Standard Microsystems shareholders OK sale
The acquisition of Hauppauge-based Standard Microsystems (SMSC) by Microchip Technology was approved by SMSC shareholders, the company announced Tuesday.
Shareholders that voted on the acquisition were largely in favor of the sale -- 99.5 percent of votes approved the move. Around 76 percent of eligible SMSC shareholders voted, according to a statement from the company.
In May, SMSC, a company that specializes in semiconductors, agreed to be purchased by Microchip Technology for $939 million in one of the largest sales of a Long Island company in recent years.
