Microchip Technology to Acquire Atmel Corporation


Combined Company Will Offer a Vast Array of Microcontroller Options and Solutions


Microchip Technology Incorporated and Atmel Corporation have 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 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.
