                                     PART I
 

ITEM I.  BUSINESS
 
GENERAL
 
     Cypress Semiconductor Corporation ("Cypress" or the "Company") designs,
develops, manufactures and markets a broad line of high performance digital
integrated circuits for a range of markets, including high performance
computers, telecommunications, instrumentation and military systems. The Company
currently offers approximately 350 products, most of which are designed to equal
or exceed the speed performance of other equivalent commercially available
products, from its static memory, programmable products, computation products
and data communications divisions. Cypress's products are marketed worldwide
through a network of 23 North American sales offices, six North American
distributors, 15 U.S. sales representative firms, nine European sales offices,
an office in Japan and 35 international sales representative firms. The Company
sells its products to a wide range of customers, including AT&T, Alcatel, Cisco
Systems, Digital Equipment, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Rockwell International and
Silicon Graphics. In 1993, international sales contributed 27% of the Company's
total sales.
 
     The Company's initial strategy was to provide innovative high performance
CMOS (complementary metal-oxide silicon) integrated circuits to niche markets,
which were believed to be too small to warrant the considerable investment which
would be required for the major established international semiconductor
manufacturers to target those markets. The Company modified its strategy during
1992 to focus on selected high volume products, particularly in the static RAM
and PLD markets, to bring those products to market quickly and at reduced cost
and to achieve significant market acceptance of those targeted products. Because
of the highly competitive nature of the semiconductor industry, its cyclicality
and anticipated pressure on average selling prices over the life of any
particular product, the Company's ability to successfully implement this
strategy and achieve its revenue, earnings and gross margin goals will depend
upon a number of factors, including its ability to maintain its position in the
high performance markets, to increase its presence in the more competitive high
volume markets, to continue to successfully design and develop new products
utilizing advanced semiconductor design and process technologies in a timely
fashion, to improve manufacturing yields and reduce manufacturing costs and to
effectively market and sell its products in light of significant domestic and
international competition.
 
     The Company was incorporated in California in December 1982. The Company's
initial public offering of Common Stock occurred in May 1986 at which time the
Company's Common Stock commenced trading on the Nasdaq National Market. In
February 1987, the Company reincorporated in Delaware. The Company listed its
Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange on October 17, 1988.
 
PRODUCTS
 
     In order to achieve its new strategy, Cypress has created a more efficient
overall organization designed to lower costs and accelerate its response to
market opportunities. The Company has reduced the number of business units from
eight to four -- two focused on core technologies (Static Memory Division and
Programmable Products Division) and two on end-market segments (Data
Communications Division and Computation Products Division). Because the
semiconductor industry is characterized by rapid technological change, resulting
in products with higher speed, densities and performance capabilities and
continuing evolution of process technologies, the Company's success will
continue to depend upon timely development, introduction and market acceptance
of new products in these areas.
 
  STATIC MEMORY DIVISION (SMD)
 
     Static RAMs (Static Random Access Memories).  High speed static RAMs are
used for storage and retrieval of data in computers and other electronic
systems. Because a computer is required to read from or write into its memory
several times to complete an operation, high performance system designers are
very sensitive to memory access time, which can be a major bottleneck in overall
system performance. Fast static RAMs are used for functions such as "cache
memory" to store the data being processed by the computer's
 
                                        1

<PAGE>   3
 
central processing unit (CPU). The static RAM market is characterized by the
requirements for many different "densities" (number of bits per memory circuit)
and "organizations" (number of bits available to the user in a single access of
the RAM). This organizational differentiation of the static RAM market -- when
combined with the different RAM features incorporated by various manufacturers,
the need for both military and commercial products, the need for different
package types and the usual grading of product by speed and power -- produces a
complex market structure. The Company's continued progress in lowering its
manufacturing costs has allowed the Static Memory Division to compete
effectively in the high volume personal computer and workstation markets.
 
     Multichip Modules.  The Company's high density memory and logic modules are
assembled from high performance devices in a single surface mount package in
order to create custom or standard enhanced single circuit equivalents such as
multi-megabit static RAMs and complete cache memories used within many high
performance personal computers. These modules can provide the solution to many
of the advanced circuit "building blocks" required by modern systems designers.
The multichip modules allow the Company increased visibility on customer trends
and future needs for single chip memory products and an additional means to
satisfy the present needs of customer systems already incorporating Cypress
products.
 
  PROGRAMMABLE PRODUCTS DIVISION (PPD)
 
     EPROMs (Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memories).  EPROMs are used in
computers and telecommunications systems to store fixed data which is not
altered during machine operation. Customers buy blank EPROMs and program the
data which is required for a specific application. EPROMs are generally used in
systems such as high performance computers, telecommunication equipment,
military equipment and computer peripherals. In September 1984, Cypress
introduced its first high speed CMOS EPROMs and became one of the first
companies to combine the fast operating speeds of PROMs with the low power
consumption of the CMOS technology. The Company believes that it is one of the
broad-line performance and volume leaders in the fast CMOS EPROM market.
 
     PLDs (Programmable Logic Devices).  The "logic" in an electrical system
performs the non-memory functions, such as "floating-point mathematics," or the
organization and routing of signals throughout a computer system. This
constitutes a significant portion of the circuitry in most systems. The Company
manufactures several logic circuits which are programmable by the user. The
Company's PLD products allow the user to replace many standard logic devices
with a single device, thus reducing package count and cost, improving
performance and allowing miniaturization. Cypress's CMOS PLDs are as fast as the
fastest bipolar PLDs but require 50% less power for the same function at the
equivalent speed. The Company's CMOS PLD products are differentiated based on
organization and complexity, including the number of inputs and whether the
outputs are dedicated or programmable. The Company's PLD portfolio includes
BiCMOS 22V10 at five nanoseconds (ns), the first Flash 22V10 and WARPTM software
development tools based on VHDL (very high speed integrated circuit hardware
description language) which supports the Company's high density PLDs and new
FPGA (field programmable gate array) products.
 
     FCT (Fast CMOS Technology) Logic Devices.  The Company's 1993 acquisition
of certain inventory and technology from Performance Semiconductor Corporation's
FCT product line gives the Company access to widely used logic devices for
implementing bus interface and standard logic functions in high speed systems.
The Company now offers over 50 standard and bus interface functions.
 
  DATA COMMUNICATIONS DIVISION (DATACOM)
 
     The Company's Datacom products serve the high speed data communications
market with a range of products from the physical connection layer to system
level solutions. HOTLinkTM, a high speed, point-to-point serial communications
chip, is the Company's first product addressing this market. HOTLink, along with
future products, will address the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) and fibre
channel communications market segments. The product line also encompasses
related products including: RoboClock, a programmable skew clock buffer which
controls signals for a broad range of systems; a broad range of FIFO (first
in/first out) memories, used for communicating data between systems operating at
different frequencies; bit-slice
 
                                        2

<PAGE>   4
 
microprocessor components, which are used in high performance computers and
controllers; dual port RAMs, which are used in computers and communication
equipment and bus interface products to support the bus interface market,
including a family of VME Controller Devices which provide a complete solution
for insuring proper interfacing between a local BUS and a VME backplane.
 
  COMPUTATION PRODUCTS DIVISION (CPD)
 
     Timing Technology Devices.  The Company serves this market through its
newly acquired subsidiary, IC Designs, Inc. (ICD), in Kirkland, Washington.
Timing technology devices are widely used in personal computers. Consequently,
ICD serves high volume major personal computer manufacturers. ICD's clock
oscillators control the intricate timing of all aspects of a computer system,
including signals for the computer's CPU, keyboard, disk drives, system bus,
serial ports and real-time clock. ICD's clock synthesizer integrates essentially
all clock requirements of a personal computer, thus reducing size, power
consumption and cost. ICD's newly announced programmable metal can oscillator,
QuiXTALTM, will be able to replace individual oscillators and control timing
signals in virtually every type of electronic equipment expanding beyond the
personal computer market.
 
     DRAM Accelerator.  The Company also produces a DRAM (dynamic random access
memory) accelerator, a high performance DRAM controller designed for high end
computer applications to manage the interface between cache and large DRAM
arrays.
 
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
 
     The Company places great emphasis on research and development. This
involves a significant management time commitment to the improvement of research
and development efficiency. The Company's current product strategy requires
rapid development of new products using emerging process technologies while
minimizing research and development costs. The Company performs research and
development at two levels. Research and development relating to process
technology is managed at the corporate level, while research and development
relating to new product design is managed at the operating level by each of the
divisions, in cooperation with the new product production teams.
 
     The Company's research and development expenditures in 1993 were $49.8
million (16% of revenues), compared with $65.0 million (24% of revenues) in 1992
and $71.8 million (25% of revenues) in 1991. The decrease in research and
development spending in 1993 resulted from the sale of its subsidiary, Ross
Technology, Inc., as well as the Company's strategy to focus on its "Top 10"
projects and to limit costs. The Company has converted the focus of its San Jose
wafer fabrication plant to research and development. Primary process efforts are
directed towards developing or enhancing three generations of Cypress's core
CMOS SRAM technologies, including the Company's established 0.8-and 0.65-micron
geometries and emerging 0.5-micron geometry.
 
MANUFACTURING
 
     The Company manufactures its products at three sub-micron wafer fabrication
facilities using its proprietary 0.65, 0.8 and 1.2-micron CMOS, 0.8 and
0.5-micron BiCMOS and 0.65-micron Flash technologies. To further its competitive
position, the Company has implemented programs to reduce manufacturing cycle
times, improve yields and lower costs. Cypress San Jose (Fab 1), the Company's
first fabrication facility, recently upgraded to 6-inch wafers, and is the heart
of Cypress's research and development operations. Cypress Texas (Fab 2) is the
Company's largest wafer fabrication facility. Cypress Minnesota (Fab 3), which
commenced operations in 1991, is the Company's newest wafer fabrication
facility. During 1993, the Company completed the transfer of its assembly and a
majority of its production test manufacturing operations to Thailand. By the end
of 1993, 86% of the Company's assembly and 87% of the test manufacturing was
done by two offshore subcontractors in Thailand and Indonesia. The Company
intends to add manufacturing capacity and related capital equipment.
 
