    ANV Security Group Announces 2012 Financial Results

    SHENZHEN, China, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ANV Security Group , a leading developer and global supplier of Internet cloud-based intelligent video and alarm monitoring technology, announces today its year end financial results for 2012.

    For the year ended 2012, the Company posted revenues of $185,000, compared with no revenue in 2011, and more than 40,000 subscriber locations registered for its Global Intelligent Eye (GIE) service in China. The Company also announces that 2013 will see significant technological advances for its service offerings, namely affordable intelligent biometric monitoring solutions for its subscribers.

    2012 revenues increased YoY from $0 to $185,000. The Company's gross margins improved to 93%. YoY Per share loss increased to $0.12, compared with $0.07 in 2011. Losses can be attributed due to a now-discontinued operation.

    "We expect the Company to be profitable by the end of 2013," said Chairman Wilson Wang, adding, "We are currently operating at break even and continue to add new customers every day. Our shareholders will be rewarded with stronger share performance in the coming quarters as we accelerate growth and become profitable while adding new features and services to our product offerings."

    By realizing revenues, ANV Security Group is well poised to continue its strong growth in the emerging market of China where it has the first mover advantage. The Company's strong financial performance since it divested of the low margin manufacturing business and focused on its core R&D and service offerings will only continue to improve going forward.

    Through the Company's ongoing R&D efforts, in the coming months affordable intelligent biometric monitoring features will be added to the capabilities of the various front end sensors supported on the ANVS system architecture. Those capabilities will include smart recognition of family members for household users and employee confirmation and behavior tracking for businesses. These highly advanced features will no longer be cost prohibitive to the majority of users.

    "We achieved several major milestones last year, and are looking for similar success in 2013," commented Mr. Wang. He also added, "Research and Development are the foundation of our business, and it is through these advances that we will continue to attract and retain a larger customer base in both the household and enterprise customer segments."

    About ANV Group

    ANV Security Group, Inc. (ANVS) was formally established in 2006 and became a public company in 2009 through a reverse merger transaction. Registered as a Nevada corporation, the Company currently trades on the OTCBB exchange under the stock symbol "ANVS". In 2010, the Company moved its headquarters from Vancouver, Canada to Shenzhen, a Special Economic Zone, in Southern China, where it continues to focus on research and development of its technology platforms and service solutions.

    As a research and development company, ANVS developed and patented the world's first large-scale cloud-based intelligent video and security alarm technology, having been issued its patent in October 2009 (US2009/0265747A1). The patent and technology enables multi-platform security monitoring and alerts that are scalable for multinational enterprises and even home usage. Any triggered alarm instantly alerts users via SMS, e-mail, telephone, mobile phone, or a combination of any, worldwide, and captures the event images in video surveillance servers.

    In 2011, ANV Security Group launched Global Intelligent Eye (GIE) to be a cost effective digital security monitoring solutions service provider for customers large and small. Tested in Canada and launched in China, GIE is focused on customer support and backend service for its multi-platform security monitoring and alerts in real-time through the internet or 3G networks. Customers are able to use a desktop computer, laptop, smart phone, or any other internet enabled device to visually monitor their locations where ANV devices have been installed.

    ThinkGeek extrudes the Play-Doh 3D Printer to the worldApp and Doh integration like never before

    FAIRFAX, Va., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ThinkGeek has always scoured the globe for the latest tech toys and gadgets to share with fans. Today ThinkGeek is proud to announce an innovative new toy to fulfill every wee maker's dream: the Play-Doh 3D Printer.



    Expensive "at-home" versions of 3D printers have been on the market for years now and for decades children have grown up with Play-Doh's extruder toys to shape colorful clay. The technology to blend those two realities has only recently become available and ThinkGeek is the exclusive retailer for this fantasy turned real.

    "We've always bought and sold the coolest stuff," states Chris "Mad-Man" Mindel, the brainchild behind this partnership. "This will allow people to create whatever they can imagine in Play-Doh, which I feel is an underutilized artistic and engineering medium."

    Users of the Play-Doh 3D Printer need only insert three cans of their favorite color, load up the free app on their tablet of choice, and get creative. Once a 3D model is rendered in the app, users manipulate the device's dials to create the solid piece.

    While not as sturdy as plastic-based 3D printers, Play-Doh 3D Printer creations will harden over time and can be painted like the real thing. This is an excellent opportunity for fostering creativity while teaching valuable CAD skills to the engineers of tomorrow.

    For more information about the Play-Doh 3D Printer, please visit

    Raytheon receives $155.6 million Rolling Airframe Missile contractLargest RAM agreement for German navy

    TUCSON, Ariz., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company was awarded a $155.6 million contract to manufacture Block 2 Rolling Airframe Missiles for delivery to the German navy. It represents the largest single RAM award by Germany. The contract was awarded in Raytheon's first quarter of 2013.

    RAM is a cooperative program between the U.S. and German governments with industry support from Raytheon and RAMSYS of Germany. The contract calls for production work to be shared between both companies.

    "This sale is the result of more than 35 years of unmatched testing achievements and capability improvements," said Dr. Taylor W. Lawrence, president of Raytheon Missile Systems. "It complements the $100 million RAM Block 2 production contracts with the U.S. Navy signed in 2012 and follows our company's 11 critical Block 2 development test flights. RAM is on solid footing to begin government testing in May."

