  • Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (NYSE: TSM) sold 38 million shares in VisEra Technologies at $8.60 (NT$240) per share before a planned initial public offering (IPO) of the image sensor provider reducing its stake to 73.9%, Bloomberg reports.

  • The sale was to facilitate a proposed listing of VisEra in Taiwan. 

  • TSM sold the shares to 17 investors, including Fidelity International, Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC Pte, and domestic institutions like Cathay Life Insurance Co. and Fubon Life Insurance Co.

  • TSM had set up VisEra in 2003 with Santa Clara, California-based OmniVision Technologies Inc., before buying out its partner in 2015.

  • TSM intends to spin off the unit following the semiconductor boom leading to surging chipmaker prices.

  • TSM shares have gained 139% in the last year, reaching a market cap of $578 billion as the semiconductor companies turned fabless by outsourcing their chip manufacturing to TSM.

  • Price action: TSM shares are up 1.95% at $131.6 in the pre-market session on the last check Wednesday.
