VIA Technologies heeft voor 14 miljoen dollar aan S3 aandelen gekocht. Interessant om te zien wat ze hier nu weer mee van plan zijn...
Taiwan's VIA Technologies Inc said today it had bought 1.35 million shares or 2.5 percent of U.S. firm S3 Inc for US$14.07 million. VIA Tech bought the S3 stake at US$10.419 per share, a company spokeswoman told Reuters.
``We already have cooperation in product development with S3, and we hope to strengthen ties through the purchase,'' she said.
The spokeswoman declined to elaborate.
In mid-September, VIA Tech said it had signed a final agreement to buy a stake in a subsidiary of U.S. firm Integrated Device Technology Inc for US$36 million. The deal followed VIA's August move to buy the assets of U.S. chip maker National Semiconductor Corp's (NYSE:NSM - news) money-losing Cyrix PC processor business for US$167 million.
