SK Hynix pulls out of bid for Japan's Elpida

Seoul (AFP) May 4, 2012


South Korea's SK Hynix, the world's second largest microchip maker, said Friday it had pulled out of its bid for ailing Japanese chipmaker Elpida Memory.

"We decided not to participate... it doesn't seem very advantageous strategically," said board chairman Choi Tae-Won.

SK Hynix said in March it had submitted preliminary interest in bidding for Elpida, which filed for bankruptcy protection in February in Japan's largest post-War corporate failure.

The South Korean company swung to a net loss of 271.2 billion won ($237.6 million) in the first quarter, as oversupply and weak demand for personal computers pressured memory chip prices.

The company said last week it aims to maintain a "minimum level" of cash holdings and would only consider investments that would not excessively burden its finances.

The Elpida bid came in March, a month after South Korea's largest mobile carrier SK Telecom completed the acquisition of a controlling 21.1 percent stake in Hynix for 3.34 trillion ($2.95 billion).

Electric charge disorder: A key to biological order?
Heidelberg, Germany (SPX) May 01, 2012
Theoretical physicist Ali Naji from the IPM in Tehran and the University of Cambridge, UK, and his colleagues have shown how small random patches of disordered, frozen electric charges can make a difference when they are scattered on surfaces that are overall neutral. These charges induce a twisting force that is strong enough to be felt as far as nanometers or even micrometers away. ... read more
