Dan Hesse, Masayoshi Son, and I also recently met with the FCC to discuss the pending transaction. As for next steps, we anticipate filing our definitive proxy in the coming weeks (the proxy is the document we provide to shareholders enabling them to make informed decisions about the pending transaction)."

We will keep you apprised of any new developments."