    Robust International Fleet Self-defense System
    RAM is a supersonic, lightweight, quick reaction, fire-and-forget missile providing defense against anti-ship cruise missiles, helicopter and airborne threats, and hostile surface craft. The missile's autonomous dual-mode, passive radio frequency and infrared guidance design provides a high-firepower capability for engaging multiple threats simultaneously. RAM is aboard nearly 100 ships as an integral self-defense weapon for the navies of Egypt, Germany, Greece, Japan, Republic of Korea, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.

    The RAM Block 2 upgrade includes a four-axis independent control actuator system and an increase in rocket motor capability, increasing the missile's effective range and delivering a significant increase in maneuverability. The improved missile also incorporates an upgraded passive radio frequency seeker and a digital autopilot.

    VANCOUVER, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - TELUS announced today it has successfully closed its previously announced offering of C$1.7 billion in senior unsecured notes in two series - C$1.1 billion of 11-year Notes with a 3.35 per cent interest rate, Series CK, maturing on April 1, 2024 and C$600 million of 30-year Notes with a 4.40 per cent interest rate, Series CL, maturing on April 1, 2043.

    The net proceeds of the offering will be used to repay the Company's outstanding C$300 million of 5.00 per cent Series CB Notes due June 3, 2013 at maturity, to fund the proposed early redemption of the Company's outstanding C$700 million of 4.95 per cent Series CF Notes due May 15, 2014, to repay outstanding commercial paper (short term floating rate debt) and for general corporate purposes.

    The offering was made pursuant to a prospectus supplement dated March 26, 2013 to TELUS' short form base shelf prospectus dated October 3, 2011 filed with securities regulatory authorities in Canada and the United States.

    This media release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities in any jurisdiction. The securities being offered have not been approved or disapproved by any Canadian or U.S. securities regulatory authority, nor has any authority passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of the short form base shelf prospectus or the prospectus supplement.

    TELUS announced today that it has given notice of redemption of its $700 million in 4.95 per cent, Series CF, Notes due May 15, 2014 (CUSIP # 87971MAJ2). The Company's intention to redeem these notes early was previously announced on March 26, 2013.

    The redemption price, which is payable on May 15, 2013, will be based on the yield for a Government of Canada bond with the equivalent maturity plus 71 basis points pursuant to the trust indenture governing these notes, but in no case will be less than par. The Government of Canada bond yield used for this redemption will be the mid-market yield as quoted by a dealer selected by the Company at noon (Toronto time) on May 10, 2013. The note-holders will also receive the regularly scheduled semi-annual interest payment on May 15, 2013.

    Costs and non-cash write-downs related to this early redemption are expected to result in increased financing charges, which will have an after tax impact on the Company's income statement in the second quarter of 2013 of approximately 2.5 to 3 cents per share, after giving effect to the mid-April two-for-one stock split announced on March 14, 2013.

    Non-registered holders (banks, brokerage firms or other financial institutions) of the notes that maintain their interests through The Canadian Depository for Securities Limited (CDS) should contact their CDS customer service representative with any questions about the note redemption. Beneficial holders of the notes with questions about the redemption should contact their respective brokerage firm or financial institution, which holds interests in the notes on their behalf.

    Databases contain information that is most crucial to a business - from client data and financial records to email and payroll. Yet, research from a recent Carbonite Study* shows:

    --  Database Data is at Risk: 25 percent of small businesses with at least
    one database (Exchange server or SQL Server) have lost or accidentally
    deleted data from it.
    --  Database Backup is a Must: Small businesses indicated that the ability
    to back up SQL databases (79 percent) and Microsoft Exchange (66
    percent) ranks high in importance when selecting a backup solution.

    A Complete Cloud Database Backup Solution for Small Businesses
    "Based on small business market needs, a cloud backup solution that safeguards both a business' computers and its critical databases is imperative. But for resellers serving this market, being able to deliver a solution easily, affordably and securely implemented through one vendor is ideal," said David Hauser, Senior Director of Channel Development. "Our Database Backup solution provides Carbonite reseller partners with greater functionality that will help them better meet the growing needs of their small business clients all through one platform and provider."

    Resellers can now sell Database Backup as an add-on to Carbonite's BusinessPremier cloud backup solution for small businesses. Carbonite Database Backup will back up a range of databases, virtual machines and applications, including Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange Server, Sharepoint, Hyper-V, Oracle and MySQL, and provides protection for an unlimited number of databases and live applications.

    Carbonite Reseller Program Overview
    "As we continue to add features and functionality across Carbonite's offerings, we have seen an incredible response to the program and in fact, our program has resulted in an increase of more than 50 percent in our reseller partner community since June of last year," continued Hauser.

    The Carbonite Reseller Program delivers flexible account management tools for its resellers, and arms them with secure, affordable cloud backup that is easy to deploy and to manage for their clients. With the new Carbonite Reseller Program, cloud backup resellers can offer Carbonite's complete line of Home and Business solutions - which includes Home, HomePlus and HomePremier for home or home office users, and Business and BusinessPremier for small business users. The full range of solutions gives Carbonite online backup resellers more options to best meet their clients' varied needs. Resellers are given access to a dedicated account management team, marketing materials through the online Dashboard, and a range of free webinars designed to help resellers build their businesses.

    What Database Backup Means to Resellers and Their Clients
    On Tuesday, April 30 at 12:00pm ET (9:00am PT), the Carbonite Reseller team will host a webinar to discuss the importance of database backup for small business clients and how offering cloud backup to protect their databases can build your business.

