Aixtron SE To Sell ALD/CVD Memory Product Line


Transaction expected to close in the second half of 2017

Deposition equipment firm Aixtron SE will sell its ALD (atomic layer deposition) and CVD (chemical vapour deposition) memory product line, based in Sunnyvale, California to Eugene Technology, a wholly owned US subsidiary of Eugene Technology, South Korea.

Aixtron, Inc, the US subsidiary of Aixtron SE will continue to provide sales and support for its continued businesses, as well as to pursue its thin film encapsulation (TFE) activities.

The agreed purchase price in a range between $45 million and $55 million will be paid in cash at closing. The purchase price includes inventory and other prepaid assets. Due to ongoing business, their value will be determined at time of closing.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals, including the Committee of Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) and is expected to close within the second half of 2017.

Management expects that this transaction will not affect the full year 2017 guidance with order intake and revenues between €180 and €210 million. This guidance includes the core business and the ALD/CVD business up to the date of sale.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
