  • Dia­log Semi­con­duc­tor acqui­res the Ger­man com­pany Crea­tive Chips
  • The tran­sac­tion is part of a new ini­tia­tive by Dia­log to enter the Indu­s­trial Inter­net of Things (IIoT) semi­con­duc­tor mar­ket
  • Ebner Stolz pro­vi­des buy-side Finan­cial and Tax Due Dili­gence sup­port as well as SPA advice

Stutt­gart, 16th October 2019 – The audi­ting and con­sul­ting firm Ebner Stolz advi­sed Dia­log Semi­con­duc­tor plc (Dia­log) on its acqui­si­tion of Crea­tive Chips GmbH by pro­vi­ding Finan­cial and Tax Due Dili­gence ser­vices.

Dia­log Semi­con­duc­tor plc, a com­pany lis­ted on the Frank­furt Stock Exchange, acqui­red 100% of the sha­res in Crea­tive Chips GmbH. Dia­log is a lea­ding pro­vi­der of power mana­ge­ment, char­ging, AC/DC power con­ver­sion, Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth low energy tech­no­logy.

Crea­tive Chips is a Ger­man fab­less semi­con­duc­tor com­pany with a gro­wing Inte­g­ra­ted Cir­cuits (IC) busi­ness sup­p­lying a broad port­fo­lio of indu­s­trial Ether­net and other mixed-sig­nal pro­ducts to top-tier, blue-chip manu­fac­tu­rers of indu­s­trial and buil­ding auto­ma­tion sys­tems. Crea­tive Chips is head­quar­te­red in Bin­gen close to Frank­furt am Main with an addi­tio­nal design centre in Dres­den.

The tran­sac­tion allows Dia­log to estab­lish its­elf as a pro­ven sup­p­lier that is well-posi­tio­ned to cap­ture the sig­ni­fi­cant growth poten­tial of the Indu­s­trial Inter­net of Things (IIoT) semi­con­duc­tor mar­ket. It also pro­vi­des Dia­log with a rich port­fo­lio of core IC pro­ducts.
