"We are delighted Inter-Tel shareholders have voted to approve the merger with Mitel.  By bringing together the unique strengths of each company, this transaction will accelerate our growth strategy,” said Don Smith, CEO of Mitel.  "Together, we believe that Mitel and Inter-Tel will possess the intellectual property, technology depth, breadth of portfolio, managed services, partnerships, and people to be a leader in the rapidly changing IP telephony landscape.”
