Hmmmm, I can't remember the last time I met anyone from National's sales force.

What's the logic behind this? Most large semi acquisitions do not work as even TI's CEO admits. What am I missing here? Kris

TI purchased Burr-Brown for 7.6 Billion and ruined it. Now it's National Semi's turn.

TI makes components but it sells "block diagrams", that is, superior and complete solutions S-factor (S for solutions) revenue and profit benefit – a system’s strategic component pulls in an entire solution revenue and generates a superior profit -- TI has to provide all solution’s elements (directly or indirectly via partners) -- Strategically critical solution technologies are acquired or partnered -- Power management (standard power products - a 2-year old new HPA group) was $1.77B in FY2010 - HPA group (standard signal chain products) was $1.79B National is the second ranked power management IC vendor (after TI); nearly one-half of its total $$1.4B revenues comes from power management. National is also well positioned to become the industry's top IC vendor in terms of performance and valuation -- IF it can reduce its large GSA expenses - something, like changing a DNA, is very difficult to do. National was founded in 1959; its revenues declined 50% from $2.7B in 1997 to $1.4B in 2010. For decades the company was wandering in a digital desert pursuing "PC on chip" and other distractions; only in 2005 did National reintroduce a word "analog" in its description. BTW - it is also fairly obvious who will likely acquire whom next... http://www.petrovgroup.com/pdfs/National%20article%20-%20published%20July%205-10.pdf

Why exactly is this a win-win?

I think this is win-win for both TI and NSC. Lets hope this deal will pass the regulatory approval soon. So we have TI replacing Toshiba as the 3rd biggest company in terms of marketshare.
