Sorenson Communications Emerges From Chapter 11 With Stronger Balance Sheet

Service and Operations Remain Unaffected

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Today, Sorenson Communications, Inc. emerged from a pre-packaged Chapter 11 process, commenced on March 3, 2014, in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. Reorganized Sorenson, with a strengthened balance sheet, will continue investing in its service platform and developing products to provide innovative communications technology to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. In addition, reorganized Sorenson now has the financial runway needed to work with the FCC on addressing the future regulatory framework for the industry.

Since its Chapter 11 filing on March 3, Sorenson's operations and services have continued uninterrupted, with no impact to customers, employees, interpreters and suppliers. All customer services have been maintained, all employee wage and benefit programs have continued and all suppliers have been paid in the ordinary course of business.

Scott Sorensen, chief financial officer of Sorenson Communications, Inc., noted, "Sorenson will continue to empower people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing by providing the industry's highest-quality communication products and services. Sorenson is dedicated to the promise of access to functionally-equivalent communication as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)."

Disclaimer
If you choose Sorenson as your default provider, you can port your existing 10-digit number to Sorenson from another provider or Sorenson can provide you with one for the geographic area where you live or work. If you later change your default provider, you can port your number to that provider. When selecting Sorenson, you must provide to Sorenson the physical address (i.e., the Registered Location) from which you are placing the call, so that Sorenson can properly route 911 calls you make. If you move or change your location, you must notify Sorenson immediately. You can update your Registered Location from your Sorenson videophone by calling 800-659-4810 or by visiting www.svrs.com/moving. Sorenson will confirm receipt of your Registered Location information. Emergency calls made via internet-based TRS may not function the same as traditional E911 service. For example, you may not be able to dial 911 if there is an internet-service failure or if you lose electrical power, and your 911 call may not be routed correctly if you have not updated your Registered Location. For more information on the process of obtaining 10-digit numbers and the limitations and risks associated with using Sorenson's VRS to place a 911 call, please visit Sorenson's website: www.sorenson.com/disclaimer.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
