THE COVINGTON CHIP (1997)
Article in PC Week Oct 1997
Intel zeros in on power by Richard Barry
PC Week can exclusively reveal Intel's Pentium II plans leading up to the millennium. The chip manufacturer is re-engineering the P11 processor to create a faster; cheaper chip, code-named Covington, which will be released some time in 1998 and manufactured on a 0.25 micron process.
Covington will be the second generation P11 processor and represents a major change in the cornpany's approach to the sub-$1,000 (£595) market, which it terms "segment zero". Previously Intel largely ignored this market. An industry source said: "The plan is to introduce a powerful Pentium II at a much lower entry without affecting performance." The source added: "Intel is touting two technologies at segment zero. Covington will be its answer to AMD's K6+ 3D and the IDT Winchip+, which both have L2 cache built into the chips."
Intel is also working on a Pentium II that uses an enhanced MMX (MMX2) instruction set on a 0.25 micron process, code named Katmai and scheduled for release in early 1999. Katmai will also be aimed at the consumer market and is likely to have 30 graphics capabilities built in. A much more powerful processor; code named Willamette, is due by Q4 1999. Little is known about Willamette except that it has a large cache and will perform below the 64-bit Merced chip.
Before the planned processors appear, Intel will debut its 0.25 micron process with the long awaited Deschutes processor which will be formally announced on January 26 as a 333MHz desktop processor with a 512Kb cache. The mobile version of the chip, which will benefit from the 0.25 micron process cooler, faster performance, will be announced in mid-1998.
The industry source also confirmed that by the summer of 1998, Intel will be releasing 350MHz and 450MHz Pentium II processors on a slot 2 configuration with up to 2Mb of level 2 cache running at the same speed as the processor. Slot II will be primarily focused at the high-end workstation market where it will support up to four processors.
Intel refused to comment on unannounced products.
Wikipedia entry within Celeron subject reads
Intel Celeron Covington
Launched in April 1998, the first Covington Celeron was essentially a 266 MHz Pentium II manufactured without any secondary cache at all. Covington also shared the 80523 product code of Deschutes. Although clocked at 266 or 300 MHz (frequencies 33 or 66 MHz higher than the desktop version of the Pentium w/MMX), the cacheless Celerons had trouble outcompeting the parts they were designed to replace. Substantial numbers were sold on first release, largely on the strength of the Intel name, but the Celeron quickly
achieved a poor reputation both in the trade press and among computer professionals.
The initial market interest faded rapidly in the face of its poor performance and with sales at a very low level, Intel felt obliged to develop a substantially faster replacement as soon as possible. Nevertheless, the first Celerons were quite popular among some overclockers, for their flexible overclockability and reasonable price. Covington was only manufactured in Slot 1 SEPP format.

Covington's Gamble article by Mike McKee - The Recorder/Cal Law, November 9, 1999
“In D.C., Covington & Burling is a player, but will that translate to big business in Silicon Valley? James Snipes knows what he's up against in San Francisco.
On the East Coast, his 80-year-old, Washington, D.C.-based law firm boasts major name recognition and commands instant respect. It's a big player in regulatory and government circles, represents the National Football League, and has strong ties to the White House. But in the Bay Area, Covington & Burling doesn't carry quite the same cachet, particularly in the Silicon Valley, where the firm -- which opened a Financial District office in June -- hopes to make a big splash in the intellectual property pool.
"Sometimes you are met with a blank stare, and that's especially true with companies that are just starting up," admits Snipes, the upbeat, 46-year-old managing partner of Covington's S.F. branch. "We have a lot of people out there who know nothing about our practice."
And that's got to change if Covington -- which had never before opened a domestic office outside its Washington headquarters -- intends to fit into the Bay Area's pressure-cooker, high-tech market. It's not that Covington doesn't have IP credentials. It represents Microsoft Corp. on some fronts and does work for a few Valley firms already. It also has an IP team numbering about 30 lawyers in San Francisco, Washington, London and Brussels, Belgium. And it just merged with a 60-lawyer New York firm with East Coast IP recognition.
