WD and KIOXIA Merger

The two companies are expected to be closing a merger deal as early as the end of the month. The deal will leave Western Digital shareholders owning more than 50 percent of the company with Kioxia shareholders holding the remaining stakes. This deal does of course have to face up against market authorities, especially with the highly volatile nature of the global semiconductor market a the moment as the move could have quite an effect on competition.
