China Tsinghua Unigroup to invest 47 billion to build chip empire

first_imgChina’s Tsinghua Unigroup Ltd plans to invest 300 billion Yuan ($47 billion) over the next five years in a bid to become the world’s third-biggest chip maker, the chairman of the state-backed technology conglomerate said on Monday, 16 November.Furthermore, Chairman Zhao Weiguo said that the company controlled by Tsinghua University, which counts President Xi Jinping among its alumni, was in talks with an US-based company involved in the chip industry.A deal could be finalised as early as the end of this month, Zhao said. He declined to give more details, but said that buying a majority stake was unlikely as it was too “sensitive” for the US government.”If you can’t be the top-three giant, it will be very hard to develop your business in the chip industry,” Zhao said, citing reports that China imported more chips than crude oil every year.”The next five years is key… There is an enormous market out there,” he added.Currently, Qualcomm Inc holds the third position in the global chip rankings, behind Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and market leader Intel Corp, which has a market capitalisation of $151.5 billion.The sheer size of Tsinghua Unigroup’s planned investments is almost equal to Intel’s $50 billion chip revenue last year and could disrupt the NAND chip industry. The top five chip makers control more than 90% of the global NAND chip market after years of boom-and-bust squeezed out smaller players.Tsinghua Unigroup’s investment drive comes after a two-year deal-making campaign to bolster China’s fledgling chip industry, seen as a strategic priority for the Chinese government.Beijing is keen to end China’s reliance on foreign semiconductors as it seeks to build a modern, digitised armed forces capable of matching other advanced militaries.It has also attached strategic importance to the development of domestic semiconductor, server and networking equipment industries amid fears of foreign cyber spying.Tsinghua Unigroup has spent more than $9.4 billion making acquisitions and investments at home and abroad over the past two years, including the purchase of stakes in US data Storage Company Western Digital Corp and Taiwan’s Powertech Technology Inc.In August, it made an informal $23 billion takeover offer for US giant Micron Technology Inc that was rejected out-of-hand by the Idaho-based chip-maker amid concerns a deal might endanger national security.Tsinghua’s failed bid to buy Micron suggests it is serious about expanding in NAND chips, used for storing music, pictures and other data on mobile devices.The global chip market was worth $355 billion last year, according to research firm IHS Technology.NO PLANS FOR DRAMZhao said that Tsinghua Unigroup, which had a revenue of about 12.3 billion Yuan last year, was also in talks about cooperating with a “world-class memory chip giant” to build a new chip factory in China. This move could help his company acquire intellectual property needed to manufacture memory chips.The 90-billion-Yuan factory would help meet fast-growing demand of NAND memory chips.”We don’t have plans for DRAM at the moment,” Zhao said, referring to dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips that are used mostly in personal computers.”We need to take one step at a time,” he stressed.The company was also suspending plans to invest in Taiwanese tech firms due to regulatory hurdles, after agreeing to take a stake in Powertech Technology Inc and expressing interest in more cross-strait deals.Industry analysts had expected Tsinghua Unigroup to make further investment in Taiwan, sparking fears on the island that its chip sector may fall prey to China’s state-backed drive to become a world-class player.”The regulations do not allow it, so what’s the point of talking (to Taiwanese firms)?” Zhao said, adding that Tsinghua Unigroup was focused on investing in the United States.last_img read more

Government order on GM seeds royalty fee kept in abeyance Report

first_imgA recent government order with potential to limit royalty fee charged on all new and advanced genetically modified (GM) seed technologies has been put on hold, reported Business Standard. The May 18 order was held back to have a wider public debate.Royalty or the trait fee charged on seeds by GM companies ( or the licensors) on domestic firms (the licensees) was capped to 10 percent of the maximum sale price in the recent order. An earlier order had restricted selling the seeds beyond Rs. 800 for every 450 grams.In further tightening of GM seed royalties, the 10 percent fee will be unchanged for the first five years from the date of its commercialisation and from the sixth year will be lowered by 10 percent annually.The Business Standard report noted that the most litigious of the clauses was that all existing agreements had to follow the new rules within 30 days, failing which the agreements would be considered void. Also disputable was the mandatory granting of licence to licensees within 30 days of request by anyone fulfilling the minimum eligibility criteria.India has so far allowed usage of GM technology only in cotton seeds. Mahyco Monsanto Biotech (MMBL), a joint venture of U.S.-based Monsanto and India’s Mahyco, is the sole provider of GM cotton seeds in the country, reported Reuters. The government order has indirectly, albeit effectively, targeted Monsanto.MMBL’s India BusinessMMBL, the original licensee, has sublicensed the cotton seed technology to more than 50 domestic companies. These companies allege that MMBL collects Rs. 530 crore annually as royalty fee for its Bt technologies. Since 2002, its total collection amounted to Rs.7,000 crore. India’s GM seed market as a whole is around Rs. 3,500 crore per year, said Business Standard.The daily added that the first of the cotton seed technology from Monsanto’s stable was the Bollgard-1 technology that went off-patent in 2006. Then the company launched its BG-2 tech seeds, which has a 95 percent market share of India’s Bt cotton seeds. Its newer variant, BG-3 tech, is still pending commercial approval.last_img read more

Fire and collapse in Mumbai shop kills 12

first_imgFire tore through a sweet shop in the Indian city of Mumbai before dawn Monday, sparking a building collapse which killed 12 sleeping workers, authorities said.Four others were injured but some saved their lives by scrambling out seconds before the collapse.Fire crews and other rescuers saved many trapped workers but 12 died of their injuries, said Tanaji Kamble, spokesperson for Mumbai’s disaster management cell.”The casualties could have been much higher but luckily some workers managed to escape before the building collapsed,” Kamble added.Authorities are looking into the cause of the blaze in the store in the suburbs of India’s financial capital.Building disasters are common in Mumbai, especially during the monsoon season from late June to September. Millions live in cramped dilapidated properties because of high rental prices and activists say housing owners and builders often cut corners to save costs.In August seven people died after a building collapsed in Mumbai following days of heavy rain. In July 17 people died when a four-storey building gave way in the northern suburb of Ghatkopar.In 2013 60 people were killed when a residential block came crashing down in one of Mumbai’s worst housing disasters.last_img read more
