The French government has bought 2.85-percent stake in STMicroelectronics NV from Finmeccanica SpA for about 260 million euros (about $386 million) so as to preserve ST's independence, reported French President Nicolas Sarkozy's office.
A statement from the Elyse Palace, Sarkozy's official residence, indicated that France paid 10 euros a share for ST's stake. The French state is likely to make an additional payment of as much as 4 euros a share based on the stock price over a period of three months.
"Integrated circuits that STMicroelectronics designs and produces play a strategic role for the innovation of major industrial branches, in France and in Europe. Thanks to its presence in France, STMicroelectronics has become a key player in research and development as well as production in the advanced technological field of nanoelectronics," the Elyse stated.
