Certain statements in this communication regarding the proposed merger and the business of the combined company including statements regarding the expected timetable for completing the merger, benefits of the transaction, statements regarding the combined company, its investment plans, policies and expected results and any other statements regarding the Company’s, MAST’s, Great Elm’s and the combined company’s expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, financial conditions, assumptions or future events or performance that are not historical facts are “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements are often, but not always, made through the use of words or phrases such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “should,” “planned,” “will,” “may,” “intend,” “estimated,” “aim,” “target,” “opportunity,” “tentative,” “positioning,” “designed,” “create,” “seek,” “would,” “could”, “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing,” “upside,” “increases,” and “potential,” and similar expressions. All such forward-looking statements involve estimates and assumptions that are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed in the statements. Among the key factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements are the following: the timing to consummate the proposed transactions; the risk that a condition to closing the proposed transactions may not be satisfied; the failure to receive, on a timely basis or otherwise, the required approvals by the Company and the Company’s stockholders, governmental or regulatory agencies and third parties; the combined company’s ability to achieve the synergies, recurring net investment income and value creation contemplated by the proposed transactions; uncertainty as to whether the combined company will be able to perform as well as funds managed by MAST; uncertainty as to the integration, prospects, distributions and investment performance of the combined company; the ability of each company to retain its senior executives and maintain relationships with business partners pending consummation of the merger; the impact of legislative, regulatory and competitive changes; and the diversion of management time on transaction-related issues. There can be no assurance that the merger will in fact be consummated. Additional information concerning these and other factors can be found in GECC’s registration statement and proxy/prospectus (when filed) as well as in the Company’s and Great Elm’s respective filings with the SEC, including Great Elm’s (filed as Unwired Planet’s) April 2016 proxy statement.