    ViewCast Reports 2012 Fourth Quarter, Year-End ResultsReports Profitable Fourth Quarter; Sequential Gain in Revenues

    PLANO, Texas, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewCast Corporation , a developer of industry-leading solutions for the capture and streaming of video over enterprise, broadband, and mobile networks, today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

    The Company reported profitable results on net sales of $3.1 million in the fourth quarter 2012 compared to $3.4 million in the prior year period and up sequentially from the $2.7 million in the 2012 third quarter. On-going operational expense controls and strong sales of the Company's Osprey(R) Video cards at year end enabled ViewCast to report its first profitable quarter since 2010.

    ViewCast Chief Executive Officer John Hammock said: "Since the new management team took over in 2011, we have been successful in reducing operating costs, resulting in net income improvement that turned positive in the fourth quarter. We also had a very good quarter in terms of Osprey video capture card sales, a product family that is recognized as an industry leader with a loyal customer base. On our appliance side, some of our older, legacy products have lost ground, but our new products, such as our Niagara(R) 9100 products that we've introduced throughout 2012, are now gaining traction and we expect further growth this year in this product line as well as Osprey."

    Hammock continued: "As is typical for the telecom and Internet equipment segment, we are seeing our normal seasonality, where sales start slowly and pick up as the year progresses. We expect to continue to keep costs under control, work to increase our margins, introduce new Osprey and Niagara products throughout the year, and build to a very strong close for 2013. As our Niagara products and our Osprey cards build traction throughout the year, we remain optimistic about achieving profitability."

    2012 Operational Highlights

    --  Launched the Niagara 9100 series, an ultra-high-density/high performing,
    video encoder platform. This new video encoder series streams SD and HD
    video and enables service providers, broadcasters and enterprises to
    power digital content for existing and new audiences in mobile, web and
    IPTV markets.
    --  Introduced the new Osprey 820e video capture card that integrates audio
    and video with a traditional graphics interface - an industry first and
    an ideal solution for lecture capture.
    --  Added two more cards in the 800 series, the Osprey 825e and 845e
    multi-input SDI capture cards, leveraging the strength of the Osprey
    700e card which is an industry standard.
    --  At NAB 2012, introduced the latest version of its Niagara SCX
    comprehensive management software, aimed at lowering cost and increasing
    video delivery capabilities for content delivery networks and service
    --  Hired Wayne Shackelford as Vice President of Worldwide Sales. Mr.
    Shackelford is a veteran global sales executive with more than 25 years
    of experience in sales and business development. His primary strength is

    Linux software engineers whose goal is to improve the Linux platform for
    audio and video applications.

    Fourth Quarter Financial Results

    In the 2012 fourth quarter, revenues were $3.1 million compared to $3.4 million in the prior year period. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter 2012 were $1.7 million compared to $2.1 million for the prior year period. Operating income for the fourth quarter 2012 was $165,000 compared to operating income of $21,000 for the year-earlier period.

    Net profit for the fourth quarter 2012 was $42,000, compared to net loss of $(936,000), or $(0.02) per fully diluted share, in the fourth quarter 2011.

    EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the 2012 fourth quarter was $167,000, compared to $(721,000) in the 2011 fourth quarter. EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that ViewCast management believes can be helpful in assessing the Company's overall performance and considered as an indicator of operating efficiency and earnings quality. The Company suggests that EBITDA be viewed in conjunction with the Company's reported financial results or other financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

    Year-End Financial Results

    For the year ended December 31, 2012, revenues were $12.1 million compared to $14.1 million for 2011. Operating expenses for 2012 were $8.8 million, compared to $10.0 million for 2011, resulting in operating losses of $(1.2) million for both 2012 and 2011.

    Net loss for the 2012 was $(1.5) million, compared to a net loss of $(3.0) million for 2011. For 2012, net loss applicable to common shareholders was $(1.5) million, or $(0.02) per share on a fully diluted basis. Due to the accounting treatment for the preferred stock redemption during the 2011, the net income applicable to common shareholders benefitted by $5.6 million, which together with an adjustment of $282,000 for stated preferred stock dividends resulted in net income applicable to common shareholders of $2.3 million, or $0.05 per share on a fully diluted basis, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

    EBITDA for 2012 was $(966,000), compared to $(2.1) million for 2011.

    TI introduces 10-A SWIFT(TM) DC/DC converter with highest current density17-V synchronous buck converter integrates MOSFETs and features tiny HotRod(TM) package

    DALLAS, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) today introduced a new synchronous step-down DC/DC converter with integrated MOSFETs in a very small 3.5-mm by 3.5-mm HotRod(TM) QFN package. The SWIFT(TM) 10-A TPS54020 features the highest power density and includes frequency synchronization, 180-degree out-of-phase switching and selectable current limit to power FPGAs, system-on-chip (SoC), DSPs and processors in high-voltage, space-constrained communication, gaming and industrial computing applications. Using the converter together with TI's WEBENCH((R)) online design tool simplifies high-voltage DC/DC conversion and speeds the design process. For more information and samples, visit

    The new HotRod integrated circuit package protects the integrated MOSFETs from parasitic inductance and allows low resistance, enabling high current and efficiency and small size. The thermally enhanced, 15-lead package is 50 percent smaller than similar offerings.

    The TPS54020 joins TI's point-of-load DC/DC converter family, which includes the 6-A TPS54623 in a 3-mm by 3-mm QFN package, and the 12-A LM21212-1 and 15-A LM21215 converters, offered in a thermally enhanced eTSSOP-20 exposed pad package.

    Key features and benefits of the TPS54020 DC/DC converter

    --  Integrated 8-milliohm high-side and 6-milliohm low-side MOSFETs provide
    up to 96-percent efficiency from 12 V to 1 V.
    --  Selectable 6-A, 8-A and 10-A current limit thresholds allow optimization
    for efficiency at a lower output current, while reducing the size of
    external components.
    --  180-degree out-of-phase switching reduces input current ripple by up to
    50 percent.
    --  200-KHz to 1.2-MHz adjustable switching frequency supports small output
    inductors and capacitors for further space savings.

