From a news agency Bloomberg it became known that the plans NTS by takeover S3 Graphics, which became known in July of this year, are likely to fail. The reason is the inappropriateness of the transaction.
The fact is that S3 Graphics needed NTS only for patent rights, for litigation with Apple. However, as it turned out, this deal could not help at all. NTS. The fact is, in fact, the real owner of the patents is AMD. As a result NTS lost a big fight Apple and now sales of its devices in the United States are in question.
How it happened that the Taiwanese company failed to deal with the ownership of patents is not clear.
It was expected that the acquisition S3 Graphics will be completed as soon as possible. NTS had to pay $300 million.
