Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of shareholders of Conexant Systems, Inc. (“Conexant” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CNXT) concerning its potential acquisition by Standard Microsystems Corporation (“SMCS”). Under the terms of the offer, Conexant’s shareholders will receive approximately $2.25 consisting of $1.125 cash and a fraction of stock for each of their shares. The transaction is valued at $284 million.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the deal price to Conexant’s shareholders, the process by which Conexant’s directors considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interests on the part of Conexant board members.
