Several firms are expected to benefit, including Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ:BRCM), which could get $6.50 per iPhone; Qualcomm Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM), which Freedman says should receive $18 per shipment; and SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK), which should receive $9.50 per iPhone, assuming that its NAND flash chips are used in the device.
Digital Domain Media Group (NYSE:DDMG) has filed for bankruptcy protection following its default last week on debt repayments of $35 million in senior notes, along with the resignation of its Chairman and Chief Executive John Textor. The firm now has a total debt of $214 million, with assets at $205 million. Digital agrees to divest its main operating division, Digital Domain Productions, to the private equity firm Searchlight for $15 million, although the deal is subject to other bids. In the meantime, senior noteholders, led by Hudson Bay, will allow the company up to $20 million in debtor-in-possession financing.
