Should Micron (MU -3.9%) succeed in acquiring Elpida, as is rumored, the DRAM industry will have largely consolidated around 3 vendors: Samsung (SSNLF.PK - 44% share), Micron (23% share), and Hynix (HXSCF.PK - also 23%). Sterne Agee thinks the Street is worried about the deal's price and Micron's financing needs. However, the firm values Elpida's assets at $7B+, far above Micron's reported $2.5B+ offer.
