II-VI Incorporated Successfully Completes Tender Offer for Shares of ANADIGICS, Inc.

WARREN, N.J., March 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) (“ANADIGICS” or the “Company”), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced the successful completion of the tender offer by a wholly-owned acquisition subsidiary of II-VI Incorporated (Nasdaq:IIVI) for all outstanding shares of common stock of ANADIGICS for $0.85 per share in cash (the “Offer”).

The Offer and withdrawal rights expired at 11:59 P.M. (New York City time) on March 11, 2016. Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the depositary for the tender offer, has indicated preliminarily that approximately 47,782,407 shares were validly tendered in the Offer and not validly withdrawn (not including approximately 4,218,728 shares delivered through notices of guaranteed delivery), representing approximately 52.92% of the outstanding common stock of ANADIGICS.

II-VI’s wholly owned subsidiary, Regulus Acquisition Sub, Inc. (“Regulus”), will accept for payment in accordance with the terms of the Offer all shares that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer (including all shares delivered through notices of guaranteed delivery), and payment for such shares will be made promptly, in accordance with the terms of the Offer.

II-VI and Regulus expect to effect a merger of Regulus with and into ANADIGICS without a vote or meeting of ANADIGICS shareholders promptly following acceptance of and payment for the tendered shares. The merger is expected to be completed on or about March 14, 2016. In the merger, each outstanding share of ANADIGICS common stock not tendered and purchased in the Offer (other than those as to which holders properly exercise dissenters rights, if any) will be converted into the right to receive the same $0.85 per share price, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, that was paid in the tender offer. As a result of the merger, ANADIGICS will become a wholly owned subsidiary of II-VI. Following the merger, ANADIGICS’s common stock will be delisted and cease to be traded on Nasdaq.
