RadiSys Closes Continuous Buy

HILLSBORO, Ore. -- RadiSys Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS - News), a leading provider of innovative hardware and software platforms for next generation IP-based wireless, wireline and video networks, announced today that it closed the acquisition of Continuous Computing Corporation. The Company previously announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Continuous Computing on May 3, 2011. Continuous Computing, now a wholly-owned subsidiary of RadiSys, develops communications systems consisting of highly integrated ATCA platforms and Trillium protocol software coupled with software Professional Services to complement their full solution offering. Their key customer applications include 3G and 4G Wireless infrastructure, Small Cell base stations, Traffic Management, Internet Offload and Network Security.

The Company believes the acquisition transforms RadiSys into a larger global market leader in embedded hardware and software for communications networks with unmatched scope, scale and expertise. The acquisition is expected to accelerate the Company’s strategy to deliver more differentiated platforms and solutions. Continuous Computing also brings expansion into high growth markets with many new customers, creating meaningful customer diversification. The acquisition benefits both Companies’ customers with a broader set of technologies and solutions including a combined set of ATCA platforms that are now developed and supported by a global team with greater scale and capability.

Consideration for the acquisition is comprised of approximately $73 million in cash, funded with cash on hand, and 3,665,460 shares of RadiSys common stock. In addition to the consideration payable at closing, RadiSys will make earn-out payments based on revenues generated by a specified set of Trillium products over a three year period following the closing of the acquisition. In lieu of the earn-out payments, RadiSys has the right to make a one-time payment of cash and/or RadiSys shares with a combined aggregate value of $15 million up to 18 months after the closing date.
