The trading price for Cypress's common stock has been and may continue to be volatile and can be affected by the trading price of SunPower's class A common stock and/or speculation about the possibility of future actions we might take in connection with our SunPower holdings.

        The trading price of Cypress's common stock has been and will likely continue to be volatile due to various factors, some of which are beyond our control, including, but not limited to:

    quarterly variations in our results of operations or those of our competitors;

    announcements by us or our competitors of acquisitions, new products, significant contracts, commercial relationships or capital commitments;

    perceptions of general market conditions in the semiconductor industry and global market conditions;

    our ability to develop and market new and enhanced products on a timely basis;

    any major change in our board or management;

    changes in governmental regulations or in the status of our regulatory compliance;

    recommendations by securities analysts or changes in earnings estimates concerning us;

    announcements about our earnings that are not in line with analyst expectations;

    announcements by our competitors of their earnings that are not in line with analyst expectations;

    short sales, hedging and other derivative transactions on shares of our common stock;

    economic conditions and growth expectations in the markets in which our customers participate; and

    general economic conditions.

        In addition, the implied market value of SunPower's class B common stock we hold has, since SunPower's initial public offering, been significant relative to the total value of Cypress's outstanding common stock. As a result, the trading price of Cypress's common stock has been and likely will continue to be affected by the trading price for SunPower's class A common stock, actions taken or statements made by us, SunPower or others concerning the potential separation of SunPower from us, and other factors related to SunPower's business.

        Further, the stock market in general, and the market for technology companies in particular, have experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations. These broad market and industry factors may seriously harm the market price of our common stock, regardless of our actual operating performance. In the past, following periods of volatility in the overall market and the market price of a company's securities, securities class action litigation has often been instituted against these companies. This litigation, if instituted against us, could result in substantial costs and a diversion of our management's attention and resources.
