Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Conexant Systems, Inc. (“Conexant” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CNXT) relating to the proposed acquisition by Standard Microsystems Corporation (“SMSC”). Including assumed debt, the proposed cash-and-stock transaction is valued at approximately $284 million.

Under the terms of the offer, Conexant shareholders would receive cash of $1.125 for each share of Conexant stock they own, as well a fractional share of SMSC common stock valued at $1.125. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law. The transaction appears to be unfair, in part, given that the $2.25 offer is less than half of the Company’s 52 week high of $5.17.

If you own shares of Conexant and wish to discuss the legal ramifications of the proposed transaction, or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions. You may contact Jason L. Brodsky, Esquire or Evan J. Smith, Esquire at Brodsky & Smith, LLC, Two Bala Plaza, Suite 602, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004, by e-mail at, or by calling toll free 877-LEGAL-90.
