Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws with respect to the proposed transaction between Marvell and Aquantia, including statements regarding the benefits of the transaction and the anticipated timing of the transaction and the products and markets of each company. These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “strategy,” “future,” “opportunity,” “plan,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release, including but not limited to: (i) the risk that the transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, (ii) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, including the receipt of certain governmental and regulatory approvals, (iii) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement, (iv) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on Aquantia’s business relationships, operating results, and business generally, (v) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of Aquantia or Marvell and potential difficulties in Aquantia employee retention as a result of the transaction, (vi) risks related to diverting management’s attention from Aquantia’s ongoing business operations, (vii) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Marvell or against Aquantia related to the merger agreement or the transaction, (viii) the ability of Marvell to successfully integrate Aquantia’s operations and product lines, (ix) the ability of Marvell to implement its plans, forecasts, and other expectations with respect to Aquantia’s business after the completion of the proposed merger and realize the anticipated synergies and cost savings in the time frame anticipated or at all, (x) the risk of downturns in the highly cyclical semiconductor



industry, and (xi) our failure to achieve expected revenues and forecasted demand from customers. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties that affect the businesses of Marvell and Aquantia described in the “Risk Factors” section of their respective Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other documents filed by either of them from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and Marvell and Aquantia assume no obligation and do not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Neither Marvell nor Aquantia gives any assurance that either Marvell or Aquantia will achieve its expectations.
