PostSubject: Samsung merges HDD operation with Seagate   Wed Apr 20, 2011 11:26 pm

In a move that could help counter the effect of Western Digitalís acquisition of Hitachi, Samsung is also merging its storage division with Seagate. Itís an unlikely partnership but should be interesting to see if it can mount a good defense against WD.



Seagate
will now be running Samsungís HDD operations and merging it with its
own storage solutions. On the other hand, Samsung will have partial
ownership of Seagate.

  • Samsung combining its hard disk drive (HDD) operations into Seagate
  • Extending and enhancing the existing patent cross-license agreement between the companies
  • A NAND flash memory supply agreement under which Samsung will
    provide Seagate with its market-leading semiconductor products for use
    in Seagateís enterprise solid state drives (SSDs), solid state hybrid
    drives and other products
  • A disk drive supply agreement under which Seagate will supply disk drives to Samsung for PCs, notebooks and consumer electronics
  • Expanded cooperation between the companies to co-develop enterprise storage solutions
  • Samsung receiving significant equity ownership in Seagate
  • A shareholder agreement under which an executive of Samsung will be nominated to join Seagateís Board of Directors

The combined value of these transactions and agreements is
approximately $1.375 billion USD, which will be paid by Seagate to
Samsung in the form of 50% stock and 50% cash.
