Item 8.01 Other Events.
Among the items to be considered and acted upon by the stockholders of Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (the Company) at its Annual Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for Thursday, November 10, 2005, is a proposal to amend and restate the Companys 1996 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (the 1996 Plan). This proposal is identified as Proposal 2 in the Companys Proxy Statement dated October 7, 2005 (the Proxy Statement) that was previously furnished to the Companys stockholders of record on September 28, 2005. The amendment and restatement of the 1996 Plan as originally approved by the Companys Board of Directors (Board) and as described in Proposal 2 of the Companys Proxy Statement provides for the amendment and restatement of the 1996 Plan to (a) increase the number of shares available for issuance by 10,800,000 shares from 117,600,000 shares to 128,400,000 shares, (b) permit the award of restricted stock units and restricted stock and (c) extend the term of the 1996 Plan through 2015.
After reviewing votes cast by certain stockholders and in order to facilitate stockholder approval of Proposal 2, the Board has amended Proposal 2 in order to reduce the number of shares available for issuance under the Companys 1996 Plan from 128,400,000 shares to 127,100,000 shares such that only 9,500,000 shares would be added to the 1996 Plan instead of 10,800,000 shares as originally requested if the proposal is approved by stockholders as amended. Proposal 2 is not amended in any other respect.
