They bought it with 36$/share for 17.6b $. Now it is about 18$/share, or a value of about 8.9b$. Usually semiconductor companies get about 5-7 times EBITDA, so this new offer is more realistic, even though a little bit bigger than the usual 7. The last one with 22$/share was 9 times EBITDA… I think the change in price was predictable in some sense…

"it was bought for $17.6 billion in 2006 by a consortium of private equity firms led by the Blackstone Group." I still cant understand, how the buyers justified those numbers. :)

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
