EXPLANATORY NOTE

Emersub CX, Inc. (“Newco”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerson Electric Co. (“Emerson”), is a Delaware corporation that was formed on October 8, 2021 by EMR Worldwide Inc. (“Emerson Sub”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerson, for the purpose of engaging in the Transactions. Following the completion of the Transactions discussed herein, Newco (thereafter being referred to as New AspenTech) will be a holding company whose principal asset will be the ownership of Aspen Technology, Inc. (“AspenTech”) and Emerson’s industrial software business, Open Systems International, Inc. and its Geological Simulation Software business. Immediately after the completion of the Transactions, New AspenTech’s equity capital will consist solely of the New AspenTech common stock issued pursuant to the Transactions.

This Form 10-Q is reporting the shell company results for Newco for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022. Since the date of its incorporation, Newco has not engaged in any activities other than as contemplated by the Transaction Agreement and other related agreements.

A special meeting of Aspen Technology, Inc. stockholders will be held on May 16, 2022 for the following purposes:


1.
To consider and vote on a proposal to adopt the Transaction Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated October 10, 2021, as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated as of March 23, 2022 and Amendment No. 2, dated as of May 3, 2022 (as it may be further amended from time to time, the “Transaction Agreement”), among AspenTech, Emerson, Emerson Sub, Newco and Emersub CXI, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Newco (“Merger Sub”), and approve the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement, including the merger of Merger Sub with and into AspenTech (collectively, the “Transactions”);


2.
To consider and vote on a proposal to approve, on a non-binding, advisory basis, the compensation that will or may become payable to AspenTech’s named executive officers in connection with the Transactions;


3.
To consider and vote on a proposal to approve the adjournment of the special meeting if AspenTech determines that it is necessary or advisable to permit further solicitation of proxies in the event there are not sufficient votes at the time of the special meeting to adopt the Transaction Agreement; and


4.
To transact any other business properly brought before the special meeting and any adjournment or postponement thereof, in each case, by or at the direction of the AspenTech board of directors. Only stockholders of record on the books of AspenTech at the close of business on April 14, 2022, will be entitled to vote at the special meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof.

At the closing of the Transactions (the “Closing”), Newco will change its registered name with the Secretary of State of Delaware to “Aspen Technology, Inc.” (and thereafter referred to as “New AspenTech”). Immediately following the Closing, Emerson will beneficially own 55% of the outstanding shares of New AspenTech common stock (on a fully diluted basis) and former AspenTech stockholders will own the remaining outstanding shares of New AspenTech common stock. Following the Closing, AspenTech common stock will be delisted from NASDAQ and deregistered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and cease to be publicly traded.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
Emersub CX, Inc.

(1)  ORGANIZATION, BASIS OF PRESENTATION, BUSINESS DESCRIPTION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

On October 10, 2021, Aspen Technology, Inc. ("AspenTech") and Emerson Electric Co. (“Emerson”) entered into a Transaction Agreement and Plan of Merger, as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated as of March 23, 2022, and Amendment No. 2, dated as of May 3, 2022 (as it may be further amended from time to time, the “Transaction Agreement”) to combine two of Emerson’s industrial software businesses, Open Systems International, Inc. and its Geological Simulation Software business (the “Emerson Industrial Software Business”), and AspenTech under a new publicly traded company.

The Transaction Agreement provides for (i) Emerson contributing $6,014,000,000 in cash to Emersub CX, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerson (“Newco” or "the Company"), in exchange for Newco common stock, (ii) EMR Worldwide Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerson (“Emerson Sub”), contributing the Emerson Industrial Software Business, to Newco in exchange for Newco common stock, (iii) the merger of Emersub CXI, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Newco (“Merger Sub”), with and into AspenTech, with AspenTech being the surviving corporation and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Newco (the “Merger”) and (iv) as a result of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of AspenTech common stock (subject to certain exceptions) converting into the right to receive both 0.42 shares of Newco common stock and a per share cash consideration, calculated by dividing $6,014,000,000 by the number of outstanding shares of AspenTech common stock as of the closing of the transaction (the “Closing”) on a fully diluted basis (the foregoing and the other transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement collectively, the “Transactions”).

