The prime capital stock of Nuvoton will be $82 million. To ensure that all shareholders' rights and interests are well protected, the project will adopt the existing business partition mode so the net value of Winbond will not be affected.

As a whole, with the specialization and division of labors, Winbond and Nuvoton will concentrate on memory and logic business, respectively, and give rise to the greatest mutual profits to be shared with all shareholders.
