Micron Technology, Inc’s (NASDAQ:MU) 200 billion yen or $2.5 billion acquisition of bankrupt Japanese chip manufacturer Elpida Memory Inc would offer the United States corporation a stronger foundation to challenge Samsung Electronics Co in the market for memory used in computers and mobile gadgets.
Chief Executive Officer of Micron Technology Mark Durcan reported in a Bloomberg Television on Monday that they can observe so many synergies and so many opportunities to really become a much stronger rivalry in the memory space.
Purchasing Elpida, an Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) supplier, would double Micron’s share of the worldwide market for DRAM, the most generally used memory chips in personal computers, to almost 24%. The contract also increases Micron’s offering into types of memory used in smart phones and tablets while offering it greater control over supply gluts that have caused it to report losses among falling prices.
