SK hynix Inc. today announced that it has completed the first phase of the transaction to acquire Intel’s NAND and solid-state drive (SSD) business. Following the recent merger clearance from China’s State Administration for Market Regulation on Dec. 22, SK hynix closed the first phase of the transaction by acquiring Intel’s SSD business and the Dalian NAND flash manufacturing facility in China. In exchange, SK hynix will pay US $7 billion in consideration. In the second phase of the transaction, SK hynix will acquire from Intel the remaining assets in relation to its NAND business, including IP related to the manufacture and design of NAND flash wafers, R&D employees for NAND flash wafers, the Dalian facility workforce, and the other associated tangible / intangible assets. Closing of the second phase is expected to occur in or after March 2025 with the remaining payment of US $2 billion, which will complete the entire deal. The newly established U.S subsidiary, which will manage the newly acquired SSD business, will be known as “Solidigm” (www.solidigmtechnology.com). This name reflects Solidigm’s commitment to creating a new solid-state paradigm that provides unmatched customer service and revolutionizes the memory storage industry.
