All capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Agreement shall have the respective meanings ascribed to such terms in the Merger Agreement (as defined below).

WHEREAS, as of the date hereof, each Stockholder is the record or beneficial owner (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act) of the number of shares of common stock (“Common Stock”), par value $0.001, of GigPeak, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) set forth opposite such Stockholder’s name on Schedule A hereto (all such shares set forth on Schedule A, together with any shares of Common Stock of the Company that are hereafter issued to or otherwise acquired or owned by any Stockholder prior to the termination of this Agreement, which shall not include any unvested Company RSUs, being referred to herein as the “Subject Shares”);

WHEREAS, concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement, Parent, the Purchaser and the Company are entering into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of the date hereof (as it may be amended from time to time, the “Merger Agreement”), which provides, among other things, for the Purchaser to commence an offer to purchase all of the issued and outstanding Common Stock of the Company and the Merger of the Company and the Purchaser, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement; and

WHEREAS, as a condition to their willingness to enter into the Merger Agreement, Parent and the Purchaser have required that each Stockholder enter into this Agreement, and each Stockholder has agreed to do so in order to induce Parent and Purchaser to enter into, and in consideration of their entering into, the Merger Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the respective representations, warranties, covenants and agreements set forth below and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, do hereby agree as follows:

ARTICLE I

AGREEMENT TO TENDER

1.1. Agreement to Tender. Each Stockholder agrees to validly tender or cause to be tendered in the Offer all of such Stockholder’s Subject Shares pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the Offer, free and clear of all Encumbrances (other than Permitted Encumbrances). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, as promptly as practicable after, but in no event later than ten (10) Business Days after, the commencement of the Offer, each Stockholder shall deliver pursuant to the terms of the Offer all of the Subject Shares owned by the Stockholder as of the date of such tender (the “Tender Date”) and all other documents or instruments required to be delivered by the Company’s stockholders pursuant to the terms of the Offer, including (A) a letter of transmittal with respect to such Stockholder’s Subject Shares complying with the terms of the Offer and (B) a certificate representing such Stockholder’s Subject Shares or an “agent’s message” (or such other evidence, if any, of transfer as the Paying Agent may reasonably request) in the case of a book-entry share of any


uncertificated Subject Shares. If any Stockholder acquires any Subject Shares after the Tender Date, such Stockholder shall tender into the Offer such Subject Shares prior to the earlier of (x) three (3) Business Days following the date that the Stockholder shall acquire such Subject Shares and (y) the Expiration Date. Each Stockholder agrees that, once such Stockholder’s Subject Shares are tendered, such Stockholder shall not withdraw or cause to be withdrawn any of such Subject Shares from the Offer, unless and until this Agreement shall have been terminated; provided, however, that a Stockholder shall not be required to (x) exercise any unexercised Company Options for the purposes of this Agreement or (y) tender any Subject Shares into the Offer if such tender could cause such Stockholder to incur liability under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act.

ARTICLE IV

ADDITIONAL COVENANTS OF THE STOCKHOLDERS

Each Stockholder hereby covenants and agrees that until the termination of this Agreement:

