Infineon Technologies IFNNY / IFX is a leading broad-based European chipmaker with nice exposure to secular growth drivers in the industrial and automotive chip sectors. Looking at the automotive chip market, vehicles with advanced powertrain technology and safety systems require a variety of sensors and power management chips supplied by companies like Infineon. Similarly, the company's exposure to power management circuits positions it to benefit from trends in the electronics industry toward power conservation, not only in more efficient devices like industrial drives, but also in green energy solutions like solar panels.
EUROPE MARKETS European markets rallied Monday on the perceived lightening of trade skirmishes among the U.S. and China, with tech stocks among the best performers. How did markets perform? The Stoxx 600 (XX:SXXP) rallied to 388.
(Bloomberg) -- European technology stocks reached the highest level since June 2018 after the U.S. and China signaled a truce in the trade dispute, and the U.S. said it would permit some companies to do business with blacklisted Huawei Technologies Co.Chipmakers in Europe have taken a hit since the U.S. blacklisted China's Huawei and scores of its affiliates around the world in May. That decision also exacerbated trade tensions between the U.S. and China, hurting chipmakers since China is a key end market for their components. Two silicon wafer companies, the U.K.’s IQE Plc and Germany’s Siltronic AG, both warned last month about the impact of the ban, and the broader effect of the trade war on the semiconductor sector.The Stoxx 600 Technology sub-index rose as much as 2.5%, the most intraday since April 24, with semiconductor firms leading the charge. AMS AG, STMicroelectronics and Infineon Technologies AG all surged, as did chip equipment makers like ASML Holding NV and ASM International NV.Conversely, telecoms equipment groups Nokia Oyj and Ericsson AB have benefited from the blacklisting of Huawei as it removed a key competitor for contracts to build the next generation of 5G mobile networks. Those two were among the worst performers in a mostly green tech sector on Monday morning.Here’s what analysts are saying:CowenCurtailing restrictions on Huawei “could temporarily improve sentiment” on the semiconductor capital equipment group. Although most of these companies, such as ASML and Applied Materials Inc., don’t sell directly to Huawei, they’ve been affected by recent semiconductor supply chain disruptions, the analysts said.Morgan Stanley“A resumption in trade talks is a step in the right direction, although it will not cure the fundamental problem of weaker demand and excess inventory that continues to plague semis. A resolution on trade could provide an important catalyst to help demand, but as of right now it feels like status quo.”Oddo“The readacross is positive for the smartphone market and the semiconductor market as the U.S. and China converge toward a deal. The halt on additional tariffs should also bring some stability to the semiconductor market.”Liberum“These moves are positive for the entire tech industry, especially semiconductor suppliers. The semiconductor down cycle is currently at its trough” with a new up cycle expected to start from the second half of the year, the analysts said.“The removal of sanctions on Huawei and the holding off of additional tariffs is likely to strengthen the recovery in coming months.’’New Street“First of all, it is worth noting this is not a full lift; tensions will remain. Second, it means China will accelerate the development of alternative supply chains and ecosystems. It means investments will probably accelerate, to the benefit of the semicap equipment industry.’’“On the 5G front, it means things will get back into motion. Huawei will likely lose some market share in Europe, where operators will continue to buy from Huawei but reduce exposure to the vendor, while European players will likely lose ground in China in similar magnitude.’’Baader Helvea“The positive element certainly is Trump’s softened stance on Huawei, which has not been expected ahead of the meeting. This may raise hopes that a technology war can be averted. However, the Huawei issue will probably be part of any trade deal and may only be addressed at a later stage when other stumbling stones have been resolved.’’