Sale of TranSiC AB

The US company Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation has acquired all shares in TranSiC AB from, among others, Volvo Technology Transfer AB, Stiftelsen Industrifonden and Midroc New Technology AB.

TranSiC AB was formed in 2005 and has its origin in research at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). The company, with operations in Kista, develops, manufactures and sells silicon carbide transistors for various applications including the growing market for hybrid vehicles.

The sellers were advised by Mannheimer Swartling. Clas Nyberg handled the matter, primarily assisted by Emma Olnäs Fors and Linnéa Sundqvist Heim.
