Hot Picks of the Week Nov. 14-18

Latest developments in Germany this week are making a Chinese investor takeover of Osram, and the outlook of the approval of IDG Capital consortium’s acquisition of LEDVANCE appear rather dim. Germany’s biggest labor union has become one of the latest advocates against a Chinese merger of Osram, as it seeks to keep factory jobs and others in the country.

Chinese experts pitch in on whether micro-LEDs can eventually replace LCDs and OLED technology, which could take several years to achieve. European research institute EPIC signed a MOU with China Solid State Lighting Alliance (CSA).

Taiwanese LED chip maker GPI denied market rumors that it is financially struggling, offering its transforming business model has helped it turn around losses.
