LSI (LSI[1]) is about to be sold to Avago Technologies (AVGO[2]) for a whopping $6.6 billion in cash.

lsi-stock-priceThe LSI stock price has skyrocketed since the announcement with shares up 38.69% as of early Monday afternoon. Avago is financing the deal with help from Silver Lake[3] (SVLFK[4]), which used to own the semiconductor company and has a seat on the company’s board despite selling the last of its holdings in 2012.

LSI — which develops storage and network semiconductors — will help Avago grow financially with analysts projecting $200 million in annual cost savings beginning in the first full year after closing.

Avago will pay $11.15 a share for LSI stock. That is slightly higher than the current $10.97 LSI stock price. The semiconductor company has several high-profile clients including Samsung (SSNLF[5]) Cisco (CSCO[6]) and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ[7]).
