Back in February 2022 Intel announced plans to acquire Tower Semiconductor. However, one and a half years later the deal is now being called off due to failure to obtain regulatory approval.

Intel planned to acquire Tower Semiconductor for $5.4 billion but after months of waiting on Chinese regulatory approval and no action, the two companies mutually decided to call off the acquisition. Intel will now pay Tower a $353 million USD termination fee.

Intel wanted to acquire the Israeli based company for broadening its Intel Foundry Services (IFS) expertise into the fabricating specialty technologies.
