It’s one of FormFactor’s strategic priorities to expand our leadership in advanced packaging and MEMS applications, and we are excited to welcome Dr. Thomas Fries and the FRT team to the FormFactor family,” says Dr. Mike Slessor, CEO of FormFactor, in a press release. “It is an exciting time for FRT to join the FormFactor team,” adds Dr. Thomas Fries, CEO of FRT. “We look forward to leveraging FormFactor’s well established global infrastructure and customer relationships to further accelerate our planned growth, while continuing to execute our new product development roadmap.” In accordance with the terms of the transaction, FormFactor paid EUR 19.7 million in cash for the acquisition. Up to EUR 10.3 million of additional cash consideration may be payable subject to the performance of the acquired business in 2020.
