     This Amendment No. 4 amends and supplements the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 18, 2007, as amended on January 7, 2008, January 9, 2008 and January 15, 2008 (as previously filed with the SEC, collectively, the “Schedule 14D-9”), by Genesis Microchip Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Genesis” or the “Company”), relating to the tender offer made by Sophia Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Offeror”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics N.V., a limited liability company organized under the laws of the Netherlands, with its corporate seat in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (“Parent”), as set forth in a Tender Offer Statement filed by Offeror and Parent on Schedule TO, dated December 18, 2007, as amended on January 9, 2008 and January 17, 2008 (as previously filed with the SEC, the “Schedule TO”), to pay $8.65 per share, net to the holder thereof in cash, without interest, less any required withholding taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated December 18, 2007, and in the related Letter of Transmittal. Any capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to such term in the Schedule 14D-9.
     All information in the Schedule 14D-9 is incorporated in this Amendment No. 4, except that such information is hereby amended to the extent specifically provided herein.
Item 8.    Additional Information.
     Item 8 is hereby amended and supplemented by including the following:
     The Offer. The initial offering period of the Offer expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on January 16, 2008. According to Mellon Investor Services LLC, the depositary for the Offer, approximately 34.6 million Shares (including approximately 2.3 million Shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery) were validly tendered and not withdrawn as of the expiration of the initial offering period of the Offer, representing approximately 91.0% of the outstanding Shares, assuming all Shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery are received by Offeror. Offeror has accepted for payment all tendered Shares.
     On January 17, 2008, Parent and Offeror announced a subsequent offering period commencing on January 17, 2008 and expiring on January 23, 2008 at 5:00 p.m., New York City time. During the subsequent offering period, Offeror will accept for payment and promptly pay for Shares as they are tendered. Stockholders who tender Shares during such period will be paid the same $8.65 per Share, net to the seller in cash, without interest, and less any applicable withholding taxes, as was paid during the initial offering period. Shares tendered during the subsequent offering period may not be withdrawn.
     Offeror may extend the subsequent offering period. If the subsequent offering period is extended, Offeror will notify Mellon Investor Services LLC and issue a press release prior to 9:00 a.m. New York City time on the first business day following the date the subsequent offering period was scheduled to expire.
     Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, Offeror will be merged with and into the Company as soon as practicable after the expiration of the subsequent offering period (as it may be extended). In connection with the Merger, each outstanding Share not tendered in the Offer (other than Shares held by the Company, Parent, Offeror and their respective direct and indirect subsidiaries and Shares held by stockholders who properly perfect appraisal rights under Delaware law) will be converted into the right to receive $8.65 per share in cash, without interest. Following the consummation of the Merger, the Company will continue as the surviving corporation and be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.
