Infineon board favours DRAM unit IPO - report

Not to be sold to Nanya, Micron after all?

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Another day, another way for Infineon to rid itself of its loss-making DRAM division. After yesterday's claim that the German company is to sell the unit to Micron and Nanya, today we hear the firm would prefer to float the business.

According to the Financial Times, Infineon's supervisory board is preparing to vote in favour of separating out the DRAM division in preparation for spinning it off entirely through an IPO. The report claimed such a course has the support of most members of Infineon's executive board.

It's suggested, however, that other options have not be totally rejected, so yesterday's claim, made by US investment bank Needham and Co., that the division will be sundered and the bits sold to Micron and Nanya - with whom Infineon already has a partnership - could still prove accurate.

Infineon's supervisory board is due to meet tomorrow, the FT said. ®
