Note 9 : Acquisitions and Divestitures
Acquisition of Tower Semiconductor
During the first quarter of 2022, we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Tower Semiconductor Ltd. (Tower) in a cash-for-stock transaction. Tower is a leading foundry for analog semiconductor solutions. The acquisition is intended to advance our IDM 2.0 strategy by accelerating our global end-to-end foundry business. Under the agreement, each issued and outstanding ordinary share of Tower would be converted at closing into the right to receive $53 per share in cash, representing a total enterprise value of approximately $5.4 billion as of the agreement date. We continue to work to close the transaction, which remains subject to certain regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions. If regulatory approvals are not received prior to August 15, 2023, and the agreement is terminated by either party, we may be obligated to pay Tower a termination fee of $353 million. If the acquisition is completed, Tower will be included in our IFS operating segment.
NAND Memory Business
On December 29, 2021, we closed the first phase of our agreement with SK hynix Inc. (SK hynix) to divest our NAND memory business for $9.0 billion in cash. Our NAND memory business includes our NAND memory technology and manufacturing business (the NAND OpCo Business), of which we deconsolidated our ongoing interests in as part of the sale. The transaction will be completed in two closings and upon the first closing in the first quarter of 2022, SK hynix paid $7.0 billion of consideration and we recognized a pre-tax gain of $1.0 billion within interest and other, net, and tax expense of $495 million. We recorded a receivable in other long-term assets for the remaining proceeds of $1.9 billion which remains outstanding as of July 1, 2023, and will be received upon the second closing of the transaction, expected to be no earlier than March 2025.
The wafer manufacturing and sale agreement includes incentives and penalties that are contingent on the cost of operation and output of the NAND OpCo Business. These incentives and penalties present a maximum exposure of up to $500 million annually, and $1.5 billion in the aggregate. We are currently in negotiations with SK hynix to update the operating plan of the NAND OpCo Business in light of the current business environment and projections, which may impact the metrics associated with the incentives and penalties and our expectations of the performance of the NAND OpCo Business against those metrics.
As of July 1, 2023, we also have a receivable due from the NAND OpCo Business, a deconsolidated entity, of $201 million recorded within other current assets on the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets. We will be reimbursed for costs of $32 million per quarter in 2023 for corporate function services, which include human resources, information technology, finance, supply chain, and other compliance requirements associated with being wholly owned subsidiaries.
