MACOM TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS HOLDINGS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

1.
SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Unaudited Interim Financial Information —The accompanying unaudited, condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared according to the rules and regulations of the United States (the “U.S.”) Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of the condensed consolidated balance sheets, condensed consolidated statements of operations, condensed consolidated statement of comprehensive loss, condensed consolidated statements of stockholders' equity and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows of MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (“MACOM”, the “Company”, “us”, “we” or “our”) for the periods presented. We prepare our interim financial information using the same accounting principles we use for our annual audited consolidated financial statements. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in the annual audited consolidated financial statements have been condensed or omitted in accordance with prescribed SEC rules. We believe that the disclosures made in our condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes are adequate to make the information presented not misleading.
The consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2016 is as reported in our audited consolidated financial statements as of that date. Our accounting policies are described in the notes to our September 30, 2016 consolidated financial statements, which were included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended September 30, 2016 filed with the SEC on November 17, 2016 . We recommend that the financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended September 30, 2016 .
Principles of Consolidation— We have one reportable segment, semiconductors and modules. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of our majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
We have a 52 or 53-week fiscal year ending on the Friday closest to the last day of September. The fiscal years 2017 and 2016 include 52 weeks. To offset the effect of holidays, for fiscal years in which there are 53 weeks, we include the extra week arising in our fiscal years in the first quarter.
  Use of Estimates —The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities during the reporting periods, the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we base estimates and assumptions on historical experience, currently available information and various other factors that management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates and assumptions.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements —Our Recent Accounting Pronouncements are described in the notes to our September 30, 2016 consolidated financial statements, which were included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year ended September 30, 2016 .
In September 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2015-16, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments , which eliminates the requirement for an acquirer in a business combination to account for measurement-period adjustments retrospectively. Acquirers will now recognize measurement-period adjustments during the period in which they determine the amount of the adjustment. This ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015, and should be applied prospectively to adjustments for provisional amounts that occur after the effective date. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

2. ACQUISITIONS
Acquisition of Applied Micro Circuits Corporation— On January 26, 2017 we completed the acquisition of Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (“AppliedMicro”), a global provider of silicon solutions for next-generation cloud infrastructure and cloud data centers, as well as connectivity products for edge, metro and long-haul communications equipment (the “AppliedMicro Acquisition”). We acquired AppliedMicro in order to expand our business in enterprise and cloud data center applications. In connection with the AppliedMicro Acquisition, we acquired all of the outstanding common stock of AppliedMicro for total consideration of $695.4 million , which included cash paid of $287.1 million , less $56.8 million of cash acquired, and equity issued at a fair value of $465.1 million . In conjunction with the equity issued, we granted vested out-of-money stock options and unvested restricted stock units to replace outstanding vested out-of-money stock options and unvested restricted stock units of AppliedMicro. The total fair value of granted vested out-of-money stock options and unvested restricted stock units was $14.5 million , of which $9.3 million was attributable to pre-combination service and was included in the total consideration transferred. We funded the AppliedMicro Acquisition with cash on hand and short term investments. For the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 , we recorded transaction costs of $8.3 million and $11.8 million , respectively. We recorded transaction costs related to the acquisition in selling, general and administrative expense, except for $ 1.0 million related to equity issuance costs which was recorded to additional paid in capital. The AppliedMicro Acquisition was accounted for as a stock purchase and the operations of AppliedMicro have been included in our consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition.
We recognized the AppliedMicro assets acquired and liabilities assumed based upon the fair value of such assets and liabilities measured as of the date of acquisition. The aggregate purchase price for AppliedMicro has been allocated to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair value at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the acquired net assets represents cost and revenue synergies specific to the Company, as well as non-capitalizable intangible assets, such as the employee workforce acquired, and has been allocated to goodwill, none of which will be tax deductible.
The purchase accounting is preliminary and subject to completion including certain fair value measurements, particularly the finalization of the valuation assessment of the acquired tangible and intangible assets. The adjustments arising from the completion of the outstanding matters may materially affect the preliminary purchase accounting.
In connection with the acquisition of AppliedMicro, we entered into a plan to divest a portion of AppliedMicro's business specifically related to its compute business (the "Compute business"). Accordingly these assets and liabilities are accounted for as discontinued operations and classified as assets and liabilities held for sale.
The following table summarizes the total estimated acquisition consideration (in thousands):

