ATREG successfully advises Micron on 200mm fab sale in Italy

USA: ATREG Inc., a global advisory firm to the semiconductor industry headquartered in Seattle, USA, announced that it has successfully advised Micron Technology Inc. in the sale of its semiconductor manufacturing subsidiary whose primary asset consists of an advanced 200mm CMOS image sensor fab based in Avezzano, Italy.

The facility was purchased by LFoundry, a leading German analog mixed-signal and specialized technologies foundry. As part of the agreement, Micron assigned the buyer its supply agreement with Aptina to manufacture image sensors at the Italian facility.

“This transaction is a win-win situation,” explains Barnett Silver, senior VP and principal at ATREG. “Aptina secures a long-term wafer supply while LFoundry gains access to an advanced, 200mm manufacturing operation. We are pleased to have been a part in facilitating such a successful outcome.”
