Micron snaps up rest of Inotera
US memory maker Micron has bought the rest of Inotera, strengthening its position in the DRAM market.
Micron already owned a third of Inotera and it will pay $3.2 billion to buy a majority share.
The situation is a little complicated, according to Taiwanese wire Digitimes, because Formosa Group, which owns its own memory company Nanya, has 32 percent of the shares of Inotera.
But it’s understood that Formosa will vote in favour of the acquisition. At the same time, Micron said it has made a contract to give Nanya an option to license its new technology.
Micron already has a deal with Nanya to license its 20 nanometre technology.
All in all, this gives Micron a far stronger position in a market largely dominated by South Korean giants Samsung and Hynix. Earlier this year, Tsinghua – a mainland China state-backed comglomerate, made a failed bid to buy Micron..
