Western Digital Acquires SanDisk in $19 Billion Deal

Recommended Posts

WD will acquire SanDisk for around $19 Billion in a combination of cash and stock. At the moment estimates have WD paying $85.10 per share in cash and 0.0176 shares of Western Digital common stock per share of SanDisk common stock, that is assuming the investment by Unisplendour Corporation Limited closes prior to acquisition. If the investment hasn’t closed then WD will pay $67.50 in cash and 0.2387 shares of Western Digital common stock per share of SanDisk common stock. Both companies’ boards of directors have approved the transaction.

WD will be a great fit for SanDisk. And with China getting out of the way, the biggest challenge for WD will be organizational and cultural.

Been a busy few weeks for announcements from WD. First the Unisplendour investment, then MOFCOM lifting the hold separate requirement, and now buying SanDisk. I do wonder if the former led to the easing of the latter, though.

The industry is going through a period of churn and shrinkage. Definitely an anxious time for those in the field.
