Transaction expands ams’ value chain in optical sensor solutions for mobile 3D sensing and imaging, consumer augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) and automotive applications.

Premstaetten, Austria (16 March 2017) – ams (SIX: AMS), a leading worldwide supplier of high performance sensor and analog solutions, has signed an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares in Princeton Optronics, Inc., a leading provider of Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs), in an all-cash transaction.

 

Princeton Optronics develops and supplies high performance VCSELs which offer specific differentiation for mobile, consumer, automotive, and industrial applications. In the mobile and consumer markets, Princeton Optronics realizes benchmark power efficiency and accurate control of beam divergence to create application benefits. In automotive and industrial, Princeton Optronics’ technology enables high temperature operation and delivers high power pulsed lasers and laser arrays which support future automotive and industrial applications. The use of VCSELs is expected to gain momentum in optical sensor solutions for the Human Machine Interface (HMI). Broader adoption of 3D sensing in mobile applications could accelerate market growth for VCSEL light sources in the coming years.

 

Princeton Optronics operates an outsourced high volume supply chain with partners in Taiwan, the U.S., and the United Kingdom. Headquartered in Princeton, NJ (USA) with a total of 37 employees, Princeton Optronics has an annual revenue run-rate of around USD 10 million and is profitable. The transaction includes an upfront consideration of USD 53.3 million in cash and a substantial cash earn-out consideration related to realized 2017 and 2018 revenues, with a potential maximum earn-out value of USD 75 million. The transaction is expected to close within six months and is subject to certain approvals and the occurrence of certain conditions defined in the agreements with the sellers.

Alexander Everke, CEO of ams, commented on the transaction, “Adding the illumination source expands ams’ optical sensor solutions offering, with the light path optics covered by Heptagon and the light sensor including filters by ams. Leveraging this portfolio ams can now design and manufacture the most complete and differentiated optical solutions for future growth areas like mobile 3D sensing and imaging or automotive autonomous driving. Princeton Optronics is a strategic partner to ams/Heptagon for optical sensing products already so we see a range of potential future synergies from this exciting combination.”

    The main problem for Israel is that its post-1967 settlements on the West Bank Palestinian lands are war crimes. The World Court has ruled that any country gaining land through military action may not remove the inhabitants and settle citizens of the victorious power on the conquered territories. This is ethnic cleansing whether the previous inhabitants are killed or not. The World Court can issue arrest warrants for Israeli officials who allow settlements in the West Bank, Gaza, or the Golan Heights, based on the borders prior to the 1967 war. Israel can be required to remove its citizens from Palestinian lands or face arrest warrants and/or international economic sanctions. Countries that willfully violate those sanctions, such as the US, can have sanctions imposed on them as well.

    The real story here, I think, is not about banks at all; rather, it’s about the government, which is desperately trying to extricate itself from its current position as the ultimate source of just about all mortgage finance. In the absence of a formal plan of how to do this, it’s trying a market-based approach: make mortgages expensive, and maybe the banks will take the hint and start offering private-label mortgages at lower, more competitive rates. As Timiraos says, part of the reason mortgage rates are so high is the fees that Fannie and Freddie are slapping on to every loan they buy from lenders.
