Representations and Warranties; Covenants

The Merger Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants of the parties customary for a transaction of this type.

Termination Fees

The Merger Agreement provides Parent and the Company with certain termination rights and, under certain circumstances, may require Parent or the Company to pay a termination fee.

The Merger Agreement provides that the Company will be required to pay to Parent a termination fee of $180 million if, among other things, the Merger Agreement is terminated:

 

    by Parent or the Company (i) because (A) the Company failed to obtain the necessary stockholder vote to approve the Merger or (B) the Merger has not been consummated on or prior to 11:59 p.m. (New York City time) on September 19, 2018 (or, if so extended by either party in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, November 19, 2018) (the “Outside Date”) and (ii)(A) at or prior to termination, a third-party offer or proposal to acquire the Company has been made and (B) within 12 months after the date of such termination, the Company has consummated a transaction with a third party or has entered into a definitive agreement with a third party contemplating a transaction that is subsequently consummated (regardless of whether such consummation occurs within the 12-month period), in each case relating to an acquisition of the Company,

 

    by Parent or the Company (other than for inaccuracy of Parent’s representations and warranties or a breach of Parent’s covenants) at any time during the period commencing on the occurrence of a Company Triggering Event (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and ending on the tenth day after the final vote by the Company’s stockholders on a proposal to adopt the Merger Agreement, or

 

    by the Company in order to accept a Company Superior Offer (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and enter into a definitive agreement providing for consummation of the transaction contemplated by such Company Superior Offer.

The Merger Agreement provides that Parent will be required to pay to the Company a termination fee of $180 million if, among other things, the Merger Agreement is terminated:

 

    by Parent or the Company (i) because (A) Parent failed to obtain the necessary shareholder vote to approve the Parent Share Issuance or (B) the Merger has not been consummated on or prior to the Outside Date and (ii)(A) at or prior to termination, a third-party offer or proposal to acquire Parent has been made and (B) within 12 months after the date of such termination, Parent has consummated a transaction with a third party or has entered into a definitive agreement with a third party contemplating a transaction that is subsequently consummated (regardless of whether such consummation occurs within the 12-month period), in each case relating to an acquisition of Parent,

 

    by Parent or the Company (other than for inaccuracy of the Company’s representations and warranties or a breach of the Company’s covenants) at any time during the period commencing on the occurrence of a Parent Triggering Event (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and ending on the tenth day after the final vote by Parent’s shareholders to approve the Parent Share Issuance, or

 

    by Parent in order to accept a Parent Superior Offer (as defined in the Merger Agreement) and enter into a definitive agreement providing for consummation of the transaction contemplated by such Parent Superior Offer.

The Merger Agreement also provides that Parent will be required to pay to the Company a termination fee of $180 million if:


    the Merger Agreement is terminated due to a Final CFIUS Turndown (as defined in the Merger Agreement) or on account of a knowing and intentional breach by Parent of its obligations with respect to obtaining CFIUS approval and (B) all of Parent’s closing conditions (other than closing conditions with respect to the effectiveness of the registration statement on Form S-4, shareholder approvals, delivery of an officers’ certificate, the receipt of approval of CFIUS and MOFCOM with respect to the transaction and the listing of Parent Shares to be issued in connection with the Merger) have been satisfied as of the time of termination, or

 

    the Merger has not been consummated on or prior to the Outside Date and all of Parent’s closing conditions (other than closing conditions with respect to delivery of an officers’ certificate, the receipt of approval of CFIUS and MOFCOM with respect to the transaction and the listing of Parent Shares to be issued in connection with the Merger) have been satisfied as of the time of termination (the termination fee described in this paragraph being referred to as the “CFIUS Termination Fee”).

