Avago Technologies Takes Over LSI For $6.6B


Chipmaker Avago Technologies Ltd. is buying LSI Corp. for $6.6 billion to help strengthen its position in the storage market.

The all-cash transaction is adding enterprise storage to Avago's existing wired infrastructure, wireless and industrial businesses.

"This highly complementary and compelling acquisition positions Avago as a leader in the enterprise storage market and expands our offerings and capabilities in wired infrastructure, particularly system-level expertise," stated Hock Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Avago. "This combination will increase the Company's scale and diversify our revenue and customer base. In addition to these powerful strategic benefits, as we integrate LSI onto the Avago platform, we expect to drive LSI's operating margins toward Avago's current levels, creating significant additional value for stockholders."

"This transaction provides immediate value to our stockholders, and offers new growth opportunities for our employees to develop a wider range of leading-edge solutions for customers," said Abhi Talwalkar, President and Chief Executive Officer of LSI. "Our leadership positions in enterprise storage and networking, in combination with Avago, create greater scale to further drive innovations into the datacenter."

Under the terms of the agreement, LSI's stockholders will receive $11.15 in cash for each share of LSI common stock they hold at closing, which is expected to occur during the first half of calendar 2014. Avago intends to fund the transaction with $1.0 billion of cash from the combined balance sheet and fully-committed financing from a group of banks and Silver Lake Partners.

Silver Lake Partners teamed with Michael Dell for the $24.9 billion acquisition of Dell. Avago said that Silver Lake's investment for the LSI transaction is expected to be a seven-year, 2 percent convertible note.

The transaction has been approved by the boards of directors of both companies and is subject to regulatory approvals in various jurisdictions and customary closing conditions, as well as the approval of LSI's stockholders.
