VOLT SHAREHOLDERS ARE ADVISED TO READ THE SCHEDULE TO (INCLUDING THE OFFER TO PURCHASE, THE RELATED LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL AND THE OTHER OFFER DOCUMENTS) AND THE SCHEDULE 14D-9, AS EACH MAY BE AMENDED OR SUPPLEMENTED FROM TIME TO TIME, AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS FILED WITH THE SEC, BEFORE THEY MAKE ANY DECISION WITH RESPECT TO THE TENDER OFFER BECAUSE THESE MATERIALS CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROPOSED TRANSACTION AND THE PARTIES THERETO.

This document includes forward-looking statements which reflect management’s current views and estimates regarding the ability of the parties to complete the proposed transaction and the expected timing of completion of the proposed transaction, among other matters. The words “anticipate”, “assume”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “forecast”, “future”, “guidance”, “imply”, “intend”, “may”, “outlook”, “plan”, “potential”, “predict”, “project”, and similar terms and phrases are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Volt cannot assure investors that future developments affecting Volt will be those that it has anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to uncertainties related to the timing and expected financing of the tender offer and the Merger; uncertainty surrounding how many of Volt’s shareholders will tender their shares in the tender offer; the possibility that any or all of the various conditions to the consummation of the tender offer, including the failure to receive required regulatory approvals from any applicable governmental entities, may not be satisfied or waived in a timely manner, if at all; the possibility of business disruptions due to transaction-related uncertainty; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement; and other risks and uncertainties including those identified under the heading “Risk Factors” in Volt’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on January 13, 2022 and available at www.sec.gov, and other filings that Volt may make with the SEC in the future. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of the Volt’s assumptions prove incorrect, the Volt’s actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.
Any forward-looking statement made by Volt in this document speaks only as of the date hereof. Factors or events that could cause the Volt’s actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for Volt to predict all of them.
