Renesas and Dialog Semiconductor to Join Forces to Advance Global Leadership in Embedded Solutions

Renesas Electronics Corporation (“Renesas”, TSE: 6723), a supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, and Dialog Semiconductor Plc (“Dialog”, XETRA:DLG), a provider of power management, charging, AC/DC power conversion, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology, announced they have reached an agreement on the terms of a recommended all-cash acquisition by Renesas of the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Dialog (the “Acquisition”) for EUR 67.50 per share, representing a total equity value of approximately EUR 4.9 billion (approximately 615.7 billion yen).
  • Acquisition of Dialog’s low-power technologies and connectivity expertise centered around its mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) adds complementary product lines, strengthening Renesas’ global footprint across large, high-growth markets in the IoT,  industrial and automotive fields,
  • Expected to result in incremental revenue growth of approximately 200 million USD (non-GAAP operating income, approximately 21.0 billion yen) from cross selling and access to fast-growing industries alongside continued innovation of solution offerings; expects cost savings from operational efficiencies to result in a financial impact of approximately 125 million USD (non-GAAP operating income per year on a run rate basis, approximately 13.1 billion yen), 
  • EUR 67.50 per share in cash to be paid for all Dialog outstanding shares (on a fully diluted basis), equivalent to a total equity value of approximately EUR 4.9 billion,
  • Expected to be accretive to Renesas’ non-GAAP gross margin, and EBITDA after closing and to close by the end of 2021.

Dialog is an innovative provider of highly-integrated and power-efficient mixed-signal ICs for a broad array of customers within IoT, consumer electronics and high-growth segments of automotive and industrial end-markets. Centered around its low-power and mixed-signal expertise, Dialog brings a wide range of product offerings including battery and power management, power conversion, configurable mixed-signal (CMIC), LED drivers, custom mixed-signal ICs (ASICs), and automotive power management ICs (PMICs), wireless charging technology, and more. Dialog also offers broad and differentiated BLE, WiFi and audio system-on-chips (SoCs) that deliver advanced connectivity for a wide range of applications; from smart home/building automation, wearables, to connected medical. All these systems complement and expand Renesas’ leadership portfolio in delivering comprehensive solutions to improve performance and efficiency in high-computing electronic systems. 

“The transaction we announced today represents our next important step in catapulting Renesas’ growth plan to achieve substantial strategic and financial benefits, following our previous acquisitions,” said Hidetoshi Shibata, President and CEO of Renesas. “Dialog has a strong culture of innovation along with excellent customer relationships and serves fast growing areas including IoT, industrial and automotive. By bringing Dialog’s talented team and expertise into Renesas, together, we will accelerate innovation for customers and create sustainable value for our shareholders.”

“For several years, we have successfully executed on a diversification strategy that positions Dialog for high-growth,” said Dr. Jalal Bagherli, CEO of Dialog. “We have built a strong foundation of high-performance analog and power efficient mixed-signal expertise, extended our product portfolio and applied our technologies into markets including 5G, wearables, automotive, smart home, connected medical and industrial IoT. This compelling platform – combined with Renesas’ leading embedded compute, analog and power portfolio – creates even greater growth opportunities in today’s increasingly connected world. The Dialog team is excited to join forces with Renesas. The combined company will be in an even stronger position to provide innovative products for these markets, building on Renesas’ extensive sales, distribution and customer support capabilities.”
