Philips merges Lumileds and Automotive businesses

Dutch technology giant Philips is merging its Lumileds and Automotive lighting businesses, the company announced today. Both businesses had combined sales of about 1.4 billion euros, roughly $1.9 billion, last year.

Philips is expecting the merger to open new investment opportunities. Philips Group will continue to be a shareholder of the new company. Taking charge is Pierre-Yves Lesaicherre, the current CEO of Lumileds.

The integration of the two businesses within Philips Group is expected to close in 2015. Meanwhile, Philips is expected to spend over 30 million euros this year to set up the two businesses.

“Philips’ strategy in Lighting is to intensify its focus on connected LED lighting systems and services, LED luminaires, and LED lamps for the professional and consumer markets. Both our Lumileds and Automotive lighting businesses are strong players in the lighting industry and ready to pursue more growth and scale, independently of Philips Lighting," said Frans van Houten, Chief Executive Officer of Philips.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