    Availability, packaging and pricing

    The TPS54020 DC/DC converter is available in volume now from TI and its authorized distributors. It is offered in a 15-lead HotRod QFN( )package and is priced at US$3.45 in 1,000-unit quantities.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell today announced that its award-winning wireless team was honored as a recipient of the Outstanding Leadership & Contribution Award by Wi-Fi Alliance((R)) for the fourth consecutive year. The annual award recognizes member companies that have demonstrated exemplary leadership that positively impacts the Wi-Fi((R)) industry. Having been honored in 2009, 2010, 2011 and now in 2012, this prestigious recognition reflects Marvell's ongoing participation in Wi-Fi Alliance technology certification and development activities. Marvell's wireless team received the Award during the March 2013 Wi-Fi Alliance member meeting in Shanghai.


    "Marvell is continuously investing in and expanding our wireless solutions to meet the needs of consumers around the world. We are very humbled to be honored four years in a row by Wi-Fi Alliance, the industry's premier organization, for our leadership and contributions to the Wi-Fi industry," said Weili Dai, Co-Founder of Marvell. "During the past 10 years, we have built a strong foundation that delivers robust carrier-grade wireless networks and an Always-On Always-Connected experience for next generation smart devices. Our breakthrough wireless solutions power today's most advanced enterprise access points, mobile and imaging devices, gaming consoles, in-vehicle infotainment systems, Smart TVs and Smart homes.

    MetroPCS Mails Letter to Stockholders Reiterating Compelling Value Creation Potential of Proposed Combination with T-Mobile USAUrges Stockholders to Vote 'FOR' Proposed Combination on GREEN Proxy Card

    RICHARDSON, Texas, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MetroPCS Communications, Inc. today mailed a letter to stockholders in connection with its proposed combination with T-Mobile USA, Inc. ("T-Mobile"). The letter describes the significant benefits to MetroPCS' stockholders resulting from the proposed combination of MetroPCS and T-Mobile and addresses certain assumptions that ISS based its report on, leading to the wrong conclusions regarding the proposed combination.

    The full text of the letter follows:

    April 1, 2013

    Dear Fellow Stockholder:

    The MetroPCS Communications, Inc. Special Meeting of Stockholders on Friday, April 12, 2013 to vote on the proposed combination with T-Mobile USA, Inc. is less than two weeks away. Because some of the proposals required to approve the proposed combination require the affirmative vote of a majority of all outstanding shares, your vote is extremely important.

    Remember - the failure to vote or an abstention will have the same effect as a vote against the proposed combination.

    --  If the proposed combination is not approved, MetroPCS' stockholders will
    not enjoy its compelling benefits - many of which are only available by
    combining MetroPCS and T-Mobile.
    --  Do not reject this proposed combination - do not take the risk of a loss
    of value for MetroPCS' stockholders.
    --  There can be no assurance that MetroPCS will be able to deliver the same
    or better stockholder value as a stand-alone wireless company in the

    The MetroPCS board unanimously recommends that stockholders vote their shares FOR all of the proposals relating to the proposed combination by returning the GREEN proxy card with a FOR vote for all proposals. The proposed combination will create the value leader in the U.S. wireless marketplace and provide significantly more value and potential equity upside to MetroPCS stockholders than could be achieved by MetroPCS on a stand-alone basis.


    After years of discussions and negotiations with various third parties, only negotiations with Deutsche Telekom ("DT") have resulted in an executed combination agreement, and no other bidders have emerged in the six months since the proposed combination was announced.(1)( )

    --  Institutional Shareholder Services ("ISS"), an independent proxy
    advisory firm, recognizes that MetroPCS' "exploration of strategic
    alternatives appears to have been thorough."(2)
    --  As a result, MetroPCS' stockholders should not assume that another buyer
    will acquire MetroPCS if the proposed combination is not approved.
    --  Glass Lewis, another independent proxy advisory firm, agrees that the
    MetroPCS board explored all alternatives, noting that, "In our opinion,
    the MetroPCS Board conducted a lengthy review of strategic alternatives
    and ultimately reached perhaps the inevitable conclusion that MetroPCS
    needs to combine with a larger strategic partner in order to address its
    challenges as a standalone company."(3)

    The MetroPCS board and management team, who have decades of experience in, and an in-depth understanding of, the wireless marketplace, determined that the proposed combination will deliver more value to MetroPCS stockholders than MetroPCS on a stand-alone basis.

    The proposed combination, the terms of which resulted from months of rigorous negotiations, offers both immediate and long-term compelling economic value to MetroPCS' stockholders. It will provide MetroPCS' stockholders with an immediate $1.5 billion aggregate cash payment, or approximately $4.06 per share (prior to the reverse stock split that will occur in connection with the closing of the proposed combination), as well as an approximate 26% ownership stake in the combined company that allows all MetroPCS stockholders to participate in the expected significant equity upside of the combined company, including projected cost synergies of $6-7 billion net present value ("NPV")(4) and annual run-rate cost synergies projected at $1.2-1.5 billion after an integration period.(5)


    The combined company will be the leading value carrier in the U.S. wireless marketplace and will be able to compete more effectively against the other national wireless competitors through its expanded scale, spectrum and financial resources. Importantly, the combined company will have significantly greater spectrum and financial resources than MetroPCS on a stand-alone basis and will be in a better position to participate in future industry growth and consolidation.