4.1. Voting of Subject Shares; Proxy.

(a) At any meeting of the stockholders of the Company held while this Agreement is in effect, however called, and at every adjournment or postponement thereof, or in connection with any written consent of the stockholders of the Company or in any other circumstances upon which a vote, consent or other approval of all or some of the stockholders of the Company is sought, such Stockholder shall, or shall cause the holder of record of its Subject Shares on any applicable record date to, appear at such meeting or otherwise cause such Stockholder’s Subject Shares to be counted as present thereat for purposes of establishing a quorum at any such meeting and vote (or cause to be voted) all of such Stockholder’s Subject Shares to the extent that any of the Subject Shares are entitled to vote at such meeting or in such written consent (the “Vote Shares”) (i) in favor of (A) approval and adoption of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereunder or any other transaction pursuant to which Parent proposes to acquire the Company (whether by tender offer or merger) in which the stockholders of the Company would receive aggregate cash consideration per share of Company Common Stock equal to or greater than the cash consideration to be received by such stockholders in the Offer and the Merger and (B) approval of any proposal to adjourn or postpone the meeting to a later date, if there are not sufficient votes for the approval of the Merger Agreement or such other transaction on the date on which such meeting is held, (ii) against (A) any action or agreement which is intended or would reasonably be expected to impede, delay, postpone, interfere with, nullify or prevent, in each case in any material respect the Offer or the Merger, including, but not limited to, any other extraordinary corporate transaction, including, a merger, acquisition, sale, consolidation, reorganization, recapitalization, extraordinary dividend or liquidation involving the Company and any Person (other than Parent, the Purchaser or their Affiliates), or any other proposal of any Person (other than Parent, the Purchaser or their Affiliates) to acquire the Company or all or substantially all of the assets thereof, (B) any Competing Proposal and any action in furtherance of any Competing Proposal, (C) any amendment to the Company Charter or Company Bylaws, (D) any material change to the capitalization of the Company, (E) any change in a majority of the directors of the Company Board or (F) any action, proposal, transaction or agreement that would reasonably be expected to result in the occurrence of any condition set forth in Annex I to the Merger Agreement or result in a breach of any covenant, representation or warranty or any other obligation or agreement of such Stockholder under this Agreement and/or (iii) in favor of any other matter necessary for consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, which is considered at any such meeting of the Company stockholders.

(b) Such Stockholder hereby revokes (and agrees to cause to be revoked) any proxies that such Stockholder has heretofore granted with respect to the Subject Shares. Solely with respect to the matters described in Section 4.1(a), while this Agreement is in effect, such Stockholder hereby irrevocably grants to, and appoints, Parent, the Chief Executive Officer of Parent and any designee thereof, as such Stockholder’s proxy and attorney-in-fact, for and in the name, place and stead of such Stockholder, to (i) attend any meeting of the stockholders of the Company on behalf of such Stockholder with respect to the matters set forth in Section 4.1(a), (ii) cause such Stockholder’s Subject Shares to be counted as present for purposes of establishing a quorum at any such meeting and (iii) vote all Vote Shares, or grant or withhold a consent or approval in respect of the Vote Shares, or issue instructions to the record holder of such Stockholder’s Vote Shares to do any of the foregoing, in connection with any meeting of the stockholders of the Company or any action by written consent in lieu of a meeting of the stockholders of the Company with respect to the matters set forth in Section 4.1(a), in a manner consistent with the provisions of Section 4.1(a). Such Stockholder authorizes such proxy and attorney-in-fact to substitute any other Person to act hereunder, to revoke any substitution and to file this proxy and any substitution or revocation with the Secretary of the Company. Such

 

5


Stockholder hereby affirms that the irrevocable proxy set forth in this Section 4.1(b) is given in connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement and granted in consideration of and as an inducement to Parent and the Purchaser to enter into the Merger Agreement, and that such irrevocable proxy is given to secure the performance of the duties of such Stockholder under this Agreement, subject to the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 5.2. Such Stockholder hereby further affirms that the proxy set forth in this Section 4.1(b) is coupled with an interest, is intended to be irrevocable (and as such shall survive and shall not be affected by the death, incapacity, mental illness or insanity of such Stockholder, as applicable), subject, however, to its automatic termination upon the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 5.2, and shall not be terminated by operation of Law or upon the occurrence of any other event other than the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 5.2. Parent agrees not to exercise the proxy granted herein for any purpose other than the purposes described in this Agreement.

