Provides Additional Information to Investors in Supplemental Proxy Materials
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 5, 2017 – Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (“Cypress” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CY) announced that the date of the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) has been rescheduled to June 20, 2017 to comply with a Delaware Court of Chancery order to delay the holding of the Annual Meeting until certain supplemental disclosures are made. Accordingly, the Annual Meeting will convene on June 8, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, as previously announced, solely for the purpose of adjourning the Annual Meeting and the adjourned Annual Meeting will take place on June 20, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

The Company issued the following statement:
“On June 2, Cypress provided additional information to investors in supplemental proxy materials and rescheduled the Annual Meeting to June 20. Our Board is committed to good governance and transparency, and the supplemental filing simply provides additional detail on facts we have previously shared with our stockholders. We are disappointed by Rodgers’ continued efforts to mischaracterize the Cypress Board as disingenuous and with his false assertions about the timing of our proxy filings. The facts remain clear and we believe the choice for our stockholders is simple: vote the WHITE card today to protect your investment. If you have already voted and do not wish to change your vote, you do not need to do anything.”
