Intel Buys ST-Ericsson's GPS Business


ST-Ericsson, a joint venture of STMicroelectronics and Ericsson, today announced the sale of the assets and intellectual property rights (IPR) associated with its mobile connectivity Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) business to Intel.

In addition to the assets and IPR associated with this business, a team of 130 industry veterans located in Daventry (UK), Bangalore (India) and Singapore are anticipated to join Intel at closing of the transaction.

The closing of the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and standard conditions and is expected to be completed in August, 2013. Neither company revealed the price,, but ST-Ericsson estimates the proceeds from the sale, combined with the avoidance of employee restructuring charges and other related restructuring costs, will reduce the joint venture?s cash needs by approximately $90 million.

STMicro and Ericsson announced in March they were winding down ST-Ericsson, which has been hit by a big drop in orders from Nokia and has struggled to compete with other chipmakers.

"Today's transaction validates the leading innovation developed by ST-Ericsson in mobile navigation systems and marks a further important step towards the execution of our shareholders' decision to exit from ST-Ericsson" commented Carlo Ferro, President and CEO of ST-Ericsson. "I am pleased that this organization will continue to develop leading-edge technologies and delighted that the team found a new home at a leading player in the semiconductor industry."
