Takata Corporation and KSS Sign Definitive Asset Purchase Agreement

Takata Files Joint Chapter 11 Plan in its U.S. Chapter 11 Cases

Parties Announce Accord on Restructuring Support Agreements Among Takata, KSS and Customer Group

Companies Expect to Close the Transaction in the First Quarter of 2018

TOKYO & STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Takata Corporation (“Takata” or the “Company”), a leading global supplier of automotive safety systems such as seat belts, airbags and child seats, today announced that it has signed a definitive asset purchase agreement with Key Safety Systems (“KSS”), a global leader in mobility safety, headquartered in Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA, under which KSS will acquire substantially all of Takata’s global assets and operations for an aggregate purchase price of $1.588 billion (approximately ¥175 billion).*

The definitive asset purchase agreement is consistent with the agreement in principle announced by KSS and Takata on June 26, 2017. Specifically, under the agreement, KSS will acquire substantially all of Takata’s assets, except for certain assets and operations related to Takata’s manufacturing and sale of phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) airbag inflators. Takata’s PSAN-related operations will be run by reorganized Takata following the transaction closing and eventually will be wound down. Takata will continue to produce airbag inflator replacements to meet demands without interruption.

Shigehisa Takada, Chairman & CEO of Takata, said: “We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with KSS, which is an important step toward the consummation of our sale and achieving the objectives we identified at the outset of this process. Our top priorities continue to be providing a steady supply of products to our valued customers, including replacement parts for recalls, and a stable home for our exceptional employees. We believe that the combined business will be well positioned for long-term success in the global automotive industry.”

Yuxin Tang, President of KSS, said: “The acquisition of Takata fits perfectly with KSS’s century-long commitment to the automotive business. The combined company will enhance our ability to serve customers globally and provide superior products and innovation in the rapidly evolving auto safety industry. We enter this transaction in a spirit of partnership and anticipate executives and employees from both KSS and Takata together will play important roles -- from initial integration through strategic execution. We look forward to completing the transaction and advancing the next phase of growth for the new combined company.”

Takata has filed final forms of all definitive transaction documents in the U.S., including its Chapter 11 plan in the U.S., as well as certain restructuring support agreements pursuant to which Takata, KSS, and a significant group of Takata’s OEM customers have committed to support the Global Transaction. The closing of the transaction is subject to bankruptcy court approval in both Japan and the United States, consenting OEM agreements and customer documentation, receipt of regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018.

Takata intends to use the proceeds from sale to meet requirements of plea agreement with U.S. Department of Justice, to satisfy administrative costs and expenses of the restructuring, and to fund unsecured creditor recoveries.

Takata continues to work through proceedings under the Civil Rehabilitation Act in Japan and the Chapter 11 process in the U.S., under which the sale transaction is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2018. At the same time, Takata EMEA (“Europe, Middle East and Africa”) maintains their financial independence and continues to operate on a financially solid basis without planning to file for insolvency proceedings.

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP is serving as legal counsel, KPMG is serving as financial advisor, and Jefferies LLC is acting as lead financial advisor to KSS.

Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP are serving as legal counsel to Takata. PricewaterhouseCoopers is serving as financial advisor, and Lazard is serving as investment banker to Takata.

TrendForce Says the Chinese Government Continues “Big Fund” to Support Key Semiconductor Sectors in China Including Memory and IC Design

TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#5G--China’s semiconductor industry has been thriving since 2015 driven by the Chinese government’s supportive policy and industry fund, with the revenue expected to exceed RMB 620 billion in 2018. According to TrendForce’s latest report Breakdown Analysis of China’s Semiconductor Industry, the Chinese government will continue supporting heavily in this industry at levels of central government and local authorities. In addition to assisting weak yet significant nodes in the industry chain, the National IC Investment Fund (called the "Big Fund") will mainly focus on three key sectors in the coming years, including memory, SiC/GaN compound semiconductor, and IC design with its application in IoT, 5G, AI, smart vehicles, etc.


The year 2014 is a turning point for China’s semiconductor industry with the government’s announcement of National IC Industry Development Outline in June and the “Big Fund" in September, points out by Jeter Teo, research director of TrendForce. The government used to offer research and development rewards, tax reduction and land subsidies, but this is the first time for the state to set investment fund and adopt market-oriented approaches like mergers and acquisitions to enhance the manufacturing capacity and international competitiveness of China's semiconductor industry.

