SAN FRANCISCO — Microchip Technology plans to acquire Microsemi Corp. for about $8.35 billion in cash under the terms of a definitive agreement announced Thursday (March 1).
The deal would significantly expand Microchip's presence in several end markets, including the communications and aerospace and defense markets, which make up about 60 percent of Microsemi's sales. Microchip said the acquisition would expand its serviceable market by about $18 billion to more than $50 billion.
The combined company would have annual sales of about $5.8 billion, based on each firm's revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017.
