236 million dollars! Gexin Sells Singapore Fab 3E Factory to World Advanced
Data:2019-02-28 , 
On January 31, World Advanced Wafer OEM announced at its earnings meeting that it would purchase Fab 3E plant with grid core in Singapore. After the purchase, World Advanced will increase the production capacity of 400,000 8-inch wafers per year.

World Advanced said that the acquisition includes plant, plant facilities, machinery and equipment, and the intellectual property rights and business of MEMS. The plant currently has a monthly production capacity of about 35,000 8-inch wafers with a transaction value of US$236 million. The delivery date is expected to be 31 December this year.

It is reported that the two sides have reached a consensus on the handover between employees and customers of Fab 3E wafer factory. As an important asset, employees should be prioritized and properly arranged to jointly ensure that customers produced by wafer factory will not be affected by this transaction.

Gexin said that the sale of Fab 3E wafer factory will be able to simplify the company's manufacturing, focus on providing customers with truly valuable technology, but also to clarify the company's strategy, reduce the operating costs of the lattice core.
