Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Overview of the Proposed Transaction with Brightpoint

On December 18, 2006, CellStar Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("CellStar"), entered into a definitive agreement (the "Brightpoint Agreement") with a wholly owned subsidiary of Brightpoint, Inc., an Indiana corporation ("Brightpoint"), providing for the sale of substantially all of CellStar's United States and Miami-based Latin American operations and for the buyer to assume certain liabilities related to those operations. CellStar's operations in Mexico and Chile and other businesses or obligations of CellStar Corporation are excluded from the proposed transaction.

The Boards of Directors of both CellStar and Brightpoint have unanimously approved the proposed transaction set forth in the Brightpoint Agreement. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, the buyer will pay $88 million in cash to CellStar, subject to adjustment based on net assets. The closing of the proposed transaction is expected to occur in late March or early April of 2007. The Brightpoint Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, covenants, and indemnities, including prohibitions on CellStar's ability to solicit other proposals to acquire CellStar, furnish information to other parties, or enter into discussions with other parties regarding an acquisition of CellStar except under certain circumstances. The proposed transaction is subject to certain closing conditions set forth in the Brightpoint Agreement, including approval by CellStar's stockholders and certain regulatory approvals.

The Brightpoint Agreement contains certain termination rights for both CellStar and Brightpoint and provides that upon termination of the Brightpoint Agreement under specified circumstances, either CellStar or Brightpoint may be required to reimburse the other for its out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the proposed transaction. The Brightpoint Agreement further provides that upon termination of the Brightpoint Agreement under specified circumstances CellStar may be required to pay Brightpoint a termination fee of $3,080,000 plus expenses.

CellStar has filed a copy of the Brightpoint Agreement as Exhibit 2.1 to this current report on Form 8-K. You are encouraged to read the Brightpoint Agreement for a more complete understanding of the transaction. The foregoing description of the Brightpoint Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Brightpoint Agreement.
