Strategic Alternatives Review Process The Special Committee appointed by MakeMusic’s Board of Directors is continuing to evaluate strategic alternatives including, but not limited to, the July 15, 2012 proposal from its largest shareholder, LaunchEquity Partners, LLC, other potential strategic transactions to realize the long-term value of the Company, or continuing as an independent, public company with the Company’s current growth plans. In August 2012 the Special Committee retained Lazard Middle Market LLC to advise the Special Committee during its deliberations and assist it in determining the course of action that it believes is in the best interests of MakeMusic and its shareholders. No assurance can be given as to whether this process, which is ongoing, will result in a proposed transaction, whether any transaction that may be proposed as a result of such process would be acceptable to the Company, the Special Committee and the Board, or whether any such proposed transaction will be announced or consummated.
