Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc (AMEC) said Monday it has attracted a combined US$58 million in venture capital funding from a string of domestic and offshore investors despite the ongoing global financial crisis, China Business News reported. Among the new investors were Shanghai Venture Capital and Shanghai Pudong Technology Investing. The Shanghai-based semiconductor manufacturer had previously received US$72 million in two fundraising bouts in 2004 and 2007 from Walden International, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Redpoint Ventures, SX Investing and Goldman Sachs. "It is AMEC's unique financial management and business model that appealed to us," said Walden International chairman Chen Liwu. AMEC is also strong in technology. Its chairman Yin Zhirao was in charge of Intel's anti-rust technology 24 years ago and later became a senior technical manager at US Lam Research Corporation.
