Calling it a "tremendous blow" to U.S. competitiveness, high-technology research consortium Sematech has launched a campaign to block the sale of a small semiconductor equipment company to a Japanese firm. Sematech officials said they would ask federal regulators to reject the sale of Semi-Gas Systems Inc. of San Jose to Nippon-Sanso of Tokyo. The deal must face U.S. government approval on antitrust and national security grounds.

The Justice Department said Friday that it will sue to block the purchase of a major American semiconductor supply firm by a Japanese company, despite President Bush's previous decision to allow the acquisition on grounds that it did not threaten national security. Assistant Atty. Gen. James F. Rill said the planned takeover of Semi-Gas Systems of San Jose by Nippon Sanso K.K. of Tokyo would eliminate "substantial direct competition" between the two firms and "would harm consumers nationwide."

The proposed sale of Semi-Gas Systems of San Jose, a key supplier for U.S. semiconductor makers, to a Japanese competitor may be blocked despite a federal agency's recommendation that the transaction be allowed, opponents of the sale said Thursday. "I don't think it's a dead issue yet, and maybe there are a few reasons to be optimistic," said one executive of Semi-Gas, which makes gas delivery systems that are a critical part of the computer chip-making process.

President Bush has decided not to block a Japanese firm's planned purchase of a major American semiconductor supply firm, the White House announced Friday. Bush's approval of the sale of Semi-Gas Systems of San Jose to Nippon Sanso of Tokyo came despite objections from several Democratic lawmakers and Sematech, the government-supported microchip technology venture. They argued that it would hand over an important high-tech venture to a Japanese competitor.

Andrew K. Lorenz is retiring this week, a concession not so much to the years--he's only 53--as to the energies used up in starting, building and selling three companies in Silicon Valley. For the past two years, Lorenz has been running Semi-Gas Systems in San Jose for its current owner and anticipating his halcyon days. "I planned to take what's left, take my wife and go sailing," Lorenz said last week, as his ties to the company that he founded were coming to an end.
