My thought is why have they waited? I do appreciate that they are increasing production, thank you IBM.

Probably becuase they weren't yeilding enough chips, so increasing the production by 40% would give you 40% more useless chips. IBM is just now getting the yields that they are comfortable with to invest in a major production increase.
