09/15/2021 | 09:38am

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 14, 2021, MoSys, Inc. (the "Company") and its newly formed
subsidiaries, 2864552 Ontario Inc. ("Callco") and 2864555 Ontario Inc.
("Canco"), both corporations existing under the laws of the province of Ontario,
entered into an Arrangement Agreement (the "Agreement") with Peraso Technologies
, a corporation existing under the laws of the province of Ontario
("Peraso"). Under the Agreement, the Company, indirectly through Canco, is to
acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Peraso ("Peraso
Shares"), including those Peraso Shares to be issued in connection with the
conversion or exchange of secured convertible debentures of Peraso and common
share purchase warrants of Peraso, as applicable, by way of a statutory plan of
arrangement (the "Arrangement") under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario)
(the "OBCA"), on and subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

Exchange of Securities

The Agreement provides that the Peraso stockholders may elect to receive either
shares of the Company's common stock (the "Common Stock") or shares of the
capital stock of Canco (the "Exchangeable Shares") in exchange for such holder's
Peraso Shares, in each case based on an exchange ratio (the "Exchange Ratio") to
be determined based on the number of Peraso Shares and shares of Common Stock
outstanding as of immediately prior to the effective time of the Arrangement
(the "Effective Time"). Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, at the Effective
Time, the Company shall hold an aggregate of 1,815,445 Exchangeable Shares and
Common Stock (collectively, the "Earnout Shares"). Such Earnout Shares shall be
escrowed pursuant to the terms of an escrow agreement on a pro rata basis from
the aggregate consideration to be received by the Peraso stockholders, subject
to the offset by the Company for any losses in accordance with the
Agreement. Such Earnout Shares shall be released, subject to any offset claim,
upon the satisfaction of the earlier of: (a) any date following the first
anniversary of the Effective Time and prior to the third anniversary of the
Effective Time where the volume weighted average price of the Common Stock for
any 20 trading days within a period of 30 consecutive trading days is at least
$8.57 per share, subject to adjustment for stock splits or other similar
transaction; (b) the date of any sale of all or substantially all of the assets
or shares of the Company; or (c) the date of any bankruptcy, insolvency,
restructuring, receivership, administration, wind-up, liquidation, dissolution,
or similar event involving the Company.

Following the Effective Time, each Exchangeable Share will be exchangeable by
the holder for one share of Common Stock (subject to customary adjustments for
stock splits or other reorganizations). In addition, the Company may require all
outstanding Exchangeable Shares to be exchanged upon the occurrence of certain
events and at any time following the seventh anniversary of the closing of the
Arrangement. While outstanding, holders of Exchangeable Shares will be entitled
to cast votes on matters for which holders of Common Stock are entitled to vote
and will be entitled to receive dividends economically equivalent to the
dividends declared by the Company with respect to the Common Stock. Eligibility
to receive Exchangeable Shares will be subject to certain Canadian residency
restrictions and tax statuses.

The Agreement also provides that Peraso stock options, which are exercisable for
Peraso Shares, will be replaced with an option to acquire Common Stock to be
issued by the Company in consideration for cancellation of the Peraso options
and exercisable for shares of Common Stock after the Effective Time, in each
case with adjustments based on the Exchange Ratio. The exact number of shares of
Common Stock that will be issued pursuant to the Arrangement will be determined
at the Effective Time in accordance with the Exchange Ratio.

Immediately following the Effective Time, based on the Exchange Ratio, the
former stockholders of Peraso are anticipated to own approximately 61% of the
economic and voting interest of the combined company with the Company's current
stockholders holding the remaining 39% economic and voting interest, as
calculated on a fully-diluted basis and including the Earnout Shares.

Post-Closing Governance

At the Effective Time, all members of the Company's board of directors other
than Daniel Lewis and Robert Newell will resign and the combined company's board
of directors (the "New Board") will be comprised of five directors, consisting
of Ronald Glibbery, Daniel Lewis, Robert Newell, and two Peraso director
nominees that will be considered independent directors under the Nasdaq Stock
("Nasdaq") listing rules.


Additionally, at the Effective Time, the executive officers of the combined
company will consist of: Ronald Glibbery, as Chief Executive Officer; Daniel
, as President; James Sullivan, as Chief Financial Officer; Brad Lynch as
Chief Operating Officer; and Alexander Tomkins as Chief Technology Officer.

In connection with the Arrangement, the Company will prepare and file with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") a proxy statement, and will seek
the approval of the Company's stockholders with respect to certain actions,
including, but not limited to, the following (the "Approval Matters"):

(i) the issuance of Common Stock to the Peraso stockholders
pursuant to the Agreement and the change of control of the
Company resulting from the Arrangement pursuant to pertinent
Nasdaq listing rules;

(ii) the amendment of the Company's certificate of incorporation to
effect a reverse split of all outstanding shares of the Common
Stock at a reverse stock split ratio of up to one-to-three if
determined by the Company's board of directors; and

(iii) the amendment of the MoSys, Inc. 2019 Stock Incentive Plan to
increase the number of shares of Common Stock reserved for
awards to 15% of the number of shares of Common Stock of the
combined company outstanding immediately after the Effective
Time on a fully-diluted basis.

Voting Agreements

The transaction has been unanimously approved by the board of directors of
Peraso, and each director, senior officer and 10% stockholder of Peraso
(determined on a fully-diluted basis) has executed a voting agreement (each such
agreement - a "Peraso Voting Agreement") and agreed to vote for approval of the
Arrangement at the meeting of Peraso stockholders. Analogously, all of the
senior officers and directors of the Company have executed a voting agreement
(each such agreement - a "MoSys Voting Agreement") and agreed to vote for
approval of the Approval Matters. The foregoing description of the Peraso Voting
Agreements and MoSys Voting Agreements does not purport to be complete and is
qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the Peraso Voting
. . .
