  IDT Announces Extension of Exchange Offer Expiration Date in PLX Technology

Business Wire

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- December 07, 2012

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and
Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions,
today announced that it is extending the expiration date of its exchange offer
for all outstanding shares of common stock of PLX Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:
PLXT). The exchange offer was previously scheduled to expire at the end of the
day on December 10, 2012, at 12:00 midnight, New York City time. The exchange
offer is being extended as the applicable waiting period pursuant to the
Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (“HSR Act”) has not yet
expired or been terminated. While most previous extensions of the expiration
date of the exchange offer have been limited to 20 business days pursuant to
the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger relating to the exchange offer,
the parties have agreed to a one-time waiver of this limitation, which permits
IDT to extend the offer period for 27 business days until the end of the day
on January 18, 2013, at 12:00 midnight, New York City time. Approximately 18.0
million shares, or approximately 39.9% of PLX’s outstanding common stock, had
been tendered as of 12:00 midnight at the end of the day on December 6, 2012.

Correspondingly, in order for the trustee of the PLX Employee Stock Ownership
Plan (“ESOP”) to be instructed in a timely manner to tender or not tender all
or a portion of the shares allocated to such participant’s account under the
ESOP, each participant in the ESOP must complete and return the ESOP
instruction form previously provided to participants so that it is received by
Computershare, the tabulation agent for the offer, not later than 5:00 p.m.,
New York City time, on January 15, 2013, unless the offer is further extended.

As previously announced on May 22, 2012, IDT commenced an exchange offer to
acquire all outstanding shares of common stock of PLX for (i) $3.50 in cash
and (ii) 0.525 shares of IDT common stock for each PLX common share
outstanding, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes. The
exchange offer is being made pursuant to a Prospectus/Offer to Purchase, dated
May 22, 2012, and in connection with an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated
April 30, 2012, which IDT and PLX previously announced on April 30, 2012. As
previously announced, on May 7, 2012, in connection with the Agreement and
Plan of Merger, which contemplates the exchange offer for all outstanding
shares of PLX common stock, followed by a second step merger, IDT and PLX made
premerger filings under the HSR Act with the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”)
and the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Effective June
5, 2012, following consultation with the FTC and PLX, IDT voluntarily withdrew
its Notification and Report Form with respect to the exchange offer and the
merger. IDT re-filed its Notification and Report form on June 6, 2012. On July
6, 2012, IDT and PLX each received a request for additional information from
the FTC (the “Second Request”). This Second Request extends the waiting period
applicable to the exchange offer under the HSR Act, which was set to expire on
July 6, 2012 at 11:59 p.m., New York City time. The waiting period is extended
until 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on the thirtieth day (or the next
business day) after both IDT and PLX substantially comply with the Second
Request, as specified by the HSR Act and the implementing rules, unless
further extended by agreement with the parties.
