for his contribution, firstly to SiRF as a co-founder and
more recently to CSR since joining our Board on our
acquisition of SiRF in 2009, that has contributed greatly
to our strengths in location technology and the significant

Kanwar every success with his new ventures."

"I take great pride in my involvement in creating SiRF
and more recently in my part in the evolution of CSR's
strategy from a leading Bluetooth supplier to a supplier of
multiple differentiated platforms across many technologies.
It has been a pleasure to work with a team that is at the
forefront of developing innovative technologies and
providing exciting products that enrich the lives of so
many people. I believe that CSR is strategically well
positioned for the next growth phase and I wish everyone at
CSR continued success for the future."
