The state-owned memory chipmaker was charged in November along with Taiwanese partner United Microelectronics Corp. of conspiring to steal intellectual property from Micron Technology Inc. Both companies have since denied the allegations, and on Friday Jinhua challenged U.S. authorities to produce proof of the supposed transgressions. Jinhua was wrapping up construction of a $6 billion plant on China’s southeastern coast when the Trump administration barred American suppliers from selling products or providing technical support to the Chinese company last October.
Chinese chipmaker Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd said on Thursday it has pleaded not guilty to U.S. charges alleging that it stole trade secrets, in a case that has fanned tensions in the intensifying technology race between the two countries. The U.S. Justice Department in November announced an indictment against state-owned Fujian Jinhua and Taiwan-based United Microelectronics Corp (UMC), alleging they stole intellectual property from U.S.-based Micron Technology Inc. Fujian Jinhua said in a statement posted on its official microblog account that it would work towards getting itself removed from the U.S. export control entity list and had hired lobbyists and legal advisors to help with its case.
As the Trump administration and China attempt to end their trade war, the U.S. is pushing forward on a key front of the conflict: a criminal prosecution of alleged trade-secret theft that has helped to hobble China’s aspirations of mass producing memory chips. State-owned Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co. and its Taiwan-based partner United Microelectronics Corp. pleaded not guilty Wednesday in San Francisco federal court. The companies’ indictment was the first under the Justice Department’s “China Initiative,” announced in November to prioritize trade-theft cases and litigate them as quickly as possible.
Hedge funds run by legendary names like Nelson Peltz and David Tepper make billions of dollars a year for themselves and their super-rich accredited investors (you’ve got to have a minimum of $1 million liquid to invest in a hedge fund) by spending enormous resources on analyzing and uncovering data about small-cap stocks that the […]
Less than a month ago, Jinhua was full-speed ahead on an enormous undertaking financed by the local government that blanketed its corner of the city with bristling power plants, hulking workers’ dormitories and modern research labs. It was within months of a deadline to kick off full-scale production of some 60,000 wafers a month, a key step to giving China a competitive producer of memory chips used in smartphones. Now, uncertainty shrouds a company President Xi Jinping’s touted as one of three future domestic champions of chipmaking.
The U.S. decision to cut off a Chinese state-backed chipmaker from U.S. suppliers amid allegations the firm stole intellectual property breaks World Trade Organization rules and aims to protect a U.S. monopoly, China told a WTO meeting on Tuesday. Last month the U.S. Commerce Department put Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd on a list of entities that cannot buy components, software and technology goods from U.S. firms. U.S. semiconductor company Micron Technology Inc, a maker of memory chips with factories in Virginia and Utah, has accused Jinhua and Taiwanese partner United Microelectronics Corp of stealing its chip designs in a lawsuit in California.
Washington's decision to cut off U.S. supplies to a Chinese chip-maker spotlights mounting tensions over China's drive to be a global player in computer chips and the ways in which Taiwan companies are helping it get there. Shut out of major global semiconductor deals in recent years, China has been quietly strengthening cooperation with Taiwan chip firms by encouraging the transfer of chip-making expertise into the mainland. Taiwan chip giant United Microelectronics Corp (UMC) last week halted research and development activities with its Chinese state-backed partner Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd, following the U.S. move.
Since June 2018, Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) has done the unthinkable after reporting incredibly strong revenue: Micron stock topped off at over $60 but it has since bottomed out at $35. It took a stock market rally for a few consecutive days to get the stock back to $40. Stock price movement aside, markets did have it right when it priced in lower memory and flash NAND prices.
HONG KONG/BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese state-backed semiconductor maker Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd billed itself as a national leader in the tech industry. It planned to drive a shift towards locally made chips and end a heavy reliance on imports, especially from the United States. "The era of Chinese chips has arrived," it said in a recent promotional online pamphlet to attract chip industry talent.
The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday unveiled an indictment against two companies based in China and Taiwan and three individuals, saying they conspired to steal trade secrets from U.S. semiconductor company Micron Technology Inc relating to its research and development of memory storage devices. The charges against Taiwan-based United Microelectronics Corp, China state-owned Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd and three individuals who once worked for a unit of Micron mark the fourth case brought by the Justice Department since September as part of a broader crackdown against alleged Chinese espionage on U.S. companies.
Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co. and Taiwan’s United Microelectronics Corp. were indicted in California along with three individuals, the Justice Department said Thursday. The U.S. also sued to stop the companies from exporting to America any products that were created using the trade secrets.
As a critical partner in the nexus between U.S. clients and the Chinese supply chain, the last thing Taiwan needs right now is to become known as a place that can’t be trusted. Weak enforcement is endemic in Taiwan, from insider trading rules to know-your-customer requirements, and I suspect that includes many more cases of intellectual property theft. According to the U.S. Justice Department, UMC executives were the front for a Chinese plan to steal semiconductor secrets from Boise, Idaho-based Micron Technology Inc. Even before jumping into bed with state-owned Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co., UMC had a history of questionable deals in China.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The United States has charged a government-controlled company in China with stealing trade secrets from an American semiconductor company, the Justice Department said Thursday as it outlined an initiative focused on what officials said was the growing threat of Chinese economic espionage.
Taiwan chipmaker United Microelectronics Corp said it will temporarily halt research and development activities with its Chinese partner Fujian Jinhua, days after the United States cut off the state-backed firm from U.S. suppliers. U.S. President Donald Trump's administration took action on Monday to cut off Fujian Jinhua from U.S. suppliers amid allegations the firm stole intellectual property from U.S. semiconductor company Micron Technology Inc. The action against Fujian Jinhua could ignite new tensions between Beijing and Washington since the company is part of the "Made in China 2025" programme to develop new high-technology industries.
For a company responsible for a massive amount of memory and storage chips used in smartphones and servers across the internet, Micron Technology Inc.'s (MU) $56 billion market cap seems ultra low compared to industry peers. Warning! GuruFocus has detected 1 Warning Sign with MU. More importantly, Micron is still set to earn more than $20 billion over the next two years.
A Chinese court has barred Micron Technology (MU) from selling some of its products in China for the time being, according to a July 4 Wall Street Journal report. This decision comes as the trade war is intensifying between the United States and China. China and the United States are poised to impose new tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of each other’s products.
