Tokyo Electron Limited and FSI International, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSII), announced today that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which TEL will acquire FSI for $6.20 per share in cash, or an aggregate equity purchase price of approximately $252.5 million.

Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement between TEL and FSI, TEL, through an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, will commence a cash tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of FSI’s common stock for $6.20 per share. The closing of the tender offer is subject to customary terms and conditions, including the tender of a number of shares that constitutes at least a majority of FSI’s outstanding shares of common stock, on a fully diluted basis, and receipt of required regulatory approvals, including expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act. The agreement also provides for the parties to effect, subject to customary conditions, a merger following the completion of the tender offer that would result in all shares not tendered in the tender offer being converted into the right to receive $6.20 per share in cash. TEL will finance the acquisition from its existing cash resources.

Goldman Sachs is serving as exclusive financial adviser to Tokyo Electron in connection with the acquisition, and Jones Day is its legal adviser. Barclays is serving as exclusive financial adviser to FSI in connection with the acquisition, and Faegre Baker Daniels LLP is its legal adviser.
