Item 8.01. Other Events.

On September 21, 2023, Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. (the “Company”) allocated a $250,000,000 tranche (the “Incremental Term Loans”) of term loans maturing in 2030, the proceeds of which are intended to be used to refinance all outstanding term loans (the “Existing Term Loans”) under the Term Loan Credit Agreement dated as of September 30, 2020, by and among the Company, Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, as administrative agent and collateral agent, and the other agents, arrangers and lenders from time to time party thereto (such refinancing, the “Credit Agreement Refinancing”) and to finance the previously announced merger of Silicon Structures LLC with and into Crocus Technology International Corp. (the “Merger”).

The Incremental Term Loans are expected to be documented as an incremental amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s Credit Agreement, dated as of June 21, 2023, by and among the Company, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., as administrative agent and collateral agent, and the other agents, arrangers and lenders from time to time party thereto, and are expected to amortize at a rate of 1.00% per annum. It is expected that the Amendment will provide that the initial margin applicable to the Incremental Term Loans will be 2.75% for term SOFR-based loans and 1.75% for base rate loans.

The foregoing transactions are subject to execution of the definitive documentation with respect thereto and other customary conditions. The Credit Agreement Refinancing with the Incremental Term Loans is anticipated to close concurrently with the Merger. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully complete the transactions, on the terms described above, or at all.

The foregoing may contain forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, our financing plans and the details thereof, including the proposed use of proceeds therefrom, the expected timing of the Credit Agreement Refinancing with the Incremental Term Loans and the consummation of the Merger and the ability to close such transaction.

These forward-looking statements are based upon the current expectations and beliefs of management and are provided for the purpose of providing additional information about such expectations and beliefs, and readers are cautioned that these statements may not be appropriate for other purposes. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the risks and uncertainties discussed in the Company’s most recent annual and quarterly reports and detailed from time to time in the Company’s other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which risks and uncertainties are incorporated herein by reference.