     The process technology for the fabrication of the Company's CMOS
semiconductor products is highly complex and sensitive to dust and other
contaminants, requiring production in a highly controlled, clean
 
                                        3

<PAGE>   5
 
environment. Although the fabrication process is highly controlled, the
equipment may not perform flawlessly. Minute impurities, difficulties in the
production process or defects in the masks can cause a substantial percentage of
the wafers to be rejected or individual die on each wafer to be nonfunctional,
which results in the so called "yield" problem which is indigenous to the
semiconductor industry. The Company's philosophy is to prevent wafer fab yield
loss and/or quality problems through analytical manufacturing controls. The
Company tests its products at various stages in the fabrication process,
performs high temperature burn-in qualification as well as continuous
reliability monitoring on all products, and conducts numerous quality control
inspections throughout the entire production flow using its quality-control
analytical equipment. The Company has, on occasion, experienced delayed product
shipments due to lower than acceptable production yields. Accordingly, to the
extent the Company does not achieve acceptable product yields, its operating
results will be adversely affected.
 
     The raw materials and equipment used in the production of the Company's
integrated circuits are available from several suppliers and the Company is not
dependent upon any single source of supply. Shortages could occur in various
essential materials due to interruption of supply or due to increased demand in
the industry. On July 4, 1993 an explosion destroyed the Sumitomo Chemicals
plant in Niihama, Japan. Through this plant, Sumitomo Chemicals supplied a
significant portion of the world's supply of ECN (epoxy cresolnovolac) which is
necessary to produce the compound that is used in packaging the Company's
devices. The Company was able to reposition its manufacturing to subcontractors
who had an adequate supply of ECN without adversely affecting the Company's
ability to meet customer orders. Other shortages have occurred in the Company's
history and lead times have been extended in the industry on occasion without
adversely affecting the Company.
 
     Federal, state and local regulations impose various environmental controls
on the discharge of chemicals and gases used in the manufacturing process.
Increasing public attention has been focused on the environmental impact of
semiconductor operations. The Company believes that its activities conform to
present environmental regulations in all material respects. However, the Company
has from time to time received notice of non-compliance with certain operations
and filing obligations under applicable federal regulations and local
ordinances. While the Company has not experienced any materially adverse effects
on its operations from governmental regulations, there can be no assurance that
such regulations will not in the future impose the need for additional capital
equipment, penalties or other requirements or result in liability for personal
injury or property damage. Further, any failure by semiconductor companies,
including the Company, to adequately control the use of or restrict the
discharge of hazardous substances could also subject them to significant future
liabilities.
 
MARKETING AND SALES
 
     The Company uses four channels to sell its products: direct OEM (original
equipment manufacturer) sales by the Cypress sales force, direct OEM sales by
manufacturing representative firms, sales through domestic distributors and
sales through international trading companies and representative firms. The
Company's marketing and sales effort is organized around four regions: North
America, Europe, Japan and Asia/Pacific. The Company also has a strategic
accounts group which is responsible for specific customers with worldwide
operations. The Company augments its sales effort with FAEs (field application
engineers) who are specialists in the Company's product portfolio and work with
customers to "design in" Cypress products for their systems. FAEs also help the
Company identify emerging markets and new products.
 
     International revenues were 27% in 1993 compared to 27% in 1992 and 25% in
1991. One distributor accounted for 11% of revenues in 1993 and 10% of revenues
in 1992. In line with industry practices, the Company does not recognize as
revenue sales to distributors until the products have been shipped to end user
customers. The Company warrants its products against defects in materials and
workmanship for a period of one year and the product warranty is generally
limited to a refund of the original purchase price of the product.
 
                                        4

<PAGE>   6
 
BACKLOG
 
     Cypress's sales are typically made pursuant to standard purchase orders for
delivery of catalog products. Generally, the Company's customer relationships
are not subject to long-term contracts. Quantities of the Company's products to
be delivered and delivery schedules, under purchase orders outstanding from time
to time, are frequently revised to reflect changes in customer needs. For these
reasons, the Company's backlog as of any particular date is not representative
of actual sales for any succeeding period and the Company believes that backlog
is not a good indicator of future revenue.
 
COMPETITION
 
     The semiconductor industry is intensely competitive and has been
characterized by price erosion, rapid technological change and heightened
foreign competition in many markets. The industry consists of major domestic and
international semiconductor companies, many of which have substantially greater
financial, technical, marketing, distribution and other resources than the
Company, as well as emerging companies attempting to obtain a share of the
existing market. The Company faces competition from other domestic and foreign
high performance integrated circuit manufacturers, many of which have advanced
technological capabilities and have increased their participation in the CMOS
and BiCMOS market sector. The ability of the Company to compete successfully in
the rapidly evolving high performance end of the integrated circuit technology
spectrum depends on elements both within and outside of its control, including
success in developing new products and process technologies, product quality and
price, diversity of product line, cost effectiveness, the pace at which
customers incorporate the Company's products into their systems, the number and
nature of its competitors and general economic conditions. The Company believes
it competes favorably with respect to developing new products and process
technologies, product quality and price, diversity of product line and cost
effectiveness. Price competition in the future could further erode average
selling prices and adversely affect revenues and operating results.
 
     In the low to medium density static RAM area (16K-bit or less in density),
the Company competes against equivalent products of a few manufacturers such as
Integrated Device Technology (IDT). There is more significant price competition
in the higher-volume 64K-bit and 256K-bit static RAM area in which the Company's
competitors include IDT, Motorola, Micron Technology, Hitachi and other Japanese
and Korean manufacturers, as well as several smaller niche oriented
semiconductor start ups.
 
     There are few CMOS competitors in the relatively small high speed PROM
market. However, with the Company's entry into the EPROM market, the Company
will increasingly compete in CMOS EPROMs with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), SGS
Thompson, Intel and Fujitsu, as well as newer companies such as Atmel and
Waferscale Integration. The Company competes extensively against bipolar PROM
circuit manufacturers such as Philips Corporation, AMD and National
Semiconductor Corporation.
 
     The Company's PLD competition consists of bipolar products from companies
such as AMD, Texas Instruments and National Semiconductor Corporation, and from
CMOS PLDs from larger competitors, including Samsung and AMD, and from a few
newer companies such as Actel, Altera, Lattice Semiconductor and Xilinx.
Additionally, the sale of PLDs is, in part, dependent on the availability of
user design software. Both Altera and Xilinx have such software packages.
 
     The Company's data communications and logic products compete against
bipolar products of similar functionality from established companies such as
AMD, as well as newer versions of these products in CMOS from companies such as
IDT, Samsung and Sharp.
 
     The Company competes against companies such as ICS/Avasem and Chrontel with
respect to timing technology products; IDT, Quality Semiconductor and Pericom
with respect to FCT products; and IDT, among others, with respect to module
products.
 
PATENTS AND LICENSES
 
     The Company currently has 32 patents and has 25 additional patent
applications on file with the United States Patent Office and is preparing to
file several more patent applications. In addition to factors such as
 
                                        5

<PAGE>   7
 
innovation, technological expertise and experienced personnel, the Company
believes that patents are becoming increasingly important to compete in the
industry and has an active program to acquire additional patent protection.
 
     There can be no assurance that any patent owned by the Company will not be
invalidated, circumvented or challenged, that the rights granted thereunder will
provide competitive advantages to the Company or that any of the Company's
pending or future patent applications, whether or not being currently challenged
by applicable governmental patent examiners, will be issued with the scope of
the claims sought by the Company, if at all. Furthermore, there can be no
assurance that others will not develop technologies that are similar or superior
to the Company's technology, duplicate the Company's technology or design around
the patents owned by the Company.
 
     In addition, the Company is currently and may in the future be involved in
litigation with respect to alleged infringement by the Company of another
party's patents, or may in the future be involved in litigation to enforce its
patents or other intellectual property rights, to protect its trade secrets, to
determine the validity or scope of the proprietary rights of others, or to
defend against claims of infringement or invalidity. Such litigation has in the
past and could in the future result in substantial costs and diversion of
resources and payment of substantial damages and/or royalties or prohibitions
against utilization of essential technologies, and could have a material adverse
effect on the Company's business, financial condition or results of operations.
From time to time the Company has received, and may receive in the future,
notice of claims of infringement of other parties' proprietary rights. Although
the Company does not believe that its products or processes infringe the
proprietary rights of any third parties, there can be no assurance that
infringement or invalidity claims (or claims for indemnification resulting from
infringement claims) will not be asserted against the Company or that any such
assertions will not materially adversely affect the Company's business,
financial condition or results of operations. Irrespective of the validity or
the successful assertion of such claims, the Company could incur significant
costs with respect to the defense thereof which could have a material adverse
effect on the Company's business, financial condition or results of operations.
Moreover, if any claims or actions are asserted against the Company, although
the Company might seek to obtain a license under a third party's intellectual
property rights, there can be no assurance that, under such circumstances, a
license would be available under reasonable terms or at all.
 