This Form 10-Q is reporting the shell company results for Newco for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022. Since the date of its incorporation, Newco has not engaged in any activities other than as contemplated by the Transaction Agreement and related agreements (the “Transaction Documents”).

A special meeting of Aspen Technology, Inc. stockholders will be held on May 16, 2022 for the following purposes:


1.
To consider and vote on a proposal to adopt the Transaction Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated October 10, 2021, as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated as of March 23, 2022, and as amended by Amendment No. 2, dated as of May 3, 2022 among AspenTech, Emerson, Emerson Sub, Newco and Emersub CXI, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Newco, and approve the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement, including the merger of Merger Sub with and into AspenTech;


2.
To consider and vote on a proposal to approve, on a non-binding, advisory basis, the compensation that will or may become payable to AspenTech’s named executive officers in connection with the Transactions;


3.
To consider and vote on a proposal to approve the adjournment of the special meeting if AspenTech determines that it is necessary or advisable to permit further solicitation of proxies in the event there are not sufficient votes at the time of the special meeting to adopt the Transaction Agreement; and


4.
To transact any other business properly brought before the special meeting and any adjournment or postponement thereof, in each case, by or at the direction of the AspenTech board of directors. Only stockholders of record on the books of AspenTech at the close of business on April 14, 2022, will be entitled to vote at the special meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof.

6

Upon the Closing of the Transactions, the Emerson Industrial Software Business will be considered to be the "acquirer" for accounting purposes and AspenTech will be treated as the "acquired" company. For further information regarding the parties to the Transactions and the details of the Transactions, see Note 2.

Events subsequent to March 31, 2022, including the completion of the Transactions, are not reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Newco have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S." and such principles, "U.S. GAAP") and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for interim financial information. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, financial position and cash flows of Newco for the periods presented and are not indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year.

At the Closing, Newco will change its registered name with the Secretary of State of Delaware to “Aspen Technology, Inc.” (and thereafter referred to as “New AspenTech”). Immediately following the Closing, Emerson will beneficially own 55% of the outstanding shares of New AspenTech common stock (on a fully diluted basis) and former AspenTech stockholders will own the remaining outstanding shares of New AspenTech common stock. Following the Closing, AspenTech common stock will be delisted from NASDAQ and deregistered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and cease to be publicly traded. New AspenTech and its subsidiaries will operate under AspenTech’s current name “Aspen Technology, Inc.” and New AspenTech common stock will be traded on NASDAQ under AspenTech’s current stock ticker symbol “AZPN”.

Item 2.

Emersub CX, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerson (“Newco”), is a Delaware corporation that was formed for the purpose of engaging in the Transactions. Since the date of its incorporation, Newco has not engaged in any activities other than as contemplated by the Transaction Agreement and other related agreements.

Additional information about Newco is included in the documents incorporated by reference into this report.
 
Forward-Looking Statements
 
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking” statements as that term is defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Securities Exchange Act”), including statements regarding the proposed Transactions among Emerson, Newco and AspenTech. All statements, other than historical facts, are forward-looking statements, including: statements regarding the expected timing and structure of the proposed Transactions; the ability of the parties to complete the proposed Transactions considering the various closing conditions; the expected benefits of the proposed Transactions, such as improved operations, enhanced revenues and cash flow, synergies, growth potential, market profile, business plans, expanded portfolio and financial strength; the competitive ability and position of New AspenTech following completion of the proposed Transactions; the projected future financial performance of the Emerson Industrial Software Business, AspenTech and New AspenTech; legal, economic and regulatory conditions; and any assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. Forward-looking statements concern future circumstances and results and other statements that are not historical facts and are sometimes identified by the words “may,” “will,” “should,” “potential,” “intend,” “expect,” “endeavor,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “overestimate,” “underestimate,” “believe,” “plan,” “could,” “would,” “project,” “predict,” “continue,” “target” or other similar words or expressions or negatives of these words, but not all forward-looking statements include such identifying words. Forward-looking statements are based upon current plans, estimates and expectations that are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements. We can give no assurance that such plans, estimates or expectations will be achieved and therefore, actual results may differ materially from any plans, estimates or expectations in such forward-looking statements.