(Adds analyst comments.)To contact the reporters on this story: Sam Unsted in London at firstname.lastname@example.org;Kasper Viita in London at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Beth Mellor at firstname.lastname@example.org, Monica Houston-WaeschFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Infineon Technologies AG raised about 1.55 billion euros ($1.74 billion) in a capital increase to help finance its acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor Corp.The German chipmaker, which analysts have said may be paying too much for its U.S. rival, sold about 113 million new shares at 13.70 euros each, the company said Tuesday in a statement. The price was about 4.6% below Monday’s closing price of 14.36 euros and the shares fell as much as 6.6% in early trading in Frankfurt to the lowest in almost three years.Infineon is buying San Jose, California-based Cypress -- a memory-chip maker re-positioning itself as a provider to automobiles and other connected devices -- for an enterprise value of 9 billion euros. The combined entity would have sales that would place it among the top 10 chipmakers globally, according to Citibank.Some analysts have questioned the wisdom of the deal. The price is high and cost and revenue synergies will have to be achieved to make the acquisition financially attractive, Warburg said earlier this month in a note.Infineon Chief Executive Officer Reinhard Ploss has argued that the companies are a “perfect fit” because their complementary products create an avenue for faster growth, benefiting employees and shareholders.S&P Global Ratings has put the company on review for a possible ratings downgrade, citing concerns over financing.To contact the reporter on this story: Stefan Nicola in Berlin at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Rebecca Penty at firstname.lastname@example.org, Iain Rogers, Andrew BlackmanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Infineon Technologies raised 1.545 billion euros ($1.74 billion) in an accelerated capital increase to help fund the cost of its planned acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor, it said late on Monday. Infineon said on June 3 it had agreed to buy Silicon Valley-based Cypress for $10 billion, paying a 46% premium to expand into next-generation autos and Internet technologies. "Infineon said it will equity finance about 30% of the ... deal.
Infineon Technologies said on Monday it was launching an accelerated capital increase to raise 1.5 billion euros ($1.68 billion) towards the cost of its planned acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor. The German chipmaker said in a statement that the offering of new shares, by way of a private placement to institutional investors, would increase its share capital by 10%. Separately, the bookrunner on the deal set price guidance for the placement at 13.66 euros.
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") rated NXP B.V.'s ("NXP") new senior unsecured notes ("New Notes") Baa3. NXP plans to use a portion of the net proceeds of the New Notes to refinance at maturity NXP Semiconductors Inc.'s $1.15 billion principal amount of outstanding 2019 Cash Convertible Senior Notes ("Convertible Notes") due December 1, 2019 and $600 million principal amount of outstanding 4.125% Senior Notes due 2020, with remaining proceeds used for general corporate purposes. Given the timing mismatch between the issuance of the New Notes and the refinancing of the Convertible Notes, debt will remain elevated until repayment of the Convertible Notes on December 1st.

Adding the California chipmaker to its portfolio is all about preparing for the growth of electric vehicles and other connected things.
Cypress’s portfolio of connectivity chips, which bring devices online, looks especially attractive, because the market goes far beyond just computers and phones.
Infineon Technologies on Monday announced an agreement to buy Cypress Semiconductor in a deal worth about $10 billion. The combination will create the No. 1 supplier of automotive chips.
Banks including Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan are set for a $95 million windfall, their most lucrative payday so far this year for a deal involving a European company, after Infineon's swoop on Cypress Semiconductor. The German company's $10 billion deal with Silicon Valley-based Cypress will boost Infineon's presence in next-generation automobiles and Internet technologies, creating an automotive leader with a 13% market share. A pick-up in multi-billion dollar deals in Europe, which began in May with Nestle's $10 billion sale of its skin health unit to buyout fund EQT, will mean a much-needed fee boost for some banks, who are typically paid on a success basis.
European shares recovered from early losses to end Monday higher as gains in healthcare stocks helped head off weakness in trade-sensitive sectors like technology after the latest twist in the U.S.-China trade war. China will reportedly investigate whether FedEx Corp damaged its clients' legal rights and interests after telecoms giant Huawei said parcels intended for it were diverted. "Tensions between the U.S. and China, and the U.S. and Mexico, are still high - the highest they have been recently, so today's move might turn out to be a relief rally," David Madden, market analyst at CMC Markets UK, wrote in a note.
agreed to buy Cypress Semiconductor Corp. Infineon, Europe's biggest semiconductor group, said it would pay $23.85 per share for Cypress, a major supplier of Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity chips for cars, home electronics and IoT devices, a 33.8% premium to its Friday closing price. Infineon will finance around a third of the deal with its existing equity, with the remainder coming from cash and debt.
