COSTA MESA and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- Emulex
Corporation (NYSE: ELX), the leading provider of converged networking
solutions, and Endace Limited (LSE: EDA), a leading supplier of network
visibility infrastructure products, announced today that acceptances have been
received for 88 percent of the shares in Endace. Emulex has declared the Offer
unconditional as to the level of acceptances, and has made an extension of the
offer period by 14 days, to 1 p.m. London time on February 26, 2013 for the
remaining shareholders to submit their shares to accept the Offer. Emulex will
not further extend the offer period without declaring the Offer wholly

"With this announcement, we have taken one more significant step toward the
completion of the acquisition of Endace, and we look forward to welcoming the
Endace team and obtaining complete ownership of Endace," said Jim McCluney,
chief executive officer (CEO) of Emulex. "The acquisition of Endace doubles
our total addressable market and places Emulex in another high-margin,
high-growth market, enhancing our ability to deliver industry-leading
solutions to connect, monitor and manage high-performance networks."

Mike Riley, CEO of Endace, said, "We look forward to joining the Emulex team
and moving forward with the next step in our strategy to become the market
leader in network visibility solutions. The combined capabilities and
technical depth of Emulex and Endace will enable us to deliver true end-to-end
network management, expand our global reach and better support our customers."

By declaring the Offer unconditional as to the level of acceptances, Emulex
has waived the minimum acceptance condition, which had been stated in the
Offer to be holding or controlling 90 percent or more of the voting rights in

Emulex has made no commitment to purchase outstanding shares of Endace after
February 26, 2013, unless Emulex reaches ownership of 90 percent of the Endace
shares, in which case the New Zealand Takeovers Code (NZTC) includes a
requirement for Emulex to provide an acquisition notice stating either (a)
that remaining Endace shares must be sold to Emulex; or (b) that remaining
Endace shareholders may sell their remaining Endace shares to Emulex. The 88.4
percent of shares received by February 12, 2013 will be paid, should the Offer
be completed, at the offer price of GBP 5.00 per share, for a total of GBP
67,306,715, which is equal to USD 106,084,726 at the current exchange rate of
GBP 0.634 per USD. All of the Endace employee stock options will be purchased,
should the Offer be completed, for GBP 4,542,429, which is equal to USD
7,159,498 at the current exchange rate. If the remaining 11.6 percent of the
Endace shares are submitted by the February 26, 2013 offer period end date,
then an additional payment of GBP 8,793,625 will be made should the Offer be
completed, which is equal to USD 13,859,974 at the current exchange rate.

The Offer was made pursuant to the NZTC, since Endace is a New Zealand
company. The applicable NZTC rule allows, since Emulex declared the Offer
unconditional as to the level of acceptances, that Emulex provide a further
extension notice before the end of the offer period which had been set for 1
p.m. London time on February 12, 2013. The offer period has been varied to be
until 1 p.m. London time on February 26, 2013. The applicable NZTC rule
provides that the Offer must remain open for at least 14 days after a
variation notice has been sent, and the Offer will not be extended beyond this

A copy of Emulex's Offer, Endace's response (including the Endace Board
recommendation), and the Independent Adviser's report prepared by Grant Samuel
for Endace was sent to Endace shareholders and optionholders. Copies of those
documents are available from the Endace web site (www.endace.com), and from
the Emulex web site (www.emulex.com) through the Emulex Form 8-K filed on
December 21, 2012.

The Grant Samuel report concludes that if the listing of Endace shares on the
AIM is cancelled then "this will make trading of the remaining Endace shares
very difficult…[t]he closer the Emulex shareholding gets to 90% the lower the
liquidity of Endace shares will be" (page 29). The Grant Samuel report states
that "Emulex cannot acquire any further shares in Endace for a period of
twelve months [after the offer period expires] without making another formal
takeover Offer for all or some of the remaining shares in [Endace], or without
shareholder approval. However, from twelve months after the Emulex Offer
closes, Emulex will be able to utilise the 'creep' provisions of the Takeovers
Code to purchase up to a further 5% of Endace per annum." (page 30). However,
Emulex has made no commitment to purchase any additional Endace shares after
February 26, 2013.

