Last Updated: 16:13 June 16, 2014
SanDisk, a maker of flash memory products for smartphones, tablets, personal computers and data centers, has agreed to pay $1.1 billion in cash for Fusion-io, which specializes in flash-based hardware and software solutions. The deal amounts to $11.25 per share, and is expected to close in the third quarter.
Officials for SanDisk and Fusion-io could not be reached Monday, and the fate of Fusion-io's local operations was not immediately known.
Fusion-io paid $119 million a little more than a year ago to purchase Louisville-based NexGen Storage Inc. As of December, Fusion-io employed 100 people locally.
