Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Merger Agreement

On January 19, 2016, Microchip Technology Incorporated, a Delaware corporation (“Microchip”), Atmel Corporation, a

Delaware corporation (“Atmel”), and Hero Acquisition Corporation, a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of

Microchip (“Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), for the acquisition of Atmel by

Microchip (the “Merger”).

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, at the effective time of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of common stock of Atmel (“Atmel Common Stock”), other than any shares of Atmel

Common Stock owned by Microchip held in the treasury of Atmel, or held by subsidiaries of Microchip or Atmel, will be converted into the right to receive (i) $7.00 in cash and (ii) an amount of shares of Microchip common stock (“Microchip Common Stock”) with

$1.15 in value (valued at the average closing price for a share of Microchip common stock for the ten most recent trading days ending on the last trading day prior to the closing), subject to the conditions and restrictions set forth in the Merger Agreement. To the extent that the number of shares of Microchip Common Stock issuable would exceed 13.0 million, the cash consideration per Atmel share will be increased such that the value of the combined cash and stock consideration will remain at $8.15 per share (based upon the average price described in the previous sentence).

The Board of Directors of each of Microchip and Atmel have approved the Merger and the Merger Agreement. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including but not limited to the absence of certain legal impediments, the expiration or termination of the required waiting periods under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, the receipt of antitrust regulatory approvals in Germany and South Korea, the effectiveness of a registration statement on Form S-4 registering the shares of Microchip Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Merger, and approval by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Atmel Common Stock. The transaction is not subject to any financing condition.

The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of Microchip, Atmel, and Merger Sub, including among others, (i) covenants by Atmel concerning the conduct of its business in the ordinary course consistent in all material respects with past practice during the interim period between the execution of the Merger Agreement and the consummation of the

Merger, (ii) a covenant by Atmel that, subject to certain exceptions, the Board of Directors of Atmel will recommend to its stockholders adoption of the Merger Agreement, and (iii) a covenant that Atmel will not initiate, solicit, or knowingly encourage the making of proposal or offer that constitutes, or would reasonably be expected to result in, any Company Acquisition Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement). The Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for both Microchip and Atmel and further provides that upon termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, either Atmel or Microchip may be required to pay the other party a termination fee.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1. We encourage you to read the Merger Agreement for a more complete understanding of the transaction. The Merger Agreement has been attached as an exhibit to this report to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any factual information about Microchip,

Atmel or Merger Sub.

A. The respective Boards of Directors of the Company, Parent and Merger Sub have determined that the transactions described herein are in the best interests of their respective companies and stockholders and, accordingly, the Board of Directors of the

Company and Parent have agreed to effect the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company (the “Merger”), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement and in accordance with the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware

(the “DGCL”), whereby each issued and outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (“Company

Common Stock”), other than any shares of Company Common Stock owned by Parent or any direct or indirect subsidiary of Parent or held in the treasury of the Company, will be converted into the right to receive (i) $7.00 in cash and (ii) an amount of shares of Parent

Common Stock (the “Parent Shares”) with $1.15 in value, subject to Section 2.1.

B. The Board of Directors of the Company (the “Company Board”) has determined that the Merger is advisable and fair to the

Company and its stockholders (the “Company Stockholders”).

C. The Board of Directors of Parent (the “Parent Board”) has determined that the Merger is advisable and fair to Parent and its stockholders (the “Parent Stockholders”).

D. Concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Company, (a) the Company is terminating that certain

Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of September 19, 2015, by and among Dialog Semiconductor plc, Avengers Acquisition

Corporation and the Company (as amended, the “Dialog Merger Agreement”) in accordance with its terms and (b) the Company is paying to Dialog Semiconductor plc, pursuant to Section 7.5(b)(i) of the Dialog Merger Agreement, the termination fee of

NOW, THEREFORE, Company, Parent and Merger Sub, in consideration of the representations, warranties and covenants contained in this Agreement, agree as follows:

ARTICLE I

THE MERGER

1.1 The Merger. On the terms and subject to the satisfaction or, if permitted, waiver of the conditions set forth herein, and in accordance with the DGCL, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company at the Effective Time, and the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub will thereupon cease. Following the Effective Time, the Company will be the surviving company (the

“Surviving Company”).

1

1.2 Closing.

(a) Except as set forth in Section 1.2(b), the closing of the Merger (the “Closing”) will take place at the offices of Jones

Day, 1755 Embarcadero Road, Palo Alto, California, at 8:00 a.m. (California time), no later than the second Business Day following the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Article VI (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to the satisfaction or waiver of those conditions), or at such other place, date and time as the Company and

Parent may agree in writing. The earliest date on which the conditions specified in Sections 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3(d) have been satisfied

(other than the condition specified in Section 6.2(b) insofar as such condition relates to the Company’s compliance with Section 5.4

(e)(ii)) is the “Satisfaction Date.” The date on which the Closing actually takes place, as may be extended by Section 1.2(b), is referred to as the “Closing Date.”

(b) Notwithstanding Section 1.2(a) and any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if by operation of

Section 1.2(a) the Closing Date would occur within the last 15 days of a calendar quarter (the “Deferral Quarter”), then Parent may elect in its sole discretion (no more than a single time), by written notice to the Company (the “Deferral Notice”), to defer the Closing to the first Business Day occurring immediately after the end of the Deferral Quarter. In the event of the delivery of a Deferral Notice or a Cooperation Request, the conditions set forth in Sections 6.2(a), 6.2(c) (insofar as such condition relates to Section 6.2(a)) and

6.2(d) shall be deemed to be fully satisfied from and after the Satisfaction Date through and including the Closing (if such conditions were satisfied at the Satisfaction Date), without regard to any change in circumstances or other events that may occur after the

Satisfaction Date, and Parent shall be deemed to have irrevocably waived as of the Satisfaction Date all rights to assert such conditions.

1.3 Effective Time. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, (i) as soon as practicable on the

Closing Date, the parties shall file a certificate of merger (the “Certificate of Merger”) in such form as is required by, and executed in accordance with, the relevant provisions of the DGCL and the terms of this Agreement and (ii) as soon as practicable on or after the

Closing Date, the parties shall make all other filings or recordings required under the DGCL. The Merger will become effective at such time as the Certificate of Merger is duly filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on the Closing Date, or at such subsequent date or time as the Company, Parent and Merger Sub agree and specify in the Certificate of Merger (the date and time the

Merger becomes effective is hereinafter referred to as the “Effective Time”).

1.4 Effects of the Merger. The Merger will have the effects set forth in the DGCL. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the Effective Time, all the property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of the Company and

Merger Sub will be vested in the Surviving Company, and all debts, liabilities and duties of the Company and Merger Sub will become the debts, liabilities and duties of the Surviving Company all as provided in the DGCL.

1.5 Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws. At the Effective Time, the Company Charter in effect immediately prior to the

Effective Time shall be amended so as to read in its entirety as set forth on Exhibit A and, as so amended, shall be from and after the

Effective Time the certificate of incorporation of the Surviving Company until amended in accordance with applicable Law. At the

Effective Time, the bylaws of Merger Sub as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the bylaws of the Surviving

Company from and after the Effective Time, until amended in accordance with applicable Law. For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of the Company Charter and Company Bylaws and any Contracts between a director, officer or employee of the Company and the Company in effect as of immediately prior to the Closing will govern the rights of all directors, officers and employees of the

Company (including, without limitation, persons who were, at any time, directors, officers and employees

2

of the Company prior to Closing), as applicable, and the obligations of the Company and the Surviving Company, in respect of claims for indemnification based in whole or in part on actions or failures to take action at or prior to the Closing, and neither the amendments thereto contemplated hereby or any amendments or modifications, if any, effected following the Closing will affect, in any manner, the rights of any directors, officers and employees, or the obligations of the Company, including the Surviving

Company, thereunder relating to such actions or failures to take action.

1.6 Directors and Officers of the Surviving Company. From and after the Effective Time, until successors are duly elected or appointed and qualified in accordance with applicable Law, (i) the directors of Merger Sub at the Effective Time shall be the directors of the Surviving Company and (ii) the officers of Merger Sub at the Effective Time shall be the officers of the Surviving Company.

ARTICLE II

EFFECT OF THE MERGER ON THE CAPITAL STOCK OF THE COMPANY; EXCHANGE

OF CERTIFICATES AND PAYMENT

2.1 Effect on Capital Stock. At the Effective Time, as a result of the Merger and without any action on the part of the holder of any securities of the Company, Parent or Merger Sub:

(a) Merger Sub’s Capital Stock. Each share of common stock of Merger Sub outstanding immediately prior to the Effective

Time shall be converted into and become one share of common stock of the Surviving Company with the same rights, powers and privileges as the shares so converted and shall constitute the only outstanding shares of capital stock of the Surviving Company, subject to Section 2.1(b).

(b) Cancellation of Treasury Stock and Parent Owned Stock and Conversion of Subsidiary Owned Stock. (i) Each share of

Company Common Stock that is owned by Parent immediately prior to the Effective Time and any Company Common Stock held in the treasury of the Company immediately prior to the Effective Time will automatically be canceled and retired and will cease to exist, and no consideration will be delivered in exchange therefor and (ii) each share of Company Common Stock held by any

Subsidiary of either the Company or Parent immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into such number of shares of common stock of the Surviving Company such that each such Subsidiary owns the same percentage of the outstanding capital stock of the Surviving Company immediately following the Effective Time as such Subsidiary owned in the Company immediately prior to the Effective Time.

(c) Conversion of Company Common Stock. Subject to Section 2.2(b) and Section 2.2(e), each issued and outstanding share of Company Common Stock, other than shares of Company Common Stock to be canceled or converted in accordance with

Section 2.1(b) and Dissenting Shares to be treated in accordance with Section 2.4, will be converted into the right to receive:

(i) $7.00 in cash without interest (the “Cash Consideration”);

(ii) a fraction of a Parent Share (the “Stock Consideration”) equal to the lesser of (A) the quotient of (x) $1.15,

divided by (y) the Average Parent Closing Price (the “Implied Exchange Ratio”) and (B) the quotient of 13,000,000 divided by the aggregate number of shares of Company Common Stock (other than shares of Company Common Stock to be canceled or converted in accordance with Section 2.1(b)) outstanding as of the Effective Time (the “Maximum Exchange Ratio”, and such fraction as determined under this Section 2.1(c)(ii), the “Exchange Ratio”); and

(iii) in the event that the Implied Exchange Ratio exceeds the Maximum Exchange Ratio, an amount of cash equal to (A) the Implied Exchange Ratio minus the Maximum Exchange Ratio, multiplied by (B) the Average Parent Closing Price (the

“Supplemental Cash Consideration”).