Acquisition of FiBest Limited— On December 9, 2015, we completed the acquisition of FiBest Limited (“FiBest”) a Japan-based merchant market component supplier of optical sub-assemblies (“FiBest Acquisition”). We acquired FiBest to expand our position in optical networking components. In connection with the FiBest Acquisition, all of the outstanding equity interests (including outstanding options) of FiBest were exchanged for aggregate consideration of $59.1 million including cash of $47.5 million and assumed debt of $11.6 million . We funded the FiBest Acquisition with cash on hand. There were no transaction costs recorded in the six months ended March 31, 2017 . For the six months ended April 1, 2016 we recorded transaction costs of $2.7 million as selling, general and administrative expenses related to this acquisition. The FiBest Acquisition was accounted for as a stock purchase and the operations of FiBest have been included in our consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition.
We recognized the FiBest assets acquired and liabilities assumed based upon the fair value of such assets and liabilities measured as of the date of acquisition. The aggregate purchase price for FiBest has been allocated to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the acquired net assets represents cost and revenue synergies specific to the Company, as well as non-capitalizable intangible assets, such as the employee workforce acquired, and has been allocated to goodwill, none of which is tax deductible.
During the quarter ended December 30, 2016, we recorded an adjustment of $0.2 million primarily related to other liabilities and an adjustment of the deferred tax liability associated with the FiBest Acquisition. We finalized our allocation of purchase price during the quarter ended December 30, 2016. The final allocation of purchase price as of December 30, 2016, is as follows (in thousands):

Acquisition of Aeroflex/Metelics Inc.— On December 14, 2015, we acquired Aeroflex/Metelics, Inc. (“Metelics”), a diode supplier for aggregate cash consideration of $38.0 million , subject to customary working capital and other adjustments (“Metelics Acquisition”). We acquired Metelics to expand our diode business. We funded the acquisition with cash on hand. The Metelics Acquisition was accounted for as a stock purchase and the operations of Metelics have been included in our consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition. For the six months ended March 31, 2017 , no material transaction costs were recorded. For the six months ended April 1, 2016 , we recorded transaction costs of $0.5 million as selling, general and administrative expenses related to this acquisition.
We recognized the Metelics assets acquired and liabilities assumed based upon the fair value of such assets and liabilities measured as of the date of acquisition. The aggregate purchase price for Metelics has been allocated to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the acquired net assets represents cost and revenue synergies specific to the Company, as well as non-capitalizable intangible assets, such as the employee workforce acquired, and has been allocated to goodwill, which is tax deductible due to a 338(h)(10) election.

3. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
In connection with the acquisition of AppliedMicro, we entered into a plan to divest its Compute business. As of March 31, 2017 , the Compute business is being actively marketed, negotiations are preliminary and the sale is expected to be completed within twelve months from the date of acquisition. We are accounting for the business as a discontinued operation.

11



In August 2015, we sold our Automotive business to Autoliv ASP Inc. (“Autoliv”), as the Automotive business was not consistent with our long-term strategic vision from both a growth and profitability perspective. The agreed consideration included $82.1 million in cash paid at closing and $18.0 million payable in eighteen months pending resolution of any contingencies as part of an indemnification agreement, plus the opportunity to receive up to an additional $30.0 million in cash based on achievement of revenue-based earnout targets through fiscal year 2019.  Additionally, we entered into a consulting agreement pursuant to which we may provide Autoliv with certain non-design advisory services for a period of two years following the closing of the transaction for up to $15.0 million in cash (the "Consulting Agreement").
During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we received $18.0 million , the full amount of the indemnification escrow. The remainder of the consideration to be received from Autoliv, if any, including any additional amounts related to the Consulting Agreement, will be accounted for in discontinued operations when the contingencies are finalized and the proceeds, if any, become realizable.
Other income recorded during the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 and April 1, 2016 from the Automotive business related to the Consulting Agreement.

4. INVESTMENTS
All investments are short term in nature and are invested in corporate bonds, restricted money market funds, commercial paper and agency bonds, and are classified as available-for-sale. Money market funds include restricted investments in mutual funds acquired in connection with the acquisition of AppliedMicro, which are expected to be liquidated during our fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2017. The amortized cost, gross unrealized holding gains or losses, and fair value of our investments by major investment type as of March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016 are summarized in the tables below (in thousands):

5. FAIR VALUE
We group our financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis in three levels, based on the markets in which the assets and liabilities are traded and the reliability of the assumptions used to determine fair value. These levels are:
Level 1  - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.  
Level 2 - Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets), or model-driven valuations in which all significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated with, observable market data.
Level 3  - Fair value is derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs are unobservable, including assumptions and judgments made by us.
Assets and Liabilities Measured and Recorded at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
We measure certain assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis such as our financial instruments and derivatives. There have been no transfers between Level 1, 2 or 3 assets or liabilities during the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 .

