Team of Raiffeisen Switzerland acted as exclusive financial advisors to Sensima’s private shareholders

Sensima is spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. It developes patented technologies in the field of Hall-based magnetic angle sensing. Monolithic Power Systems Inc (MPS), the US-based analog semiconductor company, has acquired Sensima Technology SA, the Switzerland-based semiconductor company engaged in the design, development, marketing, and distribution of integrated CMOS magnetic sensors for on-chip magnetic sensing, for an initial cash consideration of USD 11.7m.
MPS will also pay cash earnouts of USD 8.9m based on Sensima’s achievement of certain performance goals. As per the agreed terms, the key employees of MPS will be eligible to receive time-based and performance-based restricted stock units in connection with this transaction. The unique technology of Sensima will complement Monolithic’s diversification strategy thereby creating new opportunities with key customers.
The combination of Sensima’s real time precision magnetic angle sensing with Monolithic’s technologies would offer revolutionized solutions for key industries such as automotive, industrial and cloud computing. The acquisition is not expected to put a significant financial impact on the future operating results of MPS.
Deal was executed by current Raiffeisen Corporate Finance team members under the J. Safra Sarasin umbrella, prior to joining MidCap/Raiffeisen.
