Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On April 1, 2024, Andrew G. Dunn notified the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. (the “Company”) of his decision to resign from the Board and as a member of the Board’s Research & Development and Strategy Committee, effective April 1, 2024. Mr. Dunn’s resignation was a result of OEP SKNA, L.P.'s (“OEP”) reduction in ownership that caused OEP to beneficially own, in the aggregate, less than five percent (5%) of the Company’s common stock and not the result of any disagreement between Mr. Dunn and the Company or its management on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.

On April 3, 2024, at the recommendation of the Board’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee (“NCGC”) and in accordance with the Amended and Restated Stockholders Agreement, dated as of June 16, 2022, by and among the Company, OEP and Sanken Electric Co., Ltd. (the “Stockholders Agreement”), the Board took the following actions, each of which was effective April 3, 2024: (i) elected Jennie M. Raubacher to the Board as a Class III Director, to serve until the Company’s 2026 annual meeting of shareholders and until her successor is duly elected and qualified, and (ii) appointed Ms. Raubacher to serve on the Board’s Audit Committee.

The Board has determined that Ms. Raubacher qualifies as an independent director pursuant to Rule 10A-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market. The Board has also determined that Ms. Raubacher qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” as defined by the applicable Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulations.

Ms. Raubacher was elected to the Board to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Dunn’s resignation in accordance with the terms of Section 2(c) of the Stockholders Agreement upon the recommendation of the NCGC, which automatically took on certain of OEP’s rights and benefits following OEP’s reduction in ownership that caused OEP to beneficially own, in the aggregate, less than five percent (5%) or more of all issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock.

In connection with her appointment, the Company entered into an indemnification agreement with Ms. Raubacher providing for the indemnification of and advancement of expenses permitted by Delaware law for claims, suits or proceedings arising out of a director’s service to the Company.

Ms. Raubacher will receive the same fees for her service as the Company’s other eligible directors and members of the Audit Committee of the Board, which fees were disclosed in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the SEC on June 21, 2023. Annual cash compensation and restricted stock awards will be pro-rated from the date of Ms. Raubacher’s election to the Board.

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

A copy of the Company’s press release announcing the election of Ms. Raubacher to the Board is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

The information set forth in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
