"We believe the business combination with Peraso will provide substantial opportunities for our business across expanded high-growth markets," stated Dan Lewis, MoSys' Chief Executive Officer. "The combination will broaden our product lines, add operating scale and unlock potential selling synergies across common customers. Together, the company will be uniquely positioned to target high-growth opportunities in 5G, as well as telecom and data networks, and provide significantly expanded growth prospects beyond what MoSys can achieve as a standalone company. It is important to note that completion of the business combination requires that stockholders vote in support of both the business combination with Peraso, as well as for approval of amendment to our 2019 Stock Incentive Plan to retain and incentivize key employees of the combined company."

MoSys stockholders as of the close of business on October 14, 2021, the record date for the Special Meeting, are eligible to vote at and attend the virtual Special Meeting. The MoSys board of directors has recommended that the MoSys stockholders vote "FOR" each of the proposals. To successfully close the business combination, MoSys stockholder approval for the business combination is needed by a majority of voted shares.

  • The MoSys board of directors considered alternatives and strategies available to MoSys and determined that entering into the Arrangement Agreement with Peraso was in the best interests of MoSys and its stockholders.
