Activist investors are trying to extract value from O2Micro (NASDAQ:OIIM), fabless semiconductor company that is worth more dead than alive. It trades at a negative $18 million enterprise value not including valuable real estate and investments. While revenues are declining and the company burns through almost $2 million a quarter, its $52 million in cash could see it through until either the company is turned around or it is sold. Its poison pill structure as a Cayman Island company has made activism a difficult task.
