How will the company be organized?
Further details on company organization will be announced subsequently. We are targeting completion of the transaction by year-end, subject to the approval of Equinix’s stockholders and the SEC and satisfaction or waiver of closing conditions.
What are the day-to-day changes I should expect in my dealings with Equinix, i-STT and Pihana?
In the short term operations will run business as usual for all three companies. Over the long-term, we expect to bring additional service and value to customers through our expanded global reach and service set.
Will there be any interruptions to my services as a result of this transition?
No. We expect this transition to be seamless to your operations.
Whom do I call for support?
Please continue to contact your existing support representatives.
Whom do I call to order new services for any of the 14 IBXs?
Until the close of the transaction, your sales representative can assist with any needs you may have in the U.S. and Asia-Pacific and refer you to the appropriate contacts at each respective company to handle your requirements.

Will all existing Equinix, Pihana and i-STT services continue to be supported post-merger?
Yes, we currently plan to support all existing services.
In addition, the company features network-neutrality in all locations, providing customers with the best choice of networks for the greatest operational flexibility, performance, and cost-efficiencies. The new Equinix will continue to offer customers a choice of services providers in all locations.
Will any new services be offered as a result of the merger?
Yes. Equinix will be able to provide customers of all three companies with a variety of Internet exchange and IT infrastructure services in additional locations in the US and Asia-Pacific, giving customers a single source—one vendor, one bill, consistent quality—solution.
Why is this merger good for me, the customer?
The mergers leverage clear synergies between the businesses and create the largest global network neutral Internet exchange services company. Here is why this is important to customers:
Immediate extended reach:    Leveraging the established infrastructure of all three companies gives customers immediate access to additional key business markets and new services.
One-stop Internet infrastructure services:    Our extended geographic reach encompassing 14 Internet exchange (IBX) centers in six countries will provide customers with a single source—one vendor, one bill, consistent quality—solution for your Internet exchange and IT infrastructure services requirements in two major regions.
Stable financial base:    This agreement results in a financially strengthened business with a healthy balance sheet for future business growth and a larger revenue base with the potential for strong EBITDA growth. With the completion of this deal, the new Equinix will be well positioned to continue to execute on the strengths of each of the businesses, build a profitable company, and most importantly, continue to provide superior services and support to our customers.
