Here's some extensive coverage of the Matcha acquisition from Israeli newspaper Haaretz. http://www.haaretz.com/business/.premium-1.541525 The paper adds: "Apple is expanding its operations in Israel, with a massive new office space being rented in a new Herzliya project. Apple signed a contract to lease 12,500 square meters of office space in Bayside Land Corporation’s O2 development in Herzliya Pituach’s industrial zone, according to Bayside’s quarterly financial report, released yesterday. Construction on the building that will house Apple’s employees began last year and is expected to finish next year, with Apple slated to occupy the building next year. Renting enough space to house 600-1,200 employees signals Apple’s intends to significantly increase its development team in Israel over the next several years. It has been expanding its Israeli operations rapidly ever since it first entered the country in late 2011, with a current estimated workforce of 400-600 employees. The workers are at three development centers that focus on storage space, processors and communications chips."
