Elcoteq SE has today signed and closed an agreement to purchase Philips' flat panel TV (FTV) assembly operations in Juarez, Mexico. The acquisition and related cooperation agreements further strengthen Elcoteq's position as a leading EMS company serving strongly growing FTV industry. The deal includes a long term cooperation agreement with Philips (NYSE:PHG, AEX:PHI) to provide manufacturing services to Philips for its Latin American FTV business and its PBS (Philips Business Services) business in the Americas and a long term cooperation agreement with Funai Electric Co., Ltd (TSE/OSE: 6839) to provide manufacturing services to Funai's FTV business in North America.

The acquisition includes certain fixed assets and inventories of Philips' Juarez manufacturing operation. The total consideration to be paid by Elcoteq in cash will amount to approximately MUSD 32. The current Philips personnel in Juarez, Mexico will continue in Elcoteq's organization. The plant currently has approximately 740 employees. Elcoteq will lease the required manufacturing space of approximately 20,000 square meters. Elcoteq will take over the Juarez unit immediately.

Elcoteq expects the net sales related to the deal to be on a level of MUSD 200 in 2008 (including LCD panels) and MUSD 250 in the following years (excluding LCD panels). The deal is expected to have positive impact on the company's Home Communications Business Area profitability already in 2008.

The acquisition provides Elcoteq with world class capabilities to offer final assembly services for FTVs as well as related engineering and new product introduction (NPI), supply chain management and sourcing services.

"We have a 12-year cooperation relationship with Elcoteq and are confident it is an excellent partner when we continue streamlining our global supply chain for FTV products," commented Rob de Ridder, Senior Vice President for Philips. "Our move to transfer the Juarez operation to an experienced and leading EMS company in this field was a logical step in optimizing our supply base in the FTV business."

According to Shinji Seki, President of AV Business Unit and Executive Officer of Funai Electric Co., Ltd, "We look forward to working together with Elcoteq to secure the high quality and cost competitive product supply to our customers in the region. We believe Elcoteq is a good EMS partner based on its flexible global operations network and comprehensive service offering."

"This acquisition significantly accelerates the development of our Home Communications business and service offering. This deal marks our entrance into complete final assembly of FTVs - a strategic product segment for us where we so far have provided printed circuit board assemblies and various sub-assemblies to our customers" says Vesa Keränen, President of Elcoteq Home Communications. Jouni Hartikainen, President and CEO of Elcoteq continues: "The Juarez deal strengthens our global partnership with Philips - and Funai, a leading Japanese supplier of FTVs and other audio-visual products, is a very welcome addition to our customer portfolio. "
