Therefore, there are or will be important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. We believe that the factors that may affect our business, future operating results, and financial condition include, but are not limited to, the following: the inability to complete the merger due to the failure to obtain stockholder approval for the merger or the failure to satisfy other conditions to completion of the merger, including the receipt of all regulatory approvals related to the merger; uncertainties as to the timing of the consummation of the merger and the ability of each party to consummate the merger; risks that the proposed merger disrupts our current plans and operations, including our ability to retain and hire key personnel; competitive responses to the proposed merger; unexpected costs, charges, or expenses resulting from the merger; the outcome of any legal proceedings that could be instituted against us or our directors related to the merger agreement; potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the merger; and legislative, regulatory and economic developments; any faltering or uncertainty in global economic conditions; the highly cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry; intense competition in the semiconductor industry; unsuccessful product development or failure to obtain market acceptance of our products; downturns in the end markets we serve; failure to make or deliver products in a timely manner; unavailability of raw materials, services, supplies, or manufacturing capacity; delays in production or in implementing new production techniques, product defects, or unreliability of products; and adverse results in litigation matters. These risks, as well as other risks associated with the proposed merger, are more fully discussed in the definitive proxy statement that is included in the Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in connection with the proposed merger on October 31, 2016 and the other documents that we have filed or may filed from time-to-time with the SEC.  These forward-looking statements are made only as of the date of this communication and Intersil undertakes no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements.
