Hynix creditors don't like Micron terms

Deal breaker?

Hynix creditors, mostly banks, want Micron to pay $7 billion for the Korean DRAM vendor. But Micron may offer only $5 billion for the company, Hynix says.

The creditors, which have the power to naysay the deal, want to recoup $4.6 billion, just under two-thirds of the debt that Hynix carries.

So how do we know this? It's all very convoluted: Bloomsberg is citing the Korean Daily News which in turn is citing a report on an unnamed Korean web site.

According to this report, Micron will offer shares to buy Hynix and will set up a separate company called Micron Korea. Micron says the report is speculative, as no offer has been made yet. But it must be pretty close to the mark - as it prompted Hynix to publicly confirm takeover valuations placed on the company by its creditors and by Micron. ®