3

(d) Cancellation of Shares of Company Common Stock. As of the Effective Time, all shares of Company Common Stock shall no longer be outstanding and will automatically be canceled and retired and shall cease to exist, and each holder of a certificate formerly representing any shares of Company Common Stock (a “Company Certificate”) or shares of Company Common Stock represented by book-entry (“Book-Entry Shares”) shall cease to have any rights with respect thereto, except the right to receive the

Merger Consideration, certain dividends or other distributions, if any, upon surrender or transfer of such Company Certificate or

Book-Entry Shares, in each case, in accordance with this Article II, without interest.

2.2 Exchange of Certificates.

(a) Exchange Agent. Prior to the Closing Date, Parent will designate a U.S. bank or trust company reasonably acceptable to the Company to act as agent of Parent for purposes of, among other things, mailing and receiving transmittal letters, and distributing the Merger Consideration to the Company Stockholders (the “Exchange Agent”). At or substantially concurrently with the Effective

Time, Parent shall deposit, or cause to be deposited, with the Exchange Agent for the benefit of the holders of shares of Company

Common Stock, for payment and exchange in accordance with this Article II through the Exchange Agent, (i) a number of Parent

Shares equal to the aggregate number of Parent Shares to be issued as Merger Consideration, and (ii) immediately available funds sufficient to pay the aggregate Cash Consideration, Supplemental Cash Consideration, and any cash payable in lieu of any fractional

Parent Shares, in each case to be held by the Exchange Agent in trust for the benefit of the holders of the Company Common Stock

(such Parent Shares, funds and any dividends or other distributions payable in accordance with Section 2.2(c) being hereinafter referred to as the “Exchange Fund”). No later than 10 Business Days prior to the Closing Date, Parent shall enter into an agreement with the Exchange Agent, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company, to effect the applicable terms of this

Agreement.

(b) Exchange Procedures.

(i) Promptly, and in any event within 10 Business Days, after the Effective Time, Parent shall cause the Exchange

Agent to mail to each holder of record of a Company Certificate or Book-Entry Share whose shares of Company Common Stock were converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration (A) a letter of transmittal (which will specify that delivery will be effected, and risk of loss and title to the Company Certificates will pass, only upon proper delivery of the Company Certificates to the

Exchange Agent or, in the case of Book-Entry Shares, upon adherence to the procedures set forth in the letter of transmittal, and such letter of transmittal will be in customary form and have such other provisions as Parent may reasonably specify consistent with this

Agreement) and (B) instructions for use in effecting the surrender of the Company Certificates or, in the case of Book-Entry Shares, the transfer of such Book-Entry Shares in exchange for the Merger Consideration.

(ii) After the Effective Time, and reasonably promptly following surrender or transfer in accordance with this

Article II of a Company Certificate or Book-Entry Shares for cancellation to the Exchange Agent, together with a letter of transmittal, duly executed, and such other documents as may reasonably be required by the Exchange Agent, the holder of such Company

Certificate or Book-Entry Shares will be entitled to receive in exchange therefor the Merger Consideration in the form of (A) the number of whole Parent Shares that such holder has the right to

4

receive pursuant to the provisions of this Article II, after taking into account all the shares of Company Common Stock then held by such holder under all such Book-Entry Shares or Company Certificates so surrendered or transferred, and (B) a check or wire for the full amount of cash that such holder has the right to receive pursuant to the provisions of this Article II, including the Cash

Consideration, Supplemental Cash Consideration, cash in lieu of fractional Parent Shares, and certain dividends or other distributions, if any, in accordance with Section 2.2(c), in each case less any required withholding of Taxes, and the Company Certificate or Book-

Entry Shares so surrendered or transferred will forthwith be canceled, and Parent’s stock transfer books shall be updated accordingly.

The Parent Shares shall be accepted into The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) and issued in uncertificated book-entry form to such account as shall be specified in the completed letter of transmittal. If payment of the Merger Consideration (along with any cash in lieu of fractional Parent Shares as provided in Section 2.2(e) and any unpaid dividends and other distributions with respect to such

Parent Shares as provided in Section 2.2(c)) is to be made to a person other than the person in whose name the surrendered Company

Certificate or Book-Entry Shares so transferred is registered on the stock transfer books of the Company or the systems of DTC, as the case may be, it will be a condition of payment that (1) the Company Certificate so surrendered or the Book-Entry Shares so transferred will be endorsed properly or otherwise be in proper form for transfer, and (2) the person requesting such payment (x) will have paid all transfer and other Taxes required by reason of the payment of the Merger Consideration to a person other than the registered holder of the Company Certificate surrendered or Book-Entry Shares so transferred or (y) will have established to the satisfaction of the Surviving Company and the Exchange Agent that such Taxes either have been paid or are not applicable. Until surrendered or transferred as contemplated by this Section 2.2(b), each Company Certificate and each Book-Entry Share will be deemed at any time after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon such surrender or transfer the Merger

Consideration that the holder thereof has the right to receive in respect of such Company Certificate pursuant to the provisions of this

Article II and certain dividends or other distributions, if any, in accordance with Section 2.2(c). No interest will be paid or will accrue on any Merger Consideration or unpaid dividends and other distributions, if any, payable to holders of Company Certificates or

Book-Entry Shares pursuant to the provisions of this Article II.

(c) Dividends; Other Distributions. No dividends or other distributions with respect to Parent Shares with a record date after the Effective Time will be paid to the holder of any Company Certificate or Book-Entry Shares that have not been surrendered or transferred with respect to the Parent Shares represented thereby and no cash payment in lieu of fractional Parent Shares will be paid to any such holder pursuant to Section 2.2(e), and all such dividends, other distributions and cash in lieu of fractional Parent

Shares will be paid by Parent to the Exchange Agent and will be included in the Exchange Fund, in each case until the surrender or transfer of such Company Certificate or Book-Entry Share in accordance with this Article II. Subject to the effect of applicable escheat or similar Laws, following surrender or transfer of any such Company Certificate or Book-Entry Share in accordance herewith, (A) there will be paid to the holder of whole Parent Shares issued in exchange therefor, without interest, in addition to all other amounts to which such holder is entitled under this Article II, (i) at the time of such surrender or transfer, the amount of dividends or other distributions with a record date after the Effective Time theretofore paid with respect to such whole Parent Shares and the amount of any cash payable in lieu of a fractional Parent Share to which such holder is entitled pursuant to Section 2.2(e) and

(ii) at the appropriate payment date, the amount of dividends or other distributions with a record date after the Effective Time but prior to such surrender or transfer and with a payment date subsequent to such surrender or transfer payable with respect to such whole Parent Shares and (B) Parent shall pay or cause the Surviving Company to pay all dividends or other distributions, in each case with a record date prior to the Effective Time, that have been declared or made by the Company with respect to the shares of

Company Common Stock in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, but that have not been paid on such shares.

5

(d) No Further Ownership Rights in Company Common Stock. All Parent Shares issued and all Cash Consideration and

Supplemental Cash Consideration paid upon the surrender or transfer for exchange of Company Certificates and Book-Entry Shares in accordance with the terms of this Article II (including any cash paid pursuant to Section 2.2(c) and Section 2.2(e)) will be deemed to have been issued or paid, as the case may be, in full satisfaction of all rights pertaining to the shares of Company Common Stock theretofore represented by such Company Certificates and such Book-Entry Shares, and there will be no further registration of transfers on the stock transfer books of the Surviving Company of the shares of Company Common Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time. If, after the Effective Time, Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares are presented to

Parent, the Surviving Company or the Exchange Agent for any reason, they will be canceled and exchanged as provided in this

Article II.

(e) No Fractional Shares.

(i) No certificates, receipts or scrip representing fractional Parent Shares shall be issued upon the surrender or transfer for exchange of Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares, no dividend or distribution of Parent will relate to such fractional Parent Shares and such fractional Parent Shares will not entitle the owner thereof to vote or to any rights of a Parent

Stockholder.

(ii) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, each holder of Company Common Stock converted pursuant to the Merger who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fraction of a Parent Share (after taking into account all shares of

Company Common Stock held at the Effective Time by such holder) shall receive, in lieu thereof, from the Exchange Agent, a cash payment in United States dollars in lieu of such fractional Parent Share either (A) representing that holder’s proportionate interest in the net proceeds from the sale by the Exchange Agent in one or more transactions of the aggregate of the fractional Parent Shares which would otherwise have been issued under this Article II (the “Excess Parent Shares”) or (B) cash in accordance with Section 2.2

(e)(iii) below. The sale of the Excess Parent Shares shall be (A) executed on The NASDAQ Stock Market and (B) made at such times, in such manner and on such terms as the Exchange Agent shall determine in its reasonable discretion. Until the net proceeds of such sale or sales have been distributed to the holders of Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares in accordance with this

Section 2.2, the Exchange Agent shall hold the net proceeds in trust (the “Exchange Trust”) for those holders. All commissions, fees, transfer taxes and other out-of-pocket transaction costs, including the expenses and compensation of the Exchange Agent, incurred in connection with the sale of the Excess Parent Shares shall be paid by Parent and the Surviving Company. As soon as practicable after the determination of the amount of cash to be paid to holders of Company Certificates and Book-Entry Shares in lieu of fractional

Parent Shares, the Exchange Agent shall make that amount available to those holders, without interest. The Exchange Agent shall determine the portion of the net proceeds to which each holder of Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares shall be entitled by multiplying the aggregate amount of the net proceeds by a fraction of which (1) the numerator is the amount of the fractional Parent

Shares to which such holder of Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares is entitled (after taking into account all Company

Certificates delivered by such holder) and (2) the denominator is the aggregate amount of fractional Parent Shares to which all holders of Company Certificates and Book-Entry Shares are entitled.

