Riverbed Technology Comments on Elliott Management’s 13D Filing

November 08, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2013-- Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the application performance company, issued the following statement in response to Elliott Management’s 13D filing with the SEC today:

“Riverbed is focused on creating value for all of our shareholders, and maintains an open dialogue with our shareholders, including Elliott.

“Riverbed is pursuing a considered strategy for growth by establishing itself as the leading multi-product platform delivering a complete solution for application and network performance across platforms, locations and devices. Last week we reported, on a non-GAAP basis, third quarter results reflecting 21% year-over-year revenue growth, a nearly 200 basis point sequential improvement in operating margins, and an 18% sequential increase in net income. These results demonstrate strong execution and solid expense management in a mixed economic and weak federal spending environment. We have a strong track record of returning capital to shareholders, including our recent announcement of a $75 million accelerated share repurchase as a part of our current $500 million share repurchase program. Over the last eight quarters, Riverbed has returned approximately 70% of free cash flow to investors in the form of share repurchases. We look forward to meeting with investors and further discussing our strategy at our upcoming analyst day on November 18.”
