 07.07.2011   VIA Technologies vende S3 Graphics a HTC Corporation
 

Il chip maker taiwanense VIA Technologies ha annunciato la definizione di un accordo per la cessione delle sue quote relative alla società S3 Graphics, specializzata nello sviluppo di tecnologie e prodotti orientati alla grafica dei sistemi di tipo PC, gaming console e device mobile, a HTC Corporation, o in breve HTC.

Il costo dell'operazione è pari a 300 milioni di dollari statunitensi, una cifra senza dubbio notevole, ove si consideri che al momento la quota di mercato occupata dai prodotti di S3 Graphics non raggiunge la soglia del punto percentuale, nonostante l'azienda si faccia notare per lo sviluppo di soluzioni sempre nuove nel settore grafico.

Molti analisti di mercato sostengono che una simile mossa sia stata eseguita da HTC nell'ottica di rallentare o complicare, almeno temporaneamente, l'introduzione della tecnologia 3D nel prossimo iPhone di Apple.

Ricordiamo, infatti, che soltanto pochi giorni fa, il 4 luglio per la precisione, VIA ha vinto un processo contro Apple, accusata di aver violato alcuni brevetti di S3 Graphics. Ora che HTC possiede S3 Graphics, e naturalmente i suoi brevetti, la mission del costruttore taiwanense, finalizzata a contrastare lo sviluppo della nuova tecnologia di Apple per l'iPhone, risulta semplificata.



VIA Technologies, Inc. ("VIA") today announced the signing of definitive agreement to sell all of its shareholding in S3 Graphics Co., Ltd. ("S3 Graphics") to HTC Corporation ("HTC"). S3 Graphics is a leading provider of innovative graphics visualization technologies used in PCs, game consoles and, more recently, mobile devices.

VIA acquired S3 Graphics in 2001 with the intention to accelerate integration of graphics capabilities with its processor and chipset products. S3 Graphics became undercapitalized in 2005, and VIA introduced WTI Investment International, Ltd. ("WTI") as a new investor to help fund the operations and R&D initiatives. WTI is a private investment company, in which Cher Wang, Chairman of VIA, is a significant shareholder.

Under terms of the agreement with HTC, total consideration for all outstanding shares of S3 Graphics will be US$300 million. Of which, VIA will receive US$147 million; and WTI will receive US$153 million. VIA will recognize a capital gain of US$ $37 million and paid-in-capital of US$ 115 million in this transaction.

"The transaction would allow VIA to monetize a portion of its rich IP portfolio, yet retain its graphics capabilities to support the development and sale of its processors and chipsets," said Tzu-mu Lin, Senior Vice President and Board Director of VIA. "We wish to thank WTI for its capital contribution to support S3 Graphics since 2005."

The proposed transaction has received approvals from the boards of directors of VIA, WTI, and HTC. Subject to regulatory approvals and other customary conditions, the transaction is expected to close before end of 2011.
