Dear Fellow Stockholder,
We appreciate the feedback we have been receiving from many of you regarding Emulex's value creation strategy and the broad support for the Board's unanimous recommendation to reject Broadcom Corporation's unsolicited tender offer of $9.25 per share. We are pleased to hear from the stockholders we have spoken with that you agree that Broadcom's offer significantly undervalues Emulex and that it is an opportunistic attempt to capture significant value that rightly belongs to all of you. We continue to strongly urge you to NOT tender your shares into Broadcom's tender offer.
In addition to its grossly inadequate tender offer, Broadcom's hostile takeover attempt also consists of a consent solicitation that aims to ultimately remove Emulex's entire Board and appoint in its place nominees hand-picked by Broadcom. We believe these nominees, if elected, will pursue Broadcom's self serving agenda of acquiring Emulex on-the-cheap to the detriment of Emulex's stockholders. Please understand that providing your consent to Broadcom will increase Broadcom's leverage and provide no benefit to you. We therefore continue to strongly urge you NOT to consent to their solicitation.