    The combined company will directly benefit from its:

    --  Strong financial profile:
    --  The combined company is expected to have BB S&P credit rating, which
    is two notches better than MetroPCS stand-alone and many peers;
    --  Target five-year (from 2012 to 2017) compounded annual growth rates
    in the range of 3% to 5% for revenues, 7% to 10% for EBITDA and 15%
    to 20% for free cash flow;((6))
    --  Target EBITDA margin of 34% to 36% at the end of the five-year
    period (from 2012 to 2017); and
    --  Projected cost synergies of $6-7 billion NPV,(4) with an annual
    run-rate of $1.2-1.5 billion after an integration period.(5)
    --  Robust spectrum position:
    --  The combined company will have the network capacity to support the
    anticipated acceleration in customers' mobile data demand.
    --  The combined company's spectrum position in major metropolitan areas
    will be four times greater on average than MetroPCS on a stand-alone
    --  The combined company will have more AWS spectrum than any other
    carrier. AWS is emerging as one of the primary LTE bands in the
    United States.
    --  Complementary spectrum that allows for greater 4G LTE bandwidth,
    including at least 20x20 MHz in approximately 90% of top 25 metro
    areas by 2014+, which is expected to yield high levels of
    efficiency, capacity and throughput.
    --  Seasoned executive leadership:
    --  The combined company's senior management team has over 150 years of
    combined telecommunications industry experience, and is committed to
    growth and cost leadership.
    --  John Legere, current President and Chief Executive Officer of
    T-Mobile, will serve as the President and Chief Executive Officer of
    the combined company and has over 32 years of experience in the U.S.
    and global telecommunications and technology industries.
    --  J. Braxton Carter, currently MetroPCS' Chief Financial Officer, will
    serve as Chief Financial Officer of the combined company and has
    over 15 years of wireless experience.
    --  Highly-qualified, diverse Board:
    --  The combined company's board includes current and former executives
    of AT&T, Dell, Rockwell International Corporation and Madison
    Dearborn Partners, LLC.


    Vote FOR the proposed combination with T-Mobile to receive an immediate cash payment and a meaningful equity stake in the combined company, allowing you to participate in the growth and future profitability of the combined company that will:

    --  Accelerate nationwide 4G services: T-Mobile is the only carrier that
    presently offers nationwide unlimited 4G to new customers.  When its $4
    billion network modernization is complete - anticipated to occur at the
    end of 2013 - the combined company customer base will have better
    coverage, greater network reliability and faster service speeds.
    --  Approximately 37,000 sites are planned to be enhanced over three
    years with multi-mode radios, tower-top electronics, and new
    --  Upon completion of the migration of the MetroPCS customer base and
    the inclusion of selected MetroPCS sites, the combined company will
    have approximately 55,000 equivalent cell sites.
    --  Advance high-speed LTE network:  T-Mobile is deploying the latest LTE
    technology (Release 10), paving the way to LTE Advanced.  T-Mobile's 4G
    LTE deployment will complement its existing nationwide 4G network --
    which third-party tests show rivals or beats existing competitors' LTE
    networks -- creating what T-Mobile expects to be the fastest 4G
    combination in the United States.
    --  T-Mobile launched its 4G LTE network in seven U.S. cities on March
    19, 2013, and by the end of 2013, the combined company's robust and
    high capacity LTE network is projected to cover a population of
    approximately 200 million people in the United States (100 million
    by mid-year 2013).
    --  A broad variety of devices: T-Mobile has a broad array of devices from
    which its customers can choose, which will be available to the combined
    company's customers.
    --  In tandem with the debut of its 4G LTE network service, T-Mobile
    announced that it will have several 4G LTE-capable devices
    available, including Samsung Galaxy S 4, BlackBerry Z10, HTC One,
    T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 Mobile HotSpot LTE and Samsung Galaxy Note II.
    --  Beginning April 12, 2013, T-Mobile will offer the 4G LTE-capable
    iPhone 5 to customers nationwide via one of the simplest and most
    competitive consumer rate plans in the industry.  iPhone 4S and
    iPhone 4 will also be available in select markets.
    --  Focus on branding and enhanced value propositions: The combined company
    will offer its services under at least two unique brands, with a focus
    on simplicity, unlimited data, and "No Surprises."  T-Mobile's 100%
    Value plans offer visibility, transparency, standardized pricing, and
    lowest out-the-door device prices.
    --  Expand the MetroPCS brand geographically: The combined company will
    extend the MetroPCS brand and distribution to geographic areas where
    MetroPCS does not currently have a network, and will offer a variety of
    unlimited wireless broadband mobile service plans and a broad array of
    device choices that provide customers with a compelling value
    proposition.  Only a small portion of this geographic expansion is
    incorporated into the business plan of the combined company with the
    remainder offering additional upside to the business plan.
    --  Create a multi-segment player: The combined company will offer a full
    suite of services, and is ramping up its B2B capability and invest in
    new capabilities to support an expanded MVNO business.
    --  Capitalize on projected cost synergies: The proposed combination of
    MetroPCS and T-Mobile is expected to yield projected annual run-rate
    cost synergies of $1.2 - 1.5 billion after an integration period, driven
    primarily by the convergence of both customer bases to a single
    --  We expect that approximately two and a half years following the
    closing, substantially all MetroPCS customers will have been
    migrated to the new network and the old MetroPCS network will be
    shut down, saving the majority of the operating and capital expenses
    associated with operating, maintaining and expanding the MetroPCS
    legacy network.
    --  Additional savings are expected to come from reduced tower, backhaul
    and roaming expenses and capacity and expansion capital expenses as
    well as certain non-network savings.  Operating on a single network
    is also expected to increase asset utilization and reduce expense
    per customer.