4.2. No Transfer; No Inconsistent Arrangements.

(a) Except as provided hereunder (including pursuant to Section 1.1 or Section 4.1) or under the Merger Agreement, from and after the date hereof and until this Agreement is terminated, such Stockholder shall not, directly or indirectly, (i) create or permit to exist any Encumbrance, other than Permitted Encumbrances, on any such Stockholder’s Subject Shares, (ii) transfer, sell, assign, gift, hedge, mortgage, pledge or otherwise dispose of, or enter into any derivative arrangement with respect to (collectively, “Transfer”), any or all of such Stockholder’s Equity Interests in the Company, including any Subject Shares, or any right or interest therein (or consent to any of the foregoing), (iii) enter into any Contract with respect to any Transfer of such Subject Shares or any interest therein, (iv) grant or permit the grant of any proxy, power-of-attorney or other authorization or consent in or with respect to any such Stockholder’s Subject Shares, (v) deposit or permit the deposit of any of such Stockholder’s Equity Interests in the Company, including any Subject Shares, into a voting trust or enter into a voting agreement or arrangement with respect to any of such Stockholder’s Equity Interests in the Company, including the Subject Shares or (vi) take or permit any other action that would in any way restrict, limit or interfere with the performance of such Stockholder’s obligations hereunder or otherwise make any representation or warranty of such Stockholder herein untrue or incorrect; provided, that the restrictions contained in this Section 4.2 shall not apply with respect to any transfer of the Subject Shares by a Stockholder pursuant to applicable Laws of descent and distribution; provided, further, that any such proposed transferee must agree in writing to take such Subject Shares subject to and to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement applicable to such Subject Shares. Any action taken in violation of the foregoing sentence shall be null and void ab initio and such Stockholder agrees that any such prohibited action may and should be enjoined. If any involuntary Transfer of any of the Subject Shares shall occur (including, but not limited to, a sale by such Stockholder’s trustee in any bankruptcy, or a sale to a purchaser at any creditor’s or court sale), the transferee (which term, as used herein, shall include any and all transferees and subsequent transferees of the initial transferee) shall take and hold such Subject Shares subject to all of the restrictions, liabilities and rights under this Agreement, which shall continue in full force and effect until valid termination of this Agreement. Such Stockholder agrees that it shall not, and shall cause each of its Affiliates not to, become a member of a “group” (as defined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act) with respect to any Equity Interests in the Company for the purpose of opposing or competing with or taking any actions inconsistent with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such Stockholder may make Transfers of Subject Shares (a) to any wholly-owned Subsidiary of such Stockholder, in which case the Subject Shares shall continue to be bound by this Agreement; provided, that, any such transferee agrees in writing to be

 

6


bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement prior to the consummation of any such Transfer, or (b) as Parent may agree in writing in its sole discretion. If so requested by Parent, such Stockholder agrees that the Subject Shares shall bear a legend stating that such Subject Shares are subject to this Agreement (provided, such legend shall be removed upon the valid termination of this Agreement).

(b) At all times until the Expiration Date, in furtherance of this Agreement, such Stockholder shall, and hereby does authorize and instruct the Company or its counsel to notify the Company’s transfer agent that, from the date hereof until the Expiration Date, there is a stop transfer order with respect to all of the Subject Shares of such Stockholder (and that this Agreement places limits on the voting and transfer of such Shares until the Expiration Date); provided, however, that if this Agreement shall have been terminated in accordance with its terms, the foregoing authorization and instruction shall be null and void and shall have no further force or effect.

(c) For the avoidance of doubt, no forfeiture of any Shares, or net settlement or purchase by the Company to satisfy tax withholding obligations, shall be deemed to be a breach of any provision hereof.

4.3. No Solicitation. Such Stockholder shall not and shall cause its Representatives not to directly or indirectly, if and to the extent prohibited by Section 5.3 of the Merger Agreement (assuming for this purpose that such Stockholder is the “Company”, as such term is defined in the Merger Agreement): (i) solicit, initiate, knowingly facilitate or encourage (including by way of furnishing nonpublic information) any Competing Proposal or Competing Inquiry, (ii) engage in, continue or otherwise participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding, or furnish to any other Person any information or afford to any other Person access to the business, properties, assets, books, records or any personnel of the Company or its Subsidiaries, in each case in connection with or for the purpose of encouraging or facilitating, a Competing Proposal or Competing Inquiry, (iii) approve, endorse, recommend, execute or enter into, or publicly propose to approve, endorse, recommend, execute or enter into any Alternative Acquisition Agreement, (iv) take any action to make the provisions of any Takeover Statute (including Section 203 of the DGCL) or any applicable anti-takeover provision in the Company’s organizational documents inapplicable to any transactions contemplated by a Competing Proposal, (v) except at the written request of Parent, terminate, amend, release, modify, waive or knowingly fail to enforce any provision of the Company Rights Agreement or exempt any Person not affiliated with Parent from the definition of Acquiring Person thereunder, (vi) terminate, amend, release, modify or knowingly fail to enforce any provision of, or grant any permission, waiver or request under, any standstill, confidentiality or similar contract entered into by the Company in respect of or in contemplation of a Competing Proposal (other than to the extent the Company Board determines in good faith, after consultation with the Company’s independent financial advisors and outside legal counsel, that failure to take any such actions would be reasonably likely to result in a breach of, or otherwise be inconsistent with, its fiduciary duties under applicable Law) or (vii) propose, resolve or agree to do any of the foregoing. Such Stockholder shall not and shall cause its Representatives not to directly or indirectly knowingly engage in any conduct prohibited by Section 5.3 of the Merger Agreement (assuming for this purpose that such Stockholder is the “Company”, as such term is defined in the Merger Agreement). Such Stockholder represents and warrants that such Stockholder has reviewed the terms of Section 5.3 of the Merger Agreement with outside counsel to the Company.

