高度說服力的策略和財務理由

  • 拓展全球業務的業界領導者:此次合併強化了ADI在類比半導體市場的領導地位,在形式上,預期收入將達到82億美元[1],自由現金流將達到27億美元[1]。Maxim在汽車和資料中心市場的實力與ADI橫跨廣泛工業、通訊和數位醫療市場的實力相輔相成,必將推動關鍵長期成長趨勢。在電源管理方面,Maxim聚焦應用之產品類型與ADI因應廣泛市場的產品類別形成互補。
  • 豐富的專業領域知識和技術能力業界頂尖技術的整合,將進一步強化ADI的專業領域知識和工程技術能力,橫跨從直流至100 Ghz、從毫微瓦至千瓦、從感測器至雲端的範圍,覆蓋5萬多種產品。合併後公司可提供更完整的解決方案,服務超過12萬5千家客戶,掌握總額達600億美元目標市場[3]的機會。
  • 創新主導增長的共同理念:雙方擁有相近的企業文化,即重視人才、創新和卓越工程,工程師總共超過10,000名,年度研發投資近15億美元[1]。合併後公司將繼續吸引各領域之頂級工程人才。
  • 收益成長和成本節約:由於更低的營運支出和銷貨成本,預計在交易結束後18個月內,調整後每股收益會逐步提升,至第二年年底,成本協同效益達到2.75億美元。交易結束後第三年年底,製造流程優化有望帶來更多成本協同效益。
  • 強大的財務實力和現金流能力:ADI希望合併後公司能有更強勁的資產負債表表現,預估淨槓桿率接近1.2x[4]。此次交易也可望在結束時提升自由現金流,為股東帶來更多收益。
