Concurrently with the filing of this Transaction Statement, the Company is filing with the SEC an amended preliminary proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) pursuant to Regulation 14A of the Exchange Act relating to a special meeting of the stockholders of the Company at which the holders of Common Stock will be asked to consider and vote on a proposal to adopt the Merger Agreement.

A copy of the Proxy Statement is attached hereto as Exhibit (a)(1). A copy of the Merger Agreement is attached as Annex A to the Proxy Statement and is incorporated herein by reference.

The board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) formed a special committee comprised solely of four independent and disinterested directors of the Company (the “Special Committee”) to evaluate and, if applicable, negotiate the terms of the Merger and alternatives to the Merger. The Special Committee unanimously: (i) determined that the terms of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger, are advisable and fair to, and in the best interests of, the Company and its stockholders (other than the Participants and their respective affiliates), (ii) directed that the Merger Agreement be submitted to the Board for its approval and recommendation that the Company’s stockholders adopt the Merger Agreement, and (iii) recommended that the Board (a) approve and declare advisable the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger, (b) declare that the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger, are fair to, and in the best interests of, the Company and its stockholders (other than the Participants and their respective affiliates), (c) authorize and approve the Company’s entry into the Merger Agreement and consummation of the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger, (d) submit the adoption of the Merger Agreement for consideration by the Company’s stockholders at a meeting of the stockholders of the Company, and (e) recommend that the Company’s stockholders vote in favor of the adoption of the Merger Agreement.