It's just that to West Coasters Covington -- as with most D.C. firms -- is synonymous with regulatory law. For example, Washington partner Peter Barton Hutt is a former chief counsel for the Food and Drug Administration, and just days ago partner Richard Meserve was sworn in as chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
In fact, Robert Taylor, managing partner in the Menlo Park office of Washington's Howrey & Simon, says he didn't even know Covington had an IP practice. And David Slone, managing partner of the Palo Alto branch of Townsend and Townsend and Crew -- a well-known patent firm -- says Covington never comes to mind in West Coast IP circles.
"If you asked 10 venture capitalists if they've heard of them, I couldn't tell you if they have or not," Slone says. "If you asked 10 patent lawyers if they'd heard of them, I'd say most have not. They'd say: 'Isn't that a New York firm?'"
That pretty much sums up 400-lawyer Covington's slightly prickly predicament: how to show it can compete in the rough-and-tumble Silicon Valley IP wars without sacrificing the core values and traditions that established it as one of the nation's premier white-shoe firms. After all, many brand-name firms have arrived in the Valley with a reputation of being one of the big dogs only to slink away later with their tails between their legs.
"Irell & Manella was in Palo Alto. They're a fabulous firm in L.A., and they didn't make it," notes Martha Africa, a principal with the consulting firm Major, Hagen & Africa. "Brown & Bain, from Phoenix, sank into the sunset." She says Covington is up against its reputation of not being a tech firm. "The best thing they could do," she says, "is talk about who their clients are locally and their reasons for being here."
Snipes, who transferred to the Bay Area from the London office, doesn't disagree, but says a lot of people's perceptions about Covington are dated. "Some folks still think of us the way we were 30 years ago -- as a regulatory firm, only as an East Coast firm, a firm that represents only Fortune 500 companies," he says. "So what we need to do is show them that we can do for them what local firms can do, that we can plug some holes for them -- to do the regulatory and international [work] as well.
"Being the new kids on the block," he adds, "we
need to give them compelling reasons to come to us."
Covington & Burling opened its S.F. office with seven lawyers, five from its D.C. headquarters and two from its London branch. The office is up to nine lawyers now -- four partners and five associates -- and Snipes believes it will top out at 20 to 25 lawyers within a few years. Sitting in his 19th-floor office at 601 California St. with its view of Coit Tower and the Transamerica Pyramid, Snipes explains that Covington was pressured by high-tech clients to establish a West Coast presence. "Covington was one of the largest firms in the U.S. that didn't have a domestic branch office," he notes, "and the Bay Area was the clear choice for us."
That's because the firm -- ranked by The American Lawyer magazine as 70th nationally in annual revenue at $152 million and $485,000 in profits per partner -- wanted to raise its high-tech profile. The firm's Washington headquarters already services high-tech clients right across the Potomac River in Northern Virginia's Dulles Corridor, but wanted a broader geographic scope.
"Obviously, the Dulles Corridor is important, but Silicon Valley is the center of things," says partner Sonya Winner, Covington's chief litigation lawyer in S.F. "And it really goes beyond Silicon Valley. We have a lot of West Coast clients and are obviously looking to get more. And going 20 miles to Dulles is very different than going a couple thousand miles out here." Snipes adds that it's "hard to stay on top of what's going on without being out here."
The firm's West Coast move is part of a larger expansion this year. Just last month, Covington merged with New York's Howard, Smith & Levin, a 60-lawyer firm that specializes in corporate mergers and acquisitions. "That firm also had a strong high-tech focus, and they've done a lot of work with start-ups in Silicon Alley in New York," Snipes points out. "It gives us real depth and expertise in public M&A and sophisticated finance work. And that's an expertise we think will be very valuable to companies in the Valley."
