Foundries to buy DRAM fabs?

Posted on Friday, November 25 2011 @ 22:08:18 CET by

DigiTimes heard DRAM makers Powerchip Technology and ProMOS Technologies may sell fabs to improve their financial structures. Possibly buyers include foundries TSMC, UMC, Globalfoundries and VIS.
Globalfoundries appears to be the latest bidder, expressing its interest in the fabs, the sources indicated. TSMC, UMC and VIS reportedly have been eyeing 12-inch facilities from local DRAM firms in Taiwan, offering prices between NT$9 billion (US$297 million) and NT$12 billion.

Powerchip currently has three 12-inch wafer fabs at the Hsinchu Science Park (HSP), northern Taiwan while ProMOS' 12-inch wafer fab is located in Taichung, central Taiwan.
