On April 9, 2015, Infinera Corporation (NASDAQ: INFN) – a provider of Intelligent Transport Networks for network operators, enabling reliable, easy to operate, high-capacity optical networks – (“Infinera”) announced a recommended public offer to the shareholders of Transmode AB (“Transmode”) to tender all their shares in Transmode to Infinera (the “Offer”).

With respect to the Offer, a Swedish offer document (the “Offer Document”) and a prospectus and Registration Statement on Form S-4 are being prepared for registration with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), respectively. The preparation of the pro forma financial statements for the purposes of complying with both Swedish and US rules and regulations, including converting Transmode’s financial statements from IFRS to U.S. GAAP, and the associated auditing related thereto continues to progress but is not yet completed. As a result, the Offer Document is now expected to be published during the first two weeks of July 2015. The acceptance period will commence promptly following the publication of the Offer Document and is expected to expire in early-August 2015, with expected settlement by mid-August 2015. Infinera reserves the right to extend the acceptance period as well as to postpone the date of settlement.
