According to Nikkei, a Japanese news agency, Apple has proposed $479 million for grabbing the 55 percent investment of Renesas SP Drivers-a group of companies consisted of Renesas, Sharp, and a Taiwan based firm called Powerchip.
According to Apple Insider, if the deal is really done, Sharp is very likely to sell its 25 percent of share to the Cupertino company. However, all the employees of Renesas SP Drivers are expected to remain in the company after the acquirement.
Renesas SP Drivers is known as the main manufacturer for constructing the LCD chips of the iPhone, which is a very important component for increasing the quality of the display. It might be Apple’s main reason for purchasing the Japanese chip manufacturer.
