新华社东京9月14日电日本软银集团14日宣布,将把所持英国芯片设计公司Arm股份全部出售给美国半导体制造商英伟达公司,此举将使软银集团净赚400亿美元,以弥补投资损失。


软银表示,连同沙特阿拉伯支持的投资基金,它将通过现金和股票两种方式获得英伟达8.1%的股份。


软银表示,该交易应在2022年3月获得监管机构批准后完成。


根据一份联合声明,英伟达将向软银支付120亿美元现金和215亿美元普通股。


当英伟达达到双方同意的财务目标时,软银将获得另外50亿美元的现金或股票期权。声明还称,英伟达将向Arm员工提供15亿美元的股权。


软银董事长兼首席执行官孙正义在声明中表示:“与一家技术创新领域的世界领军企业合作,为Arm创造了令人兴奋的新机遇。”


他称英伟达是Arm有限公司的“完美合作伙伴”。


软银一直试图筹集资金来改善其摇摇欲坠的金融局势公布创纪录的净亏损9615.8亿日元(90.6亿美元)在2019财年到3月,因其视觉基金的投资业绩不佳的科技创业公司如WeWork,共享工作空间的美国供应商。


在其他筹集资金的举措中,这家跨国集团表示将出售价值4.5万亿日元(424.4亿美元)的资产。


软银此前说,其中包括它在T-Mobile U.S. Inc.的持股。

 

TOKYO, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- SoftBank Group Corp. announced on Monday that it would sell its entire stake in British chip designer Arm Ltd. to U.S. semiconductor maker Nvidia Corp. in a move that could net the conglomerate up to 40 billion U.S. dollars to help offset investment losses.

SoftBank said that along with its Saudi Arabia-backed investment fund it would gain a stake in Nvidia through both cash and stocks of up to 8.1 percent.

The sale should be completed after approval by regulators by March 2022, SoftBank said.

According to a joint statement, SoftBank would be paid 12 billion U.S. dollars in cash and 21.5 billion U.S. dollars in common stock by Nvidia.

Softbank could receive an additional 5 billion U.S. dollars in cash or stock options when the British chip designer hits certain financial targets agreed to by the parties, with the statement adding that Nvidia would extend 1.5 billion U.S. dollars in equity to Arm employees.

"Joining forces with a world leader in technology innovation creates new and exciting opportunities for Arm," said SoftBank Chairman and CEO Masayoshi Son in the statement.

He refereed to Nvidia as being the "the perfect partner" for Arm Ltd.

SoftBank has been trying to raise funds to improve its battered financial situation after reporting a record net loss of 961.58 billion yen (9.06 billion U.S. dollars) in fiscal 2019 through March, owing to its Vision Fund's investments in poorly performing tech startups such as WeWork, a U.S. provider of shared work spaces.

In other moves to raise funds, the multinational conglomerate has said it would offload 4.5 trillion yen (42.44 billion U.S. dollars) worth of assets.

Some of these include its stake in T-Mobile U.S. Inc., SoftBank previously said.