The S.F. office will emphasize work in telecommunications, information technology and biotech, Snipes says. Besides Microsoft -- for whom Covington is doing work on a software piracy case and representing its interests on the Secured Digital Music Initiative, an effort by several companies to develop a method for digitally downloading music in a secure format -- Covington represents Caliper Technologies Corp., a Mountain View-based microchip company; Electronic Arts, a Redwood City entertainment software company; and San Jose's Adobe Systems Inc.
Snipes says the game plan for the Bay Area is still to sell Covington as an all-purpose firm that has not only tech resources, but also expertise in many fields.
"There's a lot of appeal for one-stop shopping on regulatory and corporate and commercial work," he says. "It's always more efficient and cost-effective if you can get that all under one roof."
It also helps, he says, to have offices in a couple of Europe's capital cities, especially if, for example, a biotech start-up in Silicon Valley wants to conduct a deal with a European pharmaceutical company. "What are the commercial and regulatory obstacles you face in getting a drug approved and marketed in Europe?" Snipes says. "Frankly, these days a lot of key commercial transactions are cross-border."
Ironically, though, Covington's S.F. office was the center of attention last week for two strikingly non-tech matters. The firm filed suit on behalf of Bank of America, challenging San Francisco voters' initiative preventing banks from charging non-customers fees for using automated teller machines. It also sued for the NFL, accusing several Northern California bars of illegally televising blacked-out Oakland Raiders games.
"Both of those are pre-existing clients, and both of those
clients took advantage of our physical presence here," says S.F. partner
Winner. "Obviously, when we have an office here, we don't have to have
local counsel, and for cases like those, that's the biggest issue."
DEFYING THE NORM
What's most surprising to local lawyers is the fact that Covington isn't taking the classic approaches to establish itself as a Valley power: The firm doesn't plan to hire any big-name lateral partners for instant credibility and it opted for an S.F. office rather than acquiring space in Silicon Valley hot spots like Palo Alto or Menlo Park.
"It's never been our style to go out and hire bodies. Our basic model is that we will grow and promote from within," Snipes says. "With time we could change our view, but our experience so far is that we've had great success on the basis of our firm's reputation."
Lynn Pasahow, a biotech and patent litigation partner in McCutchen, Doyle, Brown & Enersen's Palo Alto office, and Guy Chambers, an S.F.-based Townsend partner, say it's almost essential for a new firm to hire a well-established local lawyer with a good practice in place.
"Certainly, that's the recipe a number of these other firms have used," Chambers says. Pasahow points out that that was the approach used by Washington's Howrey & Simon, New York's Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and Los Angeles-based Latham & Watkins and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, a D.C.-based IP boutique that's been in Palo Alto slightly more than two years, followed the same pattern by hiring Ian Ballon, a leading expert on Internet law, from Brown & Bain.
"That has helped us a lot," says Palo Alto managing partner C. Larry O'Rourke. "It's very important to try to integrate into the legal community here. It's quite different than the East Coast."
But it's easier to talk about grabbing a big name than doing it. "It's harder to attract good lawyers than it is clients," says Howrey's Taylor. "There's a tremendous growth in the demand for legal services, but the problem is that all the law firms are clamoring for a small universe of people."
Anna Marie Armstrong, a legal search consultant for Major, Hagen, seconds that idea.
"It's getting harder to get those really big rainmaker partners to come over," says Armstrong, who has done some work for Covington. "Either [Covington is] going to maintain that traditional character -- there are still people who want the stability of that -- or they can try to sort of mold themselves somewhat differently out here."
Even so, local experts say Covington may regret not having opened an office in Silicon Valley proper.
"If their business plan is to represent Valley firms, it's critical to have an office in the Valley," says Pasahow of McCutchen. "The Valley thinks of itself, as it should, as a special place that has invented a way of doing business.! It's part of being a community, of being part of the networks, of showing your participation in the community by having an office here."
Snipes says Covington considered a San Francisco office "a sensible first step." It was good for recruiting lawyers, he says, and was based partly on the belief that Silicon Valley is inching northward.
