Keep us posted Peter! One comparison to look at would be the acquisition of Teridian by Maxim for $315M more than two years ago. I seriously doubt if the numbers are anywhere that for Energy Micro.
It may be that Energy Micro was looking to do another VC round and in the looking unearthed the possibility of getting bought out, which no doubt the VCs looked hard at...but one wonders how big a flip it was for the VCs, for Geir, Oyvind and the team?
