The following is a letter distributed by i-STT Pte Ltd to its customers on October 2, 2002:
Dear i-STT Customer,
I’d like to take a moment to update you on a significant development at i-STT.
Today, i-STT, through its parent, Singapore Technologies Telemedia (STT) announced an agreement to merge its operations into Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a US market-leader in core Internet exchange services. Pihana Pacific, a leading provider of managed e-infrastructure and neutral Internet Exchange data center services in Asia Pacific will also be merged into Equinix. The mergers will create the largest global network neutral Internet exchange services company, with great benefits to our customers.
The new company, which will operate under the Equinix brand, will leverage the established infrastructure of all three companies, giving customers access to comprehensive network exchange and managed IT infrastructure services internationally, including access to more than 100 network service providers within carrier-neutral facilities. The synergy resulting from these mergers will enable us to focus on delivering extensive global e-business infrastructure with seamless service availability, consistent quality, and a broad range of service offerings.
This merger highlights the new company’s commitment to be the leading provider of network-neutral Internet exchange services in Asia Pacific and the United States. As part of Equinix, our geographic reach will extend to six countries, and 14 Internet exchange centres encompassing over a million square feet of carrier-neutral, Internet exchange and data center space. In addition, the mergers leverage on the strength of i-STT’s business and reaffirm our commitment to customers in realizing our vision of offering an extensive pan-Asian e-business infrastructure that is globally connected for seamless service delivery and quality.
As part of the transaction, Equinix will use cash investments from Singapore Technologies Telemedia Pte Ltd to retire a large part of its debt. With its investment of $30 million, Singapore Technologies Telemedia will become the largest strategic shareholder in the new company. As a result of these investments and mergers, Equinix will operate a financially strengthened business with a healthy balance sheet, cash balances for future growth, and a larger revenue base.

We are targeting to complete the transaction by the end of 2002. Meanwhile, i-STT will continue to operate business as usual. We plan to make this integration as seamless as possible for our customers and will provide additional details on the integration, services and support as we progress.
We sincerely hope that you are as excited as we are about this merger and we look forward to serving you even better in the future.We would be happy to answer questions that you may have regarding additional service availability in Asia Pacific or the U.S. Our commitment to your business success remains unwavering, and we look forward to continue delivering the superior value in services that you expect and deserve with the combined resources of the new Equinix.
We will be regularly updating our website to keep you informed about the merger progress. Do visit us at for additional information or contact your sales representative with any questions.
Thank you for your business.
