LSI Logic Corp. and Agere Systems Inc. have entered into a Rs.18,208 ($4 billion) all-stock merger transaction. The combined company, to be called LSI Logic Corp., will offer a comprehensive product line including semiconductors, systems and related software for storage, networking and consumer electronics. The companies have combined revenue of Rs.15,932 crore ($3.5 billion) for the 12 months ended Sept. 30.

"By joining forces, we expect the combined scale to enable us to extend our franchises in our market segments, realise significant synergies and better serve the needs of our collective customers, shareholders and employees," said Abhi Talwalkar, LSI Logic president and CEO.

Richard Clemmer, Agere Systems president and CEO said, "Together, the two companies should be well positioned to achieve greater success. The complementary products and capabilities of each can enable the combined company to pursue significant new opportunities while delivering more value to customers."

In terms of savings, the combined company is expected to cut costs by at least Rs.569 crore ($125 million) in 2008 from increased efficiencies in manufacturing and operating expenses.

Talwalkar will serve as president and CEO of the new company, to be headquartered in Milpitas, California. LSI non-executive chairman James Keyes will serve as non-executive chairman of the board of directors of the new company.