(iii) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 2.2(e)(ii), Parent may elect, at its option exercised prior to the

Effective Time, to pay to the Exchange Agent an amount in cash in United States dollars, to be deposited promptly following the

Effective Time, sufficient for the Exchange Agent to pay each holder of Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares an amount in cash equal to the product obtained by multiplying (A) the fraction of a Parent Share to which such holder would otherwise have been entitled by (B) the closing price for a Parent Share on the NASDAQ Stock Market on the first Business Day immediately following the Effective Time. In such event, all references in this Agreement to the net proceeds from the sale of the Excess Parent Shares and similar references shall be deemed to refer to the payments calculated in the manner set forth in this Section 2.2(e)(iii).

6

(f) Termination of Exchange Fund and Exchange Trust. Any portion of the Exchange Fund or the Exchange Trust that remains undistributed to the holders of the Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares for one year after the Effective Time will be delivered to Parent, upon demand, and any holders of Company Certificates or Book-Entry Shares who have not theretofore complied with this Article II may thereafter look only to Parent (subject to abandoned property, escheat or other similar Laws) as general creditors thereof for payment of their claim for Merger Consideration and any dividends or distributions, if any, with respect to Parent

Shares. Any amounts remaining unclaimed by such holders at such time at which such amounts would otherwise escheat to or become property of any Governmental Entity shall become, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, the property of the Surviving

Company or its designee, free and clear of all claims or interest of any person previously entitled thereto.

(g) No Liability. None of Parent, Merger Sub, the Surviving Company or the Exchange Agent will be liable to any person in respect of any Parent Shares, any dividends or distributions with respect thereto, any cash in lieu of fractional Parent Shares or any cash from the Exchange Fund or Exchange Trust, in each case, delivered to a public official pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar Law.

(h) Investment of Exchange Fund and Exchange Trust. The Exchange Agent will invest any cash in the Exchange Fund and Exchange Trust as directed by Parent; provided, however, that any investment of such cash will in all events be limited to direct short-term obligations of, or short-term obligations fully guaranteed as to principal and interest by, the U.S. government, in commercial paper rated A-1 or P-1 or better by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. or Standard & Poor’s Corporation, respectively, or in certificates of deposit, bank repurchase agreements or banker’s acceptances of commercial banks with capital exceeding $25 billion

(based on the most recent financial statements of such bank that are then publicly available), and that no such investment or loss thereon will affect the amounts payable pursuant to this Agreement. Any interest and other income resulting from such investments will be paid to Parent. In the event that the Exchange Fund and Exchange Trust is insufficient to make the payments contemplated by this Article II, Parent will, or will cause the Surviving Company, promptly to deposit additional funds with the Exchange Agent in an amount that is equal to the deficiency in the amount required to make such payment. The Exchange Fund and Exchange Trust will not be used for any purpose not expressly provided for in this Agreement.

(i) Lost Certificates. If any Company Certificate has been lost, stolen or destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the person claiming such Company Certificate to be lost, stolen or destroyed and, if required by the Exchange Agent, the posting by such person of a bond in such customary and reasonable amount as the Exchange Agent may direct as indemnity against any claim that may be made against it with respect to such Company Certificate, the Exchange Agent shall issue, in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed Company Certificate, the Merger Consideration and, if applicable, any unpaid dividends and distributions on Parent Shares deliverable in respect thereof, due to such person pursuant to this Agreement.

2.3 Certain Adjustments. If at any time during the period between the date of this Agreement and the Effective Time, any change in the outstanding shares of capital stock, or securities convertible or exchangeable into or exercisable for shares of capital stock, of the Company or Parent shall occur as a result of any merger, business combination, reclassification, recapitalization, stock split (including a reverse stock split) or subdivision or combination, exchange or readjustment of shares, or any stock dividend or stock distribution with a record date during such period, the Merger Consideration, the

7

Exchange Ratio, and any other similarly dependent items, as the case may be, shall be equitably adjusted, without duplication, to provide the holders of Company Common Stock (or such rights that are convertible into shares of Company Common Stock) the same economic effect as contemplated by this Agreement prior to such event; provided that nothing in this Section 2.3 shall be construed to permit either the Company or Parent to take any action with respect to its respective securities that is prohibited or not expressly permitted by the terms of this Agreement.

2.4 Appraisal Rights. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, including Section 2.1(c), shares of

Company Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than shares cancelled in accordance with Section 2.1(b)) and held by a record holder or beneficial owner who has not voted in favor of adoption of this Agreement or consented thereto in writing and who is statutorily entitled to exercise appraisal rights and who duly complies with all provisions of

Section 262 of the DGCL concerning the right of holders of shares of Company Common Stock to dissent from the Merger and seek appraisal of their shares of Company Common Stock (such shares being referred to collectively as the “Dissenting Shares” until such time as such holder fails to perfect or otherwise loses such holder’s dissenters’ rights under the DGCL with respect to such shares of

Company Common Stock) will not be converted into a right to receive the Merger Consideration, but instead will be entitled to only such rights as are granted by Section 262 of the DGCL; provided, however, that if, after the Effective Time, such holder fails to perfect, withdraws or loses such holder’s appraisal rights pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL or if a court of competent jurisdiction determines that such holder is not entitled to the relief provided by Section 262 of the DGCL, such shares of Company Common

Stock will be treated as if they had been converted as of the Effective Time into the right to receive the Merger Consideration in accordance with Section 2.1(c), without interest thereon and less any required withholding taxes, upon surrender or transfer of such

Company Certificate or Book-Entry Shares formerly representing such shares of Company Common Stock in the manner provided in

Section 2.2(b). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if the Merger is rescinded or abandoned prior to the Effective Time, then the right of any stockholder of the Company to be paid the fair value of such holder’s Dissenting Shares pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL will be null and void. The Company will provide Parent prompt written notice of any demands received by the Company for appraisal of shares of Company Common Stock, any withdrawal of any such demand and any other demand, notice or instrument delivered to the Company prior to the Effective Time pursuant to Section 262 of the DGCL that relates to such demand, and Parent will have the opportunity and right to direct and control all negotiations and proceedings with respect to such demands. Except with the prior written consent of Parent or to the extent required by Law, the Company will not make any payment with respect to, or settle or agree or offer to settle, any such demands.

2.5 Further Assurances. At and after the Effective Time, the officers and directors of the Surviving Company will be authorized to execute and deliver, in the name and on behalf of the Company or Merger Sub, any deeds, bills of sale, assignments or assurances and to take and do, in the name and on behalf of the Company or Merger Sub, any other actions and things to vest, perfect or confirm of record or otherwise in the Surviving Company any and all right, title and interest in, to and under any of the rights, properties or assets acquired or to be acquired by the Surviving Company as a result of, or in connection with, the Merger.

2.6 Withholding Rights. The Surviving Company, Parent or the Exchange Agent, as the case may be, shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from the consideration otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement to any person such amounts, if any, as it is required to deduct and withhold with respect to the making of such payment under the Code, or any provision of applicable Tax Law.

To the extent that amounts are so withheld and timely remitted to the appropriate taxing authority by the Surviving Company, Parent or the Exchange Agent, as the case may be, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to such person in respect of which such deduction and

8

withholding was made by the Surviving Company, Parent or the Exchange Agent, as the case may be. The Surviving Company,

Parent or the Exchange Agent, as the case may be, shall pay, or shall cause to be paid, all amounts so withheld to the appropriate taxing authority within the period required under applicable Tax Law. In the case of any proposed withholding under Section 1445 of the Code, Parent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide to the Company written notice of such proposed withholding at least 14 Business Days prior to the Closing in order to allow the Company to deliver to Parent appropriate certifications exempting payment of the Merger Consideration from withholding under Section 1445 of the Code.

The

(b) The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Parent and Merger Sub does not, and the consummation of the Merger and the other transactions contemplated hereby will not, constitute or result in (i) a breach or violation of, or a default under, the Parent Charter, (ii) a breach or violation of any Law or Order applicable to Parent, Merger Sub or any of their respective

4.5 Parent Filings.

(a) Parent has filed with or furnished to the SEC all reports, schedules, forms, statements, prospectuses, registration statements and other documents required to be filed or furnished by it on or after January 1, 2014 (collectively, together with any exhibits and schedules thereto and other information incorporated therein, the “Parent SEC Documents”; together with any of the foregoing filed with or furnished to the SEC by Parent after the date of this Agreement and prior to the Effective Time, the “Parent

(c) Since January 1, 2014, there has been no change in Parent’s accounting policies or the methods of making accounting estimates or changes in estimates that are material to Parent’s financial statements, except as described in the Parent Filings or except as may be required or permitted by any Governmental Entity. The reserves reflected in the Parent’s financial statements are in accordance with GAAP and have been calculated in a consistent manner.

Subsidiaries. Neither Parent nor any of its Subsidiaries nor, to the Knowledge of Parent, any director, officer, auditor, accountant, consultant or authorized representative of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries has discharged, demoted, suspended, threatened, harassed or in any other manner discriminated against an employee of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries in the terms and conditions of employment because of any lawful act of such employee described in Section 806 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

International Traffic in Arms Regulations; and the various economic sanctions laws administered by OFAC. Without limiting the foregoing, there are no pending or, to the Knowledge of Parent, threatened claims or investigations by any Governmental Entity of potential violations against Parent or any of its Subsidiaries with respect to export activity or export licenses, that would reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the aggregate, a Parent Material Adverse Effect.

(c) Since January 1, 2014, neither Parent nor any of its Subsidiaries and, to the Knowledge of Parent, no director, officer, agent, employee or other Person acting at the direction of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries has, directly or indirectly, taken any action which would cause it to be in violation of any Anti-Corruption Laws, used any corporate funds for unlawful contributions, gifts, entertainment or other unlawful expenses relating to political activity, made, offered or authorized any unlawful payment to foreign or domestic government officials or employees, whether directly or indirectly, or made, offered or authorized any bribe, rebate, payoff, influence payment, kickback or other similar unlawful payment, whether directly or indirectly, except for such non-compliance, defaults and violations that would not reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the aggregate, a Parent Material Adverse

Subsidiaries, infringes, misappropriates or otherwise makes unauthorized use of any Intellectual Property of any Person, except as would not reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the aggregate, a Parent Material Adverse Effect.