     The Company has entered into technology license agreements with third
parties which give those parties the right to use patents and other technology
developed by the Company and which give the Company the right to use patents and
other technology developed by such other parties, some of which involve payment
of royalties and some of which involve access to technology used in the
Company's operations. The Company anticipates that it will continue to enter
into such licensing arrangements in the future. There can be no assurance that
such licenses will continue to be available to the Company on commercially
reasonable terms in the future. The loss of or inability to obtain licenses to
key technology in the future could have a material adverse effect on the
Company's business, operating results or financial condition.
 
EMPLOYEES
 
     As of January 3, 1994, the Company and its subsidiaries had 1,262
employees, as compared to 1,529 in 1992. During 1993, Cypress completed its
reductions in work force in connection with the Company's transfer of assembly
and test manufacturing to Thailand and the Company's re-focus of its wafer
fabrication plant in San Jose. The Company's ability to attract and retain
qualified personnel is essential to its continued success. None of the Company's
employees is represented by a collective bargaining agreement, nor has the
Company ever experienced any work stoppage. The Company believes that its
employee relations are good.

comprising a total of approximately 8.5 acres, will be retained for future
expansion of the San Jose building complex.
 
     The Company owns an approximately 65,000 square foot wafer fabrication
facility (Fab 2) in Round Rock, Texas, and an approximately 170,000 square foot
wafer fabrication facility (Fab 3) on 17 acres of land in Bloomington,
Minnesota.
 
     In October 1990, the Company's subsidiary, Multichip Technology
Incorporated, entered into a lease for an approximately 27,000 square foot
manufacturing facility in San Jose, California. The current annual rent expense
for this facility is approximately $364,000 under a lease which expires in
October 1994. In December 1992, Multichip vacated this space and relocated to
the Company's San Jose wafer fabrication facility. The Company does not plan to
renew the lease.
 
     The Company leases additional space for domestic sales and design centers
in Huntsville, Alabama; Calabasas, Irvine and San Diego, California; Denver and
Colorado Springs, Colorado; Orlando and Tampa, Florida; Roswell, Georgia;
Palatine, Illinois; Columbia, Maryland; Minnetonka, Minnesota; Starkville,
Mississippi; Nashua, New Hampshire; Laurence Harbor, New Jersey; Poughkeepsie,
New York; Raleigh, North Carolina; Portland, Oregon; Trevose, Pennsylvania;
Austin, Houston and Richardson, Texas; and Falls Church, Virginia. The Company
leases international sales and design centers in La Hupe, Belgium; Les Lilis
Cedex, France; Orbassano and Rome, Italy; Tokyo, Japan; Taby, Sweden; Cheshire,
Hampshire and Hertfordshire, United Kingdom; and Henstedt-Ulzburg and Zorneding,
Germany.
 

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
     Texas Instruments (TI) has charged Cypress and four other semiconductor
companies with infringement of two patents, primarily covering the plastic
encapsulation process used to package semiconductor devices. This action was
filed before the International Trade Commission (ITC) in Washington, D.C., and
in the U.S. District Court in Dallas, Texas. The ITC has ruled that the plastic
packaging process known as "bottom gating" does infringe, but that "top gating"
used now by Cypress, does not infringe TI's patent. Cypress contends that the
patents are invalid. In March of 1993, the U.S. District Court of Appeals for
the Federal Circuit affirmed the ITC's ruling. No trial date has been set in the
U.S. District Court regarding this matter.
 
     In January and February 1992, the Company and certain of its officers were
named defendants in three purported class-action suits filed in the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of California. The suits filed are for
alleged violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and certain provisions
of state law regarding disclosure of short-term business prospects. In 1992, the
three securities class-action complaints were consolidated by the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of California. The trial date has been scheduled
for June 5, 1995.

     Cypress will vigorously defend itself in these matters and, subject to the
inherent uncertainties of litigation and based upon discovery completed to date,
management believes that the possibility of a material adverse impact on the
Company's financial position as a result of these matters is remote. However,
should the outcome of any of the actions be unfavorable, Cypress may be required
to pay damages and other expenses, which could have a material adverse effect on
the Company's financial position. In addition, the Company could be required to
alter certain of its production processes or products as a result of these
matters.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS
         OF OPERATIONS
 
OVERVIEW
 
     In 1993, the Company reported record revenues of $304.5 million and
returned to profitability recording net income of $8.0 million or $0.21 per
share compared to a net loss of $21.0 million or $(0.56) per share in 1992. The
increases in revenue and net income are the results of the Company's completion
of the restructuring initiated in 1992 and its cost-reduction strategy.
 
     The transfer of assembly and test manufacturing to Thailand was completed.
Domestic work force reductions continued in 1993, resulting in a year-end
headcount of 1,262, as compared to 1,529 at the end of 1992. The Company changed
the focus of its San Jose wafer fabrication plant to research and development
and increased the output of its other production wafer fabrication plants in
Minnesota and Texas. These actions have produced faster cycle times, increased
yields and lower costs, allowing the Company to compete effectively in
higher-volume markets as well as reducing inventory days from 89 in 1992 to 56
days in 1993. The transfer to Thailand has allowed the Company to consolidate
the buildings it occupies in San Jose, California, from five to three.
 
     The Company restructured its subsidiaries in the second quarter of 1993.
The Company sold its subsidiary, Ross Technology, Inc., which had recorded
recurring operating losses, to Fujitsu Limited for $21.8 million. In addition,
the Company acquired the minority interest of the employees of its subsidiaries
Aspen Semiconductor Corporation and Multichip Technology Incorporated. The Aspen
subsidiary was divided into its two product areas and realigned under the
Company's Static Memory and Programmable Products divisions. The Multichip
subsidiary was realigned under the Static Memory division. The subsidiary
restructuring resulted in a net one-time pre-tax credit of $0.4 million.
 
     In the fourth quarter of 1993, the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding
stock of IC Designs, Inc., a timing technology company, for $20.3 million. The
acquisition provides the Company inroads into the broad personal computer
market. The Company also purchased certain inventory and technology of
Performance Semiconductor Corporation's FCT high-speed logic product line for
$5.3 million. The FCT acquisition complements the Company's current products and
allows the Company to provide systems solutions to its customers. As a result of
these purchases, the Company took a one-time pre-tax charge of $18.3 million
(see Note 3 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements).
 
     The Company's balance sheet remains strong. Cash and short-term investment
balances at the end of 1993 totaled $80.6 million, inclusive of the IC Designs
and the FCT product line acquisitions, the Ross sale and a $19.7 million payment
for the repurchase of 1.9 million shares of the Company's common stock.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
     In 1993, revenues increased to a record $304.5 million, compared to $272.2
million in 1992 and $286.8 million in 1991. The most significant revenue growth
was experienced in the Static Memory and Data Communications divisions.
Increases in these divisions more than offset the decrease in average selling
price of 21% from 1992 to 1993 and the loss of revenue due to the sale of Ross
Technology, Inc. Lower manufacturing costs allowed the Company to be more price
competitive and to compete effectively in high-volume markets, also contributing
to higher revenues.
 
     Foreign sales as a percentage of total revenue remained constant at 27% in
1993 and 1992, compared to 25% in 1991.
 
     Cost of revenues as a percent of revenues for 1993 increased to 59%
compared to 58% and 45% in 1992 and 1991, respectively. However, the cost of
revenues as a percent of revenues improved towards the end of 1993, decreasing
from 61% in the fourth quarter of 1992 to 57% in the fourth quarter of 1993.
Steady improvement in the gross margin percentage was realized from the
Company's restructuring and cost reduction strategy.
 
                                       10

<PAGE>   12
 
     Research and development expenses decreased significantly in 1993 dropping
to 16% of revenues compared to 24% of revenues in 1992 and 25% of revenues in
1991. The decrease in R&D can be attributed to the sale of Ross Technology, Inc.
and the Company's strategy to focus on its Top 10 projects and hold R&D to a
slower growth rate than revenue. The Company's program to accelerate new product
design has resulted in a 41% improvement in cycle time from the fourth quarter
of 1992 to the fourth quarter of 1993.
 
     Marketing, general and administrative expenses decreased to 15% of revenues
in 1993 compared to 17% in 1992 and 15% in 1991. By controlling costs and
growing sales, the Company achieved its corporate target of 15% of revenues.
 
     Income from operations was $10.7 million in 1993 compared to an operating
loss of $35.6 million in 1992 and operating income of $44.8 million in 1991.
Included in operating income for 1993 are non-recurring charges of $18.3 million
related to the Company's fourth quarter acquisitions. Operating income without
the acquisition-related non-recurring charges and the one-time pre-tax credit
from restructuring would have been $28.5 million. Included in the 1992 operating
income is a charge for restructuring and other non-recurring costs. Operating
income without the $39.7 million restructuring and other non-recurring costs
charge would have been $4.1 million in 1992.
 
     Net interest income in 1993 decreased to $1.9 million compared to $2.7
million in 1992 and $4.7 million in 1991. Net interest income has decreased from
the prior year due primarily to lower rates of return earned on short-term
investments, and a reduction in the average balance of investments held.
 
     The Company recorded income tax expense of $4.5 million in 1993 compared to
an income tax benefit of $11.9 million in 1992 as a result of the pre-tax loss
of $32.9 million. In 1991, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $17.6
million. The effective tax rate for 1993 was 36.0% compared to 36.2% in 1992 and
34.0% in 1991. In 1992, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting
Standards No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes," which requires use of the
liability method for computing deferred income taxes. In 1991, the Company used
the deferred method under ABP 11. The impact of adopting FAS 109 was not
significant.
 
     1993 net income of $8.0 million was an increase from the 1992 net loss of
$21.0 million, and a decrease from the 1991 net income of $34.2 million. 1993
net income without the acquisition-related non-recurring charges and the
one-time pre-tax credit from restructuring would have been $19.5 million. Net
income in 1992 without the restructuring and other non-recurring costs charge
would have been $4.3 million.
 