13



Money market funds are actively traded and consist of highly liquid investments with original maturities of 90 days or less . They are measured at their net asset value and classified as Level 1 assets. Corporate and agency bonds and commercial paper are categorized as Level 2 assets except where sufficient quoted prices exist in active markets, in which case such securities are categorized as Level 1 assets. These securities are valued using third-party pricing services. These services may use, for example, model-based pricing methods that utilize observable market data as inputs. We generally use quoted prices for recent trading activity of assets with similar characteristics to the debt security or bond being valued. The securities and bonds priced using such methods are generally classified as Level 2 assets. Broker dealer bids or quotes on securities with similar characteristics may also be used.

The fair values of the contingent consideration liabilities were estimated based upon a risk-adjusted present value of the probability-weighted expected payments by us. Specifically, we considered base, upside and downside scenarios for the operating metrics upon which the contingent payments are to be based. Probabilities were assigned to each scenario and the probability weighted payments were discounted to present value using risk-adjusted discount rates.

8. DEBT
On May 8, 2014, we entered into a credit agreement (“Credit Agreement”) with a syndicate of lenders that provided for term loans in an aggregate principal amount of $350.0 million , which mature in May 2021 (“Initial Term Loans”) and a revolving credit facility of $100.0 million initially, which matures in May 2019 (“Revolving Facility”). In February 2015, we executed an amendment to the Credit Agreement that increased our aggregate borrowing capacity under the Revolving Facility to $130 million . The Initial Term Loans were issued with an original issue discount of 0.75% , which is being amortized over the term of the Initial Term Loans using the straight-line method, which approximates the effective interest rate method.
On August 31, 2016, we entered into an amendment (“Incremental Term Loan Amendment”) to our Credit Agreement which provided for incremental term loans in an aggregate principal amount of $250 million , which mature in May 2021 (“Incremental Term Loans”, together with the Initial Term Loans, “Term Loans”). The terms of the Incremental Term Loans are identical to the terms of the Initial Term Loans, other than with respect to upfront fees, original issue discount and arrangement, structuring or similar fees payable in connection therewith. The Incremental Term Loans were issued with an original issue discount of 0.95% , which is being amortized over the term of the Incremental Term Loans using the straight-line method, which approximates the effective interest rate method.
On March 10, 2017, we entered into multiple amendments to our Credit Agreement (the "March 2017 Amendments"), which consisted of (i) the Second Incremental Amendment, by and among MACOM, Barclays Bank PLC and Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as Administrative Agent, (ii) the Refinancing Amendment, by and among MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc., the lenders party thereto and Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as Administrative Agent and (iii) Amendment No. 4 to the Credit Agreement, by and among MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc., the revolving credit lenders and Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as Administrative Agent. Pursuant to the March 2017 Amendments, we increased the revolving credit commitments available under our revolving credit facility by $30.0 million to $160.0 million . No amounts were drawn under the increased revolving credit commitments on the closing date of the March 2017 Amendments or as of March 31, 2017.
In addition, pursuant to the March 2017 Amendments, our existing Term Loans were refinanced at a reduced interest rate. The Term Loans will bear interest at: (i) for LIBOR loans for any interest period, a rate per annum equal to the LIBOR rate as determined by the administrative agent, plus an applicable margin in the range of 2.75% to 3.00% (based on our total net leverage ratio being within certain defined ranges); and (ii) for base rate loans, a rate per annum equal to the greater of (x) the prime rate quoted in the print edition of the Wall Street Journal, Money Rates Section, (y) the federal funds rate plus one-half of 1.00% and (z) the LIBOR rate applicable to a one-month interest period plus 1.00% (but, in each case, not less than 1.00% ), plus an applicable margin in the range of 1.75% to 2.00% (based on our total net leverage ratio being within certain defined ranges). Interest on the Term Loans is payable quarterly. The effective interest rate on our Term Loans was 3.86% as of March 31, 2017 .
Further, pursuant to the March 2017 Amendments, the Credit Agreement was amended to provide that the financial covenant under the revolving credit facility would only be tested if, as of the last date of any fiscal quarter, the aggregate amount outstanding under the revolving credit facility (other than with respect to (a) undrawn letters of credit in an amount not to exceed $5.0 million and (b) letters of credit that have been cash collateralized pursuant to the Credit Agreement) exceeds 35% of the revolving credit commitments under the Company’s revolving credit facility. Prior to the Revolver Amendment, the threshold for testing the financial covenant was set at 25% of the revolving credit commitments under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