    Simply put, a combination with T-Mobile represents more certain and more significant value than MetroPCS could create as a stand-alone company.

    --  The proposed combination offers compelling benefits to MetroPCS'
    stockholders by offering immediate and significant value for your
    investment in MetroPCS as well as the opportunity to participate in the
    expected upside potential of the combined company.
    --  The 26% equity ownership interest of MetroPCS' stockholders is at the
    upper end - or above - the implied percentage ownership and contribution
    analyses performed by the special committee's independent financial
    --  In addition, the special committee's financial advisor's discounted cash
    flow ("DCF") and multiples analyses demonstrate that the 26% equity
    ownership interest results in substantial upside over a stand-alone
    valuation of MetroPCS.
    --  If T-Mobile were contributed with $4 billion lower debt (i.e. $4 billion
    higher equity), per P. Schoenfeld Asset Management LP's ("PSAM")
    previously filed presentation, then the resulting MetroPCS stockholders'
    ownership in the combined company would need to be adjusted to reduce
    MetroPCS stockholders' ownership from 26% to 12%(7) - 15%(8).
    --  A less favorable ownership stake of between 17%(7)-24%(8) would result
    after appropriate adjustments for $1.5 billion MetroPCS cash reserved
    for spectrum and $1.5 billion cash payment as disclosed in the MetroPCS
    amended definitive proxy statement.
    --  The stand-alone MetroPCS value per share (after deducting $1.5 billion
    in cash reserved for the acquisition of spectrum) represents an
    approximately 22% decline vs. the current MetroPCS share price.(9  )
    --  Even PSAM notes in its previously filed presentation that it may be
    appropriate to adjust for the $1.5 billion of spectrum in a relative DCF

    Given T-Mobile's much higher asset value, DT could only facilitate MetroPCS' stockholders' 26% stake by contributing T-Mobile with sufficient leverage to create the intended ownership split. The 26% stake will allow MetroPCS' stockholders to participate meaningfully in the expected substantial upside of the combined company resulting from the significant projected synergies.


    On March 27, 2013, ISS issued a report regarding the proposed combination. The report is based on assumptions that are different than those used by MetroPCS' experienced management and board and, as a result, ISS has reached the wrong conclusions. Importantly, ISS bases its valuation perspectives on two important assumptions that differ from the analysis the MetroPCS advisors and board relied upon:

    --  ISS used a combined company 2013 EBITDA that excludes $573 million of
    reasonable and appropriate adjustments made by MetroPCS management to
    T-Mobile's 2013 forecast.  It is therefore based on a T-Mobile
    forecasted 2013 EBITDA that is lower than what MetroPCS and T-Mobile
    believe is appropriate based on extensive due diligence of the T-Mobile
    plan.  Although ISS noted that $250 million of the $573 million related
    to the introduction of Apple products was reasonable, ISS decided not to
    account for any of the adjustments "at least until the adjustments are
    more fully documented and discussed ..."(2)
    --  ISS also disagreed with MetroPCS and its financial advisors that the
    $1.5 billion for spectrum should be deducted for valuation purposes.
    Contrary to ISS' view, if MetroPCS uses its $1.5 billion in cash to
    purchase spectrum required to achieve its long-term plan, the market
    will NOT increase MetroPCS' enterprise value by $1.5 billion to account
    for the spectrum value - wireless companies are valued as going concerns
    based upon EBITDA and cash flow, not asset value.  Therefore, MetroPCS
    would effectively need multiple expansion of over 1x to make up for such
    value.  In short, MetroPCS believes that, should it spend the $1.5
    billion on spectrum, its equity valuation will not benefit from the
    value when adjusting from Enterprise to Equity Value (or value per
    --  Despite providing a detailed DCF valuation of the projected $6 - $7
    billion in synergies, ISS only used a $4 billion valuation for
    synergies, which understates the combined company's synergy value by
    approximately $1.76(10) per share.


    Market demand does not exist for the size of the required $21 billion debt commitment from DT - at signing or today. The pricing mechanism for the DT debt is designed to reflect market conditions when the notes are priced, based on comparable bonds and high-yield indices, including MetroPCS' own high yield debt. Since the end of the year, rates in the market have improved, which has resulted in the current blended rate of the DT debt dropping to approximately 7.2% as of March 22, 2013. The estimated spread between the 8- and 10-year DT notes and the 6.25% and 6.625% MetroPCS Notes is 60bps and 47bps, respectively. In light of the overall size of the DT notes and the low fees payable to DT, this spread is very reasonable.

    The 7.7% weighted average interest rate cited in PSAM's report is based on mistaken assumptions and is stale as it is from the end of 2012, which is the period to which the year-end pro-forma financials disclosed in the amended definitive proxy relate. The DT debt avoids significant financing and underwriting fees for the combined company and its shareholders equating to a $1.3 billion saving(11) or ~$0.90 per combined company share,(12) compared to a third party financing if it were available.

    Importantly, DT's financing provides the combined company with significant breathing room through a long-lasting capital structure with no maturities before 2018, which allows the combined company to focus on the business and on realizing synergies from the combination immediately post-closing without having to refinance significant debt. By then, the combined company is expected to have de-levered significantly through cost savings initiatives, including cost reductions related to tower, backhaul and roaming expenses, customer migration to more cost-efficient HSPA+, capital expenditure savings and post-integration synergies.

