    difficulties in the integration of operations and systems;

    challenges in attracting and retaining key personnel.

Many of these factors will be outside of our control and any one of them could result in increased costs, decreases in the amount of expected revenues and diversion of management’s time and energy, which could materially impact the business, financial condition and results of operations of Holdco. In addition, the risks relating to the businesses of Valtech and the combined company are similar to the risks relating to HeartWare’s business, including but not limited to, risks relating to intellectual property, competition, regulatory matters, future growth and the medical device industry. Even if the operations of the businesses of HeartWare and Valtech are integrated successfully, we may not realize the full benefits of the Transactions, including the synergies or sales or growth opportunities that we expect. These benefits may not be achieved within the anticipated time frame, or at all. Or, additional unanticipated costs may be incurred in the integration of the businesses of HeartWare and Valtech. All of these factors could cause dilution to the earnings per share of Holdco, decrease or delay the expected accretive effect of the Transactions, and negatively impact the price of Holdco’s ordinary shares. As a result, we cannot assure you that the combination of the HeartWare and Valtech businesses will result in the realization of the full benefits anticipated from the Transactions.

Holdco will incur direct and indirect costs as a result of the Transactions.

Holdco will incur costs and expenses in connection with and as a result of the Transactions. These costs and expenses include costs related to expanded research and development expenditure, market development activities, creation of a field sales force, and greater scaling of manufacturing capacity, as well as any additional costs Holdco may incur going forward as a result of its new corporate structure. These costs may exceed the costs historically borne by HeartWare and Valtech.

HeartWare’s and Valtech’s actual financial positions and results of operations may differ materially from the unaudited pro forma financial data included in this proxy statement/prospectus.

The pro forma financial information contained in this proxy statement/prospectus is presented for illustrative purposes only and may not be an indication of what Holdco’s financial position or results of operations would have been had the Transactions been completed on the dates indicated. The pro forma financial information has been derived from the audited and unaudited historical financial statements of HeartWare and Valtech and certain adjustments and assumptions have been made regarding the combined company after giving effect to the Transactions. The assets and liabilities of Valtech have been measured at fair value based on various preliminary estimates using assumptions that HeartWare management believes are reasonable utilizing currently available information. The process for estimating the fair value of acquired assets and assumed liabilities requires the use of judgment in determining the appropriate assumptions and estimates. These estimates may be revised as additional information becomes available and as additional analyses are performed. Differences between preliminary estimates in the pro forma financial information and the final acquisition accounting will occur and could have a material impact on the pro forma financial information and the combined company’s financial position and future results of operations.

In addition, the assumptions used in preparing the pro forma financial information may not prove to be accurate, and other factors may affect Holdco’s financial condition or results of operations following Closing. Any potential decline in Holdco’s financial condition or results of operations may cause significant variations in the share price of Holdco.