"Safe Harbor" Statement
"Safe Harbor'' Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of
1995: With the exception of historical information, the statements set forth
above, including, without limitation, those relating to the proposed
acquisition of Endace, contain forward-looking statements that involve risk
and uncertainties. We expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to
release publicly any updates or changes to these forward-looking statements
that may be made to reflect any future events or circumstances. We wish to
caution readers that a number of important factors could cause actual results
to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These
factors include the possibility that the pending acquisition of Endace Limited
(Endace) is not completed on a timely basis or at all, the effects of the
pending acquisition of Endace, including our ability to realize the
anticipated benefits of the potential acquisition of Endace on a timely basis
or at all, and our ability to integrate the technology, operations and
personnel of Endace into our existing operations in a timely and efficient
manner. In addition, intellectual property claims, with or without merit,
that could result in costly litigation, cause product shipment delays, require
us to indemnify customers, or require us to enter into royalty or licensing
agreements, which may or may not be available. Furthermore, we have in the
past obtained, and may be required in the future to obtain, licenses of
technology owned by other parties. We cannot be certain that the necessary
licenses will be available or that they can be obtained on commercially
reasonable terms. If we were to fail to obtain such royalty or licensing
agreements in a timely manner and on reasonable terms, our business, results
of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected.
Ongoing lawsuits, such as the action brought by Broadcom Corporation
(Broadcom), present inherent risks, any of which could have a material adverse
effect on our business, financial condition, or results of operations. Such
potential risks include continuing expenses of litigation, risk of loss of
patent rights, risk of monetary damages, risk of injunction against the sale
of products incorporating the technology in question, counterclaims,
attorneys' fees, incremental costs associated with product or component
redesigns, and diversion of management's attention from other business
matters. With respect to the continuing Broadcom litigation, such potential
risks also include the adequacy of any sunset period to make design changes,
the ability to implement any design changes, the availability of customer
resources to complete any re-qualification or re-testing that may be needed,
the ability to maintain favorable working relationships with Emulex suppliers
of serializer/deserializer (SerDes) modules, and the ability to obtain a
settlement which does not put us at a competitive disadvantage. In addition,
the fact that the economy generally, and the technology and storage market
segments specifically, have been in a state of uncertainty makes it difficult
to determine if past experience is a good guide to the future and makes it
impossible to determine if markets will grow or shrink in the short term.
Continued weakness in domestic and worldwide macro-economic conditions and
disruptions in world credit and equity markets and the resulting economic
uncertainty for our customers, as well as the storage and converged networking
market as a whole, has and could continue to adversely affect our revenues and
results of operations. As a result of these uncertainties, we are unable to
predict our future results with any accuracy. Other factors affecting these
forward-looking statements include but are not limited to the following:
faster than anticipated declines in the storage networking market, slower than
expected growth of the converged networking market or the failure of our
Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers to successfully incorporate
our products into their systems; our dependence on a limited number of
customers and the effects of the loss of, decrease in or delays of orders by
any such customers, or the failure of such customers to make timely payments;
the emergence of new or stronger competitors as a result of consolidation
movements in the market; the timing and market acceptance of our products or
our OEM customers' new or enhanced products; costs associated with entry into
new areas of the server and storage technology markets; the variability in the
level of our backlog and the variable and seasonal procurement patterns of our
customers; any inadequacy of our intellectual property protection and the
costs of actual or potential third-party claims of infringement and any
related indemnity obligations or adverse judgments; the effect of any actual
or potential unsolicited offers to acquire us; proxy fights or the actions of
activist stockholders; impairment charges, including but not limited to
goodwill and intangible assets; changes in tax rates or legislation; the
effects of acquisitions; the effects of terrorist activities, natural
disasters, and any resulting disruption in our supply chain or customer
purchasing patterns or any other resulting economic or political instability;
the highly competitive nature of the markets for our products as well as
pricing pressures that may result from such competitive conditions; the
effects of changes in our business model to separately charge for software;
the effect of rapid migration of customers towards newer, lower cost product
platforms; possible transitions from board or box level to application
specific integrated circuit (ASIC) solutions for selected applications; a
shift in unit product mix from higher-end to lower-end or mezzanine card
products; a faster than anticipated decrease in the average unit selling
prices or an increase in the manufactured cost of our products; delays in
product development; our reliance on third-party suppliers and subcontractors
for components and assembly; our ability to attract and retain key technical
personnel; our ability to benefit from our research and development
activities; our dependence on international sales and internationally produced
products; changes in accounting standards; and any resulting regulatory
changes on our business. These and other factors could cause actual results to
differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and are
discussed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission,
including our recent filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, under the caption "Risk
