Western Digital To Aquire SanDisk For $19 Billion

Western Digital just bought a bunch of memory cards. The storage giant just announced that it has agreed to buy SanDisk Corp for about $19 billion. This comes after speculation that SanDisk was shopping for a buyer.

The deal values SanDisk at $86.50 a share, which is a 15% premium on the previous day’s closing price, giving the company a value of $15.4 billion. SanDisk is currently up 4.78% in pre-market trading.

This deal brings together two of the largest storage companies. In many ways, SanDisk, with its deep investment in flash memory chips represents a future without the spinning disk hard drives of Western Digital. Yet despite early explosive growth, SanDisk as of late reported results that have lagged behind expectations. Likewise, Western Digital has watched its core business slip away as the industry moves towards flash memory.

SanDisk CEO Sanjay Mehrotra is expected to join the Western Digital board upon the closing of the deal. Western Digital CEO Steve Milligan will continue in that role.

幾時收購transcend, Plextor. 這2間好野!


而家話連 Intel 都要自己玩 NAND, ( not IMFT )......


ssd 會更加平、更加普及,但短時間唔會取代 hdd。

memory card、usb thumb drive、ssd 市場快速擴大,hdd 市場收縮緊,收購係明智。


家用娛樂用 nand flash 多過用 hdd,tvbox、低功耗 pc用 ssd。手機,平板、ip cam、車錄影cam、相機都係用 sd card。
