MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, announced today that on April 21, 2020 the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) granted early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act) with respect to MaxLinear’s pending acquisition of Intel’s Home Gateway Platform Division.
As previously announced on April 6, 2020, MaxLinear and its wholly owned subsidiary have entered into a definitive agreement with Intel Corporation under which MaxLinear would, subject to customary closing conditions, acquire Intel’s Home Gateway Platform Division assets in an all-cash, asset transaction valued at $150 million. The Home Gateway Platform Division comprises Wi-Fi Access Points, Ethernet and Home Gateway SoC products deployed across operator and retail markets. Termination of the HSR Act waiting period satisfies one of the conditions to closing of the proposed transaction. The closing of the transaction is also subject to other closing conditions, including local work councils. Subject to the satisfaction of these other conditions, the transaction is currently expected to close in the third quarter of 2020.
