NAND Memory Business
On October 19, 2020, we signed an agreement with SK hynix Inc. (SK hynix) to divest our NAND memory business, including our NAND memory fabrication facility in Dalian, China and certain related equipment and tangible assets (the Fab Assets), our NAND SSD business (the NAND SSD Business), and our NAND memory technology and manufacturing business (the NAND OpCo Business). Our Intel Optane memory business is expressly excluded from the transaction. The transaction will occur over two closings for total consideration of $9.0 billion in cash, of which $7.0 billion will be received upon initial closing, not to occur prior to November 1, 2021, and the remaining $2.0 billion will be received no earlier than March 2025. The consummations of the first closing and the second closing are subject to customary conditions, including the receipt of certain governmental approvals.
At the first closing, Intel will sell to SK hynix the Fab Assets and the NAND SSD Business, and SK hynix will assume from Intel certain liabilities related to the Fab Assets and the NAND SSD Business. In connection with the first closing, we and certain affiliates of SK hynix will also enter into a NAND wafer manufacturing and sale agreement pursuant to which we will manufacture and sell to SK hynix NAND memory wafers to be manufactured using the Fab Assets in Dalian, China, until the second closing.
We will transfer certain employees, IP, and other assets related to the NAND OpCo Business to separately created, wholly owned subsidiaries of Intel at the first closing. The equity interest of these wholly owned subsidiaries will transfer to SK hynix at the second closing. We have concluded based on the terms of the transaction agreements that the subsidiaries will be variable interest entities for which we are not the primary beneficiary, and accordingly will deconsolidate at the first closing.
The carrying amounts of the major classes of NAND assets held for sale included the following:
We ceased recording depreciation on property, plant and equipment as of the date the assets triggered held for sale accounting. Total capital purchases of approximately $1.8 billion expected in 2021 prior to the first closing will be classified as assets held for sale in the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets and within additions to held for sale NAND property, plant and equipment on the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Cash Flows.
The entire disclosure for business combinations, including leverage buyout transactions (as applicable), and divestitures. This may include a description of a business combination or divestiture (or series of individually immaterial business combinations or divestitures) completed during the period, including background, timing, and assets and liabilities recognized and reclassified or sold. This element does not include fixed asset sales and plant closings.
