Additional Information and Where to Find It

The Offer described herein has not yet commenced. This communication and the information incorporated herein by reference is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. Any offer will only be made through a tender offer statement on Schedule TO, an offer to purchase, form of letter of transmittal and other documents relating to the tender offer (collectively, the “Tender Offer Materials”), each to be filed with the SEC by Parent. In addition, the Company will file with the SEC a solicitation/recommendation statement on Schedule 14D-9 with respect to the Offer. Parent and the Company expect to mail the Tender Offer Materials, as well as the Schedule 14D-9, to the Company’s stockholders. Any solicitation of offers to buy shares of the Company’s common stock will only be made pursuant to the Tender Offer Materials.

THE COMPANY’S STOCKHOLDERS AND OTHER INVESTORS ARE URGED TO READ THE TENDER OFFER MATERIALS AND THE SCHEDULE 14D-9, INCLUDING ALL AMENDMENTS TO THOSE MATERIALS. SUCH DOCUMENTS WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION, WHICH SHOULD BE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE ANY DECISION IS MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE OFFER.

Forward-Looking Statements

This communication may contain forward-looking statements, including statements with respect to the proposed Offer and merger, the treatment of equity awards in connection therewith, and the payment of certain bonus amounts in connection therewith. Forward-looking statements may be typically identified by such words as “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “likely,” “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “intend,” and other similar expressions among others. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any or all of such forward-looking statements may prove to be incorrect. Consequently, no forward-looking statements may be guaranteed and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by such forward looking statements will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, the Company or its businesses or operations.


Factors which could cause actual results to differ from those projected or contemplated in any such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following factors: (1) the risk that the conditions to the closing of the transaction are not satisfied, including the risk that Parent may not receive sufficient number of shares tendered from the Company’s stockholders to complete the Offer; (2) litigation relating to the transaction; (3) uncertainties as to the timing of the consummation of the transaction and the ability of each of Parent and the Company to consummate the transaction; (4) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts the current plans and operations of Parent or the Company; (5) the ability of Parent or the Company to retain and hire key personnel; (6) competitive responses to the proposed transaction; (7) unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the transaction; (8) potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the transaction; (9) Parent’s ability to achieve the synergies and value expected from the transaction, as well as delays, challenges and expenses associated with integrating the Company with Parent’s existing businesses; and (10) legislative, regulatory and economic developments. The foregoing review of important factors that could cause actual events to differ from expectations should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with statements that are included herein and elsewhere, including the risk factors included in the Company’s most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and more recent reports filed with the SEC. The Company cannot give assurance that the conditions to the transaction will be satisfied. Company does not undertake any intent or obligation to publicly update or revise any of these forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
