AMD CFO: x86 license no issue for merger or takeover

Speaking at last week's Jefferies global technology, media and telecom conference, AMD Chief Financial Officer Devinder Kumar noted that contrary to what many industry observers believe, the x86 license deal with Intel is not at risk of termination should the firm enter into joint ventures, mergers or acquisitions agreements.
“It is a cross-license, they use our technology all the time, especially in the x86 space that AMD has innovated in […] and there are patterns in place for that,” said Devinder Kumar at Jefferies global technology, media and telecom conference. “There is a lot of stuff that we invented or we deployed first, which the competition uses, it is not a one thing or three, which is a mistaken perception on the market that it is AMD using technologies that the competition has, as opposed to the other way around, it is a cross-license.”


“Is there anything, any impediment from an M&A or joint-venture standpoint? The answer is no, there is no impediment from an overall M&A standpoint regarding the cross-license,” said Mr. Kumar.
More details about Kumar's statement and the x86 license deal between Intel and AMD can be read at KitGuru.