4.11 Information Supplied. None of the information supplied or to be supplied by Parent or Merger Sub specifically for inclusion or incorporation by reference (i) in the Form S-4 at the time the Form S-4 becomes effective under the Securities Act or the

Exchange Act, as applicable, or at the Effective Time, or (ii) in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus, at the date it is first published or, as applicable, mailed to the Company Stockholders or at the time of the Company Stockholders Meeting, will contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they are made, not

28

(q) the Company will not, and will not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, enter into a Contract to do any of the foregoing.

In addition to the covenants set forth in clauses (a) through (q) of the immediately preceding sentence, from the date of this

Agreement until the earliest to occur of the Effective Time, the date that is 120 days after the date of this Agreement (the “Enhanced

Covenants Date”) or the termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms, the Company shall be subject to the restrictions and limitations set forth in the immediately following clauses (i) to (v) (the “Enhanced Covenants”):

(i) the Company will not, and will not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, incur, assume, guarantee or, endorse, prepay or otherwise become liable for any indebtedness for borrowed money (directly, contingently or otherwise), or make any loans, advances or capital contributions to, or investments in, any other Person in an aggregate principal amount that exceeds $1,000,000 and prepayment of Retired Company Indebtedness pursuant to Section 5.18(b);

(v) the Company will not, and will not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, settle, or offer or propose to settle, any litigation, arbitration or other proceeding involving or against the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, if the settlements would in the aggregate require payments by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries exceeding, in the aggregate, $1,000,000.

The Company may request consent from Parent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed with respect to the matters in clauses (a), (e) (to the extent specifically set forth therein), (g), (i), (k), (l), (m), (n), (p) or, to the extent related thereto,

(q) of the first sentence, or clauses (i) to (v) of the immediately preceding sentence, of this Section 5.1) with respect to the actions proscribed in this Section 5.1 by delivering written notice. The Company, on the one hand, and Parent and Merger Sub, on the other hand, acknowledge and agree that (i) nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to give Parent or Merger Sub, directly or indirectly, the right to control or direct the operations of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries prior to the Effective Time, (ii) prior to the Effective Time, the Company will exercise, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, control and supervision over its and its Subsidiaries’ operations, and (iii) notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no consent of Parent will be required with respect to any matter set forth in this Section 5.1 or elsewhere in this Agreement to the extent the requirement of such consent would reasonably be expected to be a violation of applicable Law.

5.2 Conduct of Business by Merger Sub. During the period from the date of this Agreement to the Effective Time, Merger Sub shall not engage in any activities of any nature except as provided in or contemplated by this Agreement.

34

5.3 Company Acquisition Proposals.

(a) Except as expressly permitted by this Section 5.3, from all times commencing with the execution and delivery of this

Agreement and continuing until the termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms (the “No-Shop Period”), the Company and its Subsidiaries will not, and the Company will not authorize, direct or knowingly permit its Representatives to, (i) initiate, solicit or knowingly encourage the making of any proposal or offer that constitutes, or would reasonably be expected to result in, a

Company Acquisition Proposal, (ii) engage in, enter into, continue or otherwise participate in any discussions or negotiations with any Person with respect to, or provide any non-public information or data concerning the Company or its Subsidiaries to any Person relating to, any proposal or offer that constitutes, or would reasonably be expected to result in, a Company Acquisition Proposal (for avoidance of doubt, it being understood that the foregoing will not prohibit the Company or the Company’s Representatives from making such Person aware of the restrictions of this Section 5.3 in response to the receipt of a Company Acquisition Proposal),

(iii) enter into any acquisition agreement, merger agreement or similar definitive agreement, or any letter of intent, memorandum of understanding or agreement in principle or any other agreement (other than an Acceptable Company Confidentiality Agreement) relating to a Company Acquisition Proposal (an “Alternative Company Acquisition Agreement”), or (iv) authorize, adopt, approve or recommend or publicly propose to authorize, adopt, approve or recommend to the Company Stockholders, or submit to the Company

Stockholders for a vote at any stockholder meeting, any Company Acquisition Proposal. Immediately after the execution of this

Agreement, the Company will, and will cause its Subsidiaries and Representatives to, cease any discussions or negotiations with any

Person with respect to any Company Acquisition Proposal.

(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 5.3(a), at any time prior to receipt of the Company

Stockholder Approval, if the Company receives a bona fide Company Acquisition Proposal from any Person that did not result from a material breach of Section 5.3(a), the Company and its Representatives may contact such Person to clarify the terms and conditions thereof and (i) the Company and its Representatives may provide information (including non-public information and data) regarding, and afford access to the business, properties, assets, books, records and personnel of, the Company and its Subsidiaries to such Person if the Company receives from such Person (or has received from such Person) an executed Acceptable Company Confidentiality

Agreement, provided that the Company will promptly (and in any event within 24 hours) make available to Parent any non-public information concerning the Company or its Subsidiaries that is provided to any Person given such access that was not previously made available to Parent and (ii) the Company and its Representatives may engage in, enter into, continue or otherwise participate in any discussions or negotiations with such Person with respect to such Company Acquisition Proposal, as long as (A) the Company has not materially breached Section 5.3(a) with respect to such Company Acquisition Proposal and (B) prior to taking any action described in clauses (i) or (ii) above, the Company Board determines in good faith that (1) such Company Acquisition Proposal either constitutes a Company Superior Proposal or would reasonably be expected to result in a Company Superior Proposal and (2) the failure to participate in such discussions or negotiations or furnish such information would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with the directors’ fiduciary duties under applicable Law.

(c) During the No-Shop Period, the Company will promptly after knowledge by the Company of receipt (and in any event within 24 hours after knowledge of receipt), notify Parent both orally and in writing of the receipt by the Company of any Company

Acquisition Proposal or any request for information from, or any negotiations sought to be initiated or resumed with, either the

Company or its Representatives concerning a Company Acquisition Proposal, which notice will include a written summary of the material terms of any Company Acquisition Proposal not made in writing or any such inquiry or request and provide a copy of such

Company Acquisition Proposal (if made in writing). The Company will keep Parent reasonably informed on a prompt basis (and in any event within 24 hours after knowledge of receipt) of any material developments regarding any Company Acquisition Proposal.

35

(d) Except as set forth in this Section 5.3(d), the Company Board will not (i) (A) change, withhold, withdraw, qualify or modify, in a manner adverse to Parent (or publicly propose or resolve to change, withhold, withdraw, qualify or modify), the

Company Recommendation, (B) fail to include the Company Recommendation in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus, (C) publicly approve or recommend, or publicly propose to approve or recommend to the Company Stockholders, a Company Acquisition

Proposal, or (D) if (1) a tender offer or exchange offer for shares of capital stock of the Company that constitutes a Company

Acquisition Proposal is commenced or (2) a Company Acquisition Proposal is otherwise publicly announced, fail to recommend against acceptance of such tender offer or exchange offer by the Company Stockholders or against such Company Acquisition

Proposal within 10 Business Days after commencement or announcement thereof (any of the foregoing, a “Company Change of

Recommendation”) or (ii) authorize, adopt, approve or publicly propose to authorize, adopt or approve or recommend, or enter into, any Alternative Company Acquisition Agreement (x) constituting or relating to a Company Acquisition Proposal or (y) requiring the

Company to abandon, terminate, or fail to consummate the Merger or any other transaction contemplated by this Agreement.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, the Company Board may (I) without excluding the Company

Board’s right to act in accordance with clause (II), effect a Company Change of Recommendation that does not relate to a Company

Acquisition Proposal if the Company Board determines in good faith (after consultation with its outside legal counsel) that, as a result of an event, development or change in circumstances that occurs or arises after the execution and delivery of this Agreement (other than a Company Acquisition Proposal) that was not known (or the consequences of which were not known) to the Company Board prior to the execution and delivery of this Agreement (a “Company Intervening Event”), the failure to effect a Company Change of

Recommendation would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with the directors’ fiduciary duties under applicable Law and (II) without excluding the Company Board’s right to act in accordance with clause (I), effect a Company Change of Recommendation if the Company receives a Company Acquisition Proposal and the Company Board determines in good faith (after consultation with outside counsel and its financial advisors) that the Company Acquisition Proposal constitutes a Company Superior Proposal and that the failure to effect a Company Change of Recommendation would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with the directors’ fiduciary duties under applicable Law; provided, however, that the Company Board may take the actions described in (1) clause (II) only if the Company (A) has not materially breached Section 5.3(a), Section 5.3(b) or Section 5.3(c) with respect to such Company

Acquisition Proposal and (B) terminates this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.3(a) concurrently with entering into such Alternative

Company Acquisition Agreement and pays the Company Termination Fee in compliance with Section 7.5(b) and (2) clauses (I) or

(II) if:

(y) the Company has provided prior written notice to Parent (which notice itself will not constitute a Company Change of

Recommendation) of its or the Company Board’s intention to take such actions at least four Business Days in advance of taking such action, which notice will specify, as applicable, the material circumstances of such Company Intervening Event or the information and documents required to be furnished pursuant to Section 5.3(c); and

(z) the Company Board has considered in good faith any changes to this Agreement or other arrangements that may be offered in writing by, and would be legally binding upon, Parent by 5:00 PM California time on the fourth Business Day after the Company has provided the notice described in the preceding clause (y) and shall have determined in good faith (A) with respect to the actions described in clause (II), after consultation with outside counsel and its financial advisors, that the

Company Acquisition Proposal received by the Company continues to constitute a Company Superior Proposal and (B) with respect to the actions described in clause

36

(I), after consultation with outside counsel, that it would continue to reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with the directors’ fiduciary duties under applicable Law not to effect the Company Change of Recommendation, in each case, if such changes offered in writing by Parent in a definitive agreement were given effect. In the event of any amendment to the financial terms or any other material revisions to the Company Superior Proposal, the Company shall be required to deliver a new written notice to Parent pursuant to the preceding clause (y) and to comply with the requirements of this clause (z) with respect to such new written notice, except the notice period shall be at least two Business Days (rather than the four Business Days contemplated by clause (y) and this clause (z)).