With the support of the “Big Fund" by far, Tsinghua Unigroup bought Spreadtrum and RDA, Jiangsu Changjiang Electronics Technology Co., Ltd (JCET) acquired STATS ChipPAC and grew to a global top 3 IC testing and packaging company, Tongfu Microelectronics Co., Ltd (TFME) launched new joint venture combining AMD’s high-volume assembly, test and packaging facilities (ATMP) . In addition, steps have been taken to increase domestic IC production. As the result, China’s semiconductor industry has made progress regarding both quality and quantity, shortening the gap between China and other foreign rivals.

The first phase of “Big Fund” invests mainly on IC manufacturing, while the second phase will have higher investment proportion on IC design

By September 2017, the first phase of the “Big Fund” has raised RMB 138.72 billion, a total investment in 55 projects, reports TrendForce. The promised funding is RMB 100.3 billion and the actual investment is RMB 65.3 billion, of which IC manufacturing accounts for the largest proportion (65%). At present, the second phase of the “Big Fund” is being raised, which is estimated to reach RMB 150-200 billion. The investment projects will also be adjusted. TrendForce forecast estimates that the proportion in IC design will increase to 20%-25 %, and the investment projects will also be expanded to potential startups.

On the other hand, China’s strategy of developing domestic semiconductor industry has witnessed a clear trend - the central government drives local development. By June 2017, the amount of local semiconductor industry investment funds has reached RMB 514.5 billion in line with the “Big Fund”, of which the largest one accounts for RMB 50 billion. In response to the central government's strategy, local authorities have put forward special policies for the semiconductor industry, which cover funding, research and development, investment, innovation and talent, etc. This shows that local authorities not only have the determination to develop semiconductor industry, but also initiative substantial practical support.

In addition, driven by local governments’ active involvement in semiconductor industry, some cities will grow more prominent, which will also lead to changes in the China’s semiconductor industry structure in the coming years, points out TrendForce. Hefei, Xiamen and Jinjiang are expected to emerge as major industrial regions of China's new generation of semiconductor industry.

For the further details of the press release and the following figures – Figure 1: Investment Proportion of National "Big Fund" in Industry Chain (by September 2017) and Figure 2: Revenue ranking for the semiconductor industry of China's major provinces and cities in 2016 – please visit:

• Rose Period Picasso from Gertrude Stein’s Collection

• Most Valuable Matisse Ever Offered at Auction

Global Tour of Highlights:

• Hong Kong: November 24-27

• London, Los Angeles, New York: Spring 2018

Tours and Exhibitions Presented by VistaJet

“Eventually all these objects which have brought so much pleasure to Peggy and me will go out into the world and will again be available to other caretakers who, hopefully, will derive the same satisfaction and joy from them as we have over these past several decades.”
- David Rockefeller

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Christies--Christie’s announces the first highlights from the collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller to be unveiled in Hong Kong on November 24, which marks the start of a global tour of collection highlights presented by private aviation company VistaJet. The collection will be offered for sale at Christie’s Rockefeller Center Galleries in New York in the Spring of 2018. The collection sale will be the most significant philanthropic auction ever presented, with all the Estate sale proceeds destined to benefit selected charities. The first highlights include masterpieces of Impressionist and Modern Art, including a Rose Period Picasso selected by Peggy and David Rockefeller from Gertrude Stein’s collection (estimate in the region of $70 million), Claude Monet’s Nymphéas en fleur, painted circa 1914-1917 (estimate in the region of $35 million), and a sumptuous 1923 reclining nude by Matisse that is poised to reset the artist’s record high price at auction (estimate in the region of $50 million).


The Hong Kong exhibition (November 24-27) will be followed by global tours to Christie’s flagship locations in London, Los Angeles and New York, revealing new facets of this multi-category collection with each stop. A robust program of client events including art forums and lecture series will coincide with public exhibitions at each location.

For the first Hong Kong highlights exhibition, Christie’s has selected paintings, furniture and works of art that reflect the Rockefeller family’s wide ranging interests and intellectual pursuits. Gathered over a lifetime and inherited from previous generations, the Collection reflects the Rockefeller family’s deep, life-long passion for Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Modern works of art, American paintings, English and European furniture, Asian works of art, European ceramics and Chinese export porcelain, silver, and American decorative arts and furniture, among other categories. The Hong Kong exhibition features significant works by Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Juan Gris, Paul Signac, Edouard Manet, Paul Gauguin, Jean Baptiste Camille Corot, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Edward Hopper, among others.

