Marvell, Inphi To Unite Creating $40B Semiconductor Giant

Marvell Technology Group has agreed to buy Inphi for about US$10 billion in cash and stock, making for the second mega chip deal this week, reported Bloomberg.

The chipmaker plans to reorganize the combined company and domicile in the US, creating a US$40 billion semiconductor powerhouse.

“Our acquisition of Inphi will fuel Marvell’s leadership in the cloud and extend our 5G position over the next decade,” Marvell CEO Matt Murphy said in a statement.

Under the terms of the agreement, Inphi shareholders will receive US$66 cash and 2.323 Marvell shares for each Inphi share they own. The deal represents an approximate 74% premium to the US$5.76 billion market cap Inphi closed with on Wednesday, October 28.
