SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ:MXIM) ("Maxim") today announced the successful completion of Maxim's acquisition of Volterra Semiconductor Corporation ("Volterra").

Volterra's high-current, high-performance, and high-density power management solutions provide the best power and density ratio available for the server, storage, cloud computing, communications, and networking markets. Volterra's portfolio of highly integrated products enables better performance, smaller form factors, enhanced scalability, improved system management, and lower total cost of ownership.

"Maxim Integrated is known for its highly integrated solutions. With Volterra, we will strengthen our position in the enterprise and communications markets," said Tunc Doluca, Maxim's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We add a very talented team and leading-edge proprietary technology in high-current power management solutions, which further diversifies our business model."

The Volterra team will build upon Maxim's scale and market leadership to expand Maxim's ability to deliver innovative and differentiated products to its customers. Maxim remains committed to providing current and future customers with advanced technology solutions and world-class quality and support. Joining forces with the innovative Maxim team will present exciting new opportunities for Volterra's talented employees. At $9 billion, power management is currently the largest and fastest-growing product segment in the analog market, according to Databeans. Maxim offers a broad portfolio of products for power conversion: switching regulators, linear regulators, charge pumps, digital Point-of-Load (POL) converters, and Power Management Integrated Circuits (PMICs), primarily in medium-to-low current applications. Volterra's high-current technology expands Maxim's position in this growing segment of the analog market.

The acquisition was effected through a tender offer (the "Offer") by Maxim's wholly owned subsidiary, Victory Merger Sub, Inc. (the "Purchaser"), under which the Purchaser sought to purchase all of the outstanding shares of Volterra Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:VLTR) ("Volterra") for a price of $23 per share in cash, without interest (less any applicable withholding taxes).  The Offer was followed by the merger of the Purchaser with and into Volterra.

The Offer expired at 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2013, and a total of 22,225,845 shares were tendered into and not withdrawn from the Offer, representing approximately 86.23% of Volterra's outstanding shares. Additionally, 570,064 shares were tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery. The condition to the Offer that at least a majority of the outstanding shares of Volterra's common stock be validly tendered and not properly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer was satisfied, and, accordingly, all shares that were validly tendered and not properly withdrawn were accepted for payment and Maxim promptly paid for all such tendered shares in accordance with the terms of the Offer. As a result of its acceptance of the shares tendered in the Offer and given that it was determined that Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware was applicable to the merger, Maxim had sufficient voting power to acquire all of the remaining outstanding shares of Volterra's common stock by means of a merger of the Purchaser with and into Volterra without the affirmative vote of Volterra's other stockholders.   

As a result of the merger, Volterra became a wholly owned subsidiary of Maxim. In the merger, each remaining share of Volterra that was not validly tendered in the Offer was cancelled and converted into the right to receive the same $23 per share in cash that was paid in the Offer. The common stock of Volterra ceased to be traded on the NASDAQ  Global Select Market at the close of market on October 1, 2013, and will no longer be listed. Maxim will mail to all  Volterra stockholders who did not tender their shares in the tender offer information regarding the merger.
