Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking StatementsThis document contains certain forward-looking statements about Oracle and Aconex, including statements that involve risks and uncertainties concerning Oracle's proposed acquisition of Aconex, anticipated customer benefits and general business outlook. When used in this document, the words "anticipates", "can", "will", "look forward to", "expected" and similar expressions and any other statements that are not historical facts are intended to identify those assertions as forward-looking statements. Any such statement may be influenced by a variety of factors, many of which are beyond the control of Oracle or Aconex, that could cause actual outcomes and results to be materially different from those projected, described, expressed or implied in this document due to a number of risks and uncertainties. Potential risks and uncertainties include, among others, the possibility that the transaction will not close or that the closing may be delayed, the anticipated synergies of the combined companies may not be achieved after closing, the combined operations may not be successfully integrated in a timely manner, if at all, general economic conditions in regions in which either company does business, and the possibility that Oracle or Aconex may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors. Accordingly, no assurances can be given that any of the events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will transpire or occur, or if any of them do so, what impact they will have on the results of operations or financial condition of Oracle or Aconex. In addition, please refer to the documents that Oracle files with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K and that Aconex files with the Australian Securities Exchange Ltd. (the "ASX") on its Market Announcements Platform. These filings identify and address other important factors that could cause Oracle's and Aconex' respective operational and other results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements set forth in this document. You are cautioned to not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this document. Neither Oracle nor Aconex is under any duty to update any of the information in this document.
Additional Information about the Acquisition and Where to Find ItIn connection with the proposed transaction, Oracle will purchase all of the share capital of Aconex pursuant to a Scheme of Arrangement under the relevant laws of Australia (the "Scheme"). The terms and conditions relating to the Scheme, including the process for its implementation, are contained in a Scheme Implementation Deed agreed to between Oracle and Aconex dated December 16, 2017 (the "SID"). This document is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of Aconex, nor is it a substitute for the SID or other transaction materials that Aconex will file on the ASX in connection with the Scheme. The Scheme requires certain approval by Aconex stockholders at a meeting of the stockholders ("Scheme Meeting"). The Scheme Booklet containing information relating to the Scheme is expected to be mailed to Aconex stockholders prior to the Scheme Meeting and will contain important information. Holders of shares of Aconex are urged to read these documents when such documents become available because they will contain important information that holders of Aconex securities should consider before making any decision regarding tendering their securities.View original content with multimedia: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/oracle-buys-aconex-300572377.html SOURCE Oracle
