Chipmaker formerly owned by IBM and Infineon receives 50m euros
French chipmaker Altis has received around 50m euros ($65.7m) in investment from French and Qatari sovereign funds, the newspaper La Tribune reported on Friday.
Altis — formerly owned by IBM and Infineon — was bought in August by French government official Yazid Sabeg, who also owns a small-cap IT consultancy called CS Communication.
According to La Tribune, the FSI has invested 20m euros while the Qatari Diar sovereign real estate fund has invested around 30m.
A spokesman for the FSI was unavailable for comment. The fund was designed to support small companies deemed strategically important to France.
