Section 1 - Registrant's Business and Operations

   Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

     On January 8, 2006, Texas Instruments Incorporated (“TI”) entered into an Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement”) with S&C Purchase Corp., an affiliate of Bain Capital, LLC (“Bain”), providing for the sale of substantially all of the assets and liabilities of, as well as 100% of the stock of certain foreign subsidiaries related to, TI’s Sensors & Controls business unit (“Sensors & Controls”). Under the terms of the Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement, the purchase price payable in cash for Sensors & Controls will be U.S. $3.0 billion, subject to adjustment based on a determination of working capital at closing. The parties will cross-license certain technology and intellectual property to one another following the closing for purposes of the continuing conduct of their respective businesses. The transaction is subject to antitrust approvals and other customary closing conditions.

     A copy of the Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement is included herein as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

     The Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement governs the contractual rights between the parties in relation to the transaction. The summary of its terms has been included above, and the Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement has been filed as an exhibit to this Form 8-K, to provide you with information regarding the terms of the agreement and are not intended to modify or supplement any factual disclosures about TI or Sensors & Controls in our public reports filed with the SEC. In particular, the Asset and Stock Purchase Agreement and related summary are not intended to be, and should not be relied upon as, disclosures regarding any facts and circumstances relating to TI or Sensors & Controls. The representations and warranties have been negotiated with the purposes of establishing the circumstances in which a party may have the right not to close the transaction if the representations and warranties of the other party prove to be untrue due to a change in circumstance or otherwise and allocating risk between the parties, rather than establishing matters as facts. The representations and warranties may also be subject to a contractual standard of materiality different from those generally applicable to shareholders.
