Transaction Consideration Approximately $3.2 billion of total equity value: Finisar shareholders to own approximately 31% of the combined company Per Share Consideration $26.00 per share: $15.60 in cash and 0.2218 shares of II-VI common stock, valued at $10.40 per share based on the closing price of II-VI’s common stock of $46.88 on November 8, 2018 Sources of Financing $2.0 billion of new funded debt in the form of fully committed financing (in addition to unfunded revolver) $1.0 billion of combined balance sheet cash $1.4 billion of equity issued to Finisar shareholders Approval Process Approval by II-VI and Finisar shareholders Regulatory approvals Expected Timeline Middle of calendar year 2019, subject to customary closing conditions Financial Highlights $150mm of expected annual cost synergies realized within 36 months of close Expected to drive accretion in Non-GAAP earnings-per-share for the first full year post close of approximately 10% and more than double that thereafter Transaction overview
What are the Analysts saying? II-VI and Finisar – A Merger of Equals LightCounting explores II-VI’s acquisition of Finisar in a new Research Note It is not fun to be the second company in a crowded market; the urge to be first can be overwhelming. Finisar and II-VI found a solution by joining forces. II-VI Incorporated announced an agreement to acquire optical transceiver market leader Finisar on November 9, 2018, and LightCounting has published a Research Note exploring the ramifications of the deal for II-VI and the optical components industry. Our key findings: The acquisition of Finisar makes II-VI the top photonics player Finisar products and internal technology complement the II-VI portfolio The acquisition bolsters II-V’s effort to crack the 3D sensing market II-VI’s total addressable market expands by $7.7 billion It may take until mid-year 2019 or later for the deal to close More deals may come, given the high premiums paid for Oclaro and Finisar The deal values Finisar shares at a 37% premium over the market close on November 8, and has a value of $3.2 billion. The acquisition will be financed by a combination of $1 billion in cash, $2.0 billion in new debt, and $1.4 billion in new stock, and is subject to a variety of regulatory and antitrust approvals. The combined company will have annual revenues of almost $2.5 billion, 24,000 employees, and 70 locations. II-VI posted GAAP net profit in the last four quarters, whereas Finisar did not. The Finisar acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals in the U.S., China, and possibly elsewhere, so the deal is unlikely to close before mid-year 2019. II-VI acquired 15 companies over last 15 years, but Finisar is by far the largest.
What are the Analysts saying? II-VI + FNSR: AN OPTICAL POWERHOUSE Cowen Equity Research Note: Paul Silverstein, Fahad Najam, Elizabeth Pate Acquisition of FNSR appears well-conceived. FNSR should significantly enhance IIVI's market share in optics, oper model and overall value proposition. The deal is expected to be 10% accretive to IIVI's FY19 PF EPS and >20% accretive to FY20 PF EPS. Of course, execution—especially talent retention—will be key. We reiterate our Outperform rating and continue to see compelling risk-reward On 11/9/18 IIIV announced the acquisition of Finisar for $3.2B with FNSR shareholders owning 31% of the combined company. We see this deal a significantly transformative not just for IIVI and FNSR but for the entire optical component and module industry. The combined company will be the number one share leader in ROADMs/WSS, optical modules for data center and telecom connectivity and optical components. Moreover, the combined company will become a significant supplier in the emerging 3-D sensing market opportunity. IIVI has an impressive track record regarding strategic acquisitions that we expect will continue to serve IIVI and its shareholders well in the future as measured by profitable growth and cash flow generation. Offering support for our view, IIVI has delivered an average 23% ROIC over the past ten years against its strict 20% return on invested capital requirement. This track record encompasses both the strategy itself and its execution. More specifically, IIVI has proven adept in identifying, securing, integrating and improving assets that provide entrée into market opportunities or that enhance or extend the breadth and/or depth, or lower the cost, of IIVI’s solutions. IIVI has proven particularly adept at identifying, securing and enhancing distressed assets and successfully integrating these assets into IIVI’s business units
II-VI and Finisar share many cultural values Long history (30+ years) of innovation with history of successfully commercializing complex technologies Focus on sustained and growing market leadership in optical communications Commitment to address customer needs from a broad product portfolio Successful differentiation through vertical integration Focus on China growth strategy History of growth via selective and strategic acquisitions We believe that the people, history, culture, technology, and assets of Finisar are a great match for II-VI
Next Steps (what now?) Listen, learn, communicate Plan the integration Establish the joint team Establish priorities Align the resources People from both companies will travel to other sites The II-VI Chairman and I will attend the Nov 29 FNSR Board Meeting Customer, supplier, and employee engagement
