ageo Corp (國巨) yesterday said its US$1.64 billion acquisition of Kemet Corp would help it break intothe high-end automotive, industrial and 5G components segments.
The deal is expected to boost the company’s net profit by at least 80 percent and double its revenue to about US$3 billion when it is completed in the second half of next year, the world’s third-largest supplier of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) told a media briefing in Taipei.
It announced earlier in the day that it would acquire all of Kemet’s common shares at US$27.2 per share in an all-cash transaction.
