英特尔8月完成收购意法爱立信GPS1600名员工失业

发布时间:2020-01-14 20:17:39 阅读: 来源:球阀厂家

元器件交易网讯 29日消息,意法爱立信(ST-Ericsson)于今日宣布将GPS移动导航业务出售给英特尔。此次收购巩固了英特尔在移动芯片领域的地位,但都未公布收购金额。英特尔购买意法爱立信的GPS部门已得到监管部门的批准,预计它将在2013年8月完成业务转让。该交易将把意法爱立信所有与导航有关的知识产权全部转让给英特尔,这也意味着英特尔要接手英国、班加罗尔和新加坡公司的130名GPS研究团队员工。此次收购造成约1600名意法爱立信员工面临失业问题。

意法-爱立信是瑞典电信设备制造商爱立信和法国意法半导体公司合作成立的企业,是继高通之后的第二大手机芯片制造商。但在美国市场,意法爱立信不敌高通。在亚洲市场也面临强劲挑战。到目前为止,意法爱立信累计亏损27亿美元,仅去年就亏损7.49亿美元。意法-爱立信今年3月宣布分拆意法爱立信。

此次重组预计将于今年第三季度完成。意法爱立信首席运营官卡尔洛·费罗(Carlo Ferro)已被任命为公司CEO兼总裁,负责此次重组。(元器件交易网郭路平 译)

Intel nabs mobile GPS business of moribund ST-Ericsson

Seeking to bolster its position in the mobile chip business, Intel has snapped up the GPS mobile navigation pision of failed semiconductor partnership ST-Ericsson for an undisclosed sum.

ST-Ercisson announced the sale on Tuesday without naming the buyer, but Reuters later reported that an Intel spokesperson confirmed Chipzilla"s involvement.

The sale gives ST-Ericsson a quick cash infusion while allowing it to avoid various restructuring costs, reducing its immediate cash needs by around $90m.

The ST-Ericsson partnership was formed in 2008 between Swedish telecom equipment maker Ericsson and French semiconductor firm STMicroelectronics, making the combined venture the second-largest mobile chipmaker after Qualcomm.

But size isn"t everything, and ST-Ericsson began posting losses almost immediately. It staggered on for five more unprofitable years before finally announcing in March of this year that it would dissolve, returning its core pisions to their respective founders.

On Tuesday, ST-Ericsson president and CEO Carlo Ferro hastened to put a brave face on the sale of the GPS pision to Intel.

"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," Ferro said in a canned statement.

The transaction will transfer all of ST-Ericsson"s navigation-related intellectual property to Intel, which is also expected to take on the company"s team of 130 GPS-related employees based in the UK, Bangalore, and Singapore.

That"s more than can be said for approximately 1,600 ST-Ericsson employees who are expected to get the axe as the partnership winds down operations this year.

Intel"s purchase of ST-Ericsson"s GPS pision is subject to regulatory approval but is expected to close by August 2013. ?
