Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 17, 2020, Synaptics Incorporated (the "Company") entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") by and among the Company, Falcon Merger Sub, Inc., a Washington corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company ("Merger Sub"), DisplayLink Corporation, a Washington corporation ("DisplayLink"), certain holders of equity securities of DisplayLink that become parties to the Merger Agreement by execution of a Joinder Agreement (the "Sellers") and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, a Colorado limited liability company, solely in its capacity as the representative, agent and attorney-in-fact for the Sellers. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into DisplayLink (the "Merger") at the effective time of the Merger (the "Effective Time") and DisplayLink will continue as the surviving entity of the Merger following the Effective Time (the "Surviving Corporation"). The aggregate merger consideration will equal $305 million, subject to (i) an increase for DisplayLink's estimated cash and cash equivalents at the closing of the Merger (the "Closing"), (ii) a decrease for DisplayLink's estimated indebtedness outstanding immediately prior to the Closing, (iii) a decrease for the unpaid portion as of the Closing of certain transaction expenses incurred by DisplayLink, and (iv) an increase or decrease equal to the amount that the estimated working capital of DisplayLink exceeds or falls short, respectively, of a certain specified target working capital set forth in the Merger Agreement. Such aggregate merger consideration is further subject to a final, post-closing purchase price adjustment, which adjustment is supported by a purchase price adjustment escrow fund.

At the Effective Time, each share of (i) capital stock of DisplayLink (other than shares of Series D-2 Preferred Stock of DisplayLink), other than shares held by DisplayLink in its treasury, by its subsidiaries or by the Company or Merger Sub immediately prior to the Effective Time, or shares held by stockholders of DisplayLink that have validly exercised their appraisal rights in accordance with applicable law (the "Excluded Shares"), will be canceled, extinguished and automatically converted into the right to receive the Common Per Share Amount (as defined in the Merger Agreement), and (ii) Series D-2 Preferred Stock of DisplayLink, other than Excluded Shares, will be canceled, extinguished and automatically converted into the right to receive the Series D-2 Per Share Amount (as defined in the Merger Agreement). Each outstanding DisplayLink Eligible Option (as defined in the Merger Agreement) will be canceled at the Effective Time for consideration pursuant to the Merger Agreement.

The transaction is expected to close in the Company's first fiscal quarter of 2021, subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions. Each party's obligation to consummate the transaction pursuant to the Merger Agreement is subject to a number of conditions as set forth therein, including, among others (i) the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the parties (subject, in certain cases, materiality qualifiers), (ii) performance in all material respects by each of the parties of its obligations and covenants, (iii) procurement of certain specified third-party consents, and (iv) absence of any material adverse effect. The Merger Agreement also contains certain termination rights for both the Company and DisplayLink.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is expected to be filed with the Company's next quarterly report in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Subject to the terms of the Merger Agreement, the representations and warranties set forth in the Merger Agreement were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Merger Agreement and the Merger Agreement (i) should not be treated as categorical statements of fact, but rather as a way of allocating the risk to one of the parties if those statements prove to be inaccurate, (ii) may have been qualified in the Merger Agreement by disclosures that were made to the other parties in accordance with the Merger Agreement, (iii) may apply contractual standards of "materiality" that are different from "materiality" under applicable securities laws, and (iv) were made only as of the dates set specified in the Merger Agreement.
