According to the Complaint, Cavium is a provider of semiconductor processors that enable intelligent networking, communications, and security applications. The Company’s product line includes multi-core processors for embedded and data center applications, network connectivity for serve and switches, storage connectivity, and security processors for offload and appliance.
On November 20, 2017, Cavium and Marvell issued a joint press release announcing the Proposed Merger. On December 21, 2017, Defendants caused the S-4 to be filed with the SEC in connection with the Proposed Merger. The S-4 solicits the Company’s shareholders to vote in favor of the Proposed Merger.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
