Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each share of Anaren common stock outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger on the Closing Date was cancelled and converted automatically into the right to receive $28.00 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes (other than any such shares held by Anaren or its subsidiaries, Parent, Merger Sub, or any other wholly owned subsidiary of Parent, which shares were cancelled and retired without any conversion and no payment or distribution will be made with respect to such shares). At the effective time of the Merger on the Closing Date, holders of Anaren common stock immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger ceased to have any rights as shareholders of Anaren (other than the right to receive the merger consideration).

The Rights Agreement (including amendments thereto) was filed with the SEC by Anaren as Exhibit 4.1 to its Form 8-A12B on April 27, 2011 and Exhibit 4.2 to its Form 8-A/12 B/A on November 4, 2013. Shareholders of Anaren are not entitled to appraisal of their shares of Anaren common stock under applicable New York law.

At the effective time of the Merger on the Closing Date, (i) each outstanding option to purchase shares of Anaren common stock was automatically deemed to be exercised on a net share basis (to cover both the exercise price and any withholding taxes associated with the deemed exercise) and shares of Anaren common stock resulting from the net exercise were deemed issued, and immediately after such deemed issuance, such shares of Anaren common stock were automatically cancelled in exchange for a per share payment equal to $28.00 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes and (ii) each outstanding restricted stock award was automatically 100% vested and cancelled in exchange for a per share payment equal to $28.00 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.

As a result of the consummation of the Merger on the Closing Date, a change of control of Anaren occurred and Anaren became a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. Parent is controlled by an investment fund managed by Veritas Capital, a New York-based private equity firm ("Veritas Capital"). The total consideration paid by Parent in connection with the change in control transaction was approximately $383 million. The funds used to consummate the Merger are from (i) equity contributions by an investment fund affiliated with or controlled by Veritas Capital, (ii) equity contributions by certain co-investors and (iii) proceeds received in connection with debt financing provided by certain third party lenders.
