Microsemi to Acquire Vitesse Semiconductor for $389 Million

first_imgMicrosemi on Wednesday 18th March, announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Vitesse for $389 Million. This can be broken down to $5.28 per share through a cash tender offer, representing a premium of 32 percent based on the average closing price on the 17th of March 2015.Headquartered in Camarillo, California, Vitesse designs a diverse portfolio of high-performance semiconductors, application software, and integrated turnkey systems solutions for carrier, enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) networks worldwide. Vitesse’s products enable the fastest-growing network infrastructure markets including mobile access/IP edge, enterprise cloud access, and industrial-IoT networking.With this acquisition Microsemi will be able to leverage Vitesse’s Ethernet technology and capabilities further into the communications market and has the scale to implement the adoption of our industrial IoT strategy. Vitesse’s highly complementary technology suite should expand Microsemi’s product offering and accelerate growth with differentiated technology in emerging markets, while benefitting from the increased scale, consolidated infrastructure and cost savings of the combined entity. Microsemi expects significant synergies from this transaction and expects to see immediate accretion in the first full quarter of completion. Based on current assumptions, Microsemi expects the acquisition to be $0.16 to $0.20 per share accretive in its first full fiscal year ending September 30, 2016.last_img read more

The Cavs deal with the 76’ers on Friday to trade Sasha Kaun has cleared up a roster spot, and that spot will be taken by Chris ‘Birdman’ Andersen, who made a deal with the Cavs last week. The deal with the 76’ers got them the rights to Chukwudiebere Maduabum, as they dealt Kaun as well as cash considerations. The 38-year-old Andersen has played with eight different teams. He played in 20 games for the Grizzlies last season and averaged 4.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per contest. His connection with the Cavs has to do with LeBron James, who he played with in Miami, and even won a title with in 2013. Related TopicsCavsChris ‘Birdman’ AndersenSasha Kaunlast_img read more

Indians Beat Writer Paul Hoynes Admits He Was Wrong; Twitter Has A Field Day

first_imgIf you’re not familiar with the saga of Paul Hoynes in 2016, it is a tale of despair, hope, and redemption.Hoynes declared the Indians’ hopes of having a successful postseason dead and buried on Sept. 17.He received criticism from fans and even players, like Jason Kipnis and Trevor Bauer.The Indians proved all the doubters wrong, including Hoynsie, with a three-game sweep over the Red Sox.Now they have home field advantage for the rest of the playoffs and host the Toronto Blue Jays in the ALCS.All of this led Hoynes to make the following revelation.When you’re wrong, you’re wrong and I was wrong about demise of Cleveland Indians https://t.co/C4ItZXVj1s— paul hoynes (@hoynsie) October 11, 2016It takes a big person to admit a mistake.It then takes the world of Twitter five seconds to remind the person of that mistake in a hilarious manner.Enter: @HipsterTitoThis guy literally started the “Party At Napoli’s” movement, which now transcends baseball and is a universal sign of solidarity from Cleveland to Boston and beyond for all members of Tribe Nation.It probably only took him three minutes to put this masterpiece together.

Report: Cardiff City Under-23s 2-2 Bristol City Under-23s

first_imgSecond-half goals from Kel Akpobire and Antoine Semenyo saw the away side draw level in a highly contested match against the young Bluebirds.City tried their best to play on the tricky surface with some nice interchanges early on and nearly took the lead through James Morton. He drifted through midfield and let fly from 25 yards, crashing his effort against the bar.However, Luke Williams’ side fell behind early on in the first half, when Mark Harris burst through on goal. One-on-one with Jojo Wollacott he slotted the ball calmly beneath the onrushing goalkeeper.City’s work was made harder when, five minutes from the end of the first half, Kyle Spence’s dangerous cross was deflected into the net to double the host’s lead.City needed a spirited second half and came out raring to go. Tin Plavotic went close with a header but was deemed to have fouled the ‘keeper, before Kel Akpobire got City back in the game.The ball bounced around the area before it fell to the forward who reacted quickest in the area. He prodded home from six yards to give City some hope.Cardiff’s Mark Harris continued to cause trouble for City, but the away side weathered the pressure the Bluebirds threw at them with Morton having a terrific afternoon in midfield.City continued to be patient and it was duly rewarded when the comeback was completed on 78 minutes. Antoine Semenyo received the ball in the area and finished neatly on the turn and beyond Ollie Byrne in the Cardiff goal.Cardiff had the ball in the back of the net again moments later, but Mark Harris was comfortably offside as he rounded the keeper.City Under-23s: Wollacott, Ali, Plavotic, Morton, Parsons, Harvey Smith, Zac Smith, Richards, Semenyo, Day, Akpobire. Subs not used: Harper, Sesay, Harry Smith. Report: Liam Potterlast_img read more

Merissa Aguilleira: Ex-West Indies captain retires from international cricket

first_img(BBC) Long-serving former West Indies captain and wicketkeeper Merissa Aguilleira has retired from international cricket. The 33-year-old played in 112 one-day internationals since 2008, including 74 as captain, and also led the side in 73 of her 95 Twenty20 internationals.However, last week she was left out of the Windies squad which will tour England and Ireland this summer.“It is an absolute honour to have been of service to West Indies cricket,” the Trinidadian right-hander said. Under Aguilleira’s captaincy, West Indies were losing finalists to Australia in the Women’s World Cup in 2013, while she was also part of the side which won the Women’s World Twenty20 in 2016. Her record of 70 T20 international dismissals is joint second on the all-time list, behind England’s Sarah Taylor (73).Cricket West Indies director of cricket Jimmy Adams, himself a former Windies captain, added: “From my own experience this cannot be the easiest of times for Merissa. However, her dignity and candour in communicating this decision has been exceptional.“Far exceeding the statistics, Merissa has been the epitome of professionalism throughout her career whilst consistently upholding the highest possible standards on and off the field.”last_img read more

Jackée Harry says she was “giddy” to play her role of Mrs. Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta’

first_imgRandy Shropshire/Stringer(LOS ANGELES) — Jackée Harry is taking on a role near and dear to her heart in Lifetime’s contemporary take on the classic novel Pride and Prejudice, titled Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta.In the new film, Harry plays the classic character of Mrs. Bennet, a mother who wants one of her daughters to marry the new bachelor in town. However, in this iteration, Mrs. Bennet is no longer English gentry, but a preacher’s wife and relationship expert who feels compelled to see her five daughters happily married.“I was so giddy to play her,” Harry tells ABC Radio. “I knew just what I wanted to do with it. When I got the script immediately. And I worked on it and it was a lot of work. We worked really, really hard.”In fact, Harry reveals she’s been huge fan of not only the book, but the original 1940s Pride and Prejudice film.“The original Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier, oh yes it’s my favorite,” Harry says. “I relate to Mrs. Bennet — [Mary Boland]… I watch it all the time. So, definitely that was my source material. A lot of people are not familiar with it but I’m totally, totally familiar with with all those classics back then.”While Harry was happy to jump on the project, the 227 alum reveals that one of the things that most impressed her about the production was the amazing people behind the scenes — including the film’s young African American director, Ronda Barka.“Everybody kind of took it for granted but not me,” said Harry. “Because I rarely work for women producers, or directors. So, every time I get the opportunity I’m just giddy about it.”Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta, also starring Tiffany Hines and Reginald VelJohnson, airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
