Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On November 23, 2015, GSI Technology, Inc. (“GSI”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which GSI acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of privately held MikaMonu Group, Ltd., a development-stage Israel-based company that specializes in in-place associative computing for markets including big data, computer vision and cyber security.  The acquisition was consummated simultaneously with the execution of the Purchase Agreement.


Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, GSI paid $5.0 million in cash at closing and will pay the former MikaMonu shareholders up to an additional $2.5 million in cash over a four-year period, conditioned on the continued employment of Dr. Avidan Akerib, MikaMonu’s co-founder and chief technologist.  GSI will make additional payments in cash or GSI common stock, at GSI’s discretion, during a period of up to ten years if certain product development milestones and revenue targets for products based on the MikaMonu technology are achieved.  Initial products are expected to be introduced in late 2017, and the acquisition is expected to be accretive to GSI’s net income in fiscal 2019.  MikaMonu will continue to conduct its operations in Israel as a wholly-owned subsidiary of GSI.


Prior to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, there were no material relationships between GSI or any of its affiliates, on the one hand, and MikaMonu or any of its shareholders or affiliates, on the other.


A copy of the press release announcing the transaction contemplated by the Purchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
