L&T Semiconductor Tech to acquire chip design firm SiliConch for Rs 183 crore

Mumbai: Indian conglomerate Larsen & Toubro on Tuesday said its wholly-owned subsidiary L&T Semiconductor Technologies is acquiring fabless semiconductor design company SiliConch Systems for Rs 183 crore.

The acquisition cost consists of an upfront amount of Rs 133 crore and a deferred amount of Rs 50 crore payable over four years.

In a stock exchange filing, the company said that L&T Semiconductor Technologies Limited (LTSCT) has entered into a share purchase agreement for acquisition of 100 per cent stake in SiliConch Systems Private Limited.

“The acquisition is expected to add IP, engineering skill-sets and design expertise to strengthen the Group’s presence in the fabless semiconductor business, and thus aligns with the overall growth strategy of LTSCT,” said the group company.
