MicronMicron purchases fabrication facility in Nampa Idaho : Micron Technology, Inc., today announced it has purchased a fabrication facility in Nampa, Idaho, from ZiLOG, Inc. Micron plans to use the facility for the final stages of image sensor production and other fabrication processes. Micron is the technology industry's leading supplier of CMOS image sensor solutions. Micron purchased the 8-inch wafer fabrication facility and surrounding land from ZiLOG and its affiliate, ZiLOG Mod III, Inc., for a total consideration of $5 million. ZiLOG Mod III received about $3.9 million for the facility and 19 acres of the surrounding land, and ZiLOG received $1 million for its vacant 19 acres at the site.

The transaction costs will be apportioned on a prorated basis to the parties. Micron plans to invest in facility improvements and expects to bring the facility online by the end of the year. Micron also expects to hire operators, technicians and support staff at the facility. "Micron is the world's leading supplier of advanced image sensor solutions in applications ranging from mobile camera phones and PC cameras to healthcare, security and automotive markets," said Steve Appleton, Micron chairman, CEO and president. "This acquisition allows us to move the final stages of image sensor silicon processing and other critical manufacturing steps from our Boise manufacturing operations to this new facility, which at the same time will free up space in our existing facilities and allow us to continue to meet expanding demand for our products."

ZiLOG - Fabrication facility sold to Micron
The sale of the MOD III facility to Micron includes all land and buildings owned by ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. and certain vacant property owned by ZiLOG, Inc. ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. was a special subsidiary established by ZiLOG, Inc. in 2002 to hold the Mod III assets pending their sale. "We are very pleased to close this transaction with a company like Micron Technology whose leadership is well known around the world," said ZiLOG, Inc, Chief Financial Officer Perry Grace. "The transaction is a very positive development for ZiLOG and ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. shareholders, Micron and most importantly for the Nampa community."

ZiLOG - Transaction costs
The cost of the transaction to ZiLOG is estimated to be $300,000 and the costs to liquidate ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. are estimated to be $200,000 which will be netted from the proceeds. Of the $5 million proceeds from the sales, it is anticipated that approximately $2.5 million will be distributed to holders of ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. Series A Preferred Stock and $2 million will be retained by ZiLOG, Inc. This transaction represents the sale of the remaining assets in Mod III and, as such, ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. expects to seek a shareholder vote to liquidate and distribute net proceeds to its preferred shareholders at the conclusion of that process. The estimated distribution to the ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. shareholders reflects a reimbursement to ZiLOG of costs it has incurred totaling approximately $800,000. These costs include sustaining costs incurred by ZiLOG on behalf of ZiLOG Mod III, Inc. since the last sale of assets in 2004.
