On March 2, 2020 (EST), Kyocera Corporation ('Kyocera') commenced an all-cash tender offer (the 'Tender Offer') pursuant to which it has offered to purchase all the outstanding shares of common stock of AVX Corporation ('AVX') not owned by Kyocera for $21.75 per share via Arch Merger Sub Inc. (the 'Offeror'), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyocera formed for the purpose of implementing the Tender Offer.

The Tender Offer will expire one minute following 11:59 p.m. (12:00 midnight) on March 27, 2020 (EST), unless the offer is terminated earlier or the offer period is extended.

Kyocera is conducting the Tender Offer pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger concerning the transaction dated February 21, 2020, among Kyocera, the Offeror and AVX and an Offer to Purchase dated March 2, 2020 and related Letter of Transmittal and Notice of Guaranteed Delivery. Promptly following the consummation of the Tender Offer, the Offeror will merge with and into AVX, with AVX as the surviving company in the merger, and AVX will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyocera.