We incurred $8.7 million in fees for the issuance of the Credit Agreement in May 2014, and $3.2 million in fees for the issuance of the Incremental Term Loan Amendment in August 2016, which were initially recorded as deferred financing costs and are being amortized over the life of the Credit Agreement as interest expense. In March 2017, we incurred an additional $1.0 million in fees for the issuance of the March 2017 Amendments. In connection with the March 2017 Amendments, we determined that $0.9 million of deferred costs previously capitalized should be expensed as a loss on extinguishment of debt related to syndicated lenders whose debt was extinguished. As of March 31, 2017 , approximately $8.2 million of deferred financing costs remain unamortized, of which $6.9 million is related to the Incremental Term Loans and is recorded as a direct reduction of the recognized debt liabilities in our accompanying consolidated balance sheet, and $1.3 million is related to the Revolving Facility and is recorded in other assets in our accompanying consolidated balance sheet.
The Term Loans and Incremental Term Loans are secured by a first priority lien on substantially all of our assets and provide that we must comply with certain financial and non-financial covenants. As of March 31, 2017 , we were in compliance with all financial and non-financial covenants under the Credit Agreement and we had $588.5 million of outstanding Term Loan borrowings under the Credit Agreement and $160.0 million of borrowing capacity under our Revolving Facility.

9. CAPITAL LEASE AND FINANCING OBLIGATIONS
Corporate Facility Financing Obligation
On May 26, 2016, we entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (“Purchase Agreement”) with Calare Properties, Inc., a Delaware corporation (together with its affiliates, the “Buyer”) for the sale and subsequent leaseback of our corporate headquarters, located at 100 Chelmsford Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. The transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement closed on December 28, 2016, at which time we also entered into three lease agreements with the Buyer including: (1) a 20 -year leaseback of the facility located at 100 Chelmsford Street (the “100 Chelmsford Lease”), (2) a 20 -year build-to-suit lease arrangement for the construction and subsequent lease back of a new facility to be located at 144 Chelmsford Street (the “144 Chelmsford Lease”), and (3) a 14 -year building lease renewal of an adjacent facility at 121 Hale Street (the “121 Hale Lease”, and together with the 100 Chelmsford Lease and the 144 Chelmsford Lease, the “Leases”).
Because the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement and the related Leases were negotiated and consummated at the same time and in contemplation of one another to achieve the same commercial objective, the transactions are accounted for by us as a single unit of accounting. In addition, the Leases were determined to represent a failed sale-leaseback due to our continuing involvement in the properties in the form of non-recourse financing. As a result, the Leases are accounted for under the financing method and we will be the deemed accounting owner under the arrangement, including the assets to be constructed under the 144 Chelmsford Lease. We will continue to recognize the existing building and improvements sold under the Purchase Agreement, capitalize the 121 Hale Street building as well as the assets constructed under the Leases, and depreciate the assets over the shorter of their estimated useful lives or the lease terms. The sale proceeds from the Purchase Agreement of $8.2 million (which includes $4.2 million in cash and $4.0 million in construction allowances) and the fair value of the 121 Hale Street building of $4.0 million were recognized as a financing obligation on our balance sheet and are being amortized over the 20 -year lease term based on the minimum lease payments required under the Leases and our incremental borrowing rate. Future construction

17



costs funded by the Buyer under the 144 Chelmsford Lease will be recognized as additional financing obligations on our balance sheet as incurred and will be amortized over the 20 -year lease term based on the minimum lease payments required under the Leases and our incremental borrowing rate.
As a result of the failed sale-leaseback accounting, we calculated a financing obligation as of the December 28, 2016 inception of the lease based on the future minimum lease payments discounted at 8.5% . The discount rate represents the estimated incremental borrowing rate over the lease term of 20 -years. The minimum lease payments are recorded as interest expense and in part as a payment of principal reducing the financing obligation. The real property assets in the transaction remain on the consolidated balance sheets and continue to be depreciated over the remaining useful lives. As of March 31, 2017 , approximately $12.2 million of the financing obligation was outstanding associated with the Leases.
Acquired Capital Leases
In connection with the FiBest Acquisition in December 2015 and the acquisition of BinOptics Corporation (“BinOptics Acquisition”) in December 2014 we assumed certain capital lease obligations, of which approximately  $2.8 million was outstanding as of  March 31, 2017 .
As of March 31, 2017 , future minimum payments under capital lease obligations and financing obligations related to the Leases were as follows (in thousands):

