This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell securities. Tokyo Electron and RB Merger Corp have filed with the SEC a tender offer statement on Schedule TO (including the offer to purchase, letter of transmittal and other related tender offer materials), and have mailed an offer to purchase, forms of letter of transmittal and other related tender offer materials to FSI shareholders. Investors and FSI shareholders are strongly advised to read the tender offer statement (as amended and including the offer to purchase, letter of transmittal and other related tender offer documents) and the related solicitation/recommendation statement on Schedule 14D-9 (as amended) that was filed by FSI with the SEC, because they contain important information.
