RFMD & TriQuint's HSR Act waiting period expires
18
Jun '14
RF Micro Devices, Inc. and TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. announced that the applicable waiting period under the U.S. Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the "HSR Act"), in relation to the previously announced business combination between RFMD and TriQuint, expired as of 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 13, 2014, with no action by the Federal Trade Commission or the Department of Justice.
 
On February 24, 2014, RFMD and TriQuint announced that they had entered into a definitive merger agreement under which the companies will combine under a new holding company in an all-stock, merger-of-equals transaction. Upon completion of the transaction, RFMD shareholders will receive 0.2500 of a share of common stock of the new holding company for each share of RFMD common stock, and TriQuint shareholders will receive 0.4187 of a share of common stock of the new holding company for each share of TriQuint common stock.
 
The companies anticipate that RFMD shareholders, on the one hand, and TriQuint shareholders, on the other hand, will each hold approximately 50% of the shares of common stock of the new holding company issued and outstanding immediately after completion of the transaction.
 
Completion of the HSR Act waiting period satisfies one of the conditions required to finalize the transaction. The business combination is still subject to approval by both TriQuint's and RFMD's shareholders, other required regulatory approvals, and customary closing conditions.
