  • STMicroelectronics of Geneva, Switzerland has signed an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Norstel AB of Norrkoping, Sweden, which was spun off from Linköping University in 2005 and develops and manufactures 150mm silicon carbide (SiC) bare and epitaxial wafers. ST says that, after closing, it will control the entire supply chain for a portion of its SiC devices at a time of constrained global capacity and position itself for a significant growth opportunity.
    ST will acquire 55% of Norstel’s share capital, with an option to acquire the remaining 45% subject to certain conditions, which, if exercised, will result in total consideration of $137.5m, funded with available cash.
