Completion of the transaction is expected in second quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018, and is subject to approvals by InvenSense shareholders and the relevant regulatory authorities. The acquisition will be completed through a merger of a newly created subsidiary of TDK with and into InvenSense, with InvenSense continuing following the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of TDK.

InvenSense is a world forerunner in motion sensor solutions, known mostly for its flagship six-axis and nine-axis motion sensors, which are used in some of the world’s most advanced consumer products and applications.

Through the acquisition of InvenSense, TDK will be able to strengthen its product line-ups and technologies, which is expected to enable the combined company to become a stronger player in broad based sensor solutions for IoT, automotive and ICT by accelerating the sensor product roadmap to offer innovative next generation products and platforms.

The acquisition will enable TDK to combine InvenSense’s advanced suite of sensor and software platforms with its wide-ranging portfolio of magnetic, pressure, temperature, and microphone sensors.

TDK’s President and CEO, Mr. Shigenao Ishiguro, said,“TDK’s sensor business, one of its strategic growth areas, can be strengthened by merging TDK’s portfolio of magnetic sensor technologies (where its strength lies) and its wide range of sensor products with InvenSense’s expanding sensor technology. This acquisition is a fundamental element in TDK’s strategy to provide unique and high-value-added products and services in IoT. We aim to become a strong player in the sensor business with InvenSense as our perfect partner.”

InvenSense’s President and CEO Behrooz Abdi said: “This is an exciting day for InvenSense as our proposed acquisition by TDK represents what we view as a compelling win for InvenSense’s shareholders, customers and employees. TDK understands the value of InvenSense’s suite of sensor and software platforms. This merger is the culmination of years of innovation and execution by our world-class employees.”
