Micron Technology apporta miglioramenti all’accordo di Joint Venture Inotera Memories

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 19 gennaio 2013

Boise, Idaho, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: MU) ha oggi annunciato di aver stipulato accordi con Nanya Technology Corporation per migliorare il loro rapporto nella joint venture riguardante Inotera Memories Inc., un importante produttore taiwanese di memorie DRAM, e apportare perfezionamenti al loro accordo di sviluppo congiunto. I nuovi accordi hanno effetto immediato. Le modifiche includono un nuovo accordo di fornitura tra Micron e Inotera in base al quale Micron si preparerà all’acquisto di tutta la produzione manifatturiera di Inotera, con Micron che acquisterà sostanziale tutta la produzione a partire dai primi mesi del 2013. In base agli accordi precedenti, Nanya e Micron erano generalmente obbligate ad acquistare metà della produzione di Inotera. Anche i termini commerciali del nuovo accordo di fornitura tra Micron e Inotera sono cambiati. Secondo il nuovo accordo, il prezzo di acquisto di Micron per la produzione di Inotera è basato sul prezzo di mercato, anziché in relazione alla condivisione del margine, come era previsto dal precedente accordo. Inoltre Nanya non parteciperà più al programma di sviluppo tecnologico delle DRAM in collaborazione con Micron, che è stato avviato quando Micron e Nanya avevano creato la joint venture di Inotera nel 2008. Micron, inoltre, fornirà a Nanya una licenza tecnologica soggetta a royalty.
Micron e Nanya collettivamente continueranno a detenere la maggioranza delle azioni di Inotera, tenendo conto che Nanya, o le sue società affiliate, acquisiranno probabilmente nel prossimo anno una partecipazione di capitale maggiore. Micron, Nanya e i loro affiliati attualmente sono rispettivamente in possesso di circa il 40 per cento e il 29 per cento delle azioni in circolazione di Inotera.Gli accordi oggi annunciati non cambiano le stime del secondo trimestre fiscale 2013 precedentemente comunicate riguardanti la crescita della produzione di bit DRAM, della ricerca e sviluppo e del prezzo di vendita medio trimestrale stimato (includendo il mix di prodotti previsti per il trimestre) e il costo per bit.

Micron Technology Amends Inotera Memories Joint Venture With Nanya Technology Corporation

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 18 gennaio 2013

Boise, Idaho, Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:MU) today announced that it has entered into agreements with Nanya Technology Corporation to amend their joint venture relationship involving Inotera Memories, Inc., a leading Taiwanese DRAM memory manufacturer, and to amend their joint development arrangement. The new agreements are effective immediately.The amendments include a new supply agreement between Micron and Inotera pursuant to which Micron is transitioning to purchase all of Inotera’s manufacturing output, with Micron purchasing substantially all of such output beginning in early 2013. Under the prior agreements, Nanya and Micron were each generally obligated to purchase half of Inotera’s output. Commercial terms of the new supply agreement between Micron and Inotera have also changed. Under the new arrangement, Micron’s purchase price for Inotera output is market based as opposed to the former margin sharing arrangement.Additionally, Nanya will no longer participate in the DRAM technology joint development program with Micron, which was initiated when Micron and Nanya entered into the Inotera joint venture in 2008. Micron will also provide Nanya with a royalty-bearing technology license.Micron and Nanya collectively will continue to hold a majority of Inotera’s shares, with Nanya or its affiliated companies likely acquiring greater equity ownership over the next year. Micron and Nanya and their affiliates currently own approximately 40 percent and 29 percent, respectively, of Inotera’s outstanding shares.The agreements announced today do not change Micron’s previously announced fiscal second quarter 2013 estimates for DRAM production bit growth, research and development, estimated quarter to date average selling price (including forecasted product mix for the quarter) and cost per bit.

Gerusalemme, Israele. Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ: TEVA) ha annunciato che, in occasione del 64° meeting annuale dell’American Academy of Neurology (AAN), che si tiene a New Orleans, dal 21 al 28 aprile 2012, saranno presentati nuovi dati relativi al portfolio di prodotti per il sistema nervoso centrale. Trenta abstract presenteranno i dati sulle terapie già commercializzate e su quelle innovative in fase di sperimentazione, tra cui il farmaco più utilizzato per il trattamento della sclerosi multipla recidivante-remittente (RRMS), Copaxone (R) (glatiramer acetato per via sottocutanea ); Laquinimod, terapia orale in sperimentazione per la sclerosi multipla recidivante-remittente; Azilect (R) (rasagilina in compresse), un inibitore delle MAO-B per il trattamento del morbo di Parkinson, e Nuvigil compresse (R) (armodafinil) [C-IV], usato per migliorare lo stato di veglia in adulti che soffrano di eccessiva sonnolenza diurna (ES), associata a turni di lavoro notturni (SWD), ad apnee ostruttive nel sonno (OSA) o alla narcolessia.
Le presentazioni includono:
· I dati “ad interim” di uno studio prospettico in cui si è evidenziata una significativa riduzione della spasticità in soggetti con sclerosi multipla trattati con Copaxone (R) dopo aver interrotto una terapia con interferone-beta.
· I risultati di uno studio sull’uso di Copaxone (R) nella pratica clinica.
· Analisi associata degli studi di Fase III ALLEGRO e BRAVO dopo due anni di trattamento a sostegno dei vantaggi di laquinimod nella riduzione del tasso annualizzato delle ricadute, nella riduzione del rischio di progressione della disabilità a tre e sei mesi, così come sul tasso di riduzione del volume cerebrale.
· Ulteriori dati pre-clinici in modelli animali di sclerosi multipla hanno dimostrato che laquinimod modula alcune cellule del sistema nervoso centrale, come gli astrociti, con un meccanismo indipendente dal suo effetto sul sistema immunitario periferico.
· I risultati dello studio dimostrano che armodafinil migliora la latenza del sonno in pazienti con sonnolenza eccessiva associata a trauma cranico lieve o moderato.
