The acquisition will bring – in-house – a highly experienced engineering team while also enabling cost efficiencies, which together will improve the enterprise value of the Kioxia. The acquisition will also enhance the company's technology development capabilities, as well as deliver synergies across the design, operation and production of its manufacturing plants.