Our trade name is an indefinite-lived intangible assets. During development, in-process research and development (“IPR&D”) is not subject to amortization and is tested for impairment annually or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired. The impairment test consists of a comparison of the fair value to its carrying amount. If the carrying value exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess. Once an IPR&D project is complete, it becomes a definite long-lived intangible asset and is evaluated for impairment in accordance with our policy for long-lived assets.
Accumulated amortization for acquired technology and customer relationships were $89.8 million and $61.9 million , respectively, as of March 31, 2017 , and $76.7 million and $48.1 million , respectively, as of September 30, 2016 .
11. STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY
We have authorized 10 million shares of $0.001 par value preferred stock and 300 million shares of $0.001 par value common stock as of March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016 . The outstanding shares of our common stock as of March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016 , presented in the accompanying consolidated statements of stockholders’ equity exclude 200 and 3,300 unvested shares of restricted stock awards, respectively, issued as compensation to employees and directors that remained subject to forfeiture.
Common Stock Warrants —In March 2012, we issued warrants to purchase 1,281,358 shares of common stock for $14.05 per share. The warrants expire December 21, 2020 , or earlier as per the terms of the agreement, including immediately following consummation of a sale of all or substantially all assets or capital stock or other equity securities, including by merger, consolidation, recapitalization, or similar transactions. We do not currently have sufficient registered and available shares to immediately satisfy a request for registration, if such a request were made. As of March 31, 2017 , no exercise of the warrants had occurred and no request had been made to register the warrants or any underlying securities for resale by the holders.
We are recording the estimated fair values of the warrants as a long-term liability in the accompanying consolidated financial statements with changes in the estimated fair value being recorded in the accompanying statements of operations. See Note 5 - Fair Value for additional information related to the fair value of our warrant liability.

13. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
From time to time we may be subject to commercial disputes, employment issues, claims by other companies in the industry that we have infringed their intellectual property rights and other similar claims and litigations. Any such claims may lead to future litigation and material damages and defense costs. Other than as set forth below, we were not involved in any material pending legal proceedings during the quarter ended March 31, 2017 .
GaN Lawsuit Against Infineon. On April 26, 2016, we and our wholly-owned subsidiary Nitronex, LLC brought suit against Infineon Technologies Americas Corporation (“Infineon Americas”) and Infineon Technologies AG (“Infineon AG” and collectively, with Infineon Americas, “Infineon”) in the Federal District Court for the Central District of California, seeking injunctive relief, monetary damages, and specific performance of certain contractual obligations. On July 19, 2016, we filed a first amended complaint, and, on November 21, 2016, we filed a second amended complaint. After motions to dismiss certain claims from MACOM’s second amended complaint were denied on February 28, 2017, Infineon AG answered on March 24, 2017, asserting no counterclaims.  Infineon Americas also answered and counterclaimed on March 24, 2017 and then submitted amended counterclaims on April 14, 2017, asserting counterclaims of patent infringement and breach of contract and seeking a declaration that a certain license agreement has been terminated. MACOM’s response to the counterclaims is currently due on April 28, 2017.
The suit arises out of agreements relating to GaN patents that were executed in 2010 by Nitronex Corporation (acquired by us in 2014) and International Rectifier Corporation (“International Rectifier”) (acquired by Infineon AG in 2015). We assert claims for breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, declaratory judgment of contractual rights, declaratory judgment of non-infringement of patents, and, against Infineon AG only, intentional interference with contract. If successful, the relief sought in our first amended complaint would, among other remedies, require Infineon to assign back to us certain GaN-related Nitronex patents that were previously assigned to International Rectifier and enjoin Infineon from proceeding with its marketing and sales of certain types of GaN-on-Si products.  In an order dated October 31, 2016, the Court granted us a preliminary injunction against Infineon, which then issued on December 8, 2016 and was modified on March 6, 2017. The preliminary injunction declares that an exclusive licensing arrangement between us and Infineon that Infineon had purported to terminate is still in effect and prohibits Infineon Americas and others acting in concert with it from engaging in certain activities in our exclusive field, which includes RF power amplifiers for cellular base stations. Infineon appealed the preliminary injunction order to the Federal Circuit on January 3, 2017, and MACOM appealed the modification order on April 5, 2017. The first appeal is now fully briefed,