4.4. No Exercise of Appraisal Rights. Such Stockholder hereby irrevocably and unconditionally (a) waives and agrees not to exercise, assert or perfect, or attempt to exercise, assert or perfect any appraisal rights or dissenters’ rights in respect of such Stockholder’s Subject Shares that may arise with respect to the Merger and/or the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (including, without limitation, under Section 262 of the DGCL) and (b) agrees not to commence or participate in, and to take all actions necessary to opt out of any class in any class action with respect to, any claim, derivative or otherwise, (i) against the Company, any of its Representatives or any of its successors, including claims relating to the negotiation, execution, or delivery of this Agreement or the Merger Agreement or the consummation of the Merger, including any claim alleging a breach of any fiduciary duty of the Company Board in connection with the Merger Agreement, the Merger or the other transactions contemplated thereby, or (ii) challenging the validity of or seeking to enjoin the operation of any provision of this Agreement.

4.5. Documentation and Information. Such Stockholder shall not make any public announcement regarding this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby without the prior written consent of Parent, except as may be required by applicable Law (provided, that reasonable notice of any such disclosure will be provided to Parent). Such Stockholder consents to and hereby authorizes Parent, the Purchaser and/or their Affiliates to publish and disclose in all documents and schedules filed with the SEC, and any press release or other disclosure document that Parent, the Purchaser and/or their Affiliates reasonably determines to be necessary in connection with the Offer, the Merger and any transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, such Stockholder’s identity and ownership of the Subject Shares, the existence of this Agreement and the nature of such Stockholder’s commitments and obligations under this Agreement, and such Stockholder acknowledges that Parent, the Purchaser and/or their respective Affiliates may, in Parent’s sole discretion, file this Agreement or a form hereof with the SEC or any other Governmental Authority. Such Stockholder agrees to promptly give each of Parent, the Purchaser and/or their respective Affiliates any information it may reasonably require for the preparation of any such disclosure documents, and such Stockholder agrees to promptly notify such parties of any required corrections with respect to any written information supplied by such Stockholder specifically for use in any such disclosure document, if and to the extent that any such information shall have become false or misleading in any material respect.

4.6. Adjustments. In the event (a) of any stock split, stock dividend, merger, reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, combination, exchange of shares or the like of the capital stock of the Company affecting the Subject Shares or (b) that such Stockholder shall become the record or beneficial owner of any additional shares of Company Common Stock, then the terms of this Agreement shall apply to the shares of Company Common Stock held by such Stockholder immediately following the effectiveness of the events described in clause (a) or such Stockholder becoming the record or beneficial owner thereof as described in clause (b), as though, in either case, they were Subject Shares hereunder. In the event that such Stockholder shall become the beneficial owner of any other Equity Interests entitling the holder thereof to vote or give consent with respect to the matters set forth in Section 4.1 hereof, then the terms of Section 4.1 hereof shall apply to such other Equity Interests as though they were Subject Shares hereunder.

EACH OF THE PARTIES (1) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (2) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT, AS APPLICABLE, BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 5.6(c).

5.7. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts (including via facsimile, .pdf or other electronic means), and by the different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

5.8. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with Schedule A, constitutes the entire agreement of the parties and supersedes all prior agreements and undertakings, both written and oral, among the parties, or any of them, with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof.

5.9. Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of Law or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the extent possible.

