3DV fires workers ahead of Microsoft acquisition
The move signals that Microsoft will not develop the company's technology in Israel.
Last week, controlling shareholder, IDB Holding Corp. Ltd. (TASE:IDBH) unit Elron Electronic Industries Ltd. (Nasdaq: ELRN; TASE: ELRN) announced that it had signed an MOU with Microsoft for the sale of its 43% stake in 3DV at company value of $34 million.
The layoffs signal that Microsoft is not interested in developing the company's technology at its R&D center in Israel.
3DV was not available for comment.
