It is said two
important points of the impact that the Lumileds’ acquisition by GO Scale
Capital has on the LED industry:
Lumileds is one of the five
major IP holders in the LED industry. The acquisition also provides the company
an additional 600 patents from Royal Philips. In the future, Lumileds will be
able to license its vast patent holding in order to boost its operating
results. Chinese LED manufacturers will also be able to break through the
patent barriers surrounding the foreign markets. With Chinese investors having
the controlling stake in Lumileds, China-based companies will have a greater
voice when it comes to resolving patent issues and establishing their presence
in the global LED market.
2. GO Scale Capital consolidates its resources and provides Lumileds more
GO Scale Capital has made a series of investments in companies positioned on
the LED supply chain: Lattice Power (epi wafer), TimesLED (epi wafer), ShineOn
(package), SunSun Lighting (LED luminaries, like led downlight), and Alighting
(LED luminaires and heat dissipation). Once Go Scale Capital has the
controlling stake in Lumileds, it may consolidate all its industry-related
interests, inserting its new acquisition into the supply chain.
We expects Lumileds manufacturing outsourcing to other LED makers to continue
as Lumileds gains strategic partners in China after the takeover.