(e) Subject to the proviso in this Section 5.3(e), nothing contained in this Section 5.3 will be deemed to prohibit the

Company or the Company Board from (i) taking such actions as the Company determines in good faith after consultation with outside legal counsel are required to comply with its disclosure obligations under U.S. federal or state Law with regard to a Company

Acquisition Proposal or Company Intervening Event, including taking and disclosing to the Company Stockholders a position required or contemplated by Rule 14d-9 or Rule 14e-2(a) under the Exchange Act (or any similar communication to stockholders in connection with the making or amendment of a tender offer or exchange offer) or (ii) publishing any “stop-look-and-listen” communication pursuant to Rule 14d-9(f) under the Exchange Act (or any similar communications to the Company Stockholders), with any “stop-look-and-listen” communication not being deemed to be a Company Change of Recommendation; provided that neither the Company Board nor any committee thereof will effect a Company Change of Recommendation unless the applicable requirements of Section 5.3(d) have been satisfied.

5.4 Reasonable Best Efforts.

(a) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, each of the Company, Parent and Merger Sub will use

(and cause its Affiliates to use) its reasonable best efforts (subject to, and in accordance with, applicable Law) to take promptly, or cause to be taken promptly, all actions, and to do promptly, or cause to be done promptly, and to assist and cooperate with the other parties in doing, all things necessary, proper or advisable under applicable Laws to consummate and make effective the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including (i) the obtaining of all necessary actions or nonactions, waivers, consents and approvals from Governmental Entities and the making of all necessary registrations and filings and the taking of all steps as may be necessary to obtain an approval or waiver from, or to avoid an action or proceeding by, any Governmental Entity,

(ii) the obtaining of all necessary consents, approvals or waivers from third parties and all consents, approvals and waivers from third parties reasonably requested by Parent or the Company to be obtained in respect of the Company Material Contracts in connection with the Merger, this Agreement or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (it being understood that the failure to receive any such consents, approvals or waivers will not be a condition to the obligations of the parties hereunder), (iii) the defending of any lawsuits or other legal proceedings, whether judicial or administrative, challenging this Agreement, or the consummation of the

Merger or the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and (iv) the execution and delivery of any additional instruments necessary to consummate the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, however, that in no event will the Company or any of its Subsidiaries be required to pay prior to the Effective Time any fee, penalty or other consideration to any third party for any consent or approval required for the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement under any Contract or to incur any material cost or expense in the performance hereof and that in no event will Parent or any of its

Subsidiaries be required to pay prior to the Effective Time any fee, penalty or other consideration to any third party for any consent or approval required for the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement under any Contract or to incur any material cost or expense in the performance hereof.

37

(b) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, and without limiting the foregoing, the Company and

Parent will (i) promptly, and using their respective reasonable best efforts to make such initial filing by the dates set forth on

Section 5.4(b) of the Parent Disclosure Schedule for the jurisdictions listed therein, make their respective filings and thereafter make any other required submissions under the HSR Act and any other applicable foreign Antitrust Law, (ii) except in connection with a disclosure by the Company regarding a Company Change of Recommendation or a Company Acquisition Proposal received by the

Company, use reasonable best efforts to cooperate with each other in (x) determining whether any filings are required to be made with, or consents, permits, authorizations, waivers or approvals are required to be obtained from, any third parties or other

Governmental Entities in connection with the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and (y) timely making all such filings and timely seeking all such consents, permits, authorizations or approvals,

(iii) promptly inform the other party upon receipt of any material communication from the Antitrust Division of the United States

Department of Justice or any other Governmental Entity regarding any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and

(iv) subject to applicable legal limitations and the instructions of any Governmental Entity, keep each other apprised of the status of matters relating to the completion of the transactions contemplated thereby, including promptly furnishing the other with copies of notices or other communications received by the Company or Parent, as the case may be, or any of their respective Subsidiaries, from any Governmental Entity with respect to the Merger. Except in connection with a disclosure by the Company regarding a Company

Change of Recommendation or a Company Acquisition Proposal received by the Company, the Company and Parent will permit counsel for the other party reasonable opportunity to review in advance, and consider in good faith the views of the other party in connection with, any proposed material written communication to any Governmental Entity. Each of the Company and Parent agrees not to (A) participate in any substantive meeting or discussion, either in person or by telephone, with any Governmental Entity in connection with the proposed transactions unless it consults with the other party in advance and, to the extent practicable and not prohibited by such Governmental Entity, gives the other party the opportunity to attend and participate, (B) extend any waiting period under the HSR Act without the prior written consent of the other party (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), or (C) enter into any agreement with any Governmental Entity not to consummate the transactions contemplated by this

Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).

(c) In furtherance and not in limitation of the covenants of the parties contained in this Section 5.4, if any administrative or judicial action or proceeding, including any proceeding by a private party, is instituted (or threatened to be instituted) challenging any transaction contemplated by this Agreement as violative of any Antitrust Law, each of the Company and Parent will cooperate in all respects with each other and will use their respective reasonable best efforts to contest and resist any such action or proceeding and to have vacated, lifted, reversed or overturned any decree, judgment, injunction or other order, whether temporary, preliminary or permanent, that is in effect and that prohibits, prevents or restricts consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

For the purpose of the preceding sentence, reasonable best efforts includes using their reasonable best efforts to (i) effect any sale, license, holding separate or other disposition of any of their respective assets, businesses or interests and (ii) agree to conditions relating to or changes in the conduct of their respective businesses necessary to obtain consents, permits, authorizations, waivers or approvals required for the Closing under the Antitrust Laws, with any such action to be conditioned on the consummation of the

Merger. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, however, in no event shall Parent, the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries be obligated to commit to any actions, and, without the prior written consent of Parent, neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries shall consent to or take any actions, including to sell, hold separate or otherwise dispose of any assets, businesses or interests or agree to conditions relating to or changes in the conduct of its business, that would reduce the reasonably

38

anticipated benefits to Parent of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement in an amount that is financially material relative to the value of the Company and its Subsidiaries as a whole. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement, nothing in this Section 5.4 will limit a party’s right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.2 so long as such party has, prior to such termination, complied with its obligations under this Section 5.4.

(d) Parent shall prepare promptly and submit to the French Ministry of the Economy within 15 calendar days after the date of this Agreement a completed application requesting authorization for a foreign investment in France pursuant to and in accordance with the French Foreign Investment Laws (the “French Foreign Investment Application”). The Company shall cooperate with Parent in its preparation of the application, including by providing it promptly with all documents and information regarding the relevant

Subsidiary(ies) of the Company as are required to complete the French Foreign Investment Application. Parent shall keep the

Company informed promptly of (i) any communications, whether written or oral, of the French Ministry of the Economy concerning the French Foreign Investment Application or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement generally, (ii) any proposed meetings or calls with the French Ministry of the Economy, and (iii) the results of any meetings or calls with the French Ministry of the

Economy. Parent shall, after coordination with the Company, provide the Company with the opportunity to participate, to the extent practical, in any meetings or calls with the French Ministry of the Economy. Parent shall promptly respond to all questions and requests for information by the French Ministry of the Economy.

(e) Company Cooperation.

(i) From the date of this Agreement until the earlier of (i) the Effective Time or (ii) the date on which this

Agreement is terminated, subject to the Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement and the other provisions of this Section 5.4

(e), the Company shall (x) to the extent reasonably practicable and without a requirement for the Company to engage external advisors in connection with the preparation thereof, provide information reasonably requested by Parent in connection with any Tax planning or Tax integration undertaken by Parent for purposes of efficiently consummating the Merger, including, without limitation, in respect of the valuation of Atmel Trading Company, Ltd., and (y) cooperate in good faith with Parent in relation to Tax planning and Tax integration matters that may be reasonably requested by Parent for purposes of efficiently consummating the Merger (other than the actions specifically set forth on Section 5.4(e)(ii) of the Company Disclosure Schedule, which shall be governed solely by

Section 5.4(e)(ii).

(ii) From the Satisfaction Date until the Closing, upon the written request of Parent (any such request being referred to as a “Cooperation Request”), the Company shall take the actions specifically set forth on Section 5.4(e)(ii) of the Company

Disclosure Schedule. In the event of the delivery of a Cooperation Request, the conditions set forth in Sections 6.2(a), 6.2(c) (insofar as such condition relates to Section 6.2(a)) and 6.2(d) shall be deemed to be fully satisfied from and after the Satisfaction Date through and including the Closing (if such conditions were satisfied at the Satisfaction Date), without regard to any change in circumstances or other events that may occur after the Satisfaction Date, and Parent shall be deemed to have irrevocably waived on the Satisfaction Date all rights to assert such conditions.

(iii) For the avoidance of doubt, under no circumstances will the failure or refusal to take any actions requested by

Parent under Section 5.4(e)(i)(y) that could, in the sole determination of the Company, (x) have an adverse effect on the Company or

(y) be incapable of completion within five Business Days after the Satisfaction Date or otherwise result in a delay in Closing of more than five Business Days be deemed to be a breach by the Company of its obligations under this Section 5.4(e), and, in no event, shall any such failure, refusal, or inability, to take the actions requested

39

by Parent under Section 5.4(e)(i)(y) form the basis for any termination by Parent or Merger Sub of this Agreement, any failure of the conditions set forth in Section 6.2(b) to be satisfied, or any claim for damages or expenses by Parent or Merger Sub. Nothing in this

Section 5.4(e)(iii) limits the Company’s obligation to take any actions specifically set forth on Section 5.4(e)(ii) of the Company

Disclosure Schedule to the extent required by Section 5.4(e)(ii).

5.5 Advice of Changes. Each of the Company, Parent and Merger Sub shall promptly advise the other parties to this Agreement orally and in writing to the extent it has knowledge of any change or event having a Parent Material Adverse Effect or any change or event reasonably likely to prevent, materially delay or materially impede the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this

Agreement, in the case of Parent, or a Company Material Adverse Effect or any change or event reasonably likely to prevent, materially delay or materially impede the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, in the case of the

Company, or the ability of the conditions set forth in Article VI to be satisfied; provided, however, that no such notification or failure to deliver such notification will affect the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of the parties (or remedies with respect thereto) or the conditions to the obligations of the parties under this Agreement.