FACTORS AFFECTING FUTURE RESULTS
 
     A number of uncertainties exist that could have an impact on the Company's
future, including general economic conditions, the rate of growth of the
networking, computer and telecommunications market, and the acceleration of new
product introductions. The Company's products continue to experience increased
competition and as a result, are subject to decreases in average selling prices.
Typically, the Company requires new orders in a quarter to meet that quarter's
revenue plan. In addition, the semiconductor industry is generally characterized
by a highly competitive, rapidly changing environment, where results are often
significantly impacted by the introduction of new products, new manufacturing
technologies, and rapid changes in the demand for products which can lead to
unpredictability in monthly revenue. Due to the effect of these forces on the
Company's future operations, past performance should be only one indicator of
future performance and investors should not use historical trends to anticipate
results in future periods.
 
     Current pending litigation and claims are set forth in Note 7 of the Notes
to Consolidated Financial Statements. Cypress will vigorously defend itself in
these matters and, subject to the inherent uncertainties of litigation and based
upon discovery completed to date, management believes that the possibility of a
material adverse impact on the Company's financial position as a result of these
matters is remote. However, should the outcome of any of the actions be
unfavorable, Cypress may be required to pay damages and other expenses, which
could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position. In
addition, the Company could be required to alter certain of its production
processes or products as a result of these matters.

<PAGE>   13
 
FINANCIAL CONDITION
 
     The Company's financial condition remained strong throughout 1993. Cash,
cash equivalents and short-term investments at the end of fiscal year 1993 were
$80.6 million, a decrease of $1.4 million after the acquisitions of IC Designs
and the FCT product line, the repurchase of the Company's common stock, and the
sale of Ross Technology, Inc. Cash generated from operating activities was $68.9
million in 1993, an increase of $35.2 million from the prior year. Cash
generated from operations was $33.7 million in 1992 and $66.4 million in 1991.
Improved operating results, coupled with asset management, contributed to the
improvement in 1993.
 
     Cash used for investing activities increased to $41.9 million in 1993
compared to $28.0 million in 1992, but decreased in comparison to the $78.2
million invested in 1991. Net capital expenditures for 1993 have risen to $55.5
million compared to $31.9 million in 1992, but have fallen in comparison to 1991
which had expenditures of $64.8 million. The 1993 increase results from the
Company's expansion of wafer fabrication capacity in its Minnesota and Texas
subsidiaries and conversion of its San Jose R&D wafer fabrication plant from
five-inch to six-inch wafers. In addition, in 1993, the Company acquired IC
Designs and the FCT product line for net cash outlays of $16.6 million and $5.3
million, respectively. The Company plans to continue capital expenditures in
1994 for increased fabrication capacity for production and research and
development. It is also exploring alternatives for an additional back-end
manufacturing facility. Additionally, the Company continues to review
opportunities for acquiring complementary businesses and technologies.
 
     Net cash used by financing activities was $1.8 million in 1993 compared to
$18.4 million in 1992, and a $10.5 million inflow in 1991. The cost of treasury
stock repurchased in 1993 decreased to $19.7 million from $26.4 million in 1992.
A majority of the treasury stock repurchased in 1993 was made during the first
half of the year when the stock price ranged from $9.00 to $10.50 per share. The
cash used to repurchase treasury stock was offset by proceeds from the issuance
of capital stock. In 1993, $20.5 million of cash was generated from the issuance
of capital stock through the exercise of employee stock options, compared to
$11.0 million in 1992 and $22.2 million in 1991.
 
     The Company anticipates that existing sources of liquidity and cash flow
from operations will be sufficient to satisfy its cash needs for the foreseeable
future. The Company may, from time to time, as market conditions warrant,
purchase shares of its own common stock on the open market, invest in
complementary technologies, products, or businesses, or raise additional capital
through public and private markets.

                   NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
NOTE 1:  THE COMPANY AND ITS SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
THE COMPANY
 
     Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (the "Company" or "Cypress") was
incorporated in California in December 1982, commenced business activities in
January 1983, and reincorporated in Delaware in February 1987. The Company
designs, develops and manufactures a broad range of high-performance integrated
circuits. The Company sells to the high-performance computer, military, personal
computer, telecommunications and instrumentation application markets.
 
     The Company's operations outside the U.S. include eleven foreign sales
offices. The assets, liabilities, and results of operations of these entities
were not significant for any of the years presented. The Company conducts
European operations and imports its products through a subsidiary located in the
Netherlands, Cypress Semiconductor International, Incorporated (CSII). Export
revenues, principally to customers in Europe, Japan, and Canada, were 27%, 27%,
and 25% of total revenues in 1993, 1992, and 1991, respectively. As of January
3, 1994, all of the Company's subsidiaries are wholly owned, except for Cypress
Semiconductor (Texas), Inc. (CTI), the Company's wafer fabrication facility in
Texas, which is approximately 17% owned by Altera Corporation (Altera). In 1991,
Altera exercised its remaining options to acquire additional common shares from
CTI, resulting in a gain for Cypress of $2.3 million. Altera receives wafer fab
capacity commensurate with its ownership percentage.
 
     In 1992 and 1991, sales to one customer accounted for 12% and 15% of total
revenues, respectively. Additionally, sales to one distributor accounted for 11%
and 10% of total revenues in 1993 and 1992, respectively.
 
SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
FISCAL YEAR
 
     Fiscal years 1993, 1992, and 1991 ended January 3, 1994, December 28, 1992,
and December 30, 1991, respectively. The Company operates on a 52-or 53-week
fiscal year, ending on the Monday closest to December 31. Fiscal year 1993
comprised 53 weeks and fiscal years 1992 and 1991 each comprised 52 weeks.
 
PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION
 
     The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company
and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions
have been eliminated.
 
REVENUE RECOGNITION
 
     Revenue from product sales direct to customers is recognized upon shipment.
Certain of the Company's sales are made to distributors under agreements
allowing certain rights of return and price protection on merchandise unsold by
the distributors. Accordingly, the Company defers recognition of sales and
profit on such sales until the merchandise is sold by the distributors.
 
CASH EQUIVALENTS AND SHORT-TERM INVESTMENTS
 
     The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments with a maturity at
time of purchase of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash
equivalents and short-term investments are principally composed of time
deposits, certificates of deposit, collateralized mortgage obligations, U.S.
Government agencies' obligations, loan participations, municipal obligations,
and short-term commercial paper, and all are carried at cost plus accrued
interest, which approximates market value.

INVENTORIES
 
     Inventories are valued at standard costs that approximate actual costs, but
not in excess of market. Cost is determined on a first-in, first-out basis.
Market is based on estimated net realizable value. The components of inventories
are as follows:

PROPERTY, PLANT, AND EQUIPMENT
 
     Property, plant, and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation and
amortization are computed for financial reporting purposes using the
straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, or lease
term if less than useful life. Accelerated methods of computing depreciation are
used for tax purposes. The components of property, plant, and equipment are as
follows:

</TABLE>

 
INCOME TAXES
 
     Effective the beginning of 1992, the Company adopted Statement of Financial
Accounting Standards No. 109 (FAS109), "Accounting for Income Taxes." The
adoption of FAS109 changed the Company's method of accounting for income taxes
from the deferred method (APB11) to an asset and liability approach. Previously,
the Company deferred the past tax effects of timing differences between
financial reporting and taxable income. The asset and liability approach
requires recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected
future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial statement
carrying amounts and the tax bases of assets and liabilities. The impact of
adopting FAS109 was not significant.
 
NET INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE
 
     Net income (loss) per share is computed using the weighted average number
of shares of outstanding common stock and common equivalent shares, when
dilutive. Common equivalent shares include shares issuable under the Company's
stock option plans and outstanding warrants as determined by the treasury stock
method. The effect of minority interests in common equivalent shares of
subsidiaries has not been significant.
 
TRANSLATION OF FOREIGN CURRENCIES
 
     The Company translates accounts denominated in foreign currencies in
accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 52, using the
United States dollar as the functional currency. Foreign currency transaction
gains and losses have not been material in any year.

NOTE 2:  RESTRUCTURING AND OTHER NON-RECURRING COSTS
 
     In June of 1993, Cypress continued its restructuring activities by selling
its SPARC(TM) microprocessor subsidiary, Ross Technology, Inc. to Fujitsu
Limited for $21.8 million. The Company received an aggregate of $16.6 million in
1993, and the remaining proceeds will be received in 1994. In addition to the
divestiture of Ross, the Company restructured the equity of two of its
subsidiaries, Aspen Semiconductor Corporation and Multichip Technology
Incorporated, by acquiring employee minority interests consisting of stock
options and stock received from exercised stock options. Aspen Semiconductor was
absorbed into two of Cypress' divisions, Static Memory and Programmable
Products. Multichip Technology is now integrated as a part of the Static Memory
division. These restructuring activities and the divestiture of Ross resulted in
a net one-time pre-tax credit of $408,000.
 
     In 1992, the Company committed to several restructuring actions. In the
second quarter, the Company committed to transferring a significant portion of
its assembly, test, mark, and shipping (back-end production) offshore to
Bangkok, together with a reduction in headcount. In the fourth quarter, the
Company committed to (1) transfer of the remaining portion of back-end
production to Bangkok; (2) consolidation of all wafer production in the
Company's six-inch wafer manufacturing plants in Texas and Minnesota with a
related shutdown of all wafer production in the five-inch wafer manufacturing
plant in San Jose; (3) consolidation of other facilities; and (4) a further
reduction of headcount. These actions resulted in pre-tax charges of $2.5
million and $23.7 million in the second and fourth quarters, respectively.
Restructuring reserves at December 28, 1992, aggregated $8.3 million and were
included in Other Accrued Liabilities. This restructuring was completed in 1993
with no significant adjustments to amounts provided in 1992.
 
