Airvana Stockholders Approve Merger; Transaction Completed

Airvana, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRV), a leading provider of mobile broadband network infrastructure products, today announced that, at Airvana’s special meeting of stockholders held this morning, Airvana’s stockholders overwhelmingly approved the proposed merger with 72 Mobile Acquisition Corp. Approximately 70% of Airvana’s outstanding shares present or represented by proxy at the special meeting voted in favor of the merger. Following the special meeting, the transaction was completed.

Airvana announced on December 18, 2009 a definitive agreement with respect to the transaction, which is valued at approximately $540 million.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, Airvana’s pre-closing stockholders are entitled to receive $7.65 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, for each share of common stock that they owned immediately prior to the effective time of the merger. Letters of transmittal allowing Airvana’s pre-closing stockholders of record to deliver their shares to the paying agent in exchange for payment of the merger consideration will be distributed shortly. Pre-closing stockholders who held shares through a bank or broker will not have to take any action to have their shares converted into cash, as such conversions will be processed with the paying agent by the bank or broker.

With the closing of the transaction, Airvana stock will no longer trade on the NASDAQ following the market close today and will be delisted.
