Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously reported, on April 7, 2017, Xcerra Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Unic Capital Management Co., Ltd. (“Unic Capital”) and China Integrated Circuit Industry Investment Fund Co., Ltd., as joined by Unic Acquisition Corporation (“Merger Sub”) (as amended, the “Merger Agreement”), providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger. Unic Capital subsequently assigned all of its rights under the Merger Agreement to Hubei Xinyan Equity Investment Partnership (Limited Partnership) (“Parent”) on August 4, 2017.

The closing of the Merger was subject to certain conditions, including clearance by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”). As previously reported, in December 2017, the Company and Parent submitted a request to withdraw and re-file their joint voluntary notice to CFIUS to allow more time for review and discussion with CFIUS in connection with the Merger.

After careful review of feedback received from CFIUS that approval of the Merger is highly unlikely and further discussions between the Company and Parent, the parties determined to cease efforts to seek CFIUS clearance and entered into a Termination Agreement, dated February 22, 2018 (the “Termination Agreement”), pursuant to which they mutually terminated the Merger Agreement and agreed to release each other and certain related parties from certain claims and liabilities relating to the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby. Neither the Company nor Parent will incur any termination fees in connection with the termination of the Merger Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Termination Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Termination Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated in its entirety herein by reference.
