The acquisition will also result in substantial efficiencies that will enable us to provide more affordable products to current and future customers. 

Following this announcement and until the transaction closes, business for customers and suppliers will continue to be conducted as usual, this will not alter current contractual relationships or current day-to-day operations in any way.  A dedicated team will be put in place to ensure a smooth transition for customers, suppliers, and employees.  The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
