Shining a light on Panasonic sale to Nuvoton

When quantity is not enough

When we see that Panasonic will transfer over 1,400 US patents as part of its recent sale to Nuvoton, what do we hear? On the one hand, Panasonic is delivering against its commitment to exiting unprofitable businesses. Panasonic Semiconductor Solutions (PSCS) sold for $250m, with losses of $214m. On the other hand, Winbond, and its subsidiary Nuvoton, is committed to growing its business even in the face of increased competition and an unstable geopolitical situation.

What is included in the sale?
