     Of those, some 286 million are primary shares, while around 286 million are secondary shares held by STS Semiconductor, which owns 99% of the company.

     "The net proceeds that will be generated from the offer will be used primarily for the acquisition of new machineries, equipment and other capital expenditures of the company," the prospectus said.
