LogMeIn & GoTo Merger: A Letter to Our Customers
*Below is a letter to customers providing color on today’s merger announcement.
I am excited to inform you that LogMeIn has today entered an agreement to merge Citrix’s GoTo family of products into LogMeIn. Together we’ll become one of the world’s top 10 SaaS companies – a market leader with over $1 billion in revenue, nearly 3,000 employees and more than two million customers in virtually every country across the globe. Perhaps more importantly, we believe that together we can better serve the needs of our customers, while expanding our reach and accelerating product innovation to bring you more choice, greater possibilities and better business outcomes.
In particular, we believe the GoTo and LogMeIn combination will be poised to disrupt and redefine the collaboration, engagement, identity and access management markets for our customers by:
- Combining the world’s best user experience with a seamless communications platform to transform the way people collaborate
- Enabling simple and secure access for people and businesses as they evolve to an app and cloud-centric world
- Empowering companies to reimagine customer engagement and support across all digital channels, devices, and media
It’s important to note that the proposed transaction is anticipated to close in the first quarter of 2017, and is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. Until the closing, GoTo and LogMeIn remain entirely separate entities, and will continue to provide support for their respective customers.
We truly appreciate your business and your loyalty, and we look forward to continue to work with you to create possibilities in the years ahead.
Bill Wagner, President & CEO, LogMeIn

All statements other than statements of historical fact contained in this report are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Forward-looking statements usually relate to future events and anticipated revenues, earnings, cash flows or other aspects of our operations or operating results. Forward-looking statements are often identified by the words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “intend,” “foresee,” “should,” “would,” “could,” “may,” “estimate,” “outlook” and similar expressions, including the negative thereof. The absence of these words, however, does not mean that the statements are not forward-looking. These forward-looking statements are based on the current expectations, beliefs and assumptions of the management of LMI, Citrix and GetGo concerning future developments, business conditions, the Company’s plans to issue dividends in connection with the transaction, and their potential effects. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting the parties will be those that the parties anticipate.
Among the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those described in the forward-looking statements are the following: (1) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement, (2) the risk that LMI’s stockholders may not approve the issuance of the Company common stock in connection with the proposed merger, (3) the risk that the necessary regulatory approvals may not be obtained or may be obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated, (4) risks that any of the closing conditions to the proposed merger, including Citrix’s distribution of the shares of GetGo, may not be satisfied in a timely manner, (5) risks related to disruption of management time from ongoing business operations due to the proposed transactions, (6) failure to realize the estimated synergies or growth from the proposed transactions or that such benefits may take longer to realize than expected, (7) risks related to unanticipated costs of integration of GetGo by LMI, (8) the effect of the announcement of the proposed transactions or the consummation of the proposed transactions on the ability of LMI and Citrix to retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with their key business partners and customers, and on their operating results and businesses generally, (9) the length of time necessary to consummate the proposed transactions, (10) adverse trends in economic conditions generally or in the industries in which the LMI and Citrix operate, (11) adverse changes to, or interruptions in, relationships with third parties unrelated to the announcement, (12) LMI’s ability to compete effectively and successfully and to add new products and services, (13) LMI’s ability to successfully manage and integrate acquisitions, (14) the ability to attract new customers and retain existing customers in the manner anticipated, (15) unanticipated changes relating to competitive factors in the parties’ industries, and (16) the business interruptions in connection with the LMI’s technology systems. Discussions of additional risks and uncertainties are contained in LMI’s, Citrix’s and GetGo’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). None of LMI, Citrix or GetGo is under any obligation, and each expressly disclaim any obligation, to update, alter, or otherwise revise any forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Persons reading this announcement are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date hereof.