9

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such plans, estimates or expectations include, among others: (1) that one or more closing conditions to the transaction, including certain regulatory approvals, may not be satisfied or waived, on a timely basis or otherwise, including that a governmental entity may prohibit, delay or refuse to grant approval for the consummation of the proposed transaction, may require conditions, limitations or restrictions in connection with such approvals or that the required approval by the stockholders of AspenTech may not be obtained; (2) the risk that the proposed transaction may not be completed in the time frame expected by Emerson, AspenTech or Newco, or at all; (3) unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the proposed transaction; (4) uncertainty of the expected financial performance of New AspenTech following completion of the proposed transaction; (5) failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction, including as a result of delay in completing the proposed transaction or integrating the Emerson Industrial Software Business of Emerson with the business of AspenTech; (6) the ability of New AspenTech to implement its business strategy; (7) difficulties and delays in achieving revenue and cost synergies of New AspenTech; (8) inability to retain and hire key personnel; (9) the occurrence of any event that could give rise to termination of the proposed transaction; (10) potential litigation in connection with the proposed transaction or other settlements or investigations that may affect the timing or occurrence of the contemplated transaction or result in significant costs of defense, indemnification and liability; (11) evolving legal, regulatory and tax regimes; (12) changes in economic, financial, political and regulatory conditions, in the United States and elsewhere, and other factors that contribute to uncertainty and volatility, natural and man-made disasters, civil unrest, pandemics (e.g., the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic (the “COVID-19 pandemic”)), geopolitical uncertainty, and conditions that may result from legislative, regulatory, trade and policy changes associated with the current or subsequent U.S. administration; (13) the ability of Emerson, AspenTech and Newco to successfully recover from a disaster or other business continuity problem due to a hurricane, flood, earthquake, terrorist attack, war, pandemic, security breach, cyber-attack, power loss, telecommunications failure or other natural or man-made event, including the ability to function remotely during long-term disruptions such as the COVID-19 pandemic; (14) the impact of public health crises, such as pandemics (including the COVID-19 pandemic) and epidemics and any related company or governmental policies and actions to protect the health and safety of individuals or governmental policies or actions to maintain the functioning of national or global economies and markets, including any quarantine, “shelter in place,” “stay at home,” workforce reduction, social distancing, shut down or similar actions and policies; (15) actions by third parties, including government agencies; (16) potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the transaction; (17) the risk that disruptions from the proposed transaction will harm Emerson’s and AspenTech’s business, including current plans and operations; (18) certain restrictions during the pendency of the acquisition that may impact Emerson’s or AspenTech’s ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions; (19) Emerson’s, AspenTech’s and New AspenTech’s ability to meet expectations regarding the accounting and tax treatments of the proposed transaction; and (20) other risk factors as detailed from time to time in Emerson’s and AspenTech’s reports filed with the SEC, including Emerson’s and AspenTech’s annual report on Form 10-K, periodic quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, periodic current reports on Form 8-K and other documents filed with the SEC.  While the list of factors presented here is considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements.

Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Newco does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or developments, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risks

During the period covered by this report, Newco did not conduct any activities other than those incidental to its formation and matters contemplated by the Transaction Agreement, and therefore did not incur any significant interest rate risk, liquidity risk, credit risk, foreign currency exchange rate risk or other relevant market risks.

10

Item 4. Controls and Procedures 

Our management, with the participation of our President and Vice President & Treasurer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, the President and Vice President & Treasurer have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report, our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.

There has been no change in our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
