Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Other Events, Financial Statements


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Agreement and Plan of Merger

On June 9, 2014, Analog Devices, Inc. (the "Company") and its newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary, BBAC Corp. (the "Purchaser"), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Hittite Microwave Corporation ("Hittite"), pursuant to which the Purchaser will commence a cash tender offer (the "Offer") to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Hittite, par value $0.01 per share, at a price of $78.00 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest (such amount, the "Offer Price"). Following the consummation of the Offer, the Purchaser will merge with and into Hittite (the "Merger"), and all shares of Hittite common stock not acquired in the Offer (other than shares held by holders who have properly exercised their appraisal rights under Section 262 of the Delaware General Corporation Law) will convert into the right to receive the Offer Price. Hittite will survive the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Merger Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants by the parties.

Under the Merger Agreement, the Purchaser is obligated to commence the Offer within 10 business days after the date of the Merger Agreement. The Offer will expire 20 business days after its commencement, subject to extension in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement.

The obligations of the Company and the Purchaser to accept for payment and pay for the shares of Hittite common stock tendered in the Offer and to complete the Merger are subject to customary conditions, including, among other things:
(i) at least a majority of the outstanding shares of Hittite common stock (assuming that shares issuable in respect of vested Hittite restricted stock units and options are outstanding) shall have been validly tendered in accordance with the terms of the Offer and not properly withdrawn, (ii) the expiration or termination of applicable waiting periods under antitrust laws in the United States and Germany, (iii) the absence of injunctions or other restraints prohibiting the transactions, (iv) the accuracy of representations and warranties made by Hittite in the Merger Agreement, (v) compliance by Hittite with its covenants in the Merger Agreement and (vi) the absence of a material adverse effect on Hittite. The Company's and the Purchaser's obligations are not subject to a financing condition.

Under the Merger Agreement, the Company is entitled to receive a termination fee of $86.5 million if (i) the Company terminates the Merger Agreement due to a change in the Hittite board's recommendation; (ii) the Company terminates the Merger Agreement due to an intentional breach in any material respect of any of the non-solicitation obligations in the Merger Agreement, (iii) Hittite terminates the Merger Agreement to accept a superior proposal; or (iv) Hittite receives an alternative acquisition proposal prior to termination of the Merger Agreement and the Merger Agreement is terminated by either party because the outside date occurs or Hittite has breached its representations, warranties or covenants and, within one year after such termination, Hittite enters into a definitive agreement to consummate, or consummates, any alternative acquisition proposal.


The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Merger Agreement contains representations, warranties, covenants and other terms, provisions and conditions that the Company and Hittite made to each other as of specific dates. The assertions embodied therein were made solely for purposes of the Merger Agreement, and may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by the Company and Hittite in connection with negotiating their respective terms. Moreover, they may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality that may be different from what may be viewed as material to stockholders, or may have been used for the purpose of allocating risk between the Company and Hittite rather than establishing matters as facts. For the foregoing reasons, no person should rely on such representations, warranties, covenants or other terms, provisions or conditions as statements of factual information at the time they were made or otherwise.

Commitment Letter

Also on June 9, 2014 and in connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement, the Company executed a commitment letter (the "Commitment Letter") with Credit Suisse AG and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC (collectively, "Credit Suisse"), pursuant to which Credit Suisse has committed to provide the Company with a 90-day term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $2 billion to fund, in part, the Company's acquisition of Hittite pursuant to the Merger Agreement. Amounts drawn under the facility will bear interest, at the Company's option, at LIBOR plus 1.00% or a rate equal to the highest of (a) the prime rate, (b) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50% and (c) 30-day LIBOR plus 1.00%. The Company expects that a subsidiary of the Company will assume the loan under the facility and repay it out of existing cash balances on or before maturity. The foregoing description of the Commitment Letter does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Commitment Letter, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements, which address a variety of subjects including, for example, the expected timetable for the closing of the transaction between the Company and Hittite, the expected benefits and synergies of the transaction, including the effect of the transaction on the Company's non-GAAP earnings, the Company's expected product development and technical advances resulting from the transaction, the availability of debt financing for the transaction and the Company's guidance for the remainder of fiscal year 2014.

Such statements are based on the Company's current expectations and are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements. The following important factors and uncertainties, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements: the closing of the transaction is subject to the tender of shares by Hittite stockholders representing at least a majority of the outstanding shares (assuming that shares issuable in respect of vested Hittite restricted stock units and options are outstanding); the receipt of regulatory approvals, and other closing conditions, the non-satisfaction of which may delay or prevent the closing of the transaction; the transaction may involve unexpected costs; the expected benefits of the transaction may not be achieved in a timely manner, or at all; Hittite's business may not be


successfully integrated with the Company's following the closing; and disruption from the transaction may adversely affect Hittite's relationships with its customers, suppliers or employees. For additional information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, please refer to both the Company's and Hittite's filings with the SEC, including the risk factors contained in each of the Company's and Hittite's most recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Forward-looking statements represent management's current expectations and are inherently uncertain. Except as required by law, the Company does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements made by it.
