What?

Western Digital (NASDAQ:WDC) is reportedly in advanced talks to merge with Kioxia, a Japan-based NAND flash-memory producer. The deal could be valued at around $20 billion, per a report from Reuters.

Why?

NAND is a commodity business, and greater scale is valuable from the standpoint of pricing power and cost management. That said, it remains to be seen if a potential deal will be approved by regulators.

So What?

Investors appear to like the prospects of a merger. Western Digital stock was up almost 8% in Wednesday’s trading.
