"Intel, Micron Update NAND Flash Memory Joint Venture"
 Companies Expand Successful NAND Flash Memory Joint Development
 Program to Include Development of Emerging Memory Technologies
 Feb. 28, 2012

  "... today announced that the companies have entered into agreements
   to expand their NAND Flash memory joint venture relationship."

  "... a NAND Flash supply agreement for Micron to supply NAND products
   to Intel and agreements for certain joint venture assets to be sold
   to Micron. Under terms of the agreement, Intel is selling its stake
   in two wafer factories in exchange for approximately $600 million
   - the approximate book value of Intel's share. Additionally, Intel
   will be receiving approximately half of the consideration in cash and
   the remaining amount will be deposited with Micron, which may be
   refunded or applied to Intel's future purchases under the NAND Flash
   supply agreement."

  "As part of these agreements, Micron will increase its share of
   the overall NAND Flash output and optimize its global manufacturing
   network by purchasing the assets of IM Flash Singapore (IMFS) and
   the IM Flash Technologies (IMFT) assets in Manassas, Va."

  "Micron has also agreed to supply Intel with NAND Flash memory from
   its facilities. The IMFT joint venture NAND manufacturing facility
   in Lehi, Utah, will continue to operate with minimal changes to its
   existing operations. The facility is currently in production on
   the companies' industry-leading 20nm NAND Flash memory technology."
