YOKNEAM, Israel -- EZchip Semiconductor Ltd. (NASDAQ:EZCH), a leader in high-performance network processors, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Tilera Corporation, a privately-held US-based company that develops high-performance multi-core processors, intelligent network interface cards and white-box appliances for data-center networking equipment. The acquisition is intended to provide significant new growth opportunities for EZchip by accelerating the Company’s expansion into new markets, diversifying its customer base and product lines and doubling its target Total Available Market (TAM).

Under the terms of the agreement, EZchip will pay Tilera’s stockholders up to $130 million in cash; of which $50 million is payable at closing and up to an additional $80 million is payable subject to the attainment of certain future performance milestones. The transaction has been approved by the EZchip and Tilera boards of directors and is subject to customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2014.

EZchip currently expects the acquisition to be neutral to slightly dilutive in 2014 and accretive in 2015 to earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis. Following the closing, Devesh Garg, the CEO of Tilera, will serve as EZchip’s President in charge of all US operations.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
