Microsemi Corporation to Acquire Symmetricom, Inc.

10-04-2014

10 abril 14.- Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, and Symmetricom, Inc., a worldwide leader in precision time and frequency technologies, announced (Oct. 21, 2013) that they have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Symmetricom, Inc. for $7.18 per share through a cash tender offer, representing a premium of 49 percent based on the average closing price of Symmetricom's shares of common stock during the 90 trading days ended Oct. 18, 2013. The board of directors of Symmetricom unanimously recommends that Symmetricom's stockholders tender their shares in the tender offer. The total transaction value is approximately $230 million, net of Symmetricom's projected cash balance at closing.

Headquartered in San Jose, Calif., Symmetricom is the world's leading source of highly precise timekeeping technologies and solutions that enable next generation data, voice, mobile and video networks and services. It provides timekeeping in GPS satellites, national time references, and national power grids as well as in critical military and civilian networks.

"The acquisition of Symmetricom will create the largest and most complete timing portfolio in the industry today", stated James J. Peterson, Microsemi president and chief executive officer. "From source to synchronization to distribution, Microsemi will offer an end to end timing solution for an expanded range of markets, driving increased dollar content opportunity and revenue growth".

"The acquisition of Symmetricom by Microsemi will create a powerful combination", said Elizabeth Fetter, Symmetricom's chief executive officer. "I believe Microsemi is the ideal company to leverage Symmetricom's technology and capabilities further into the communications market along with the scale to accelerate the adoption of the company's innovative new chip scale atomic clock (CSAC) technology into broader markets".
