SAN JOSESanmina-SCI has signed a definitive agreement with Foxteq Holdings (a subsidiary of Foxconn Technology) to sell certain assets of its PC business, the company said today.

Sanmina expects to net $80 million to $90 million on the sale, which is expected to close during the June quarter.
Separately, Sanmina-SCI said it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Lenovo to sell its Monterrey, Mexico, manufacturing facilities and other assets.
The PC asset sale, which Sanmina-SCI officers announced in November 2006, is expected to reap $200 million in financial benefits. The company decided to cut ties with the business unit – a legacy of SCI – as it was no longer core to its long-term strategy.
The PC business generated $3.3B billion in sales in fiscal 2007, or roughly 31% of total sales. Its three primary customers are HP, IBM and Lenovo.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
