Nature of the Business and Basis of Presentation Allegro MicroSystems, Inc., together with its consolidated subsidiaries (“AMI” or the “Company”), is a global leader in designing, developing and manufacturing sensing and power solutions for motion control and energy-efficient systems in automotive and industrial markets. The Company was incorporated under the laws of Delaware on March 30, 2013 under the name of Sanken North America, Inc. (“SKNA”) as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sanken Electric Co., Ltd. (“Sanken”). In October 2017, Sanken sold 28.8% of the common stock of SKNA to One Equity Partners (“OEP”). In April 2018, SKNA filed a certificate of amendment in the state of Delaware to change its name to Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. The Company is headquartered in Manchester, New Hampshire and has a global footprint with 16 locations across four continents.
On November 2, 2020, the Company completed its Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) of 28,750,000 shares of its common stock at an offering price of $14.00 per share, of which 25,000,000 shares were sold by the Company and 3,750,000 shares were sold by selling stockholders, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of approximately $321,425 after deducting $20,125 of underwriting discounts and $8,450 of offering costs. The Company’s common stock is now listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker symbol “ALGM.”
On March 28, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement to divest a majority of its ownership interest in Polar Semiconductor, Inc. (“PSL”) to Sanken, in order to better align with its fabless, asset-lite scalable manufacturing strategy (the “PSL Divestiture”). In order to affect this in-kind, non-cash transaction, Sanken contributed the forgiveness of the fair value of the entire related party notes payable of $42,700 owed to Sanken and the Company contributed the forgiveness of the fair value of $15,000 out of the $66,377 total debt owed by PSL to the Company, which was previously eliminated in consolidation. The entire net receivable balance of $51,377 plus accrued interest of $762 was repaid on October 14, 2020. Following the divestiture, Sanken held a 70% majority share in PSL with the Company retaining a 30% minority shareholder interest. The investment was recorded for the 30%, totaling $25,250 at the divestiture date. Beginning with reporting periods on and after March 28, 2020, the investment is included on the Company’s balance sheet as an equity investment in a related party, including $1,007 and $1,413 of income earned during the fiscal years ended March 25, 2022 and March 26, 2021.
In addition, the difference between the fair value contributed by both parties at the consummation of this transaction and the book value was treated as an adjustment of capitalization changes related to organizational structure of affiliates and direct and indirect interests in subsidiaries within additional paid-in capital of $19,165 at March 26, 2021. This amount includes an estimated tax effect of $1,552 for the fiscal year ended March 26, 2021.
On March 28, 2020, in connection with the divestiture described above, the Company also formally terminated its distribution agreement with Sanken to distribute Sanken’s products and entered into a transitional services agreement with PSL, which contracted with Sanken as its new channel for fulfillment of Sanken product sales in North America and Europe. Sanken will continue to provide distribution support for the Company’s products in Japan. See Note 21, “Related Party Transactions” for further discussion.
