On September 7, 2021, Analog Devices, Inc. (“the Registrant”) provided a business update for the fourth fiscal quarter ending October 30, 2021. The full text of the press release issued by the Registrant is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
On September 8, 2021, a number of the Registrant's executives hosted a conference call for financial analysts on driving shareholder value including the Registrant's capital allocation framework, which contains certain information not previously publicly disclosed. In connection with the conference call, the Registrant also issued a press release. The full text of the press release issued by the Registrant is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The information contained herein and in the accompanying exhibit shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Registrant, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing, unless expressly incorporated by specific reference to such filing. The information in this report, including the exhibit hereto, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section or Sections 11 and 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Item 8.01     Other Events.
On September 7, 2021, the Registrant announced that it has entered into certain accelerated share repurchase (“ASR”) transaction agreements (“ASR Agreements”) to repurchase an aggregate of up to $2.5 billion of the Registrant's common stock as part of the Registrant's previously announced share repurchase program. BNP Paribas Securities Corp. acted as structuring adviser to the Registrant on the ASR transactions.

Under the terms of the ASR Agreements, the Registrant will receive an aggregate initial share delivery of approximately 12.2 million shares from certain investment bank counterparties (the “Dealers”), with the remainder, if any, expected to be completed by our second fiscal quarter of 2022. The specific number of shares that the Registrant will ultimately repurchase under the ASR will be based on the terms and conditions of the ASR Agreements, including the average of Rule 10b-18 daily volume-weighted average share prices of the Registrant’s common stock on the relevant days specified for each of the Dealers during the trading periods, less a discount. At settlement of the ASR, each Dealer may be required to deliver additional shares of common stock to the Registrant, or, under certain circumstances, the Registrant may elect to make a cash payment or deliver shares of common stock to the applicable Dealer.

The full text of the press release issued by the Registrant is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
