Foxconn has offered Toshiba in its semiconductor business of $ 27 billion
History around the sale of semiconductor business of Toshiba continues to make interesting twists. We will remind, the company estimates the business about 13 billion dollars. The analysts initially claimed that Toshiba can sell it for no more than 7-8 billion.
However, at the end of last month it became known that the American investment firm Silver Lake Partners and American manufacturer of semiconductor chips Broadcom has offered Toshiba 17.9 billion dollars for its semiconductor production.
It turned out that this is not the limit. According to Reuters, Foxconn is willing to pay the Japanese giant $ 27 billion for the semiconductor industry! Recall that Foxconn is considered undesirable by the purchaser of semiconductor business of Toshiba due to the company’s ties with mainland China. However, such a generous offer could persuade Toshiba to a positive response. It is also unclear whether the company finally decided to sell the entire business or all the same will keep 20% as was originally planned.
