On May 24, 2016, Limelight Networks, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release that contains certain forward looking statements. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 herewith.

Forward-Looking Statement Disclaimer

The Company includes in this Current Report “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. A reader can identify forward-looking statements because they are not limited to historical fact. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that may change at any time and may cause actual results to differ materially from those that the Company expected. Many of these statements are derived from the Company’s operating budgets and forecasts, which are based on many detailed assumptions that the Company believes are reasonable, or are based on various assumptions about certain plans, activities or events which the Company expects will or may occur in the future. However, it is very difficult to predict the effect of known factors, and the Company cannot anticipate all factors that could affect actual results that may be important to an investor. All forward-looking information should be evaluated in the context of these risks, uncertainties and other factors, including those factors disclosed in this Current Report and those factors disclosed under “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 11, 2016 and in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on April 18, 2016. The Company undertakes no obligation to revise or publicly release the results of any revision to these forward-looking statements, except as required by law. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.

Leading Content Delivery Network (CDN) Chosen for Global Footprint and Scale
Tempe, AZ, May 24, 2016 - Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced they will be powering Neustar’s industry leading DDoS mitigation network.

This announcement gives us greater confidence in our ability to meet or exceed analysts’ expectations for the quarter and the full year.”

We selected Limelight based on their impressive global infrastructure, technology and people. The relationship demonstrates our joint commitment to securely manage, distribute and protect digital content distribution around the world,” said Lisa Hook, chief executive officer at Neustar.