     During the fourth quarter of 1992, the Company provided a pre-tax charge of
$13.5 million for several legal matters and claims, some of which were resolved
in 1993 at amounts approximating charges provided in 1992. Remaining legal
reserves at the end of 1993 were $5.1 million and are included in Other Accrued
Liabilities.
 
NOTE 3:  ACQUISITIONS AND RELATED CHARGES
 
     In the fourth quarter of 1993, the Company acquired 100% of IC Designs,
Inc. (ICD), a manufacturer of timing technology products for the personal
computer market, for $16.3 million plus $4 million for certain covenants not to
compete. The aggregate purchase price of $20.3 million was allocated to assets
purchased and liabilities assumed based on independent appraisal as follows:

NOTE 3:  ACQUISITIONS AND RELATED CHARGES -- CONTINUED
     In December 1993, the Company acquired the inventory and technology of the
high-speed logic product line of Performance Semiconductor for an aggregate cost
of $5.3 million. This cost has been allocated based on independent appraisal as
follows:

</TABLE>

 
     The pro forma effect of this product line is not significant. These
acquisitions have been accounted for on the purchase method and the intangible
assets acquired, including covenants not to compete, completed technology and
goodwill, are being amortized over three to five years.
 
     Acquired R&D in process aggregating $14.1 million was charged to expense in
the fourth quarter of 1993. In addition, the Company recorded a non-recurring
charge of $4.2 million for certain restructuring activities of Cypress,
necessitated by the increased volume requirements associated with these
acquisitions. This includes costs of moving a significant portion of back-end
manufacturing operations to an additional Cypress facility, including $2.7
million for the write-down of equipment that will be disposed of and $1.5
million for costs of moving certain equipment.

1985 STOCK OPTION PLAN
 
     In 1985, the Company adopted an Incentive Stock Option Plan (the Plan). The
Plan is administered and terms of option grants are established by the Board of
Directors or a committee of the board. Under terms of the Plan, options may be
granted to the Company's qualified employees and consultants to purchase shares
of common stock. Options generally become exercisable ratably over a vesting
period as determined by the Board of Directors and expire over terms not
exceeding ten years from the date of grant. The option price for all shares
granted under the Plan is equal to the fair market value of the common stock at
the date of grant.

     In April 1992, substantially all outstanding options (3,333,685 shares)
with exercise prices in excess of $9.50 were cancelled and replaced with new
options for a like number of shares having an exercise price of $9.50 per share,
the fair market value on the grant date.
 
DIRECTORS' STOCK OPTION PLAN AND WARRANTS
 
     In October 1988, the Company's Board of Directors adopted the 1988
Directors' Stock Option Plan (the Plan) and 230,000 shares of common stock were
reserved for issuance under the Plan.
 
     In October 1988, options to purchase 40,000 shares of common stock were
granted to each of the Company's then three non-employee directors, for a total
of 120,000 shares, at an exercise price of $9.13, which was the fair market
value of the Company's common stock on the date of grant. Such options vest at
the rate of 25% per year beginning May 29, 1991, and will be followed by
additional automatic grants, providing ongoing vesting at the rate of 10,000
shares per director per year. The initial options become exercisable
cumulatively in 10,000 share increments on May 29 in 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994.
Subsequent options will become exercisable four years after date of grant.
Options expire three months after termination of status as a director and within
six months after death or permanent disability. In 1993, two new non-employees
were appointed to the board of directors and were subsequently granted stock
options. As of January 3, 1994, no shares remained available for future grant
under the Plan.
 
     In October 1987, the Company granted warrants to purchase 40,000 shares of
common stock at $6.25 per share (the fair market value of the shares on the date
of grant) to each of the Company's then three non-employee Directors, for a
total of 120,000 shares, vesting at the rate of 25% per year over a four-year
period, beginning in May 1986, subject to continued service on the Board of
Directors. The warrants were fully exercised during 1991 prior to their May 1991
expiration.

NOTE 4:  COMMON STOCK -- CONTINUED
EMPLOYEE QUALIFIED STOCK PURCHASE PLAN
 
     In 1986, the Company approved an Employee Qualified Stock Purchase Plan
(the Plan), which allows eligible employees of the Company and its subsidiaries
to purchase shares of common stock through payroll deductions. The Plan consists
of consecutive 24-month offering periods composed of four 6-month exercise
periods. The shares can be purchased at the lower of 85% of the fair market
value of the common stock at the date of commencement of this two-year offering
period or at the last day of each 6-month exercise period. Purchases are limited
to 10% of an employee's eligible compensation, subject to a maximum annual
employee contribution limited to a $25,000 market value (calculated as
employee's enrollment price multiplied by purchased shares). Of the 2,800,000
shares authorized under the Plan, 1,874,003 shares were issued through 1993
including, 452,507, 693,936, and 304,426 shares in 1993, 1992, and 1991,
respectively.
 
CONTINGENT WARRANTS
 
     During 1992, the Company provided a consultant contingent warrants to
purchase up to 500,000 shares of the Company's stock for $8.75 per share. The
warrants become exercisable in increasing amounts based upon the Company
achieving specified improved performance criteria. At the time when it becomes
probable that the contingent warrants will become exercisable, they are valued
and charged to expense based on the difference between the then fair market
value of the Company's common stock and the exercise price. In 1993, 229,153
shares were earned by the consultant and became exercisable, resulting in an
$858,000 charge against earnings. There were no shares earned and no charges
against earnings in 1992 related to these contingent warrants.
 
NOTE 5:  OTHER EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
 
QUALIFIED INVESTMENT PLAN
 
     In 1986, the Company adopted a Section 401(k) Plan (the Plan), which
provides participating employees with an opportunity to accumulate funds for
retirement and hardship. Under the terms of the Plan, eligible participants may
contribute up to 10% of their eligible earnings to the Plan Trust.
 
PROFIT SHARING PLAN
 
     Under the 1986 Profit Sharing Plan (the Plan), which commenced in the
fiscal quarter ended September 1986, a portion of the Company's quarterly
operating profit (as defined) can be allocated to the Company's "Employee
Benefit Fund." The nominal contribution is 6% of defined operating profit,
divided by the number of qualified employees, which gives each qualified
employee an equal share. In October 1990, the Company amended the Plan to allow
for the grant of stock options under the 1985 Stock Option Plan in lieu of a
cash profit sharing payment, at the option of the employee. In 1993 and 1991,
$1,599,000 and $3,509,000, respectively, were charged against operations in
connection with this Plan, representing 13.0% and 7.3% of operating profit
(before profit sharing expense), respectively. There was no profit sharing
expense for fiscal 1992. The Company has no management or executive bonus plans.
 
NOTE 6:  INCOME TAXES
 
     The components of the provision for income taxes are summarized in Table 2.
Income (loss) before taxes is principally attributed to domestic operations.
 
     The tax provision differs from the amounts obtained by applying the
statutory U.S. federal income tax rate to income before taxes as shown in Table
3.

NOTE 7:  COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
OPERATING LEASE COMMITMENTS
 
     The Company leases most of its manufacturing and office facilities under
noncancelable operating lease agreements that expire at various dates through
2001. These leases require the Company to pay taxes, insurance, and maintenance
expenses, and provide for renewal options at the then fair market rental value
of the property. The aggregate annual rental commitments under noncancelable
operating leases as of January 3, 1994, are:

     Rental expense was approximately $4,036,000 in 1993, $4,782,000 in 1992,
and $4,587,000 in 1991.
 
LITIGATION AND ASSERTED CLAIMS
 
     In the normal course of business, the Company receives and makes inquiries
with regard to possible patent infringement. Where deemed advisable, the Company
may seek or extend licenses or negotiate settlements.
 
     Texas Instruments (TI) has charged Cypress and four other semiconductor
companies with infringement of two patents, primarily covering the plastic
encapsulation process used to package semiconductor devices. This action was
filed before the International Trade Commission (ITC) in Washington, D.C., and
in the U.S. District Court in Dallas, Texas. The ITC has ruled that the plastic
packaging process known as "bottom gating" does infringe, but that "top gating,"
used now by Cypress, does not infringe TI's patent. Cypress contends that the
patents are invalid. In March of 1993, the U.S. District Court of Appeals for
the Federal Circuit affirmed the ITC's ruling. No trial date has been set in the
U.S. District Court regarding this matter.
 
     In January and February 1992, the Company and certain of its officers were
named defendants in three purported class-action suits filed in the United
States District Court for the Northern District of California. The suits filed
are for alleged violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and certain
provisions of state law regarding disclosure of short-term business prospects.
In 1992, the three securities class-action complaints were consolidated by the
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The trial date has
been scheduled for June 5, 1995.
 
     Cypress will vigorously defend itself in these matters. While the outcome
of such litigation and claims cannot be accurately predicted, management
believes that recorded reserves are adequate and these actions should not have a
material adverse impact on its financial position. However, should the outcome
of any of the actions be unfavorable, Cypress may be required to pay damages and
other expenses, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's
financial position, although management believes the possibility of such effect
is remote.
 