20



but no date has been set for oral argument. MACOM’s brief in the second appeal is currently due on June 5, 2017. Meanwhile, the district court case is proceeding, with expedited discovery currently occurring on Infineon’s potential violations of the preliminary injunction and a case scheduling conference set for June 26, 2017. 
With respect to the above legal proceeding, we are not able to reasonably estimate the amount or range of any possible loss, and accordingly have not accrued or disclosed any related amounts of possible loss in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.
14. RESTRUCTURINGS
We have periodically implemented restructuring actions in connection with broader plans to reduce staffing, reduce our internal manufacturing footprint and, generally, reduce operating costs. The restructuring expenses are primarily comprised of direct and incremental costs related to headcount reductions including severance and outplacement fees for the terminated employees, as well as facility closure costs.
The following is a summary of the costs incurred and remaining balances included in accrued expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2017 (in thousands):

The restructuring expenses recorded to date are expected to be paid through the remainder of fiscal year 2017 . Our restructuring charges incurred to date are primarily employee related with non-employee related charges determined to be immaterial. We expect to incur additional restructuring costs of approximately $0.6 million to $1.6 million during the remainder of calendar year 2017 as we complete restructuring actions primarily associated with facility consolidations.
15. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
Stock Plans
As of March 31, 2017 , we had 16.4 million  shares available for future issuance under our 2012 Omnibus Incentive Plan (as Amended and Restated) (the “2012 Plan”), and 3.1 million shares available for issuance under our Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”). Under the 2012 Plan, we have the ability to issue incentive stock options (“ISOs”), non-statutory stock options (“NSOs”), performance based non-statutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock (“RSAs”), restricted stock units (“RSUs”), performance-based stock units (“PRSUs”), performance shares and other equity-based awards to employees, directors and outside consultants. The ISOs and NSOs must be granted at a price per share not less than the fair value of our common stock on the date of grant. Options granted to date primarily vest based on certain market-based and performance-based criteria as described below. Options granted generally have a term of seven to ten years. Certain of the share-based awards granted and outstanding as of March 31, 2017 are subject to accelerated vesting upon a change in control. There were no modifications to share-based awards during the periods presented. As of March 31, 2017 , total unrecognized compensation cost related to the employee stock purchase plan was not material.
Share-Based Compensation

As of March 31, 2017 , the total unrecognized compensation costs, adjusted for estimated forfeitures, related to outstanding stock options, restricted stock awards and units including awards with time-based and performance based vesting was $76.4 million , which we expect to recognize over a weighted-average period of 3.0 years.

Stock Options
We had 1.3 million stock options outstanding as of March 31, 2017 , with a weighted-average exercise price per share of $28.56 and weighted-average remaining contractual term of 5.6 years . The aggregate intrinsic value of the stock options outstanding as of March 31, 2017 was $26.9 million which represents our closing stock price value on the last trading day of the period in excess of the weighted-average exercise price multiplied by the number of options outstanding.
During November 2016, we granted 310,000 non-qualified stock options with a grant date fair value of $4.1 million that are subject to vesting only upon the market price of the Company’s underlying public stock closing above a certain price target within seven years of the date of grant. These non-qualified stock options with market related vesting conditions are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model, using a volatility rate of 32.2% , a risk-free rate of 1.84% , a strike price of $40.25 and a term of seven years . Share-based compensation expense is recognized regardless of the number of awards that are earned based on the market condition and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the estimated service period of approximately three years . If the required service period is not met for these options then the share-based compensation expense would be reversed. In the event that the Company’s common stock achieves the target price of $66.96 per share based on a 30 day trailing average prior to the end of the estimated service period, any remaining unamortized compensation cost will be recognized.
During January 2017, we granted 10,000 non-qualified stock options with a grant date fair value of $0.2 million that are subject to vesting only upon the market price of the Company’s underlying public stock closing above a certain price target within seven years of the date of grant. These non-qualified stock options with market related vesting conditions are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model, using a volatility rate of 34.5% , a risk-free rate of 2.25% , a strike price of $46.28 and a term of seven years . Share-based compensation expense is recognized regardless of the number of awards that are earned based on the market condition and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the estimated service period of approximately three years . If the required service period is not met for these options then the share-based compensation expense would be reversed. In the event that the Company’s common stock achieves the target price of $80.70 per share based on a 30 day trailing average prior to the end of the estimated service period, any remaining unamortized compensation cost will be recognized.
The total intrinsic value of options exercised was $0.3 million and $1.8 million for the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 , respectively, and was $0.8 million and $2.7 million for the three and six months ended April 1, 2016 , respectively.
