Other Events


Item 8.01.Other Events.

On September 29, 2011, Amkor issued a joint press release with Toshiba Corporation announcing that they had signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding for the acquisition by Amkor of Toshiba Electronics Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. ("TEM"), Toshiba's semiconductor assembly operation in Malaysia, together with a license to Amkor for certain related intellectual property rights. The Malaysia facility is engaged in the assembly and test of primarily power discrete semiconductors. On November 14, 2011, Amkor and Toshiba jointly announced that, in light of severe flooding in Thailand affecting the operations of a subsidiary of Toshiba, they had jointly agreed to postpone discussions regarding the proposed acquisition.

Discussions between Amkor and Toshiba regarding the possible acquisition of TEM have resumed, although any transaction is subject to the satisfactory conclusion of due diligence, negotiation and signing of definitive agreements and receipt of any necessary government approvals. The final purchase price has not yet been determined, but it is currently expected that Amkor will pay in the range of 7.2 billion (approximately $76 million) in cash plus a license royalty to be determined, and provide additional working capital for the business following closing.