Marc Porter, Christie’s Chairman, Americas, remarks: “We are delighted to share this first exhibition which is designed to re-introduce these masterpieces to the world after generations of care and stewardship by the Rockefeller family. Our decision to begin the tour in Asia is in keeping with the Rockefeller family’s long commitment and philanthropic ties to the region, dating to John D. Rockefeller, Sr.’s first charitable gift to China in 1863. We look forward to sharing additional highlights of the collection as we proceed with the tour, leading to sales in New York next spring on behalf of the selected charities.”

The spring sales series in New York includes live and online sales. The online sales, which will run concurrently with the live auctions, will offer a selection of accessibly priced objects with estimates starting at $200. Reflecting motifs that run throughout the collection, the online sales will be themed to include Dining; Birds; Bugs and Beasts; Japan; Porcelain: Figurines and Serviceware; At Home: Town; At Home: Country and Jewels.

The sales will be conducted in keeping with David Rockefeller’s pledge to direct the majority of his wealth to philanthropy and provide for the cultural, educational, medical, and environmental causes long supported by both David and Peggy Rockefeller. All the Estate proceeds will be donated to Peggy and David Rockefeller’s charities of choice, directly benefiting the philanthropic missions that have been maintained by the family for decades.

IMPRESSIONIST & MODERN ART HIGHLIGHTS

A Rose Period masterpiece, executed in 1905, Fillette à la corbeille fleurie is a highlight of the collection (estimate in the region of $70 million). Rich in pathos in its depiction of bohemian life at the turn of the 20th century, this rare work is a technical tour de force of draftsmanship and atmosphere. The painting maintains a storied provenance; it was acquired in 1905 by brother and sister, Leo and Gertrude Stein, and passed to Alice B. Toklas upon Gertrude’s death in 1946, where it remained throughout Alice’s lifetime for another 21 years. In 1968, David Rockefeller formed a group of important art collectors to acquire the renowned collection of Gertrude Stein. Drawing slips of numbered paper from a felt hat, David Rockefeller drew the first pick in the syndicate, and he and Peggy were able to acquire their first choice of the Young Girl with a Flower Basket, and placed it in the library of their 65th Street New York townhouse.

The most important work by Henri Matisse to be offered on the market in a generation is Odalisque couchée aux magnolias, painted in Nice in 1923 (estimate in the region of $50 million). The subject of the odalisque, the reclining female figure, held special significance for Matisse as it presented the opportunity to measure his art against past masters. Odalisque couchée aux magnolias, with its symphonic synthesis of pattern and form, has long been counted among the greatest of Matisse’s paintings in private hands. This sumptuous painting resided in the living room of Peggy and David’s Hudson Pines home. Odalisque couchée aux magnolias is also the highest estimated work by Matisse to ever be offered at auction.

Monet’s beloved garden of Giverny was a source of unending inspiration. Nymphéas en fleur is among the largest scale, most brilliantly colored, and vigorously worked canvases that the artist executed – a glorious tribute to the natural world (estimate in the region of $35 million). This work belongs to a group of paintings Monet painted in a burst of untrammeled creativity between 1914 and 1917, as Europe plunged into the chaos of war. Upon the recommendation of Alfred Barr, the first director of the Museum of Modern Art, Peggy and David Rockefeller visited the Parisian dealer Katia Granoff and purchased the present painting in 1956. “One, which was almost certainly painted in the late afternoon and in which the water is a dark purple and the lilies stand out a glowing white, we bought immediately,” David Rockefeller recalled in Memoirs.

ASIAN ART HIGHLIGHTS

Leading the Chinese works of art from the collection is a magnificent gilt-bronze figure of Amitayus made in the Imperial workshops by order of the Kangxi Emperor (reigned 1662-1722) (estimate: $400,000-600,000). In Chinese Buddhism, Amitayus is revered as the god of long-life, and it is likely this bronze was commissioned as a birthday gift for a member of the Imperial family. The Kangxi Emperor was a devout Buddhist, especially later in his life, and lavished patronage on Buddhist institutions. The substantial size and weight of this sculpture, and the fact that it was one of a celebrated group of such figures, means that a significant amount of material, both bronze and gold, was used in its creation.

