"We are delighted to have completed this acquisition," said Sang Park, MagnaChip's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The acquisition of Dawin Electronics expands MagnaChip's offering of Power Solutions products to the commercial and industrial markets and will enable MagnaChip to compete quickly and effectively with a broader portfolio of IGBT power solutions. We are very excited about this transaction and the additional value we expect to create for our shareholders and customers."

IGBTs are used in a broad range of medium- to high-power commercial and industrial applications and in many consumer appliances such as variable speed refrigerators, air-conditioners and stereo systems. Availability of affordable, reliable IGBTs is also an important enabler for electric vehicles and hybrid cars. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