NOTE 8:  RELATED PARTY
 
     During 1990, the Company made a cost-basis investment of $1 million in
Vitesse Semiconductor Series E Preferred Stock (which has been converted to
common stock since Vitesse's public offering) and guaranteed an equipment lease
line of credit for Vitesse, of $3.5 million, maturing on August 31, 1997. The
outstanding principal balance related to the lease line at January 3, 1994, is
$1.6 million. In exchange for

NOTE 8:  RELATED PARTY -- CONTINUED
guaranteeing the leases, the Company received a warrant, exercisable at $9.00
per share, for up to 35,000 shares of Vitesse common stock. The warrant for
35,000 shares was exercised in December 1991 and the shares subsequently sold in
1992. As of January 3, 1994, the Company's cost-basis investment is $1,000,000.
The Company's chairman, its president and a director, effective October 1993,
are members of the Vitesse Board of Directors.
 
     During 1992, the Company made a cost-basis investment of $2 million in
QuickLogic Series D preferred stock. An additional $195,000 was invested in
1993. Under certain circumstances, the Company may be required to make
additional investments in QuickLogic. The Company's chairman is a member of the
Board of Directors of QuickLogic.
 
     During 1993 and 1992, the Company paid approximately $291,000 and $242,000,
respectively, to a member of the Board of Directors for consulting services. The
Company also guaranteed a loan from a bank to the Company's president and chief
executive officer which aggregated $810,000 at January 3, 1994.

                      REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS
 
To the Stockholders and Board of Directors of Cypress Semiconductor Corporation:
 
In our opinion, the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and the related
consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity and cash flows
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Cypress
Semiconductor Corporation and its subsidiaries at January 3, 1994 and December
28, 1992, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of
the three years in the period ended January 3, 1994, in conformity with
generally accepted accounting principles. These financial statements are the
responsibility of the Company's management; our responsibility is to express an
opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our
audits of these statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards which require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable
assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material
misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting
the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the
accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and
evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.
We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed
above.

 (c)  You shall receive an annualized fixed retainer for your services of
      $242,000, payable on the first day of each month.  This retainer shall be
      increased on April 1st of each year by an amount equal to the average
      percentage salary increase as approved by the Board of Directors for all
      Cypress employees.

 (d)  You shall be reimbursed for your out-of-pocket business expenses for
      travel, lodging, phone and administrative support upon receipt of

      on May 10, 1993 to compensate you for successfully negotiating the sale
      of Ross Technology to Fujitsu Limited.

 (f)  You shall be granted a new stock option for 120,000 shares.  The exercise
      price shall be $11.625 per share, which is the fair market value of the

    independent contractor, and shall be subject to the Company's direction
    only as to specific areas with respect to which the Company desires your
    services and advice.

Please indicate your acceptance of this agreement by signing a copy and

in full force in effect, subject to the provisions of such Options and this
Plan).

 4.   Stock Subject to the Plan.   Subject to Section 15 of the Plan, the total
number of Shares reserved and available for issuance under the Plan is
3,455,791 Shares (including 455,791 Shares previously authorized but unissued

available for issuance pursuant to Incentive Stock Options shall not include
the foregoing annual increase, which shall be used solely for Nonstatutory
Stock Options.

 Subject to Section 15 of the Plan, if any Shares that have been optioned under
an Option (whether granted under this Plan or the Terminated Plans) cease to be
subject to such Option (other than through exercise of the Option), or if any
Option granted hereunder or thereunder is forfeited, or any Option otherwise
terminates prior to the issuance of Common Stock to the participant, the Shares
that were subject to such Option shall again be available for distribution in
connection with future Options under the Plan.   Shares that have actually been
issued under the Plan upon exercise of an Option shall not in any event be
returned to the Plan and shall not become available for future distribution
under the Plan.

 5.   Administration of the Plan.

   (a) Procedure.

           (i)  Multiple Administrative Bodies.  If permitted by Rule 16b-3, the
Plan may be administered by different bodies with respect to (A) Directors and
Officers, and (B) Employees and Consultants who are neither Directors nor
Officers.

          (ii)  Administration With Respect to Discretionary Option Grants to
Individuals Subject to Section 16(b).  With respect to discretionary Option
grants made to Employees and Consultants who are also Officers or Directors
subject to Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, the Plan shall be administered by
(A) the Board, if the Board may administer the Plan in compliance with the
rules governing a plan intended to qualify as a discretionary plan under Rule
16b-3, or (B) a committee designated by the Board to administer the Plan, which
committee shall be constituted to comply with the rules governing a plan
intended to qualify as a discretionary plan under Rule 16b-3.  Once appointed,
such Committee shall continue to serve in its designated capacity until
otherwise directed by the Board.  From time to time the Board may increase the
size of the Committee and appoint additional members, remove members (with or
without cause) and substitute new members, fill vacancies (however caused), and
remove all members of the Committee and thereafter directly administer the
Plan, all to the extent permitted by the rules governing a plan intended to
qualify as a discretionary plan under Rule 16b-3.

03/08/94                                                               -5-

<PAGE>   6
       (iii)  Administration With Respect to Discretionary Option Grants to
Other Persons.  With respect to discretionary Option grants made to Employees or
Consultants who are neither Directors nor Officers of the Company, the Plan
shall be administered by (A) the Board or (B) a committee designated by the
Board, which committee shall be constituted to satisfy Applicable Laws.  Once
appointed, such Committee shall serve in its designated capacity until otherwise
directed by the Board.  The Board may increase the size of the Committee and
appoint additional members, remove members (with or without cause) and
substitute new members, fill vacancies (however caused), and remove all members
of the Committee and thereafter directly administer the Plan, all to the extent
permitted by Applicable Laws.

       (iv)  Administration With Respect to Automatic Grants to Outside
Directors. Automatic Grants to Outside Directors shall be pursuant to a
non-discretionary formula as set forth in Section 11 hereof and therefore shall
not be subject to any discretionary administration.

   (b) Powers of the Administrator.  Subject to the provisions of the Plan, and
in the case of a Committee, subject to the specific duties delegated by the
Board to such Committee, the Administrator shall have the authority, in its
discretion:

       (i)  to determine the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock, in 
accordance with Section 3(p) of the Plan;

       (ii) to select the Consultants and Employees to whom Options may be 
granted hereunder;

       (iii)  to determine whether and to what extent Options are granted
hereunder;

       (iv) to determine the number of shares of Common Stock to be covered
by each Option granted hereunder;

       (v)  to approve forms of agreement for use under the Plan;

       (vi) to determine the terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the
terms of the Plan, of any Option granted hereunder.  Such terms and conditions
include, but are not limited to, the exercise price, the time or times when
Options may be exercised (which may be based on performance criteria), any
vesting acceleration or waiver of forfeiture restrictions, and any restriction
or limitation regarding any Option or the shares of Common Stock relating
thereto, based in each case on such factors as the Administrator, in its sole
discretion, shall determine;

       (vii)  to reduce the exercise price of any Option to the then current
Fair Market Value if the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock covered by 
such Option shall have declined since the date the Option was granted;

03/08/94                                                               -6-

       (viii)  to construe and interpret the terms of the Plan and Options
granted pursuant to the Plan;

       (ix)  to prescribe, amend and rescind rules and regulations relating to
the Plan, including rules and regulations relating to sub-plans established for
the purpose of qualifying for preferred tax treatment under foreign tax laws;

       (x)  to modify or amend each Option (subject to Section 16(c) of 
the Plan);

       (xi)  to authorize any person to execute on behalf of the Company any
instrument required to effect the grant of an Option previously granted by the
Administrator;

       (xii)  to institute an Option Exchange Program;

       (xiii)  to determine the terms and restrictions applicable to 
Options; and

       (xiv)  to make all other determinations deemed necessary or advisable
for administering the Plan.

   (c) Effect of Administrator's Decision.  The Administrator's decisions,
determinations and interpretations shall be final and binding on all Optionees
and any other holders of Options.

 6.   Eligibility.

   (a)    Discretionary Stock Options.  Nonstatutory Stock Options may be
granted to Employees and Consultants.  Incentive Stock Options may be granted
only to Employees.  If otherwise eligible, an Employee or Consultant who has
been granted an Option may be granted additional Options.

   (b) Outside Director Stock Options.  Outside Directors shall be eligible to
receive only Nonstatutory Stock Options pursuant to Section 11 hereof.

 7.   Limitations.

   (a) Each Option shall be designated in the Notice of Grant or Option
Agreement as either an Incentive Stock Option or a Nonstatutory Stock Option.
However, notwithstanding such designations, to the extent that the aggregate
Fair Market Value:

    (i)  of Shares subject to an Optionee's incentive stock options granted
by the Company, any Parent or Subsidiary, which

03/08/94                                                               -7-

<PAGE>   8

    (ii)  become exercisable for the first time during any calendar year (under
all plans of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary)

exceeds $100,000, such excess Options shall be treated as Nonstatutory Stock
Options.  For purposes of this Section 7(a), incentive stock options shall be
taken into account in the order in which they were granted, and the Fair Market
Value of the Shares shall be determined as of the time of grant.

   (b) Neither the Plan nor any Option shall confer upon an Optionee any right
with respect to continuing the Optionee's employment or consulting relationship
or tenure as a director with the Company, nor shall they interfere in any way
with the Optionee's, the Company's, or the Company's stockholders', right to
terminate such employment or consulting relationship or tenure as a director
with the Company at any time, with or without cause.

   (c) The following limitations shall apply to grants of Options to Employees:

    (i)  No Employee shall be granted, in any fiscal year of the Company,
Options to purchase more than 500,000 Shares.

    (ii) The foregoing limitation shall be adjusted proportionately in
connection with any change in the Company's capitalization as described in
Section 14(a).

    (iii)  If an Option is canceled (other than in connection with a
transaction described in Section 14), the canceled Option will be counted
against the limit set forth in Section 7(c)(i).  For this purpose, if the
exercise price of an Option is reduced, the transaction will be treated as a
cancellation of the Option and the grant of a new Option.

