  • Board authorizes process following receipt of unsolicited preliminary indications of interest
  • Company has retained Barclays to assist in the review process

ST. PETERS, Mo., Feb. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SunEdison Semiconductor Limited (NASDAQ:SEMI) ("SunEdison Semiconductor" or the “Company”) announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a process to explore a range of strategic alternatives following receipt of unsolicited preliminary indications of interest in the Company.

During its strategic review process, the Company intends to continue to vigorously pursue its existing business plan.
