Published: November 15, 2017; 08:00 · (FriedlNews)

ams has announced today that it has divested its LED backlight technology and product portfolio to Dialog Semiconductor through an asset transaction.

As part of the transaction, Dialog has also acquired specific ams intellectual
property rights. The acquired LED backlight integrated circuits (IC) portfolio
is already in volume production with Asia Pacific TV manufacturers. The
transaction is now closed, with the commercial terms of the deal undisclosed.
The related revenues are not material to ams' business.

Alexander Everke, CEO of ams, commented on the announcement, "We continue to
implement our clearly defined strategy concentrating on the four sensing focus
areas of optical, imaging, environmental, and audio sensing. This includes
actively managing our technology and business portfolio on an ongoing basis."
