Amkor Technology Inc Files Amended Complaint Against United Test and Assembly Center Ltd

United Test and Assembly Center Ltd. previously announced that the Superior Court of Arizona, Maricopa County had on January 5, 2015 issued a ruling in relation to the company's motion to dismiss Amkor Technology Inc.'s complaint. Subject to the applicable rules of court, the court granted the dismissal of seven out of nine claims made by Amkor. On February 13, 2015, Amkor filed an amended complaint in which it reasserted the two claims that had not been dismissed and reasserted one claim that the court had dismissed relating to Amkor's claim that it has a right to purchase certain patents belonging to ASAT Ltd. (now UTAC Hong Kong Ltd). Amkor's amended complaint confirmed that it is not seeking to reassert six of the claims that were dismissed, but is reserving a right to appeal the dismissal of those claims.

UTAC Plans IPO In 2015

United Test and Assembly Center Ltd. (UTAC) is planning an initial public offering (IPO). It is talks with bankers about a possible relisting. An IPO would capitalize on an unfolding upturn in its business, and enable the company to address its debt load of some $1.2 billion. UTAC's Chief Executive Officer, John ¬Nelson told The Edge Singapore: "Do we want to be sitting on a 10% bond? I don't think so. Obviously, at some point, we have to look at options. Since we feel the company is healthy, what opportunities do we have to correct that, to fix that financial burden?" He added that an IPO could take place next year. He further stated that any cash raised in an IPO is likely to be used to "restructure" the group's debt. "Based on our discussions with them, we don't believe there is an intention to use that cash themselves," he said.
