Foxconn to acquire piece of Quanta?

Posted on Tuesday, August 28 2007 @ 16:59:21 CEST by

Quanta's CEO Michael Wang stepped down over differences with the company's founder and chairman Barry Lam. Quanta is world's largest contract notebook maker, with clients like Apple and Dell.

Forbes reports Lam is planning big changes at Quanta, including the sale of a piece of the firm to Hon Hai Precision (Foxconn).
Wang is known to favor keeping Quanta as an independent entity, relying for support on the emergence of new products, rather than merging it with a big electronics conglomerate like Hon Hai, a combination that may pose a certain degree of conflict of interest with respect to top-tier clients whose names include Apple, Hewlett-Packard and Dell.

His vision was said to be in conflict with that of Lam, who has become increasingly worried about Quanta’s growth prospects and its place in the wider high-tech industry following a flurry of news reports speculating about the state of his health.

While analysts in general do not expect a full-fledged merger between Quanta and Hon Hai so much as some sort of a strategic equity alliance between the two, the Taiwanese market was ripe with rumors detailing possibilities such as an all-stock merger involving a pricing ratio based on every 2.5 Quanta shares for one Hon Hai share.
