Dialog Semiconductor in merger talk to broaden its product lines


Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Dialog Semiconductor Plc is in discussions with touch-pad technology maker Synaptics Inc. about a potential deal with the U.S. company, according to people familiar with the matter.

Exploratory talks about a combination are ongoing and may not lead to an agreement, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the details arenít public. Dialog has a market value of about 1.15 billion euros ($1.4 billion) while Synaptics is valued at $1.6 billion.

Synaptics shares rose as much as 15 percent to $49.13 Friday. Dialogís German-traded shares closed down 4 percent at 15.07 euros apiece.

Representatives for Dialog and San Jose, California-based Synaptics declined to comment.

Dialog is facing a challenging year for sales after its biggest customer, Apple Inc., cut orders for the companyís power-management chips used in the iPhone. The Reading, U.K.-based company warned that revenue will fall 5 percent in 2018 because of the smartphone giantís move.

Synaptics would give Dialog an entryway into additional products like smartphone sensors, touch screens and touch pads that are sold to companies like Apple and Samsung Electronics Co., according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
