Item 1.01. Amendment of a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 9, 2017, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (“Lattice”), Canyon Bridge Acquisition Company, Inc. (“Canyon Bridge”), and Canyon Bridge Merger Sub, Inc. entered into an amendment to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of November 3, 2016 (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which the parties agreed to withdraw and re-file their joint voluntary notice to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) under the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended, to allow more time for review and discussion with CFIUS in connection with the proposed merger (the “Merger’) between Lattice and Canyon Bridge Merger Sub, Inc., and agreed to extend the outside date after which the Merger Agreement may be terminated by either Lattice of Canyon Bridge if the Merger has not become effective to September 30, 2017, subject to adjustment as described in the Merger Agreement. The above summary of the amendment to the Merger Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the amendment, which is attached to this Report as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference.

Item 8.01 Other Events

Lattice and Canyon Bridge Fund I, LP jointly withdrew and then re-filed their joint voluntary notice to CFIUS under the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended. Once CFIUS accepts the joint voluntary notice, it will commence a new 30-day period, which may be followed by a 45-day investigation period.

Lattice and Canyon Bridge have been and will continue to be actively engaged with CFIUS, and remain fully committed to the Merger, which was approved by the holders of approximately 99.65% of the Lattice shares voted on February 28, 2017. There can be no assurances, however, that CFIUS will ultimately agree that the parties may proceed with the transaction, and, if CFIUS ultimately makes a recommendation to prohibit or suspend the transaction, as to whether the President will decide to prohibit or suspend the transaction.
