NXP-Freescale merger creates the eighth-largest chipmaker

The recent acquisition of Freescale Semiconductor by NXP Semiconductors would catapult the merged entity into the world’s eighth-largest chipmaker.
Prior to the merger, NXP ranked 15th in revenue and Freescale placed 18th. However, with combined revenues last year of approximately USD 10 billion, the new – merged – company would have surpass Broadcom and STMicroelectronics. Only Intel, Samsung Electronics, Qualcomm, SK Hynix, Micron Technology, Texas Instruments and Toshiba would have been bigger, according to IHS.
