Throughout the course of our exhaustive review, we engaged in meaningful strategic dialog with a significant number of potential counterparties. Ultimately, the board unanimously determined that an all-cash transaction with Revolution is in the best interests of our shareholders and the Company and will deliver the strongest economic value relative to the comprehensive range of alternatives we examined.”
