MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:MTSI) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 24, 2019, MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (the Company), MACOM Wireless Cayman Limited (MACOM Cayman) and MACOM Wireless (HK) Limited (the MACOM HK), both wholly-owned, indirect subsidiaries of the Company, entered into a share purchase agreement (the Share Purchase Agreement) with Goertek (HongKong) Co., Limited (Goertek), to which MACOM Cayman and Goertek will form, upon closing of the Transaction (as defined below), a joint venture (the JV) for purposes of supplying, marketing and distributing Gallium-Nitride (GaN)-on-Silicon-based RF Power components into Chinas 5G basestation market.
The Company had previously, through MACOM Cayman, provided to MACOM HK a non-exclusive license (the License Agreement) to certain of its intellectual property rights to enable MACOM HK to conduct the proposed business of the JV, in exchange for sales-based royalties. In connection with the entry into the Share Purchase Agreement, the parties also negotiated certain modifications to the License Agreement to a side agreement (the Side Agreement) to be effective at the closing of the Transaction. The Company will retain rights vis–vis the JV with respect to GaN-on-Silicon products outside of the China market.
Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Share Purchase Agreement, MACOM Cayman will sell to Goertek 51% of the issued ordinary shares of MACOM HK owned by MACOM Cayman in exchange for total consideration of up to $134.6 million, including $30.0 million at closing and up to $95.0 million in potential milestone payments plus accrued interest thereon (the Transaction). MACOM Cayman will retain a 49% equity interest in MACOM HK. Furthermore, each of the Company and Goertek shall loan MACOM HK $25.0 million, to and subject to the conditions set forth in the Share Purchase Agreement, to be used by MACOM HK for general corporate purposes. Under the Share Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to guarantee the obligations of MACOM Cayman thereunder. The Company expects the Transaction to close in the second half of calendar 2019, subject to certain closing conditions, including the receipt of anti-trust approval from Chinas State Administration for Market Regulation.
At the closing of the Transaction, MACOM Cayman and Goertek have agreed to enter into a members agreement and to amend and restate the articles of association of MACOM HK, which will govern the operation and management of MACOM HK, as well as various other ancillary agreements, to which the Company, or affiliates thereof, will be entitled to royalties and distributions from the JV, which are expected to provide the Company with up to 60% of the economic value over time created by the JV, depending on the JVs financial performance.
The foregoing description does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete texts of the Share Purchase Agreement, the License Agreement and the Side Agreement, copies of which the Company intends to file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as exhibits to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 28, 2019.
