Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. (NYSE:FSL) today announced that it has launched
a formal process to identify a successor to Alan Campbell, chief financial
officer, who has announced his decision to retire from the company. The

positioned the company for growth and long-term success.”

proud of the accomplishments we’ve made as a team and am confident in the
capabilities of the team to continue driving success.”
