Avaya Rings the NYSE Bell: A Historic Moment and a Heartfelt Thank You

Without question, the last 12 months have been among the most exciting, significant and challenging in Avaya history. Over the course of the last year, we kept our nose to the grindstone like never before in what stands as our boldest and most future-focused restructuring process yet. With the continued support of our incredible partners, customers, and employees, we’ve emerged stronger and more agile than ever with solutions designed for a new era of connectedness and engagement.

This growth is cemented by one of our most exciting milestones yet: the public trading of Avaya on the New York Stock Exchange.

On the momentous day, we’re thrilled to be in New York City—The City of Dreams—with many loyal customers and partners, and we’re also thankful for those celebrating with us worldwide. It’s the beginning of an exciting new chapter in which Avaya will be tirelessly working to create uncharted value for our customers, partners, and new shareholders.

None of this would be possible without our customers and partners, whose unwavering commitment we cannot be more thankful for. This restructuring process has enabled us to build stronger relationships with them and our employees, and we celebrate with the ringing of the bell together. As a publicly traded company, we strive to use this momentum for the utmost benefit of those we serve and collaborate with.

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating this significant moment. Far greater than this, however, are the people who made this ground-breaking day possible. Thank you for walking alongside us, and continuing to as we collectively move forward with strength and opportunity. We are stronger when we journey together.
