Subject: [Stoves] Philips stepping out of stove business

Dear Paul,

That is a very sad news for the cookstove industry!
Sorry to hear that. Philips is a credible actor, and could have driven forward the sector. Plus they have the shoulders and financial capacity, to do ambitious R&D and distribution.

Is it possible to know more about what happened, and why Philips took this decision?
