AMD to Buy ATI

AMD to buy ATI for about $5.4 billion is an example of the flood of news reports this morning confirming rumors that Advanced Micro Devices is buying ATI Technologies. The About AMD & ATI Page on the ATI Website (thanks Mike Martinez) has a preliminary outline of where this will lead, and here's the announcement:

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Advanced Micro Devices Inc (NYSE:AMD - news), the No. 2 supplier of computer processors, said on Monday it would acquire graphics chip maker ATI Technologies Inc. for $5.4 billion in cash and stock to expand its product mix and grow market share as it battles Intel Corp. (Nasdaq:INTC - news).

Under terms of the deal, AMD will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of ATI (Nasdaq:ATYT - news) (Toronto:ATY.TO - news) for $4.2 billion in cash and 57 million shares of AMD common stock, based on the number of shares of ATI common stock outstanding on July 21.

AMD said it would pay $20.47 for each ATI share. That marks a 24 percent premium over ATI's closing stock price of $16.56 on Nasdaq on Friday. The stock added another 7 percent to $17.68 in after-hours trading amid media reports of the expected deal.

The consideration for each outstanding share of ATI comprises $16.40 in cash and 0.2229 shares of AMD common stock, the companies said.

AMD, the No. 2 supplier of computer processors, said it expects to finance the cash portion of the transaction with a combination of cash and new debt.

AMD has obtained a $2.5 billion term loan commitment from Morgan Stanley Senior Funding which, together with combined existing cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investment balances of about $3 billion, provides full funding for deal, it said.

ATI said it has agreed to a termination fee of $162 million. The deal is subject to the approval of ATI shareholders and regulators in the United States and Canada.

I really think this is bad for the industry. I wish the CPU & GPU dudes wouldnt mix. This is about as wrong as two boys fucking in a church.
