OCZ overlever ved hjælp af Toshiba


Der har været mange rygter her på det seneste: Skal OCZ lukke helt ned? Hvad med vores garanti?
Nu er der sket en masse indenfor OCZ her den seneste tid, lige siden de officielt sagde de var gået konkurs. Der har også været tale om at Toshiba ville gribe ind og hjælpe OCZ - og det har de nemlig gjort! Toshiba og OCZ har lavet en aftale sammen.

Så vi kan allesammen ånde lettet op. OCZ fortsætter - De får den fornødne hjælp fra Toshiba.



Samtidig med at OCZ får mulighed for at vise deres værd får de også en unik aftale med Toshiba som vil give endnu flere muligheder for at se OCZ SSD'er måske i bærbare.

OCZ Reaches Agreement with Toshiba Corporation to Acquire Solid State Drive Business

Toshiba to Acquire OCZ's SSD Client, Enterprise and Software Divisions

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/02/13 -- OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that the Company has signed an asset purchase agreement with Toshiba Corporation, a global technology leader and manufacturer of NAND flash memory, to acquire substantially all of OCZ's assets in a chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding for $35M. Under this agreement Toshiba will acquire OCZ's client and enterprise solid state drive business. OCZ will continue to operate and serve existing and future customers during this process. Toshiba has agreed to provide the Company with DIP (Debtor-in-Possession) financing to ensure that there is adequate capital and flash supply to support the business during the contemplated sale period. The consummation of the asset purchase agreement is subject to an auction and approval by the bankruptcy court in the Company's bankruptcy case.

This acquisition will provide Toshiba with access to OCZ's proprietary controllers, firmware and software, as well as the teams responsible for bringing these solutions to market, in addition to OCZ's established brand and sales channels. This strategic opportunity will bring critical controller IP and NAND supply all under one global organization, allowing for an even more robust and competitive solid state solution offering for all of OCZ's and Toshiba's mutual customers moving forward.

"Over the past year, OCZ has dealt with numerous issues which have stressed the company's capital structure and operating model, posing a challenge to achieving near term profitability. The combination of NAND flash supply constraints and credit issues have impacted our ability to satisfy the demands of our customers; this combined with increased pricing pressure in our industry have contributed to our on-going operating losses. On an operational basis, we completed a complex investigation, several restructurings and a multi-year restatement that added significantly to our working capital requirements," stated Ralph Schmitt, CEO of OCZ. "We have been working diligently on this partnership with Toshiba and we believe that this is the best outcome under our current corporate conditions."

"We are excited to participate in this opportunity. If our bid is successful, the combination of our leading NAND technology with OCZ's SSD expertise will allow us to further strengthen Toshiba's SSD business," said Mr. Seiichi Mori, Vice President of Toshiba's Semiconductor and Storage Company and Corporate Vice President of Toshiba. "We value OCZ's SSD business and technology in both the consumer and enterprise markets, and we are confident that it will reinforce our capabilities and help us to secure leadership in the SSD market."

This transaction has been approved by the Board of Directors of OCZ, and it is expected that the sale will close within approximately 60 days.

ej, du skrev bare ikke ssd drev

Er ret sikker på at det faktisk er mere korrekt ifh til dansk gramatik at en SSD eller HDD, faktisk kaldes for et SSD drev eller Harddisk drev, da både Harddisk, HDD og SSD realt er fremmedord (eller hvad det nu engang hedder)

I den sammenhængen anses det, om så det er HDD eller SSD, som et enkelt fremmedord/forkortelse, og derved er der intet galt i at man bruger den danske betegnelse for enheden, selvom dette er med i den udlandske forkortelse 🙂

Minder lidt om når folk omtaler en SSD som SSDharddisk. 😛
