SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co announced Tuesday a $8.5 billion deal to supply liquid crystal displays to Dell Computer Corp that would provide the financing needed to build a next-generation LCD plant.
``The deal with Dell Computer means that Samsung has acquired the necessary funding to build the fourth-generation TFT-LCD plant and to continue its research to improve the technology,'' the company said in a statement.
``The plant should help to solidify Samsung's position as a leader in this industry,'' it said.
Samsung Electronics, the flagship company of Samsung Group, said it would sign the deal with Dell Friday to provide the U.S.-based computer manufacturer with thin-film-transistor-LCD screens for the next five years.
As part of the deal, Dell would buy $200 million of convertible bonds to be issued Friday by Samsung Electronics. The price at which the bonds could be converted into Samsung shares was set at a 30 percent premium to last Friday's closing price of 200,000 won.
