We expect existing supplier contracts to remain in force until their respective expiration dates. If business reasons require us to make any changes, we will reach out individually and discuss.

While we are evaluating opportunities for synergy across several vectors, there are currently no plans for changes to existing contracts immediately after the acquisition closes. If there are changes in the future, we will communicate them in a timely manner.

Please continue to work with your current point of contact. If there are any changes, we will communicate those to you.

As we work toward post-acquisition integration, we may look at changes to align the procurement processes, however, we aim to keep disruptions to a minimum. Changes required will be proactively communicated to you, so please keep your contact information up to date. Until notified otherwise, please continue engaging in the procurement processes you are using.

The acquisition brings together two established leaders with complementary capabilities in AI, security, networking, and observability. This combination will accelerate Cisco's strategy to securely connect everything to make anything possible. We will work closely with our suppliers to manage any changes in supply and demand.

We will make changes to procurement specifications if the business needs justify doing so. We remain committed to always maintaining the highest quality standards.

This acquisition brings together two powerful innovation engines and creates one of the largest software companies globally.

Please continue with your current point of contact until communicated otherwise.