5.6 Preparation of the Form S-4 and the Proxy Statement/Prospectus; Company Stockholders Meeting.

(a) As soon as reasonably practicable following the date of this Agreement, (i) Parent and the Company shall jointly prepare and file with the SEC (and each shall use their reasonable best efforts to cause such filing to occur within 30 days of the date of this Agreement) the proxy statement/prospectus (as part of the Form S-4) that includes (A) a prospectus for the issuance of Parent

Shares in the Merger and (B) a proxy statement of the Company for use in the solicitation of proxies for the Company Stockholders

Meeting (such proxy statement/prospectus, as amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Proxy Statement/Prospectus”), and

(ii) Parent shall prepare and file with the SEC the Form S-4, in which the Proxy Statement/Prospectus will be included as a prospectus. Each of the Company and Parent shall use reasonable best efforts (i) to cause the Form S-4 and the Proxy

Statement/Prospectus to comply with the applicable rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC, (ii) to promptly notify the other of, cooperate with each other with respect to, and respond promptly, to any comments of the SEC or its staff, (iii) to have the Form S-

4 declared effective under the Securities Act as promptly as practicable after such filing, and (iv) to keep the Form S-4 effective through the Closing in order to permit the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Company shall use reasonable best efforts to cause the Proxy Statement/Prospectus to be mailed to the Company Stockholders as promptly as practicable after the Form S-4 is declared effective under the Securities Act. Parent and the Company will promptly provide all information concerning such entity to the other, and provide such other assistance as may be reasonably requested in connection with the preparation, filing and distribution of the Form S-4 and Proxy Statement/Prospectus (including that the Company shall cooperate in the preparation of any pro forma financial statements required to be included in the Form S-4 and Proxy Statement/Prospectus). No filing of, or amendment or supplement to, the Form S-4 will be made by Parent, and no filing of, or amendment or supplement to the

Proxy Statement/Prospectus will be made by the Company or Parent, in each case, without providing the other party and its respective counsel the reasonable opportunity to review and comment thereon and giving due consideration to such comments. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence and to the extent permitted under Section 5.3(d), the Company may amend or supplement (and

Parent will, at the Company’s request, amend or supplement) the Form S-4 or Proxy Statement/Prospectus to effect a Company

Change of Recommendation. Parent shall also take any other action required to be taken under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, and any applicable foreign or state securities or “blue sky” laws that are required to carry out the transactions contemplated by this

Agreement. The parties shall notify each other promptly of the receipt of any comments from the SEC or its staff and any request by the SEC or its staff for amendments

40

or supplements to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or the Form S-4, or for additional information and shall supply each other with copies of all correspondence between such party or any of its representatives, on the one hand, and the SEC or its staff on the other hand, with respect to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus, the Form S-4 or the Merger. Parent will advise the Company, promptly after it receives notice thereof, of the time when the Form S-4 has become effective or any supplement or amendment thereto has been filed, the issuance of any stop order or the suspension of the qualification of the Parent Shares issuable in connection with the Merger for offering or sale in any jurisdiction and Parent and the Company will use reasonable best efforts to have any stop order or suspension lifted, reversed or otherwise terminated. If at any time prior to the Effective Time any information relating to the Company or Parent, or any of their respective affiliates, officers or directors, should be discovered by the Company or Parent which should be set forth in an amendment or supplement to the Form S-4 or the Proxy Statement/Prospectus, so that any of such documents would not include any misstatement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, the party which discovers such information shall promptly notify the other parties hereto and an appropriate amendment or supplement describing such information shall be promptly filed with the SEC and, to the extent required by Law, disseminated to the stockholders of the Company.

(b) The Company shall, as soon as practicable following the date the Form S-4 is declared effective by the SEC (and in no event later than 45 days following the date the Form S-4 is declared effective by the SEC), duly call, give notice of, convene and hold, at its option, either an annual or special meeting of its stockholders (the “Company Stockholders Meeting”) in accordance with applicable Law, the Company Charter and the Company Bylaws for the purpose of obtaining the Company Stockholder Approval and, in the case of an annual meeting of stockholders, for the other purposes as may be appropriate for an annual meeting of stockholders. Subject to Section 5.3(d), the Company shall (A) through the Company Board, recommend to its stockholders the approval and adoption of this Agreement, the Merger and the other the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and include in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus such recommendation and (B) subject to Section 5.3(d), use its reasonable best efforts to solicit and obtain such approval and adoption. Subject to Section 5.3(d), the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to solicit or cause to be solicited from its stockholders proxies in favor of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the matters subject to the

Company Stockholder Approval. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement and after consultation with

Parent, the Company may adjourn or postpone the Company Stockholders Meeting if (and solely to the extent and for the minimum duration reasonably necessary to ensure that): (1) any supplement or amendment to the Proxy Statement/Prospectus required under applicable Law is timely provided to the Company Stockholders within a reasonable amount of time in advance of the Company

Stockholders Meeting or (2) as of the time for which the Company Stockholders Meeting is originally scheduled there are insufficient shares of Company Common Stock represented (either in person or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct the business to be conducted at the Company Stockholders Meeting and to obtain the Company Stockholder Approval.

5.7 Access to Information; Confidentiality.

(a) For purposes of furthering the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, from the date of this Agreement until the earlier of (i) the Effective Time or (ii) the date on which this Agreement is terminated, subject to the Confidentiality and Non-

Disclosure Agreement, each of Parent and the Company shall, and shall cause each of their respective Subsidiaries to, afford to the

Representatives of the other party reasonable access, during normal business hours, to all of its properties, books, contracts, commitments, personnel and records and all other information concerning their business, properties and personnel as the other party may reasonably request upon reasonable prior notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither Parent nor the Company nor any of their respective Subsidiaries or Representatives shall conduct or cause to be conducted any sampling, testing or other invasive

41

investigation of the air, soil, soil gas, surface water, groundwater, building materials or other environmental media. No investigation pursuant to this Section 5.7 shall affect any representation or warranty in this Agreement of any party hereto or any condition to the obligations of the parties hereto. With respect to all information furnished by one party to the other party or its Representatives under this Agreement, the parties shall comply with, and shall cause their respective Representatives to comply with, all of their respective obligations under the Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement. The Company agrees that the Confidentiality and Non-

5.9 Employee Benefits.

(a) As of the Effective Time, Parent will, and will cause the Surviving Company, its Subsidiaries and their permitted successors and assigns, to honor and perform all employment or compensatory Contracts between the Company or any of its

Subsidiaries, on the one hand, and any Company Employee, on the other (including all retention awards and employment, employment continuation, severance, incentive, change in control and termination Contracts disclosed in Section 3.10(a) of the

Company Disclosure Schedule and the Assumed Equity Awards (as defined in Section 5.15(c) of this Agreement)).

(b) From the date of this Agreement through December 31, 2016 (the “Transition Period”), Parent will provide or cause to be provided to each employee of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of the Effective Time working in the United States who continues employment with Parent or any of its direct or indirect Subsidiaries (each, an “Affected Employee”), while employed by

Parent or any of its direct or indirect Subsidiaries, compensation and benefits the value of which is comparable in the aggregate to the aggregate value of the compensation and benefits provided to such Affected Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time

(excluding the value of any defined benefit pension plan and the Company ESPP). During the Transition Period, (i) each Affected

Employee, while employed by the Parent or any of its direct or indirect Subsidiaries, will be provided base wages or salary, as applicable, that are not less than the base wages or salary, as applicable, provided to such Affected Employee immediately prior to the

Effective Time and (ii) each Affected Employee will be provided severance benefits not less favorable in amount or with regard to terms and conditions to receive such severance benefits than those disclosed in Section 3.10(a) of the Company Disclosure Schedule.

(c) From and after the Effective Time, Parent will cause any employee benefit plans in which the Affected Employees are entitled to participate to take into account for purposes of eligibility, vesting, level of benefits and benefit accrual (but not for benefit accrual purposes under any defined benefit pension plan, unless required by Law) thereunder, service for the Company and its

Subsidiaries as if such service were with Parent, to the same extent such service was credited under a comparable plan of the

Company or any of its Subsidiaries (and their respective predecessor entities) prior to the Effective Time (except to the extent it would result in a duplication of benefits or compensation with respect to the same period of service), and Affected Employees will be immediately eligible to participate in any such plans, without any waiting period, to the extent such Affected Employee was eligible to participate in the comparable Company plan immediately prior to the Effective Time. To the extent any health benefit plan replaces a Company Benefit Plan that is a health benefit plan during the Transition Period, Parent will, and will cause its direct and indirect

Subsidiaries (including the Surviving Company) to (i) waive all limitations as to preexisting condition exclusions and all waiting periods with respect to participation and coverage requirements applicable to each Affected Employee to the extent waived or satisfied under the replaced Company Benefit Plan and (ii) credit each Affected Employee for any applicable amounts (whether in the nature of co-payments or coinsurance amounts, amounts applied toward deductibles or other out-of-pocket expenses) under the terms of the replaced Company Benefit Plan toward satisfying any applicable deductible, co-payment or out-of-pocket requirements under the health benefit plan that replaces such a Company Benefit Plan for the plan year in which the transition between plans occurs.

(d) Nothing contained in this Section 5.9 or any other provision of this Agreement (i) will be construed to amend or modify, as of the date of this Agreement, any benefit, compensation or severance plan, program, agreement, contract, policy or arrangement sponsored by the Company, Parent or their Affiliates, (ii) will limit the ability of Parent or any of its Affiliates to amend, modify or terminate any benefit, compensation or severance plan, program, agreement, contract, policy or arrangement that is assumed, established, sponsored or maintained by Parent or its Affiliates, provided any such amendment, modification or termination must comply with the terms thereof and applicable Law, (iii) will create any

43

third-party beneficiary rights or obligations in any Person (including any Affected Employee) other than the parties to this

Agreement, or (iv) will limit the right of Parent (or its Subsidiaries) to terminate, in accordance with applicable Law, the employment or service of any employee or other service provider during the Transition Period.

(e) If requested by Parent at least 10 days prior to the Closing, then effective as of no later than the day immediately preceding the Closing, the Company will terminate each of the Company Benefit Plans intended to be “qualified” within the meaning of Section 401(a) of the Code, in which case Parent will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide for the Microchip

Technology Incorporated Savings Plan, to accept, on or after Closing, the rollover by Affected Employees of any “eligible rollover distribution” (within the meaning of Section 402(c)(4) of the Code) from the Atmel Corporation Tax Deferred Savings Plan, including plan loans, in accordance with applicable Code provisions.

5.10 Expenses. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, whether or not the Merger is consummated, all costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement, the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement will be paid by the party incurring such expense.

