Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP Files Class Action Suit against Entropic Communications

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP announced that a class action has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California on behalf of holders of Entropic Communications, Inc. common stock on February 3, 2015, in connection with the proposed acquisition of Entropic by MaxLinear, Inc. On February 3, 2015, Entropic and MaxLinear announced that they had entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Entropic would be acquired by MaxLinear in a cash and stock transaction in which the company’s stockholders will receive $1.20 per share in cash and 0.2200 of a share of MaxLinear common stock for each Entropic common share outstanding. The complaint alleges that defendants breached their fiduciary duties and/or aided and abetted breaches of fiduciary duty in connection with the proposed acquisition. In addition, the complaint alleges that in order to secure shareholder approval of the deal, defendants filed a materially false and misleading Form S-4 Registration Statement with the SEC on March 12, 2015, which was subsequently amended on March 25, 2015. The S-4, which recommended that Entropic shareholders vote in favor of the proposed acquisition, omitted and/or misrepresented material information in contravention of §§14(a) and 20(a) of the 1934 Act. Specifically, the S-4 contains materially misleading statements or otherwise fails to provide material information about the Proposed Acquisition, including, among other things: (i) the flawed and unfair sales process undertaken by the board; (ii) the conflicts of interests that burdened the process; (iii) the data and key inputs underlying the financial analyses performed by Barclays Capital, Inc., Entropic’s financial advisor; and (iv) certain financial projections prepared by Entropic’s management and relied upon by Barclays in rendering its opinion as to the fairness of the proposed acquisition to the company’s public shareholders. The complaint alleges that the foregoing information is material to the impending decision of Entropic’s shareholders whether or not to vote in favor of the proposed acquisition and/or whether to seek appraisal for their shares. Plaintiffs seek injunctive and equitable relief on behalf of holders of Entropic common stock on February 3, 2015. The plaintiffs are represented by Robbins Geller, which has expertise in prosecuting investor class actions and extensive experience in actions involving financial fraud.

Entropic and Peking University Partner on HINOC 2.0 Access Solutions in China

Entropic announced a strategic collaboration with Peking University to create the HINOC (High Performance Network Over Coax) 2.0 solution to serve China's expanding broadband access market which requires higher-speed broadband to support advanced triple-play and multiscreen services. China's State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) is actively promoting Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) solutions to enable bi-directional communication on all cable television networks throughout China. HINOC 2.0 is the SARFT approved standard for broadband access technology using the high-RF spectrum of the coax. HINOC 2.0 based services will operate in the range of 750 MHz to 1006 MHz and deliver speeds up to 1 Gbit per second at the headend and support 100 Mbits per second to each subscriber's home. Peking University has a long history working with SARFT on next-generation broadband (NGB) initiatives. The University is working closely with SARFT to launch a HINOC 2.0 product to expand high speed broadband service for the greater China market. Peking University has selected Entropic's EN146x as a companion RF transceiver and front-end to their HINOC MAC/PHY. Through this collaboration, service providers and their original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will have access to a complete solution allowing them to quickly develop EoC products for bi-directional communication that can coexist with other services on the same coaxial cable. This partnership provides an end-to-end solution incorporating RF front-end and baseband technologies that will enable China's service providers to offer both TV and broadband service, as well as introduce new IP video services – on the existing coaxial cable – to service multiple-dwelling units (MDUs). Entropic's EN146x is a complete front-end IC that incorporates all the necessary active RF components such as the PA, LNA, T/R switch and RF transceiver. The chip is offered for both commercial and industrial temperature ratings and was designed to support the HINOC market. The EN146x is the only merchant RF solution available on the market, allowing vendors to focus their development resources on the MAC and PHY layers of the HINOC 2.0 solution.

Entropic c.LINK1.1+ Access Solution to Deploy with Tianjin Broadcast and TV Network Co

Entropic announced the deployment of its latest c.LINK® Broadband Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) Access technology by Tianjin Broadcast and TV Network Co. Ltd. in field trials beginning this month. By deploying Entropic's newest technology within its network, the leading Chinese operator gains higher network performance, a lower bill of materials (BOM) cost and an easy and scalable upgrade path from c.LINK 1.1. cLINK 1.1+ is comprised of the EN3681 Network Controller (NC) and the EN3690 Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) and offers a multiple channel EoC solution that can deliver up to 800 Mbps of aggregated throughput, ensuring the bandwidth and flexibility needed to meet China'sNext Generation Broadcasting (NGB) requirements. The technology enables the delivery of advanced IP-based broadband and interactive services, such as IPTV, IP VoD (video on demand), VoIP (voice over IP), and internet-access over the same coaxial network that is shared with the operator's cable TV service. Backward compatible with Entropic's c.LINK 1.1 installed base, this newest generation EoC solution protects Tianjin's previous investments and provides them with an upgrade path over their existing services. Entropic's c.LINK 1.1+ solution is available now. Tianjin Broadcast and TV Network are entering field trials in March with volume deployments targeted for the second half of 2015. The technology will be on display at the 2015 CCBN conference in the Entropic Meeting Suite, located at Radisson 'Blu' Beijing – Meeting Room suite 1420.
