Japanese DRAM manufacturer Elpida held a meeting of board of directors on February 27, 2012 and decided to file for corporate reorganization proceedings (bankruptcy protection) with a Tokyo District Court. The court accepted Elpida's application. Elpida's bombshell announcement is anticipated to bring much uncertainty to the global DRAM industry. With close connections to Elpida as suppliers and competitors, this incidence is expected to affect the Taiwanese DRAM industry players and further spill over to Taiwan's memory industry and even the entire semiconductor industry. This report offers insight into Elpida's corporate restructuring proceedings and its implications for the global and Taiwanese DRAM industries.
