"It was an honor to have served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of MagnaChip," said Mr. Tavakoli.

"I am thankful for the opportunity to serve as Chairman and look forward to working with the entire Board of Directors and the management team to transform MagnaChip into a pure-play products company to drive sustainable and profitable growth."
