Forward Looking Statements
This website and its contents contain forward-looking statements, which address a variety of subjects relating the acquisition of Linear Technology Corporation (“Linear Technology”) by Analog Devices, Inc. ("Analog Devices"), including the effect of the transaction on Analog Devices' revenues, non-GAAP earnings, free cash flow, capital returns, the expected benefits, synergies and growth prospects of the combined companies, Analog Devices' expected product offerings, product development, marketing position and technical advances resulting from the transaction and Analog Devices' timing and ability to repay the debt. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about our beliefs, plans and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on our current expectations and are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. The following important factors and uncertainties, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements: higher than expected or unexpected costs, delays or challenges associated with or relating to the transaction and the integration of the acquired business; the risk that expected benefits, synergies and growth prospects of the transaction may not be achieved in a timely manner or at all; the risk that Linear Technology's business may not be successfully integrated with Analog Devices' following the closing; the risk that Analog Devices will be unable to retain and hire key personnel; the risk that disruption from the transaction may adversely affect Analog Devices' business and relationships with our customers, suppliers or employees; and the significant indebtedness incurred by Analog Devices in connection with the acquisition and the need to generate sufficient cash flows to service and repay such debt. For additional information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, please refer to Analog Devices' filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the risk factors contained in our most recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Annual Report on Form 10-K. Forward-looking statements represent management's current expectations and are inherently uncertain. Except as required by law, we do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements made by us to reflect subsequent events or circumstances.
