Transactions with the Sponsors, Sensata Investment Co. and our Management


Upon the close of the 2006 Acquisition, the Sponsors contributed $985.0 million to Sensata Investment Co., which contributed those proceeds to us, and in exchange received 31,636,360 of our ordinary shares, €0.01 nominal value per share, and €616.9 million of deferred payment certificates. The deferred payment certificates were legally issued as debt and provided the holder with a 14% yield on the principal amount.


In May 2006, we granted 20,025 restricted ordinary shares and 390,487 deferred payment certificates with an aggregate value of $623 thousand to members of our senior management who were employees of Texas Instruments immediately prior to the 2006 Acquisition and who forfeited restricted securities upon the divestiture of the S&C business from Texas Instruments. We made these grants to compensate these employees for the loss of such restricted securities. These grants were intended to approximate the value of the forfeited restricted securities.


The table below summarizes the material differences between the terms of the restricted securities held by such employees under the restricted securities plan of Texas Instruments and the terms of the restricted securities that we granted to such employees under our restricted securities plan in May 2006.