5.10. Specific Performance. The parties hereto agree that if any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached, irreparable damage would occur, no adequate remedy at law would exist and damages would be difficult to determine. It is accordingly agreed that Parent and Purchaser, on the one hand, and each of the Stockholders, on the other hand, shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement against the other exclusively in the Chancery Court of the State of Delaware and any state appellate court therefrom within the State of Delaware (or, if the Chancery Court of the State of Delaware declines to accept jurisdiction over a particular matter, any state or federal court within the State of Delaware) and any such injunction shall be in addition to any other remedy to which any party is entitled, at law or in equity. In connection with any action for specific performance, each party hereby irrevocably waives any requirement for proof of actual damages or the securing or posting of any bond in connection with the remedies referred to in this Section 5.10.

5.11. Headings. The headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

5.12. Mutual Drafting; Interpretation. Each party hereto has participated in the drafting of this Agreement, which each party acknowledges is the result of extensive negotiations between the parties. If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the parties, and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any provision. For purposes of this Agreement, whenever the context requires: the singular number shall include the plural, and vice versa, the masculine gender shall include the feminine and neuter genders, the feminine gender shall include the masculine and neuter genders and the neuter gender shall include masculine and feminine genders. As used in this Agreement, the words “include” and “including,” and variations thereof, shall not be deemed to be terms of limitation, but rather shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.” Except as otherwise indicated, all references in this Agreement to “Sections,” “Articles” and “Schedules” are intended to refer to Sections, Articles and Schedules to this Agreement. Schedule A attached to this Agreement constitutes a part of this Agreement and is incorporated herein for all purposes. The words “hereof,” “hereto,” “hereby,” “herein,” “hereunder” and words of similar import, when used in this Agreement, shall refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular section or article in which such words appear. The words “shall” and “will” may be used interchangeably herein and shall have the same meaning. All references in this Agreement to “$” are references to United States dollars. Unless otherwise specifically provided for herein, the term “or” shall not be deemed to be exclusive. Except as otherwise specified, (i) references to any statute shall be deemed to refer to such statute as amended from time to time and to any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder, (ii) references to any Person include the successors and permitted assigns of that Person, and (iii) references from or through any date mean from and including or through and including, respectively.

5.13. Further Assurances. Parent, the Purchaser and each Stockholder will execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, all further documents and instruments and use their respective reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions and to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or advisable under applicable Laws and regulations, to perform their respective obligations under this Agreement.

5.14. Capacity as Stockholder. Each Stockholder signs this Agreement solely in such Stockholder’s capacity as a Stockholder of the Company, and not in such Stockholder’s capacity as a director, officer or employee of the Company or any Company Subsidiary. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, nothing herein shall in any way restrict a director or officer of the Company in the taking of any actions (or failure to act) in his or her capacity as a director or officer of the Company, or in the exercise, in such Stockholder’s sole discretion, of his or her fiduciary duties as a director or officer of the Company, or prevent or be construed to create any obligation on the part of any director or officer of the Company from taking any action in his or her capacity as such director, officer, trustee or fiduciary.

5.15. No Agreement Until Executed. This Agreement shall not be effective unless and until (i) the Merger Agreement is executed by all parties thereto and (ii) as to a Stockholder, this Agreement is executed by Parent, the Purchaser and such Stockholder.

5.16. Stockholder Obligation Several and Not Joint; Independent Nature of Obligations. The obligations of each Stockholder hereunder shall be several and not joint, and no Stockholder shall be liable for any breach of the terms of this Agreement by any other Stockholder. Each of Parent and Purchaser, on the one hand, and each Stockholder, on the other, shall be entitled to enforce its rights under this Agreement against the other, and it shall not be necessary for any other Stockholder to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose. No Stockholder may enforce this Agreement against any other Stockholder party hereto. A default by any Stockholder of its obligations pursuant to this Agreement shall not relieve any other Stockholder of any of its obligations to Parent and/or the Purchaser under this Agreement.

5.17. No Ownership Interest. Except as otherwise provided herein, nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed to vest in Parent or the Purchaser any direct or indirect ownership or incidence of ownership of or with respect to the Subject Shares. Except as otherwise provided herein or in the Merger Agreement, all rights, ownership and economic benefits of and relating to the Subject Shares shall remain vested in and belong to each applicable Stockholder, and neither Parent nor the Purchaser shall have any authority to manage, direct, restrict, regulate, govern, or administer any of the policies or operations of the Company or exercise any power or authority to direct such Stockholder in the voting of any of the Subject Shares.