Additionally, Parent will be required to pay to the Company a termination fee of $50 million if:

 

    the Merger Agreement is terminated on account of a knowing and intentional breach by Parent of its obligations with respect to obtaining MOFCOM approval and all of Parent’s closing conditions (other than closing conditions with respect to the effectiveness of the registration statement on Form S-4, shareholder approvals, delivery of an officers’ certificate, the receipt of approval of CFIUS and MOFCOM with respect to the transaction and the listing of Parent Shares to be issued in connection with the Merger) have been satisfied as of the time of termination of the Merger Agreement, or

 

    the Merger has not been consummated on or prior to the Outside Date and all of Parent’s closing conditions (other than closing conditions with respect to delivery of an officers’ certificate, the receipt of approval of CFIUS and MOFCOM with respect to the transaction and the listing of Parent Shares to be issued in connection with the Merger) have been satisfied as of the time of termination (the termination fee described in this paragraph being referred to as the “MOFCOM Termination Fee”).

Under circumstances where both the MOFCOM Termination Fee and the CFIUS Termination Fee would be payable, Parent will be required to pay only the MOFCOM Termination Fee.

Post-Closing Governance

The Merger Agreement provides that Syed B. Ali, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, and two other members of the board of directors of the Company designated by Parent will become members of the board of directors of Parent at the effective time of the Merger.

Treatment of Equity Awards

At the Effective Time:

 

    each outstanding vested and unvested Company stock option (“Company Option”) to purchase Company Shares, other than Director Options (described below), will be assumed and converted into an option to purchase Parent Shares (a “Converted Option”), with the number of Parent Shares applicable to such Converted Option equal to the product of (i) the number of shares of Company Shares subject to such Company Option, multiplied by (ii) a conversion ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement, at an adjusted exercise price per Parent Share as set forth in the Merger Agreement,

 

    each outstanding and vested Company Option held by a non-employee member of the Company’s board of directors who will not serve on Parent’s board of directors following the effective time of the Merger (a “Director Option”), including those Director Options that become vested by their terms immediately prior to or as of the effective time of the Merger, will be canceled and the holder will be entitled to receive a per option amount in cash based on an exchange ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement, reduced by the exercise price applicable to each Director Option, and multiplied by the number of Company Shares subject to such Director Option,


    each outstanding and unvested Company restricted stock unit (“Company RSU”), except as set forth in the next following paragraph, will be converted into a Parent restricted stock unit (“ Converted RSU”), with the number of Parent Shares subject to the Converted RSU equal to the product of (i) the number of Company Shares subject to such Company RSU, multiplied by (ii) a conversion ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement,

 

    each outstanding and vested Company RSU, and each outstanding Company RSU held by a non-employee member of the Company’s board of directors immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, whether vested or unvested, will be cancelled and extinguished in exchange for the payment applicable to such cancelled Company RSUs comprised of an amount in cash, and a number of Parent Shares based on an exchange ratio, as set forth in the Merger Agreement, and

 

    each outstanding and unvested Company performance-based restricted stock unit (“Company PRSU”) will be assumed and converted into a Parent performance restricted stock unit (“Converted PRSU”) with the vesting schedule applicable to such Converted PRSUs based on the vesting date set forth in the award agreement applicable to such Company PRSUs prior to the effective time of the Merger, subject only to the continued service of the grantee with the Company, Parent or any of their respective affiliates through the applicable vesting date and with the number of Parent Shares subject to the Converted PRSUs equal to the product obtained by multiplying: (i) the target number of Company Shares subject to such Company PRSU by (ii) a conversion ratio set forth in the Merger Agreement.

Financing

The transaction is expected to be financed by Marvell with a combination of cash on hand and $1.75 billion in new debt financing. Each of Goldman Sachs Bank USA and Bank of America Merrill Lynch (collectively, the “Lenders”) have committed to provide Marvell with debt financing for the transaction, consisting of an $850 million bridge loan commitment and a $900 million committed term loan, in each case, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in a commitment letter, dated November 19, 2017 (the “Debt Commitment Letter”). The obligation of the Lenders to provide debt financing under the Debt Commitment Letter is subject to a number of customary conditions, including, without limitation, execution and delivery by the borrowers and the guarantors of definitive documentation consistent with the Debt Commitment Letter. Marvell intends to use the debt financing proceeds to fund a portion of the consideration for the Merger, to refinance certain existing debt, and to pay transaction expenses. There is no financing condition in the Merger Agreement. The Merger Agreement requires a marketing period of ten consecutive business days after all conditions to the Merger (other than conditions that are to be satisfied at closing) have been satisfied before the closing.
