that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release, including but not limited to: our failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the transaction, including as a result of our ability to integrate the businesses of Marvell and Inphi Corporation or due to unexpected costs, liabilities or delays related to such integration; our ability to retain and hire key personnel; potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the completion of the transaction; risks associated with third party contracts containing consent and/or other provisions that may be triggered by the transaction; the impact of public health crises, such as pandemics (including coronavirus (COVID-19)) and any related company or government policies and actions intended to protect the health and safety of individuals or government policies or actions intended to maintain the functioning of national or global economies and markets; legislative, regulatory and economic developments affecting our business; general economic and market developments and conditions including disruptions in our supply chain or in the supply chains of our customers or suppliers; the evolving legal, regulatory and tax regimes under which we operate; unpredictability and severity of catastrophic events, including, but not limited to, acts of terrorism or outbreak of war or hostilities, as well as our response to any of the aforementioned factors. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors as well as other risks associated with the transaction and the combined company as described in the “Risk Factors” section of the joint proxy statement/prospectus filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the transaction, and risks and uncertainties that affect our business as described in the “Risk Factors” section of Marvell’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and other documents filed by MTI from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.