    The combined company's last 12 months ("LTM") leverage is in-line with peers and MetroPCS, and its S&P credit rating of BB is higher than ratings of MetroPCS and many peers, as shown in the table below:

    --  The combined company is expected to de-lever organically after 2013 as a
    result of cost savings initiatives, significantly lower capital
    expenditures and post-integration synergies.
    --  The combined company's agreement with Apple is projected to be accretive
    to operating free cash flow and EBITDA beginning in 2014.
    --  Investor comfort with the combined company's capital structure and
    credit profile is underscored by strong support for the combined
    company's March 2013 senior notes offering as well as the December 2012
    consent solicitation on MetroPCS' existing senior notes.
    --  Appropriate leverage, such as is present here, allows stockholders to
    benefit exponentially from increases in company value.

    Further, the call protection of the DT notes is market standard and appropriate. Without this call protection, rates would have been significantly higher. The make-whole provisions also are market standard. The call protection and make-whole provisions do not deter a future M&A transaction. ISS is mistaken that the call protection prevents deleveraging of the combined company. The combined company will de-lever as its cash levels increase from free cash flow over time.

    Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

    This document includes "forward-looking statements" for the purpose of the "safe harbor" provisions within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. Any statements made in this document that are not statements of historical fact, and statements about our beliefs, opinions, projections, strategies, and expectations, are forward-looking statements and should be evaluated as such. These forward-looking statements often include words such as "anticipate," "expect," "suggests," "plan," "believe," "intend," "estimates," "targets," "views," "projects," "should," "would," "could," "may," "become," "forecast," and other similar expressions. These forward-looking statements include, among others, statements about the benefits of the proposed combination, the prospects, value and value creation capability of the combined company and MetroPCS on a stand-alone basis, projected valuation and valuation modeling, the projected synergies and cost savings resulting from the proposed combination, the positioning of the combined company and MetroPCS stand-alone versus its competitors, compelling terms and nature of the proposed combination, future expansion of the MetroPCS brand into new areas, benefits to MetroPCS customers, value of the proposed combination to MetroPCS stockholders, future MetroPCS stock prices, customer perceptions of the combined company's service, projected population coverage, the combined company's ability to achieve projected cost synergies, forecasts of combined company revenues, EBITDA, and FCF, projected 5-year CAGRs, forecast, projections and success of strategic plans of MetroPCS and impact on business and stock price, the combined company's leverage ratios, the benefits of leverage and its ability to de-leverage organically and over time, the combined company's spectrum position and compatibility, the combined company's competitive position, impact of the proposed combination on the benefits of the LTE network, T-Mobile's 4G network plans and its ability to achieve it, expected completion dates for T-Mobile's LTE network, T-Mobile's strategy and plans for decommissioning MetroPCS' network and the ability to achieve it, the benefits of 4G, the relationship between equity value and investments in spectrum, MetroPCS' projected upgrade rate, diversity and availability of handsets, projected financing costs, ability of obtaining financing in the market, ability to secure acceptable rates and terms in the market, if at all, nature and extent of acceptable and marketable financing terms, the projected future rates, credit ratings and fees associated with financing, the success of the combined company, its operating structure, management or future governance and compliance, and other statements regarding the combined company's strategies, prospects, projected results, plans, or future performance.

    Emulex Appoints Gene Frantz and Greg Clark to its Board of DirectorsFrantz and Clark Enhance Board's Computer Data Networking Business Expertise

    COSTA MESA, Calif., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Emulex Corporation today announced that Gene Frantz and Greg Clark have been appointed to the Emulex Board of Directors. Mr. Frantz and Mr. Clark add expertise across the spectrum of technology and telecom sectors.


    "I have known Gene Frantz for several years and admired his demonstrated abilities and knowledge of the IT marketplace. I have also more recently come to know Greg Clark and I have been very impressed with his executive experience and insights concerning the network performance management market which Emulex is just entering. I believe that the Board has made excellent choices," said Jim McCluney, chief executive officer (CEO), Emulex, "and on behalf of the Board, we welcome both to the team."

    Mr. Frantz is a business executive with deep technology and telecom experience. He was most recently a partner of TPG Capital ("TPG") having worked there from 1999 to 2012. Prior to joining TPG, Mr. Frantz worked at Oracle Corporation and Morgan Stanley. Mr. Frantz previously served on the boards of directors of ALLTEL, Avaya, Freescale Semiconductor, Network General, MEMC Electronic Materials, Paradyne Networks (acquired by Zhone Technologies), SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., and Certance Holdings (formerly a division of Seagate Technology acquired by Quantum Corp.). Mr. Frantz received an M.B.A. from Stanford Graduate School of Business and a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley.

    Mr. Clark has more than 23 years of leadership experience successfully growing technology companies through innovation, focus and execution. He has a strong operations and technology background that spans security, cloud services, supply chain and network management. Mr. Clark has been CEO and member of the Board of Directors of Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (BCSI) since August 2011. During his tenure Mr. Clark led the company through take-private transaction and associated restructuring. Under Mr. Clark's leadership BCSI has returned to double digit revenue growth with industry leading margins. Prior to joining Blue Coat, Mr. Clark was President and CEO of Mincom, a global software and services provider to asset-intensive industries. At Mincom, he expanded the company's market opportunity and revenue via the addition of cloud-based solutions and a modernization of Mincom's legacy products. The company was acquired by the ABB Group in July 2011. Before joining Mincom, Mr. Clark served as President and Chief Executive Officer at E2open, a leader in supply chain networks. Mr. Clark was one of E2open's founders and transformed E2Open from an early startup into a market-leading solutions provider supporting more than 15,000 customers worldwide. Earlier in his career, Mr. Clark founded security software firm Dascom. In 1999, IBM acquired the company, and the technology became the foundation for Tivoli's security product line. At IBM, Mr. Clark was a Distinguished Engineer and Vice President of IBM's Tivoli Systems, where he was instrumental in defining and selling IBM security and management products. He previously held senior roles with global IT companies, such as AT&T Unix Software Operation and Unix System Labs. Mr Clark serves as an independent director at the Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX).

