Intel Corp. (NAS:INTC) is planning to publicly list shares in its Mobileye self-driving-car unit, the latest move by Chief Executive Pat Gelsinger to revive the semiconductor giant’s fortunes.
Intel said it would take the unit public in the U.S. in mid-2022 through an initial public offering of new Mobileye stock. The move, earlier reported by The Wall Street Journal, could value Mobileye at north of $50 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.
There are no guarantees Intel will ultimately follow through with an offering.
Mobileye, an Israeli company Intel acquired in 2018 for around $15 billion , specializes in chip-based camera systems that power automated driving features in cars.
