Engaged to explore strategic alternatives for the Company, Cypress facilitated and managed a competitive sale process that led to a negotiated transaction with Mercury Computer Systems. Mercury agreed to pay $14.80 per share in cash for each of the outstanding shares of Micronetics, representing a premium of 97% over Micronetics’ closing price one day prior to the announcement of $7.49 and a 154% premium over Micronetics’ unaffected closing price.
