Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Effective as of December 1, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), Alpha & Omega Semiconductor (Shanghai) Ltd. (“AOS SH”) and Agape Package Manufacturing (Shanghai) Limited (“APM SH” and, together with AOS SH, the “Sellers”), each a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (the “Company” or “AOS”), entered into a share transfer agreement (the “STA”) with a third-party investor (the “Investor”), pursuant to which the Sellers sold to the Investor approximately 2.1% of  outstanding equity interest held by the Sellers in the joint venture in Chongqing (the “JV Company”) for an aggregate purchase price of RMB 108 million (or approximately $16.9 million based on the currency exchange rate as of December 1, 2021) (the “Transaction”).  The STA contained customary representations, warranties and covenants.

Also on the Effective Date, the Investor and the other shareholders of the JV Company, including AOS and the Sellers, entered into the Fourth Supplementary Agreement (the “Fourth Amendment”) to the Joint Venture Contract dated as of March 29, 2016 among the parties named thereto (as amended and supplemented from time to time, the “JV Contract”).  Pursuant to the Fourth Amendment, the parties agree that, among other things, (a) AOS’s right to designate directors on the board of the JV Company will be three (3) out of seven (7) directors, instead of four (4) directors as provided under the JV Contract prior to the Transaction, and (b) the shareholders will facilitate the establishment of an employment stock ownership plan for the JV Company.

The Transaction was closed on December 2, 2021 (the “Closing Date”).

The above disclosure is a summary and qualified in its entirety by the STA and the Fourth Amendment, copies of which will be filed as exhibits to the Company’s Quarterly Report for the period ending December 31, 2021.

Item 2.01  Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Reference is made to the information disclosed under Item 1.01 above, which information is incorporated herein by reference.

As a result of the Transaction, as of the Closing Date, AOS’s equity interest in the JV Company decreased from 50.9% to 48.8%, and AOS no longer has a controlling financial interest in the JV Company.  Accordingly, AOS has made a preliminary determination that it will deconsolidate the JV Company’s financial statements and results of operations from AOS’s consolidated financial statements (the “Deconsolidation”), effective as of the Closing Date, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification, or ASC, 810-10-40-4(c), Consolidation.  Following the Deconsolidation, AOS will account for its interest in the JV Company using the equity method of accounting effective beginning on the Closing Date.  In connection with the Deconsolidation, AOS expects to record in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 ending December 31, 2021 a significant non-cash gain to recognize the difference between the carrying value and estimated fair value of its interest in the JV Company as of the Closing Date.  The assessment as to whether the JV Company will be deconsolidated is ongoing and will be finalized in conjunction with the Company’s financial statement close process for the three months ending December 31, 2021.

We have included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Report the unaudited pro forma consolidated condensed balance sheet as of September 30, 2021, derived from our latest unaudited consolidated condensed balance sheet filed in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and unaudited pro forma consolidated condensed statements of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 as if the Deconsolidation had occurred on July 1, 2020.

Item 7.01  Regulation FD Disclosure.

On December 7, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing the closing of the Transaction and the Deconsolidation.  A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Report and is incorporated by reference into this Item 7.01.

Item 9.01   Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(b) Pro Forma Financial Information.

Unaudited Pro Forma Consolidated Condensed Financial Information of the Registrant, which reflects the Deconsolidation, is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

(d)   Exhibits.
