SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Texas Instruments says it is buying fellow
chipmaker National Semiconductor for $6.5 billion in cash in a move
to expand its share of the market for analog chips, which are used
in a wide range of electronics.
Texas Instruments Inc., based in Dallas, has agreed to pay $25 per share for Santa Clara, Calif.-based National Semiconductor Corp. That marks a 78 percent premium to that stock's closing stock price Monday before the deal was announced.