 8.   Term of Plan.  The Plan shall become effective upon the date, in 1994, of
its approval by the stockholders of the Company.  It shall continue in effect
for a term of ten (10) years unless terminated earlier under Section 16 of the
Plan.

 9.   Term of Option.  The term of each Option shall be ten (10) years from the
date of grant or such shorter term as may be provided in the Notice of Grant or
Option Agreement.  In the case of an Incentive Stock Option granted to an
Optionee who, at the time the Incentive Stock Option is granted, owns stock
representing more than ten percent (10%) of the voting power of all classes of
stock of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary, the term of the Incentive
Stock Option shall be five (5) years from the date of grant or such shorter
term as may be provided in the Notice of Grant or Option Agreement.

 10.  Option Exercise Price and Consideration.

<PAGE>   9
   (a) Exercise Price.  The per share exercise price for the Shares to be
issued pursuant to exercise of an Option shall be determined by the
Administrator, subject to the following:

    (i)  In the case of an Incentive Stock Option

      (A) granted to an Employee who, at the time the Incentive Stock Option is
granted, owns stock representing more than ten percent (10%) of the voting
power of all classes of stock of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary, the
per Share exercise price shall be no less than 110% of the Fair Market Value
per Share on the date of grant.

      (B) granted to any Employee other than an Employee described in paragraph
(A) immediately above, the per Share exercise price shall be no less than one
hundred (100%) of the Fair Market Value per Share on the date of grant.

     (ii)   In the case of a Nonstatutory Stock Option, the per Share
exercise price shall be no less than eighty-five percent (85%) of Fair Market
Value per Share on the date of grant.

   (b) Waiting Period and Exercise Dates.  At the time an Option is granted,
the Administrator shall fix the period within which the Option may be exercised
and shall determine any conditions which must be satisfied before the Option
may be exercised.  In so doing, the Administrator may specify that an Option
may not be exercised until the completion of a service period.

   (c) Form of Consideration.  Except with respect to automatic stock option
grants to Outside Directors, the Administrator shall determine the acceptable
form of consideration for exercising an Option, including the method of
payment.  In the case of an Incentive Stock Option, the Administrator shall
determine the acceptable form of consideration at the time of grant.  Such form
of consideration shall be set forth in the Notice of Grant or Option Agreement
and may, as determined by the Administrator, consist entirely of:

      (i) cash;

      (ii) check;

      (iii)  promissory note;

      (iv) other Shares which (A) in the case of Shares acquired upon
exercise of an option, have been owned by the Optionee for more than six months
on the date of surrender, and (B) have a Fair Market Value on the date of
surrender equal to the aggregate exercise price of the Shares as to which said
Option shall be exercised;

03/08/94                                                               -9-

<PAGE>   10
    (v)  delivery of a properly executed exercise notice together with such
other documentation as the Administrator and the broker, if applicable, shall
require to effect an exercise of the Option and delivery to the Company of the
sale or loan proceeds required to pay the exercise price;

    (vi) any combination of the foregoing methods of payment; or

    (vii)  such other consideration and method of payment for the issuance
of Shares to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws.

 11.  Automatic Stock Option Grants to Outside Directors.

   (a) Procedure for Grants.  All grants of Options to Outside Directors
hereunder shall be automatic and non-discretionary and shall be made strictly
in accordance with the following provisions:

       (i)  No person shall have any discretion to select which Outside
   Directors shall be granted Options or to determine the number of Shares 
   to be covered by Options granted to Outside Directors.

       (ii) Each Outside Director shall be automatically granted an Option to
   purchase 40,000 Shares (the "First Option") upon the date on which such
   person first becomes a Director, whether through election by the
   stockholders of the Company or appointment by the Board of Directors to fill
   a vacancy.

       (iii)  After the First Option has been granted to an Outside Director,
   such Outside Director shall thereafter be automatically granted an Option to
   purchase 10,000 Shares (a "Subsequent Option") on a date one year after the
   date of grant of the First Option and on the same date each year thereafter.

       (iv) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections (ii) and (iii)
   hereof, in the event that an automatic grant hereunder would cause the
   number of Shares subject to outstanding Options plus the number of Shares
   previously purchased upon exercise of Options to exceed the number of Shares
   available for issuance under the Plan, then each such automatic grant shall
   be for that number of Shares determined by dividing the total number of
   Shares remaining available for grant by the number of Outside Directors on
   the automatic grant date.  Any further grants shall then be deferred until
   such time, if any, as additional Shares become available for grant under the
   Plan.

       (v)  The terms of an Option granted hereunder shall be as follows:

           (1) the term of the Option shall be ten (10) years.





DW2027.W42(5P3)
03/08/94                                                              -10-

<PAGE>   11
      (2) the Option shall be exercisable only while the Outside Director
    remains a Director of the Company, except as set forth in subsection (c)
    hereof.

      (3) the exercise price per Share shall be 100% of the fair market value
    per Share on the date of grant of the Option.

      (4) the Option shall become exercisable as follows:

           (A)  If it is a First Option, it shall become exercisable
cumulatively in installments of 10,000 Shares per year beginning on the date one
year after such Director's election to the Board of Directors.

           (B)  If it is a Subsequent Option, it shall become fully exercisable
four years after the date on which it was granted.

   (b)   Consideration for Exercising Outside Director Stock Options.   The
consideration to be paid for the Shares to be issued upon exercise of an
automatic Outside Director Option shall consist entirely of cash, check, other
Shares of Common Stock which (i) either have been owned by the Optionee for
more than six (6) months or were not acquired, directly or indirectly from the
Company and (ii) have a fair market value on the date of surrender equal to the
aggregate exercise price of the Shares as to which said Option shall be
exercised, or any combination of such methods of payment.

   (c) Post-Directorship Exercisability.

    (i)  Termination of Status as a Director.   If an Outside Director ceases
to serve as a Director, he may, but only within ninety days (90) after the date
he ceases to be a Director of the Company, exercise his Option to the extent
that he was entitled to exercise it at the date of such termination.  To the
extent that he was not entitled to exercise an Option at the date of such
termination, or if he does not exercise such Option (which he was entitled to
exercise) within the time specified herein, the Option shall terminate.

    (ii)  Disability of Director.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Section
11(c)(i) above, in the event a Director is unable to continue his service as a
Director with the Company as a result of his Disability, he may, but only
within six (6) months from the date of termination, exercise his Option to the
extent he was entitled to exercise it at the date of such termination.  To the
extent that he was not entitled to exercise the Option at the date of
termination, or if he does not exercise such Option (which he was entitled to
exercise) within the time specified herein, the Option shall terminate.

<PAGE>   12
    (iii)  Death of Director.  In the event of the death of an Optionee:

          (A) during the term of the Option who is at the time of his death a
Director of the Company and who shall have been in Continuous Status as a
Director since the date of grant of the Option, the Option may be exercised, at
any time within six (6) months following the date of death, by the Optionee's
estate or by a person who acquired the right to exercise the Option by bequest
or inheritance, but only to the extent of the right to exercise that would have
accrued had the Optionee continued living and remained in Continuous Status a
Director for twelve (12) months after the date of death; or

          (B) within thirty (30) days after the termination of Continuous
Status as a Director, the Option may be exercised, at any time within six (6)
months following the date of death, by the Optionee's estate or by a person who
acquired the right to exercise the Option by bequest or inheritance, but only
to the extent of the right to exercise that had accrued at the date of
termination.

 12.  Exercise of Option.

   (a) Procedure for Exercise; Rights as a Stockholder.  Any Option granted
hereunder shall be exercisable according to the terms of the Plan and at such
times and under such conditions as set forth in the Option Agreement.

    An Option may not be exercised for a fraction of a Share.

    An Option shall be deemed exercised when the Company receives: (i) written
notice of exercise (in accordance with the Option Agreement) from the person
entitled to exercise the Option, and (ii) full payment for the Shares with
respect to which the Option is exercised.  Full payment may consist of any
consideration and method of payment authorized by the Administrator and
permitted by the Option Agreement and the Plan.  Shares issued upon exercise of
an Option shall be issued in the name of the Optionee or, if requested by the
Optionee, in the name of the Optionee and his or her spouse.  Until the stock
certificate evidencing such Shares is issued (as evidenced by the appropriate
entry on the books of the Company or of a duly authorized transfer agent of the
Company), no right to vote or receive dividends or any other rights as a
stockholder shall exist with respect to the Optioned Stock, notwithstanding the
exercise of the Option.  The Company shall issue (or cause to be issued) such
stock certificate promptly after the Option is exercised.  No adjustment will
be made for a dividend or other right for which the record date is prior to the
date the stock certificate is issued, except as provided in Section 14 of the
Plan.

    Exercising an Option in any manner shall decrease the number of Shares
thereafter available, both for purposes of the Plan and for sale under the
Option, by the number of Shares as to which the Option is exercised.

<PAGE>   13
   (b) Termination of Employment or Consulting Relationship.  Upon termination
of an Optionee's Continuous Status as an Employee or Consultant, other than
upon the Optionee's death or Disability, the Optionee may exercise the Option,
but only within such period of time as is specified in the Notice of Grant or
Option Agreement, and only to the extent that the Optionee was entitled to
exercise it at the date of termination (but in no event later than the
expiration of the term of such Option as set forth in the Notice of Grant or
Option Agreement).  In the absence of a specified time in the Notice of Grant
or Option Agreement, the Option shall remain exercisable for three months
following the Optionee's termination of Continuous Status as an Employee or
Consultant.  In the case of an Incentive Stock Option, such period of time
shall not exceed three (3) months from the date of termination; in the case of
a Nonstatutory Stock Option, such period of time shall not exceed twenty-four
(24) months from the date of termination.  If, at the date of termination, the
Optionee is not entitled to exercise the entire Option, the Shares covered by
the unexercisable portion of the Option shall revert to the Plan.  If, after
termination, the Optionee does not exercise the Option within the time
specified by the Administrator, the Option shall terminate, and the Shares
covered by such Option shall revert to the Plan.

