SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco Systems, Inc. (NasdaqGS:CSCO - News) today announced that it is extending its previously announced tender offer for all outstanding shares of WebEx Communications, Inc. (NasdaqGS:WEBX - News) until 12:00 Midnight, New York City time, on Monday, May 21, 2007 (which is the end of the day on May 21, 2007). The tender offer is being extended because certain foreign regulatory approvals necessary for the consummation of the tender offer are not expected to have been received by the previously scheduled expiration date of Monday, May 7, 2007. Cisco expects to complete its tender offer in the first half of the fourth quarter of Cisco's fiscal year 2007.
