Sycamore Networks, Inc. Announces Intent To Proceed With Dissolution

Sycamore Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCMR) (the “Company”) announced today that its Board of Directors has determined that, for the reasons stated in the Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with the Special Meeting of Stockholders of the Company held on January 29, 2013 (the “Special Meeting”), and after reviewing strategic alternatives for all of the Company’s assets and available options for providing value to the Company’s stockholders, it is advisable and in the best interest of the stockholders for the Company to proceed with its previously announced liquidation and dissolution in accordance with the plan of complete liquidation and dissolution that the stockholders approved at the Special Meeting, effective as of the close of business on March 7, 2013.

The Company intends to file a certificate of dissolution with the Delaware Secretary of State on March 7, 2013 (the “Certificate of Dissolution”). In connection with the filing of the Certificate of Dissolution, the Company will close its stock transfer books and discontinue recording transfers of its common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), as of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on March 7, 2013. The Board has fixed March 7, 2013 as the final date for the recording of stock transfers and as the record date for determining Company stockholders entitled to receive any future distributions of available assets. Only those stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 7, 2013 will be entitled to such future distributions. Subject to uncertainties inherent in the winding up of its business, the Company expects to make one or more liquidating distributions as promptly as practicable after paying, or providing for the payment of, any outstanding claims in accordance with Delaware law. No assurances can be made as to the ultimate amounts to be distributed or the timing of any distributions.
