ISSI and Uphill Agree on $21.00 per Share Price for Acquisition of ISSI

ISSI Special Meeting of Stockholders to be held on June 19, 2015

MILPITAS, Calif., June 11, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (ISSI), a global fabless semiconductor company, today announced that it has entered into a further amendment to its previously announced merger agreement with Uphill Investment Co ("Uphill").  As a result of the amendment, the merger consideration was increased to $21.00 per share in cash, from the $20.00 per share in cash pursuant to the Agreement of Merger dated as of March 12, 2015, as previously amended (the "Uphill Agreement").  ISSI also announced that its special meeting of stockholders to consider approval of the Uphill acquisition and related matters will be held on June 19, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. local time, at the offices of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C., 650 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto, California 94304.  ISSI stockholders of record as of the close of business on April 20, 2015 are entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the special meeting.

The ISSI Board of Directors continues to recommend that ISSI's stockholders vote FOR the adoption of the Uphill Agreement.   

ISSI and Uphill amended the Uphill Agreement after ISSI announced yesterday that it had agreed to terms with Cypress Semiconductor to be acquired for a cash purchase price of $20.25 per share.  After considering that the existing offer from Cypress had a lower price than the $21.00 per share provided by the amended Uphill Agreement, the ISSI Board has determined that the proposal from Cypress no longer constitutes, and would not be reasonably expected to lead to a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Uphill Agreement).
