Other Events

As previously reported, on September 26, 2020, MobileIron, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or “MobileIron”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Ivanti, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and Oahu Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub” and, together with Parent, the “Buyer Parties”). The Merger Agreement provides that, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.

The Merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain closing conditions including, among other things, the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Waiting Period”). The HSR Waiting Period expired on November 2, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

Subject to obtaining MobileIron stockholder approval and the satisfaction of other closing conditions to the Merger, the Company currently expects to complete the Merger later in the current quarter or early in the first quarter of 2021.

How to Find Further Information

This communication does not constitute a solicitation of any vote or approval in connection with the proposed acquisition of MobileIron, Inc. (“MobileIron”) by Ivanti, Inc. (the “Merger”). In connection with the proposed Merger, MobileIron has filed a proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  Beginning on October 26, 2020, MobileIron mailed the proxy statement to its stockholders. BEFORE MAKING ANY VOTING DECISION, WE URGE STOCKHOLDERS TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT (INCLUDING ALL AMENDMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTS THERETO) AND OTHER DOCUMENTS FILED WITH THE SEC CAREFULLY AND IN THEIR ENTIRETY, BECAUSE THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT MOBILEIRON AND THE PROPOSED MERGER.
