Hitachi-IBM Final Agreement on Hard Disk Drive Operations

Hitachi, Ltd. and IBM announced that they have reached a definitive agreement to transfer their hard disk drive (HDD) operations to a new standalone company under majority Hitachi ownership. These plans were originally announced in April as part of a larger storage relationship between the two companies.

Hitachi has agreed to purchase the majority of IBM's HDD-related assets for $2.05 billion, which includes the transfer of IBM's HDD-related intellectual property portfolio to the new organization. Hitachi will initially own 70 percent of this new company and will make a series of fixed payments to IBM before assuming full ownership after three years.

The new company will be based in San Jose, California, and managed by an independent team comprising executives from Hitachi and IBM's existing HDD operations. The new organization will bring together approximately 24,000 employees, about 18,000 from IBM and 6,000 from Hitachi, with major manufacturing operations at 11 locations around the world.
