Each Stockholder who held Burst Shares on Completion will receive a Letter of Transmittal, which will contain specific instructions with regards the exchange of their Burst Share certificates for the consideration due to them. Settlement of the consideration due pursuant to the Merger Agreement cannot take place until the return of the completed and signed documentation.

On Completion, Jarvis Coffin, Brian Emsell, Felice Kincannon, Jim Garrity, David Hanger, Steve Hill, David Stein and Tim Trotter all resigned as members of the Burst Board with immediate effect. Immediately following Completion, Suranga Chandratillake and Jonathan Spira were appointed to the Burst Board.

Cancellation of the admission to trading on AIM of the Burst Shares will become effective at 7.00 a.m. (BST) on 12 May 2011.
