Diversification delivers growth

Update | Electronics & Electrical Equipment | 22 Mar 2016

IQE's diversification strategy enabled it to deliver growth in profits and sales during FY15 despite weakness in the wireless market and associated destocking. Non-wireless sales accounted for 30% of revenues compared with 20% in FY14. The acquisition of exclusive licensing rights for gallium nitride-on-silicon (GaN-on-Si) technology from Translucent and formation of JVs in the UK and Singapore have laid the foundations for new revenue streams, which have already benefited the FY15 results.

South American Silver Corp

Hi-ho silver!

Outlook | Mining | 10 Jan 2012

South American Silver intends to enter the ranks of the world's top silver producers by developing its Malku Khota (100%) silver-indium-gallium project in Bolivia (commissioning due Q115) and exploring for gold-copper-silver at its Escalones (100%) project in Chile. Based on the 10 May 2011 Malku Khota Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) findings and valuing the recently announced Escalones maiden resource (using a US$59/t inferred Cu multiple on the 4.5BIbs CuEq resource), our total valuation for South American Silver is US$10.09/share (10% discount and US$25/oz Ag).

NanoGaN acquisition

Update | Technology | 05 Oct 2009

IQE today announced that it is to acquire UK-based NanoGaN, which has established a range of unique processes and intellectual property relating to gallium nitride (GaN) materials and devices. This gives IQE ownership of NanoGaN’s proprietary Nanocolumn Technology for producing high-quality, free-standing gallium nitride (FS-GaN) substrates. The technology is critical for manufacturing high-quality blue and green semiconductor lasers and ultra high brightness LEDs (light-emitting diodes) for solid state lighting. Initial production will commence at NanoGaN’s own facilities where it is expected to begin generating sales in 2010, rising strongly thereafter. Management expects the acquisition will add at least 1.1p to EPS by 2014.
