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. :)