   (c) Disability of Optionee.  In the event that an Optionee's Continuous
Status as an Employee or Consultant terminates as a result of the Optionee's
Disability, the Optionee may exercise his or her Option at any time within (i)
for discretionary stock options, six (6) months or such other period of time
not exceeding twelve (12) months, as is specified in the Notice of Grant or
Option Agreement, or (ii) for automatic stock option grants to Outside
Directors, six (6) months from the date of such termination.  Any such Options
may only be exercised to the extent that the Optionee was entitled to exercise
it at the date of such termination (but in no event later than the expiration
of the term of such Option as set forth in the Notice of Grant or Option
Agreement).  If, at the date of termination, the Optionee is not entitled to
exercise his or her entire Option, the Shares covered by the unexercisable
portion of the Option shall revert to the Plan.  If, after termination, the
Optionee does not exercise his or her Option within the time specified herein,
the Option shall terminate, and the Shares covered by such Option shall revert
to the Plan.

   (d) Death of Optionee.  In the event of the death of an Optionee:

        (i)  during the term of the Option who is at the time of his death an
of the Company and who shall have been in Continuous Status as an Employee or
Consultant since the date of grant of the Option, the Option may be exercised,
at any time within six (6) months following the date of death, by the
Optionee's estate or by a person who acquired the right to exercise the Option
by bequest or inheritance, but only to the extent of the right to exercise that
would have accrued had the Optionee continued living and remained in Continuous
Status an Employee or Consultant for twelve (12) months after the date of
death; or

        (ii) within thirty (30) days after the termination of Continuous
Status as an Employee or Consultant, the Option may be exercised, at any time
within six (6) months





DW2027.W42(5P3)
03/08/94                                                              -13-

<PAGE>   14
following the date of death, by the Optionee's estate or by a person who
acquired the right to exercise the Option by bequest or inheritance, but only
to the extent of the right to exercise that had accrued at the date of
termination.

   (e) Rule 16b-3.  Options granted to individuals subject to Section 16 of the
Exchange Act ("Insiders") must comply with the applicable provisions of Rule
16b-3 and shall contain such additional conditions or restrictions as may be
required thereunder to qualify for the maximum exemption from Section 16 of the
Exchange Act with respect to Plan transactions.

 13.  Non-Transferability of Options.  An Option may not be sold, pledged,
assigned, hypothecated, transferred, or disposed of in any manner other than by
will or by the laws of descent or distribution and may be exercised, during the
lifetime of the Optionee, only by the Optionee.

  14.  Adjustments Upon Changes in Capitalization, Dissolution, Merger, Asset
Sale or Change of Control.

   (a) Changes in Capitalization.  Subject to any required action by the
stockholders of the Company, the number of shares of Common Stock covered by
each outstanding Option, and the number of shares of Common Stock which have
been authorized for issuance under the Plan but as to which no Options have yet
been granted or which have been returned to the Plan upon cancellation or
expiration of an Option, as well as the price per share of Common Stock covered
by each such outstanding Option, shall be proportionately adjusted for any
increase or decrease in the number of issued shares of Common Stock resulting
from a stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, combination or
reclassification of the Common Stock, or any other increase or decrease in the
number of issued shares of Common Stock effected without receipt of
consideration by the Company; provided, however, that conversion of any
convertible securities of the Company shall not be deemed to have been
"effected without receipt of consideration."  Such adjustment shall be made by
the Board, whose determination in that respect shall be final, binding and
conclusive.  Except as expressly provided herein, no issuance by the Company of
shares of stock of any class, or securities convertible into shares of stock of
any class, shall affect, and no adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with
respect to, the number or price of shares of Common Stock subject to an Option.

   (b) Dissolution or Liquidation.  In the event of the proposed dissolution or
liquidation of the Company, with respect to discretionary Options granted under
the Plan (but not with respect to Options granted to Outside Directors) the
Board may, in the exercise of its sole discretion in such instances, declare
that any such Option shall terminate as of a date fixed by the Board and give
each Optionee the right to exercise his or her Option as to all or any part of
the Optioned Stock, including Shares as to which the Option would not otherwise
be exercisable.

   (c) Merger or Asset Sale.  In the event of a merger of the Company with or
into another corporation, or the sale of substantially all of the assets of the
Company, each





DW2027.W42(5P3)
03/08/94                                                              -14-

<PAGE>   15
outstanding Option shall be assumed or an equivalent option shall be
substituted by the successor corporation or a Parent or Subsidiary of the
successor corporation.  With respect to a discretionary Option granted under
the Plan (but not with respect to Options granted to Outside Directors), the
Administrator may, in the exercise of its sole discretion and in lieu of such
assumption or substitution, provide for the Optionee to have the right to
exercise such Option as to all of the Optioned Stock, including as to Shares
which would not otherwise be exercisable.  With respect to Options granted to
Outside Directors on or after the Effective Date of the Plan, in the event that
the successor corporation does not agree to assume such Options or to
substitute equivalent options, each such outstanding Option shall become fully
vested and exercisable, including as to Shares as to which it would not
otherwise be exercisable, unless the Board, in its discretion, determines
otherwise.  With respect to Options granted to Outside Directors prior to the
Effective Date of the Plan, in the event that the successor corporation does
not agree to assume such Options or to substitute equivalent options, such
Options shall terminate.

 If the Administrator makes a discretionary Option fully exercisable in lieu of
assumption or substitution in the event of a merger or sale of assets, the
Administrator shall notify the Optionee that the Option shall be fully
exercisable for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of such notice, and
the Option will terminate upon the expiration of such period.

 For the purposes of this subsection, the Option shall be considered assumed
if, following the merger or sale of assets, the option confers the right to
purchase, for each Share of Optioned Stock subject to the Option immediately
prior to the merger or sale of assets, the consideration (whether stock, cash,
or other securities or property) received in the merger or sale of assets by
holders of Common Stock for each Share held on the effective date of the
transaction (and if holders were offered a choice of consideration, the type of
consideration chosen by the holders of a majority of the outstanding Shares);
provided, however, that if such consideration received in the merger or sale of
assets was not solely common stock of the successor corporation or its Parent,
the Administrator may, with the consent of the successor corporation, provide
for the consideration to be received upon the exercise of the Option, for each
Share of Optioned Stock subject to the Option, to be solely common stock of the
successor corporation or its Parent equal in fair market value to the per share
consideration received by holders of Common Stock in the merger or sale of
assets.

 15.  Option Date of Grant.  The date of grant of an Option shall be, for all
purposes, the date on which the Administrator makes the determination granting
such Option, or such other later date as is determined by the Administrator.
Notice of the determination shall be provided to each Optionee within a
reasonable time after the date of such grant.

 16.  Amendment and Termination of the Plan.

   (a) Amendment and Termination.  The Board may at any time amend, alter,
suspend or terminate the Plan.





DW2027.W42(5P3)
03/08/94                                                              -15-

<PAGE>   16
   (b) Stockholder Approval.  The Company shall obtain stockholder approval of
any Plan amendment to the extent necessary and desirable to comply with Rule
16b-3 or with Sections 422 and 424 of the Code (or any successor rules or
statutes or other applicable laws, rules or regulations, including the
requirements of any exchange or quotation system on which the Common Stock is
listed or quoted).  Such stockholder approval, if required, shall be obtained
in such a manner and to such a degree as is required by the applicable law,
rule or regulation.

   (c) Effect of Amendment or Termination.  No amendment, alteration,
suspension or termination of the Plan shall impair the rights of any Optionee,
unless mutually agreed otherwise between the Optionee and the Administrator,
which agreement must be in writing and signed by the Optionee and the Company.

 17.  Conditions Upon Issuance of Shares.

   (a) Legal Compliance.  Shares shall not be issued pursuant to the exercise
of an Option unless the exercise of such Option and the issuance and delivery
of such Shares shall comply with all relevant provisions of law, including,
without limitation, the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Exchange Act,
the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, Applicable Laws, and the
requirements of any stock exchange or quotation system upon which the Shares
may then be listed or quoted, and shall be further subject to the approval of
counsel for the Company with respect to such compliance.

   (b) Investment Representations.  As a condition to the exercise of an
Option, the Company may require the person exercising such Option to represent
and warrant at the time of any such exercise that the Shares are being
purchased only for investment and without any present intention to sell or
distribute such Shares if, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, such a
representation is required.

 18.  Liability of Company.

   (a) Inability to Obtain Authority.  The inability of the Company to obtain
authority from any regulatory body having jurisdiction, which authority is
deemed by the Company's counsel to be necessary to the lawful issuance and sale
of any Shares hereunder, shall relieve the Company of any liability in respect
of the failure to issue or sell such Shares as to which such requisite
authority shall not have been obtained.

   (b) Option Grants Exceeding Allotted Shares.  If the Optioned Stock covered
by an Option exceeds, as of the date of grant, the number of Shares which may
be issued under the Plan without additional stockholder approval, such Option
shall be void with respect to such excess Optioned Stock, unless stockholder
approval of an amendment sufficiently increasing the number of Shares subject
to the Plan is timely obtained in accordance with Section 16(b) of the Plan.

 19.  Reservation of Shares.  The Company, during the term of this Plan, will
at all times reserve and keep available such number of Shares as shall be
sufficient to satisfy the requirements of the Plan.
