TSMC spins out solar, LED units
April 28, 2011 // Mark LaPedus
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (TSMC) plans to transfer its solar and solid-state lighting businesses into two new subsidiaries.
TSMC will transfer its previously-announced solar business at value not exceeding NT$12.5 billion ($432.8 million) to serve as initial paid-in capital for TSMC Solar Ltd.
It will transfer its LED-based solid-state lighting business at a value not exceeding NT$2.8 billion ($96.9 million) to serve as initial paid-in capital for TSMC Solid State Lighting Ltd.
''The establishment of these two subsidiaries is aimed at motivating entrepreneurship and facilitating business specialization to strengthen overall competitiveness and operational efficiency,'' according to TSMC.
TSMC took separate steps into the solar and LED fronts in 2009. TSMC will sell these products under its own brand name-which is a big departure from its foundry strategy.
