based company, Mentor Graphics. Siemens is buying them for about a 20% or so premium or 4.5Billion. The deal already approved, Siemens is apparently keen on adding Mentor's 20% margins to its own

i grew up in wilsonville, and most of my friends parent's work there or are employed by the positive externalities of the high paying jobs that mentor provides. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out in the CPU space as Mentor makes hw/sw to aid in the design of chips - I wonder why Intel didn't just buy them