Another important Chinese work is an Imperial blue and white ‘dragon’ bowl, Xuande six-character mark in underglaze blue within a double circle and of the period (1426-1435) (estimate: $100,000-150,000). Two exuberantly painted five-clawed dragons, symbols of Imperial authority, writhe around the sides of the bowl in pursuit of flaming pearls, while a third dragon appears within a circular medallion on the interior. Close inspection of the interior sides of the bowl reveals additional dragons rendered in a special technique known as anhua (‘hidden decoration’). Combining superb painting and well-balanced composition, the blue and white porcelains produced during the reign of the Xuande Emperor are considered amongst the finest porcelains ever produced. An almost identical bowl, but with a cloud motif on the interior rather than a dragon, resides in the National Palace Museum, Taipei.

DECORATIVE ART HIGHLIGHTS

The selection of pieces from the Sèvres porcelain ‘Marly Rouge’ dessert service made for Emperor Napoleon I of France are among the works in the collection with important provenance (estimate: $150,000-250,000). Described in the factory’s records as à fond rouge, papillons et fleurs (red ground with butterflies and flowers), this dessert service was originally ordered by Napoleon for the palace in Compiègne. However, records show its delivery on 7, 8 and 18 October 1809 to the palace of Fontainbleau. It was to Fontainbleau that Napoleon retreated for a respite after the grueling negotiations of the Treaty of Vienna, the signing of which at Schönbrunn Palace on 14 October 1809 ended hostilities between France and Austria. During this month-long stay outside Paris at his favorite country retreat, Napoleon broke the news to his empress, Josephine de Beauharnais, that he was divorcing her, as she had been unable to give him a son. Despite or perhaps because of its association with Josephine, the ‘Marly Rouge’ service, was part of the household effects Napoleon brought with him into exile on the island of Elba only five years later. Today, only one dolphin-footed compote and six plates remain at Fontainbleau, all recent acquisitions. Although plates have appeared on the art market in recent years, the portion of the service to be offered in the Rockefeller collection includes important pieces of form from the original delivery not seen on the art market since Abby Aldrich Rockefeller acquired the part-service over seventy-five years ago.

Several generations of the Rockefeller family collected Chinese export porcelain with this richly enameled decoration, which came to be known as ‘Rockefeller pattern’. Each piece in the pattern is carefully painted with a beautifully detailed and completely unique Chinese scene contained within sepia and gilt patterned borders. It was the most elaborate pattern made in the last great era of the China Trade, produced as just a few enormous dinner services for the most important China Traders of the day. John D. Rockefeller, Jr (1874-1960) and his wife Abigail Aldrich Rockefeller (1874-1948), were great lovers of Chinese porcelain and owned a large service in the pattern. Their sons Nelson and David both continued to enjoy the ‘Rockefeller’ porcelain; David and Peggy Rockefeller acquired additional pieces to add to it, and used it for large dinner parties in their Manhattan townhouse.

TMD Security’s New ATM Security Management Software Combined with Security Technology Defends against Skimming, Physical Attacks Including Explosions and Malware

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TMD Security announced today the release of its Security Management Software portfolio that includes Security Kit Monitoring, Profile Management, Access Management and ATM Fraud Detection.


Security Kit Monitoring gives an instant ‘one-look’ dashboard view of the status of the security kits on the network, with alerts via email, SMS or mobile app, ensuring that each ATM is protected and that service calls are productive, reducing costs and maximising cardholder convenience.

Security Kit Monitoring works with Gas Defence Kit’s ‘spark’ technology to safely ignite any gas the criminal inserts into the ATM , preventing an explosion, and alerts of any attacks. Note Staining Kit+ protects against explosive attacks by using ink to neutralise the value of the notes and ‘spoil the prize’. Unlike other note staining systems that are destroyed by the explosion before they have time to activate the ink, Note Staining Kit+ uses patented shockwave technology that instantly ruptures the ink canisters and stains the notes on explosive impact. Additional security features stain the notes if there are traditional physical attacks using grinders or thermal tools, and Security Kit Monitoring generates an alert.

Profile Management protects against malware and black box attacks by comparing the software and hardware on the ATM with the defined correct versions stored centrally and alerts if changes are made.

Access Management ensures that only authorised users have access to the ATM via USB or Windows and defends against malware.

ATM Fraud Detection alerts if suspicious transactions occur at the ATM by comparing pre-defined business rules with actual transactions and the ATM can either be shut down or the card can be blocked.

‘ATM crime trends, including deep insert skimming and explosive attacks, are unfortunately spreading fast in Asia Pacific,’ said Mike van der Wal, MD APAC, TMD Security. ‘We are committed to help ATM deployers be prepared and take their security defences to the next level.’

TMD Security will share insight into the latest global ATM threats and how to defend against them at ATMIA ATM & Cash Innovation Asia.
