This Current Report on Form 8-K is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of common stock of Hittite Microwave Corporation (Hittite).

These documents will contain important information about the Company, Hittite, the Offer and related matters. Investors and security holders are urged to read each of these documents carefully when they are available. Investors and security holders will be able to obtain free copies of the Tender Offer Statement, the Tender Offer Solicitation/Recommendation Statement and other documents filed with the SEC by the Company and Hittite through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov.

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements, which address a variety of subjects including, for example, the expected timetable for the closing of the transaction between the Company and Hittite, the expected benefits and synergies of the transaction, including the effect of the transaction on the Companys non-GAAP earnings, the Companys expected product development and technical advances resulting from the transaction, the availability of debt financing for the transaction and the Companys guidance for the remainder of fiscal year 2014. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Companys beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on the Companys current expectations and are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements. The following important factors and uncertainties, among others, could cause
actual results to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements: the closing of the transaction is subject to the tender of shares by Hittite stockholders representing at least a majority of the outstanding shares (assuming that shares issuable in respect of vested Hittite restricted stock units and options are outstanding); the receipt of regulatory approvals, and other closing conditions, the non-satisfaction of which may delay or prevent the closing of the transaction; the transaction may involve unexpected costs; the expected benefits of the transaction may not be achieved in a timely manner, or at all; Hittites business may not be successfully integrated with the Companys following the closing; and disruption from the transaction may adversely affect Hittites relationships with its customers, suppliers or employees. For additional information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, please refer to both the Companys and Hittites filings with the SEC, including the risk factors contained in each of the Companys and Hittites most recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Forward-looking statements represent managements current expectations and are inherently uncertain. Except as required by law, the Company does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements made by it.
