Under the terms of the merger agreement, IDT will launch a tender offer to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common stock of GigPeak for $3.08 per share. The boards of directors of both companies have unanimously approved the terms of the agreement and the GigPeak board has resolved to recommend that stockholders accept the offer.

IDT noted that GigPeak's optical interface products have been widely adopted by major companies in the communications, cloud data centre, and military/aviation markets. With the acquisition, IDT will be able to provide ultra-high speed data connectivity products featuring electrical, RF and optical technologies.