    "I am honored to be asked to join the Emulex Board," said Gene Frantz. "I look forward to working with the rest of the Board to help Emulex to realize its potential for stockholders as a leader in the connectivity and network communications markets."

    "Joining the Emulex Board is an exciting opportunity for me," said Greg Clark. "The management and Board of Emulex have set an ambitious path, and I am happy to contribute my expertise for the benefit of the company and its shareholders."

    "We are very pleased to have worked collaboratively with Emulex to add Gene Frantz and Greg Clark to its Board," said Jesse Cohn, a Portfolio Manager at Elliott Management, which manages funds that together are the largest shareholder of Emulex. Mr. Cohn continued, "Jim and his team at Emulex have a solid strategy and have developed leading technology in their focused markets and we believe that the addition of Gene and Greg to the Board will help Emulex to realize meaningful value for stockholders."

    Emulex collaborated with Elliott in the addition of Mr. Eugene J. Frantz and Mr. Gregory S. Clark to the Emulex Corporation Board of Directors. The agreement, which includes limitations on acquisitions of additional Emulex shares by Elliott, is being filed with the SEC by Emulex.

    Emulex Safe Harbor Statement
    "Safe Harbor'' Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: With the exception of historical information, the statements set forth above, contain forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties. We expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or changes to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect any future events or circumstances. We wish to caution readers that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors include the possibility that we may not realize the anticipated benefits from the acquisition of Endace Limited on a timely basis or at all, and may be unable to integrate the technology, operations and personnel of Endace into our existing operations in a timely and efficient manner. In addition, intellectual property claims, with or without merit, that could result in costly litigation, cause product shipment delays, require us to indemnify customers, or require us to enter into royalty or licensing agreements, which may or may not be available. Furthermore, we have in the past obtained, and may be required in the future to obtain, licenses of technology owned by other parties. We cannot be certain that the necessary licenses will be available or that they can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms. If we were to fail to obtain such royalty or licensing agreements in a timely manner and on reasonable terms, our business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected. Ongoing lawsuits, such as the action brought by Broadcom Corporation (Broadcom), present inherent risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, or results of operations. Such potential risks include continuing expenses of litigation, risk of loss of patent rights, risk of monetary damages, risk of injunction against the sale of products incorporating the technology in question, counterclaims, attorneys' fees, incremental costs associated with product or component redesigns, and diversion of management's attention from other business matters. With respect to the continuing Broadcom litigation, such potential risks also include the adequacy of any sunset period to make design changes, the ability to implement any design changes, the availability of customer resources to complete any re-qualification or re-testing that may be needed, the ability to maintain favorable working relationships with Emulex suppliers of serializer/deserializer (SerDes) modules, and the ability to obtain a settlement which does not put us at a competitive disadvantage. In addition, the fact that the economy generally, and the technology and storage market segments specifically, have been in a state of uncertainty makes it difficult to determine if past experience is a good guide to the future and makes it impossible to determine if markets will grow or shrink in the short term. Continued weakness in domestic and worldwide macro-economic conditions, related disruptions in world credit and equity markets, and the resulting economic uncertainty for our customers, as well as the storage and converged networking market as a whole, has and could continue to adversely affect our revenues and results of operations. As a result of these uncertainties, we are unable to predict our future results with any accuracy. Other factors affecting these forward-looking statements include but are not limited to the following: faster than anticipated declines in the storage networking market, slower than expected growth of the converged networking market or the failure of our Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers to successfully incorporate our products into their systems; our dependence on a limited number of customers and the effects of the loss of, decrease in or delays of orders by any such customers, or the failure of such customers to make timely payments; the emergence of new or stronger competitors as a result of consolidation movements in the market; the timing and market acceptance of our products or our OEM customers' new or enhanced products; costs associated with entry into new areas of the server and storage technology markets; the variability in the level of our backlog and the variable and seasonal procurement patterns of our customers; any inadequacy of our intellectual property protection and the costs of actual or potential third-party claims of infringement and any related indemnity obligations or adverse judgments; the effect of any actual or potential unsolicited offers to acquire us; proxy contests or the activities of activist investors; impairment charges, including but not limited to goodwill and intangible assets; changes in tax rates or legislation; the effects of acquisitions; the effects of terrorist activities, natural disasters, and any resulting disruption in our supply chain or customer purchasing patterns or any other resulting economic or political instability; the highly competitive nature of the markets for our products as well as pricing pressures that may result from such competitive conditions; the effects of changes in our business model to separately charge for software; the effect of rapid migration of customers towards newer, lower cost product platforms; possible transitions from board or box level to application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) solutions for selected applications; a shift in unit product mix from higher-end to lower-end or mezzanine card products; a faster than anticipated decrease in the average unit selling prices or an increase in the manufactured cost of our products; delays in product development; our reliance on third-party suppliers and subcontractors for components and assembly; our ability to attract and retain key technical personnel; our ability to benefit from our research and development activities; our dependence on international sales and internationally produced products; changes in accounting standards; and any resulting regulatory changes on our business. These and other factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and are discussed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our recent filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, under the caption "Risk Factors."
