Fujitsu To Sell Chip Operations to Spansion


Spansion will acquire the Microcontroller and Analog Business of Fujitsu Semiconductor for approximately $110 million, plus approximately $65 million for inventory, Spansion and Fujitsu ltd announced today.

The net impact is expected to be accretive for Spansion in 2013.

"This acquisition provides incremental revenue and aligns with our strategy to expand into system-on-chip solutions that require leadership in embedded Flash technology," said John Kispert, president and CEO of Spansion. "We will gain valuable people and intellectual property as well as microcontroller and analog products that will enable us to expand our customer base, addressing complete embedded systems requirements in automotive, industrial and consumer markets. We have been strategic partners with Fujitsu Semiconductor for decades and share many of the same customers. We expect a seamless transition for all of the employees and customers."

"In our pursuit of maximized corporate value, together with Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited, we have executed a management decision based on the restructuring initiatives we are taking in our semiconductor business," said Masami Yamamoto, President of Fujitsu Limited. "We are confident that our customers will benefit from the enormous synergies anticipated. Our employees will also benefit by being a part of Spansion, which has a complementary and differentiated product portfolio based on its world-leading nonvolatile memory technologies."

Embedded nonvolatile memory has become one of the most important differentiators within the microcontroller market and addresses needs for faster and more intelligent devices for a range of embedded applications.

The acquisition is subject to various customary closing conditions and is expected to be complete between July and September of 2013.

Spansion was set up in 2004 jointly by Fujitsu and AMD.

Fujitsu is also negotiating with Panasonic to integrate their "system large-scale integration" (system LSI) chip operations.

Withdrawal from the microcontrollers and system LSI operations would leave the company with the production of chips only for use in Fujitsu computers.
