Subject: Yankee Group update

Hi Carter,

I’ve appreciated our open dialogue over the past few months, and I wanted to update you on some company news at Yankee Group.

Emily Green just posted a blog at http://blogs.yankeegroup.com/author/egreen/ which highlights that given a reduced outlook for our growth this year, we have released a small number of YG staff, including two analysts, Daniel Taylor and Jonathan Edwards.

Our 100% focus on transformations in connectivity, our choice of research categories and our commitment to our 2009 Research Agenda are all unchanged.

We’re in the process of notifying our clients of today’s news.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
