Silicon Labs Completes Acquisition Of Energy Micro

Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Energy Micro AS. This strategic acquisition accelerates Silicon Labs’ growth opportunities and positions the company as the foremost innovator in energy-friendly embedded solutions for the Internet of Things, smart energy, home automation, security and portable electronics markets.

Based in Oslo, Norway, Energy Micro offers the industry’s most energy-efficient portfolio of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) based on the industry-leading ARM® Cortex™-M architecture and is developing multi-protocol wireless RF solutions also based on ARM architecture. Energy Micro’s ultra-low-power portfolio complements Silicon Labs’ existing 32-bit Precision32™ mixed-signal MCUs and sub-GHz and ZigBee® wireless RF products and targets a rapidly growing embedded market. The acquisition greatly expands Silicon Labs’ 32-bit MCU and wireless SoC portfolio, adding nearly 250 energy-friendly MCUs and new low-power wireless protocols such as Bluetooth LE.

Under the agreement, the shareholders of Energy Micro will receive an up-front payment of $115 million in cash, plus approximately $55 million in deferred and earn-out consideration. Energy Micro is expected to contribute approximately $7 million in revenue in the second half of 2013. Anticipated growth is expected to allow the transaction to be accretive on a non-GAAP basis by the end of 2014.
