L-1 Identity Solutions Files Form 10-Q with First Quarter 2011 Financial Results
STAMFORD, CT. — May 10, 2011 — L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: ID), a leading supplier of identity solutions and services, filed its Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) containing financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.
As previously disclosed, L-1 believes that the parties have made meaningful progress with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) in connection with the pending acquisition of L-1 by Safran SA. CFIUS informed L-1 on May 4, 2011 that it had accepted the refiled joint notification which provides additional time to negotiate the terms of a definitive mitigation agreement. This acceptance commenced a new 30-day review period scheduled to expire on June 2, 2011.
L-1 expects the parties to work diligently in an effort to finalize the agreement as quickly as practicable; however there can be no assurance that a definitive mitigation agreement will be executed. L-1 expects the closing of the acquisition to occur within 30-40 days from the May 4, 2011 acceptance by CFIUS of the refiling of the joint notification. The closing is subject to the timing and successful completion of the CFIUS process and assuming satisfaction or waiver of all other applicable conditions.