5.11 Indemnification; Directors’ and Officers’ Insurance.

(a) To the fullest extent required or permitted by Law, for a period of six years following the Effective Time, Parent will, and will cause the Surviving Company to, indemnify and hold harmless, and advance expenses as incurred to, in each case to the fullest extent required or permitted under applicable Law, each current and former director or officer of the Company or any of its

Subsidiaries who, as of the date of this Agreement, is entitled to be indemnified under the Company Charter or Company Bylaws as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) against any costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines, losses, claims, damages, liabilities and amounts paid in settlement incurred in connection with any claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, arising out of or related to such Indemnified Party’s service as a director, officer or representative of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or services performed by such Persons at the request of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries at or prior to the Effective Time, whether asserted or claimed prior to, at or after the Effective Time, including, for the avoidance of doubt, in connection with (x) the

Merger, the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the process and other events giving rise thereto, and (y) actions to enforce this provision or any other indemnification or advancement right of any Indemnified Party. In the event of any such action,

Parent and the Surviving Company will, and Parent will cause the Surviving Company to, cooperate with the Indemnified Party in the defense of any such action.

(b) For a period of six years following the Effective Time, Parent will cause the Surviving Company to maintain in effect the provisions in its certificate of incorporation and bylaws to the extent they provide for indemnification, advancement and reimbursement of expenses and exculpation of Indemnified Parties, as applicable, with respect to facts or circumstances occurring at or prior to the Effective Time, on the same basis as set forth in the Company Charter or Company Bylaws in effect on the date of this

Agreement, to the fullest extent permitted from time to time by applicable Law, which provisions will not be amended except as required by applicable Law or to make changes permitted by applicable Law that would enlarge the scope of the Indemnified Parties’ indemnification rights thereunder.

(c) Prior to the Effective Time, the Company may obtain and fully pay the premium for “tail” insurance policies for the extension of (i) the directors’ and officers’ liability coverage of the Company’s existing directors’ and officers’ insurance policies for the Indemnified Parties (and such other persons who may be insureds under such policies) and (ii) the Company’s existing fiduciary and

44

employment practices liability insurance policies, in each case for a claims reporting or discovery period of at least six years from and after the Effective Time from an insurance carrier with the same or better credit rating as the Company’s insurance carrier as of the date of this Agreement with respect to directors’ and officers’ liability insurance and fiduciary and employment practices liability insurance (collectively, “D&O Insurance”) with benefits, terms, conditions, retentions and levels of coverage that are at least as favorable to the Indemnified Parties (and such other persons who may be insureds under such policies) as the Company’s existing policies with respect to any matters that existed or occurred at or prior to the Effective Time (including in connection with this

Agreement or the transactions or actions contemplated hereby). Whether pursuant to such tail policy or otherwise, the Surviving

Company will continue to maintain in effect for a period of at least six years from and after the Effective Time D&O Insurance with benefits, terms, conditions, retentions and levels of coverage that are at least as favorable to the insureds as provided in the

Company’s existing policies as of the date of this Agreement, or the Surviving Company will use reasonable best efforts to purchase comparable D&O Insurance for such six-year period with benefits, terms, conditions, retentions and levels of coverage that are at least as favorable to the insureds as provided in the Company’s existing policies as of the date of this Agreement; provided, however, that in no event will the Surviving Company be required to expend for such policies pursuant to this sentence an annual premium amount in excess of 300% of the annual premiums currently paid by the Company for such insurance; and provided, further, that if the annual premiums of such insurance coverage exceed such amount, the Surviving Company will obtain a policy with the greatest coverage available for a cost not exceeding such amount.

(d) If the Surviving Company or any of their respective successors or assigns (i) consolidates with or merges into any other corporation or entity and is not the continuing or Surviving Company or entity of such consolidation or merger or (ii) transfers all or substantially all of its properties and assets to any individual, corporation or other entity, then, and in each such case, unless provided by operation of Law, proper provisions will be made so that the successors and assigns of the Surviving Company will assume all of the obligations set forth in this Section 5.11. This Section 5.11 may not be amended after the Effective Time in a manner as to adversely affect any Indemnified Party unless such Indemnified Party will have consented in writing to such amendment.

(e) The provisions of this Section 5.11 are intended to be for the benefit of, and will be enforceable by, each of the

Indemnified Parties, who are intended third-party beneficiaries of this Section 5.11 as of and following the Effective Time.

(f) The rights of the Indemnified Parties under this Section 5.11 will be in addition to any rights such Indemnified Parties may have under the Company Charter or Company Bylaws or comparable governing documents of the Company or any of its

Subsidiaries, or under any applicable Contracts or Laws. For a period of six years following the Effective Time, all rights to indemnification and exculpation from liabilities for acts or omissions occurring at or prior to the Effective Time and rights to advancement of expenses relating thereto now existing in favor of any Indemnified Party as provided in the Company Charter or

Company Bylaws or comparable governing documents of the Company and its Subsidiaries or any indemnification agreement between such Indemnified Party and the Company or any of its Subsidiaries will survive the Merger and will not be amended, repealed or otherwise modified in any manner that would adversely affect any right thereunder of any such Indemnified Party.

5.12 Takeover Statutes. If any takeover statute is or may become applicable to the Merger or the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement, the Company and the Company Board each will use reasonable best efforts to ensure that the Merger and the other transactions contemplated hereby may be consummated as promptly as practicable on the terms contemplated by this

Agreement and otherwise act to eliminate or minimize the effects of such Law on this Agreement, the Merger and the other transactions contemplated hereby.

45

5.13 Section 16 Matters. Parent and the Company shall take all steps reasonably necessary to cause the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and any other dispositions of equity securities of the Company (including derivative securities) or acquisitions of Parent equity securities (including derivative securities) in connection with this Agreement by each individual who is or will be subject to the reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act with respect to the Company, to be exempt under Rule 16b-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act.

5.14 Parent Vote. Parent will vote (or consent, by written action in lieu of a meeting, with respect to) all voting stock of Merger

Sub and all Company Common Stock owned of record or beneficially by Parent or Parent’s Subsidiaries in favor of the adoption of this Agreement by Merger Sub and the Company and the consummation by Merger Sub and the Company of the Merger and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

5.15 Company Stock Options; Company Units; Company ESPP.

(a) Company Stock Options. At least 16 days prior to the Effective Time (such period through the day immediately preceding the Effective Time, the “Option Notice Period”), the Company shall provide written notice to each holder of a thenoutstanding option to purchase Shares, whether vested or unvested (a “Company Stock Option”), whether granted under the Atmel

Corporation 2005 Stock Plan, the Newport Media, Inc. 2005 Stock Incentive Plan and RSU Sub-Plan or the Ozmo, Inc. 2005 Equity

Incentive Plan (together, the “Company Stock Plans”), that such Company Stock Option will, contingent on the occurrence of the

Effective Time, accelerate and become vested and exercisable in full as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, and such holder will have the right to exercise his or her Company Stock Option during the Option Notice Period. To the extent not exercised prior by the conclusion of the Option Notice Period, each Company Stock Option will be automatically “net-exercised” immediately prior to the Effective Time, with the exercise price and applicable withholding taxes paid by the withholding of Shares otherwise issuable to such holder upon the exercise of the Company Stock Option. Upon such exercise, the former holder of the Company Stock Option will be issued the net number of shares resulting from the “net exercise”, and such stockholder will thereafter be entitled to receive the Merger Consideration in respect of these Shares as provided in Article II.

(b) Company Units. At the Effective Time, each then-outstanding and unvested restricted stock unit, deferred stock unit, performance-based restricted stock unit or similar right held by an individual who will continue in service at the Effective Time, in each case representing a right to receive one Share, whether or not granted under the Company Stock Plans (a “Company Unit”), including each “performance share award” denominated in Company Units, will be assumed by Parent (such Company Unit, an

“Assumed Unit”) and converted into the right to receive, if as and when the Assumed Unit would otherwise have vested (taking into account, and without modification, any acceleration of vesting under the applicable award agreement or other Contract with the award holder), that number of shares of Parent Common Stock equal to the product obtained by multiplying (x) the number of Shares subject to such Assumed Unit immediately prior to the Effective Time by (y) $8.15 divided by the Average Parent Closing Price

(rounded down to the nearest whole share). Any Company Unit that is vested at the Effective Time (taking into account any acceleration of vesting under the applicable award agreement or other Contract with the award holder), but as to which the underlying

Share has not been issued by the Effective Time, will be issued as of immediately prior to the Effective Time and will be treated as outstanding Company Common Stock for purposes of Section 2.1 and Section 2.2, and shall receive the Merger Consideration as provided in Article II, subject to applicable tax withholding.

(c) Notwithstanding the terms of Section 5.15(a) or Section 5.15(b), to the extent that Parent determines that the assumption and conversion of a Company Unit as provided in Section 5.15(b), would violate, in respect of the holder thereof, the applicable Laws of a non-U.S. jurisdiction,

46

Parent may treat such Company Unit in a manner other than as prescribed by Section 5.15(b) so long as the holder of such Company

Unit receives the full value of the Merger Consideration (less applicable tax withholdings) in cash not later than the vesting date originally applicable to the corresponding Shares subject to such Company Unit (such Company Unit and the Assumed Units, the

“Assumed Equity Awards”). Parent and the Company shall agree at least 10 days prior to the Effective Time to the treatment of any

Company Unit that will be treated in a manner other than as prescribed by Section 5.15(b).

(d) Prior to the Effective Time, the Company will take all actions reasonably necessary to (i) terminate the Atmel

Corporation 2010 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “Company ESPP”) as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, (ii) provide that any “Offering Period” (as defined in the Company ESPP) in progress on the Closing Date will be shortened in accordance with

Section 19(c) of the Company ESPP, and the last day of each such Offering Period shall be the 10th Business Day prior to the

Closing Date (the “Final Purchase Date”), with purchases made on the Final Purchase Date contingent upon the Closing, and

(iii) avoid the commencement of any new Offering Period under the Company ESPP at or after the Final Purchase Date and prior to the earlier of the termination of this Agreement or the Effective Time. Any Shares acquired under the Company ESPP prior to or on the Final Purchase Date will be treated as outstanding Shares for purposes of Section 2.1 and Section 2.2.

