Some of the statements in this communication are forward-looking statements (or forward-looking information) within the meaning of applicable U.S. and Canadian securities laws. These include statements using the words believe, target, outlook, may, will, should, could, estimate, continue, expect, intend, plan, predict, potential, project and anticipate, and similar statements which do not describe the present or provide information about the past. There is no guarantee that the expected events or expected results will actually occur. Such statements reflect the current views of management of Mitel and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. These statements are based on many assumptions and factors, including general economic and market conditions, industry conditions, operational and other factors. Any changes in these assumptions or other factors could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. All forward-looking statements attributable to Mitel, or persons acting on its behalf, and are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements set forth in this paragraph. Undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. In addition, material risks that could cause actual results to differ from forward-looking statements include: the inherent uncertainty associated with financial or other projections; the integration of Mavenir and the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits from the acquisition of Mavenir; the ability to obtain required regulatory approvals for the exchange offer and merger, the timing of obtaining such approvals and the risk that such approvals may result in the imposition of conditions that could adversely affect the expected benefits of the acquisition of Mavenir; the risk that the conditions to the exchange offer or merger are not satisfied on a timely basis or at all and the failure of the exchange offer or merger to close for any other reason; risks relating to the value of the Mitel common shares to be issued in connection with the exchange offer and merger; the anticipated size of the markets and continued demand for Mitel and Mavenir products and the impact of competitive products and pricing that could result from the announcement of the acquisition of Mavenir; access to available financing on a timely basis and on reasonable terms, including the refinancing of Mitel’s debt to fund the cash portion of the consideration in connection with the exchange offer and merger; Mitel’s ability to achieve or sustain profitability in the future since its acquisition of Aastra; fluctuations in quarterly and annual revenues and operating results; fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; current and ongoing global economic instability, political unrest and related sanctions; intense competition; reliance on channel partners for a significant component of sales; dependence upon a small number of outside contract manufacturers to manufacture products; and, Mitel’s ability to implement and achieve its business strategies successfully. Additional risks are described under the heading “Risk Factors” in Mitel’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, filed with the SEC on February 26, 2015, and in Mavenir’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 to be filed with the SEC. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Except as required by law, Mitel does not have any intention or obligation to update or to publicly announce the results of any revisions to any of the forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, future events or developments, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting the forward-looking statements.
