Changelight Raises Finance To Expand InGaN LED Production

Company to raise $130.39 million by share issue

Chinese LED manufacturer Changelight is issuing 6.07 million stocks to raise a total of $130.39 million financing to expand production of InGaN LED EPI-wafers.

The company's InGaN LED EPI-wafer expansion project, which involves establishing a new factory, is expected to cost around $217 million. Under the company's production plans, the new factory production capabilities will cover all GaN LED model products, and bring InGaN LED chip production to 5,239 KK per month or 62.87 billion PCS per year. 

Retail revenue from the project is expected to reach $196 million, and net profit during the factory's operation period is expected to reach $20 million, and gross profit margin to 29.23 percent, while net profit margin will be 11.60 percent.

InGaN LED EPI-wafers tend to have the classical features of a capital-intensive and technology-intensive industry, according to sources. The recent financing would support Changelight's advancements in the LED chip manufacturing industry. 

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.
