Delay creates distrust among tech giants Sharp-Foxconn deal: Delay creates distrust among tech giants A late hitch to Foxconn's takeover of Japan's struggling Sharp Corp brought simmering distrust between the two close to boiling point, people with direct knowledge of the matter said.
Mar 1, A late hitch to Foxconn's takeover of Japan's struggling Sharp Corp brought simmering distrust between the two close to boiling point, people with direct knowledge of the matter said. The two companies have eyed each other warily since Foxconn founder and billionaire Terry Gou pulled out of a planned capital tie-up and strategic partnership with Sharp in Missteps in communication last week, when Sharp's board met and announced a decision to sell a two-thirds stake to the Taiwanese group, ratcheted up tensions, upsetting Gou and causing embarrassment at Sharp.
On the eve of that board meeting, Foxconn had asked Sharp to delay voting on a deal as it had just received "new material information" from Sharp that it hadn't seen before and needed to clarify. It said it hopes for a "satisfactory agreement". The list was pulled together by working level officials at Sharp and forwarded, without top officials seeing it, to Foxconn as a goodwill gesture to make the buyer aware of worst-case scenario risks, sources said.
They were not liabilities that required formal disclosure. It didn't go down well on the Taiwan side.
Another person said Gou shouted at his team for not having discovered these liabilities in the first place. By late Friday, the mood had calmed and the two companies' CEOs met in China to clear the air, sources said.
Sharp would have a much-needed financial lifeline, while Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Cowould get control of technology it needs to strengthen its hand with major client Apple Inc.
Running deep The hitch revives lingering ill-will from four years ago, when Foxconn agreed to take a stake in Sharp at yen a share as part of a broader partnership.
Then, Sharp warned of losses, and Foxconn walked away. A turning point in the latest deal came when Gou wowed Sharp's board, independent directors and creditors with his presentation of a takeover plan on Jan.
I've seen him use his magic," said a person familiar with how Gou operates. Another person familiar with Gou said: INCJ had been seen as strong favourite to take over Sharp and keep Japan's insular tech industry out of foreign hands.
The next day, Gou flew his team to Sharp's Osaka headquarters and emerged triumphantly waving a document, proclaiming Sharp had granted Foxconn preferred negotiation rights. Sharp officials said the document actually referred to Foxconn's extension of a takeover offer for Sharp.
