Silicon Motion Merger
On May 5, 2022, MaxLinear entered into an agreement and plan of merger, or the Merger Agreement, with Silicon Motion Technology Corporation, or Silicon Motion, an exempted company with limited liability incorporated under the Law of the Cayman Islands, pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions thereof, MaxLinear agreed to acquire Silicon Motion pursuant to a statutory merger of Shark Merger Sub, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MaxLinear, with and into Silicon Motion, with Silicon Motion surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of MaxLinear. Silicon Motion is a provider of NAND flash controllers for solid state drives, or SSDs, and other solid state storage devices.
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, the transaction consideration will consist of $93.54 in cash and 0.388 shares of MaxLinear stock for each Silicon Motion American Depositary Share, or ADS, and $23.385 in cash and 0.097 shares of MaxLinear common stock for each Silicon Motion ordinary share not represented by an ADS. Upon closing of the transaction, the current MaxLinear stockholders will own approximately 86% of the combined company and former Silicon Motion securityholders will own approximately 14% of the combined company. Based on the closing price of MaxLinear shares on May 4, 2022, the implied value of the total transaction consideration for Silicon Motion is approximately $4.3 billion. MaxLinear may fund up to $3.5 billion of cash consideration with cash on hand and fully committed debt financing from Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., or Wells Fargo Bank, and other lenders as described below. MaxLinear will also assume Silicon Motion’s vested and unvested employee stock-based compensation awards.
The merger is not subject to any financing conditions but is pending satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval in the People’s Republic of China, or China. On June 27, 2022, the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, or HSR, waiting period expired with respect to the pending merger. On July 13, 2022, the registration statement on Form S-4 was declared effective by the SEC. On August 31, 2022, the Silicon Motion securityholders approved the merger at the extraordinary general meeting.
On June 17, 2022, MaxLinear entered into an amended and restated commitment letter with Wells Fargo Bank and other lenders pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, the lenders have committed to provide (i) a senior secured term B loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $2.7375 billion, or the Term B Loan Facility, (ii) a senior secured term A loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $512.5 million, or the Term A Loan Facility, and (iii) a senior secured revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $250.0 million, which we collectively refer to as the Senior Secured Credit Facilities. The funding of the Senior Secured Credit Facilities is contingent on the satisfaction of customary conditions, including (i) the execution and delivery of definitive documentation with respect to credit facilities in accordance with the terms in the amended and restated commitment letter, and (ii) the consummation of the acquisition by MaxLinear of Silicon Motion in accordance with the Merger Agreement. A portion of the proceeds from the Senior Secured Credit Facilities will be used to repay existing debt (Note 8) in full.
On October 24, 2022, MaxLinear entered into a second amended and restated commitment letter with Wells Fargo Bank and other lenders, which allows for additional commitments in respect of the Term A Loan Facility to be effected by way of the joinder of additional commitment parties to the second amended and restated commitment letter, and allows for an increase in the Term Loan A Loan Facility on a dollar-for-dollar basis by a corresponding decrease in the amount of the Term Loan B facility.
Acquisition of Company X
On December 8, 2021, the Company completed its acquisition of a business, or Company X, pursuant to a Purchase and Sale Agreement, or the Purchase Agreement to acquire Company X. The initial closing transaction consideration consisted of $5.0 million in cash. In addition, their stockholders may receive up to an additional $3.0 million in potential contingent consideration, subject to the acquired business satisfying certain financial and personnel objectives by March 31, 2023. The Company has integrated Company X into the Company’s existing business and has completed its purchase price allocation accounting associated with this acquisition, with an immaterial decrease to net operating assets and a corresponding increase in goodwill recorded in 2022 (Note 5).