(e) As soon as practicable following the Effective Time, but in no event later than 10 Business Days following the

Effective Time, Parent shall file a registration statement under the Securities Act on Form S-8 or another appropriate form (and use its reasonable best efforts to maintain the effectiveness thereof and maintain the current status of the prospectuses contained therein) relating to shares of Parent Common Stock issuable with respect to all Assumed Equity Awards, and shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such registration statement to remain in effect for so long as such Assumed Equity Awards remain outstanding. Prior to the Effective Time, Parent shall take all actions reasonably necessary so that Parent may assume, grant and convert the Assumed

Equity Awards at the Effective Time in compliance with applicable Laws.

(f) Parent shall cause the assumption of the Assumed Equity Awards to occur in a manner so as to remain exempt from or comply with Section 409A of the Code, and this Section 5.15 shall be construed consistent with such intent. Each payment with respect to an Assumed Equity Award as to which payments will be made in installments is and will be treated as a separate payment for purposes of Section 409A of the Code. As soon as reasonably practicable following the date of this Agreement, the Company (and the Company Board and any applicable committees thereof) and Parent (and the Parent Board and any applicable committees thereof) will take all actions and adopt such resolutions as may be required to give effect to and accomplish the transactions contemplated by this Section 5.15.

5.16 Company Stock Options and Company Unit Information. The Company will provide, within 10 days after the date hereof, as of the most recent reasonably practicable date, a complete and correct list of each outstanding Company Stock Option or Company

Unit, including the employee identification number of the grantee, the date of grant, the date of expiration, the number of shares of

Company Common Stock subject to such award as of such date, the exercise price, the vesting schedule and the number of shares of

Company Common Stock vested and unvested as of such date.

5.17 Stockholder Litigation. The parties to this Agreement shall cooperate and consult with one another in connection with any stockholder litigation against any of them or any of their respective directors or officers with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. In furtherance of and without in any way limiting the foregoing, each of the parties shall use its respective reasonable best efforts to prevail in such litigation so as to permit the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this

Agreement in the manner contemplated by this Agreement, as promptly as reasonably practicable.

47

Parent or any of its Subsidiaries undertaken in connection with the Merger (a “Financing”), upon request: (i) furnish the report of the

Company’s auditor on the most recently available audited consolidated financial statements of the Company and its Subsidiaries and use reasonable efforts to obtain the consent of such auditor to the use of such report in accordance with normal custom and practice and use reasonable efforts to cause such auditor to provide customary comfort letters to the underwriters, initial purchasers or placement agents, as applicable, in connection with any such Financing; (ii) furnish Parent and the Financing Sources with

Company will satisfy the foregoing requirement; (iii) furnish such additional customary and readily available financial statements, schedules or other financial data relating to the Company and its Subsidiaries as may be reasonably necessary and reasonably requested by Parent in writing to consummate any such Financing; (iv) to the extent required by any initial purchasers, underwriters or placement agents in connection with conducting customary diligence for any such Financing, provide direct contact between

(A) senior management and advisors, including auditors, of the Company and (B) the proposed Financing Sources or Parent’s auditors in connection with any such Financing, at reasonable times and upon reasonable advance notice; (v) reasonably assist Parent and the Financing Sources by reviewing and commenting on business projections and pro forma financial statements; (vi) to the extent such Financing is scheduled to close concurrently with the Effective Time, provide such customary information, documents, authorization letters and certificates, enter into definitive financing documents and take other reasonable actions that are or may be customary in connection with any such Financing (provided that such agreements, certificates and other documents entered into shall be conditioned upon, and shall not take effect prior to, the Effective Time); (vii) provide Parent with such customary and relevant information as is reasonably requested by Parent to allow Parent to prepare any necessary pledge or security agreements, certificates or other documents in connection with any such Financing and otherwise reasonably facilitate the pledging of, and granting, recording and perfection of security interests in share certificates, securities and other collateral, and obtaining surveys and title insurance as reasonably requested by Parent; provided that neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is required to enter into any such agreement, certificate or document, pledge any collateral or grant any lien or security interest or obtain a release of any existing lien or security interest prior to the Effective Time; and (viii) provide to the Financing Sources, at least five days prior to the closing date for such Financing, all documentation and other information with respect to the Company and its Subsidiaries that are required by regulatory authorities under the applicable “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including without limitation the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001, and requested by Parent or the Financing Sources at least 10 Business

Days prior to the closing date for such Financing.

48

(b) The Company shall (i) obtain customary payoff letters from third-party lenders and trustees with respect to the Retired

Company Indebtedness and (ii) deliver or cause to be delivered such payoff letters to Parent at the Effective Time. At the Effective

Time, subject to Parent making available necessary funds to do so, the Company shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, permanently (A) terminate the credit facilities of the Company requested by Parent to be so terminated, if and to the extent such facilities are specified by Parent to the Company no later than 15 Business Days prior to the Effective Time, and all related contracts to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a party (collectively, the “Retired Company Indebtedness”), and (B) cause to be released any Liens on its assets relating to such Retired Company Indebtedness.

(c) Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 5.18 or any other provision of this Agreement, nothing in this

Agreement will require the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to (i) waive or amend any terms of this Agreement or agree to pay any fees or reimburse any expenses prior to the Effective Time for which it has not received prior reimbursement from Parent, (ii) enter into any definitive agreement that is effective prior to the Effective Time, (iii) give any indemnities that are effective prior to the

Effective Time, (iv) take any action that could unreasonably interfere with the ongoing operations of the Company or its Subsidiaries or create a risk of damage or destruction to any property or assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or (v) provide any information or take any action that will conflict with or violate its organizational documents or any applicable legal requirement or would result in a violation or breach of, or default under, any material Contract to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a party or would result in the waiver of a legal privilege. In addition, no action, liability or obligation of the Company, any of its

Subsidiaries or any of their respective Representatives pursuant to any certificate, agreement, arrangement, document or instrument relating to any such Financing will be effective until the Effective Time, and neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries will be required to take any action pursuant to any certificate, agreement, arrangement, document or instrument (including being an issuer or other obligor with respect to any such Financing) contemplated by this Section 5.18 that is not contingent on the occurrence of the

Closing or that must be effective prior to the Effective Time. Nothing in this Agreement will require (A) any officer or Representative of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to deliver any certificate or opinion or take any other action pursuant to this Section 5.18 or any other provision of this Agreement that could reasonably be expected to result in personal liability to such officer or

(d) All non-public or other confidential information provided by the Company or any of its Representatives pursuant to this

Agreement, and any aggrieved party will be entitled to all rights and remedies at law or in equity, including the right of the aggrieved party to seek the benefit of its bargain (in the case of the Company, the benefit expected by the Company Stockholders).

(including the enacting, issuing, entry or promulgation of Orders or Laws or instituting of proceedings) by any Specified

MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY TO ACQUIRE ATMEL

Creates Microcontroller, Analog and IOT Powerhouse

Immediately accretive to non-GAAP earnings per share

Estimated $170 million in synergies in fiscal year 2019 that begins on April 1, 2018

Chandler, Arizona and San Jose, California – January 19, 2016 – Microchip Technology Incorporated (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, and Atmel Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML) today announced that Microchip has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Atmel for $8.15 per share in a combination of cash and

Microchip common stock. The acquisition price represents a total equity value of about $3.56 billion, and a total enterprise value of about $3.40 billion, after excluding Atmel’s cash and investments net of debt on its balance sheet of approximately $155.0 million at

December 31, 2015.

“We are delighted to welcome Atmel employees to Microchip and look forward to closing the transaction and working together to realize the benefits of a combined team pursuing a unified strategy. As the semiconductor industry consolidates, Microchip continues to execute a highly successful consolidation strategy with a string of acquisitions that have helped to double our revenue growth rate compared to our organic revenue growth rate over the last few years. The Atmel acquisition is the latest chapter of our growth strategy and will add further operational and customer scale to Microchip,” said Steve Sanghi, President and CEO of Microchip.

“Microchip and Atmel have a strong tradition of innovation, stretching across microcontroller, analog, touch, connectivity and memory solutions. Joining forces and combining our product portfolios will offer our customers a richer set of solution options to enable innovative and competitive products for the markets they serve,” said Ganesh Moorthy, COO of Microchip.

“Our Board of Directors determined, after consultation with our financial advisor and outside legal counsel, that the transaction with

Microchip is a superior proposal for Atmel’s stockholders under the

Microchip Technology to Acquire Atmel

Page 2

terms of our merger agreement with Dialog Semiconductor plc that we terminated today. Under the Microchip transaction, Atmel stockholders will receive a much higher cash consideration per share compared to the Dialog deal, as well as the opportunity for further upside through the ownership of stock of Microchip,” said Steven Laub, President and CEO of Atmel.

Concurrent with this announcement, Microchip announced that its Board of Directors has authorized an increase in the existing share repurchase program to 15.0 million shares of common stock from the approximately 11.4 million shares remaining under the prior authorization. Under this program, in the next several months, Microchip intends to repurchase the approximate number of shares it issues in the Atmel acquisition, which is expected to result in the transaction having the accretive effects of a cash transaction from a financial perspective.

Following the closing, the transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to Microchip’s non-GAAP earnings per share. Based on currently available information, Microchip anticipates achieving an estimated $170 million in synergies from cost savings and incremental revenue growth in fiscal year 2019 that begins on April 1, 2018.

The transaction has been approved by the Board of Directors of each company and is expected to close in the second quarter of calendar year 2016, subject to approval by Atmel’s stockholders, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. No approval by Microchip’s stockholders is required in connection with the transaction. The transaction is not subject to any financing conditions.

Transaction Details

In the transaction, stockholders of Atmel will receive $7.00 per share in cash and $1.15 per share in Microchip common stock, valued at the average closing price for a share of Microchip common stock for the ten most recent trading days ending on the last trading day prior to the closing, with the maximum number of Microchip shares to be issued in the transaction being 13.0 million. To the extent that the number of Microchip shares issuable would exceed 13.0 million, the cash consideration per Atmel share will be increased such that the value of the combined cash and stock consideration will remain at $8.15 per share (as valued based upon the average closing price described in the previous sentence). Microchip expects to fund the cash portion of the purchase price through a combination of cash on its balance sheet and borrowings under its existing credit facility.
