Intel to cut 12,000 staff

"Will allow Intel to intensify our investments in the products and technologies that fuel our growth"

Technology company Intel has revealed plans to cut thousands of employees by 2017.

"Today we are announcing a restructuring initiative that will allow Intel to intensify our investments in the products and technologies that fuel our growth, and drive more profitable mobile and PC businesses," said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich in an email to employees.

"We expect that this initiative will result in the reduction of up to 12,000 positions globally. This will be achieved by voluntary and involuntary departures, global site consolidation, and efficiency initiatives. The majority of these actions will be communicated over the next 60 days, with some spanning into 2017."