"If we need to establish a presence [in the Valley] later, it
could be done," he adds. "But my hunch is that we'll establish a
presence in Asia before we do more here."
There are some predictions that Covington might encounter a bit of culture shock, or at the very least a culture clash. Silicon Valley legal life can be quite casual, and some East Coast lawyers find it difficult to let go of their more formal standards.
"They come with their pinstripe suits and red ties, particularly to a place like Apple [Computer Inc.], and they may find they won't get a friendly welcome," says Townsend's Chambers. "There's a different approach toward business [in Silicon Valley] that's less regimented."
Slone of Townsend says that any law firm wanting to do business in Silicon Valley must realize they will have to conform to the local culture. "In the old days, the West Coast was the minor leagues, and everyone had an inferiority complex," he says. "And now, as far as technology goes, we're at the center of the universe. The notion is that whatever the culture will be, the culture here will prevail."
Finnegan, Henderson's O'Rourke says his firm made some adjustments to life in Palo Alto as soon as he arrived.
"The very first was [going] casual 100 percent of the time. In D.C., we have casual Fridays," he says. "Very seldom do we have clients that have a suit and tie on [in Palo Alto]. They are younger, and other than that I guess the atmosphere is fairly informal, generally, in California."
Snipes admits that Covington wondered whether its core values -- training, ethics and quality of service -- could be translated to the West Coast. "The sense was that some firms had faced problems when a different culture arose in a branch office," he says. But in the long run, firm leaders realized they had to take a chance because it was "in [clients'] interests and our interests to be here."
Actually, casualness appears to be the norm in the S.F. office. Snipes was tieless during a recent visit and other partners were dressed very casually, one even in shorts.
The firm, however, has decided that it's not in its best interests to follow another uniquely Silicon Valley law practice -- taking equity in clients. Even within the Valley, the concept is controversial.
"The real problem is the ethical conflict," Snipes says. "Can we be sure that if we hold equity in a client that we would be completely dispassionate in the work we do and the advice we give?"
For example, he says, would the firm find it an added incentive to push through a deal if the lawyers knew the stock would jump? "The question," Snipes says, "is whether one can square it with one's duty to the client." Covington isn't alone in its stance. Neither Finnegan, Henderson nor Townsend have made it po
"There's technically potential conflicts," Slone says, "but at first blush, you say you are throwing your lot in with the client, so how can you be in conflict? We are moving kind of cautiously in that realm, but there seems to be a widespread enough desire to get something like that off the ground that we are beyond asking whether we shall do it, [it's] just how will we do it?"
Some firms also use the practice as a recruiting tool in order to sway young lawyers who might be thinking about going in house for a potentially lucrative start-up.
Overall, it seems that Covington has a lot to overcome -- establishing itself as an IP player without hiring a local big gun and without setting up shop in Silicon Valley. And also trying to appeal to junior lawyers who might see a big-firm practice as stagnating.
Snipes isn't worried. "I make the pitch that we are a start-up too. Here we need all hands on board and there is plenty of responsibility and not layers and layers of staffing on everything," he says. "What we offer here is a big-firm practice in a small-office setting."
In addition, time is on his side.
"We're starting with a very supportive parent," Snipes says. "There is no fixed time to turn a certain profit, and that's taken the edge off."
SEARS NAMES NEW APPAREL BRAND COVINGTON
Publication: Retail Merchandiser , Date: Tuesday, April 23 2002
Roebuck and Co. said on Monday its new private-label brand of conservatively
styled casual clothing will be called Covington and will replace eight other
proprietary lines including Crossroads, Fieldmaster
and Trader Bay.
Sears, the No. 4 U.S. retailer, had previously announced plans for a clothing brand for men, women and children as part of its effort to overhaul its apparel business, which has lost ground to competitors like Kohl's Corp. and Target Corp. in recent years.
Investors have been eager for details on the apparel line since it was first announced as part of a broad restructuring of Sears' 860 department stores last fall.
