In DRAM, Hynix has 23 nm and Samsung has 21 nm. Elpida went belly up before really starting 25 nm. Whoever takes over Elpida really does not gain an advantage over the South Korean DRAM competitors, in fact, only increases their own burden to support while attempting to catch up.

Accepting bids from their competitors for the opportunity to "invest" doesn't seem appropriate in this case, unless they just want to take their technology then shut down their fabs. I don't see any other scenario for a possible profit (or loss reduction) for the "investors".