Some of the new line will be in stores in time for the back-to-school season, and the balance will be introduced in September, the company said on a conference call with analysts last week.
Sears said Covington apparel is expected to generate several hundred million dollars on an annual basis. The line of khaki pants, turtlenecks, shoes, sweaters and handbags aims to provide consumers with "better-quality, high-value wardrobe essentials," the company said. Items range in price from $10 for children's jerseys to $60 for men's leather boots.
One retail consultant said the Covington name conjured up class. "The names sound good and is very British-sounding," Kurt Barnard, president of Barnard's Retail Consulting Group, said. "It sounds classy, and Sears needed some classiness in its soft goods [apparel] line."
In its first-quarter earnings report last week, Sears said its apparel sales fell by a percentage in the high single digits, but the retailer reported good sales of items like appliances.
Nonetheless, Merrill Lynch retail analyst Daniel Barry wrote last week that Sears "has an uphill battle ahead" in its effort to improve apparel sales.
New York — The assets of decorative fabric supplier Covington Holdings LLC, including the Covington name, have been purchased by the Kahan family.
The Kahans have long been active in the fabric business, operating Osgood Textile Co. in West Springfield, Mass., a large retailer of decorative and apparel fabrics. The retailer was started in 1948 by the late Herb Kahan, father of Robert Kahan who today heads the retailer. Herb Kahan's son, Mark S. Kahan will become chairman of the new entity, which will be known as Covington Fabric & Design LLC. Mayer Kahan, Robert's son and Mark's nephew, becomes evp. Mark's son Jonathan will work on the company's computer system upgrade. Several other Kahan family members, spouses and in-laws are also investors.
Roger Gilmartin, an owning partner in CH LLC, remains with the company as president and ceo. Gilmartin said, "I think the industry knows that I have been searching for a strategic investor for Covington for some time. I am excited by the opportunity that this transaction will create for all the constituents in our business and I look forward to becoming a textile guy again after two years of dealing with bankers and lawyers."
Gilmartin noted, "The whole team will be the same, and we will be at furniture market in High Point and we have a new line in the pipeline for introduction at Showtime in June." In the next few months, he added, "We will be introducing members of the family to key customers and to key vendors around the world."
In addition, Covington will show at one of the off-site locations during Proposte in Cernobbio; at HD in Las Vegas; and Decosit in Brussels in September. Gilmartin, with other investors, bought Covington from the founding Gilmore family in January 2006. The company originated in 1940 and grew to be one of the largest decorative fabrics converters in the marketplace. In October 2007, Covington was refinanced.
Mark Kahan told HTT, "My family have known and been a customer of Covington for over 40 years. We were very excited when the opportunity to acquire a business with Covington's name and reputation became available.". He added, "We know that the last few years have been difficult for the company, but the underlying fundamentals of the business are strong with loyal customers, vendors and associates, and we believe that properly funded, the company can continue to be a major player in the home furnishings market."
"The idea for our involvement originated with Bob and Mayer. They were aware that the original LBO wasn't working out, and intersected with Roger," said Mark Kahan, the retired head of Spirit Airlines and an attorney. "We got the impression that the business could be fixed and there was no doubt it could operate on eight cylinders vs. the four cylinders it was currently on. It is a franchise that could be rebuilt."
He added, "I don't claim to be an expert on decorative fabrics, but I'm not here because I'm an expert — Mayer is: he has five years experience at retail in fabrics. He has a lot of energy and will help restore the credibility in the market and in the product. We will restore the company's reputation for delivery."
Mark Kahan does bring financial, legal and regulatory acumen. Intellectual property protection "is very important. If businesses in the 21st century don't find ways to protect design, they will have problems," he emphasized. Relating his family retail experience to Covington, Mayer Kahan said, "We're a roll up the sleeves type of place. We're going to stock a lot of goods, which is the Covington reputation, and we're going to be a fashion business — we have to be on the cutting edge and adapt to new markets." Among these are a renewed emphasis on prints and outdoor fabrics — "a first step."
