Pursuant to Rule 13d-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, this Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 7, 2022 (the “Original 13D” and, together with this Amendment, the “Schedule 13D”). Capitalized terms used in this Amendment but not otherwise defined herein have the meanings set forth in the Original 13D. This Amendment is being filed jointly, pursuant to a joint filing agreement included as Exhibit 1.04 to the Original 13D, by Ipsen, Parent, Biopharmaceuticals and Purchaser.

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

Item 3 of the Original 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

“On August 12, 2022, Ipsen consummated the acquisition of the Issuer through the Merger. The aggregate consideration payable in connection with the Offer Shares (as defined in the Original 13D) upon the consummation of the Offer (as defined in the Original 13D) and the Merger was approximately $244.6 million, which was funded from cash on hand of Ipsen.

The information set forth or incorporated by reference in Item 4 is incorporated by reference in this Item 3.”

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Original 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by deleting the last paragraph of Item 4 and replacing it with the following paragraphs:

“Purchaser commenced the Offer on July 12, 2022. In connection with the Offer, also on July 12, 2022, Ipsen filed a tender offer statement on Schedule TO with the SEC, and the Issuer filed a solicitation/recommendation statement on Schedule 14D-9 with respect to the Offer. As of 11:59 PM, New York time, on August 11, 2022, when the Offer expired, approximately 124,185,125 Offer Shares were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer, excluding 9,299,176 Offer Shares tendered pursuant to guaranteed delivery procedures. On August 12, 2022, Purchaser accepted for payment, and expects to as soon as practicable pay for, all Offer Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer.

On August 12, 2022, Purchaser merged with and into the Issuer pursuant to Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and without any stockholder vote, with the Issuer surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Ipsen, pursuant to the Merger Agreement. At the Effective Time, each Offer Share outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than (a) Offer Shares owned by Ipsen, Parent, Biopharmaceuticals, Purchaser, the Issuer, or by any of their direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries, in each case at the commencement of the Offer and immediately prior to the Effective Time, (b) Offer Shares irrevocably accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer or (c) Offer Shares owned by any stockholders who properly and validly demanded their appraisal rights in compliance with Section 262 of the DGCL) was automatically converted into the right to receive the Offer Price, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.


Page 7 of 10

 

Effective as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, (i) each outstanding Issuer stock option was automatically canceled and converted into the right to receive an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the product of (A) the number of Shares underlying such option immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by (B) the amount, if any, by which the Offer Price exceeds the exercise price per share of such option, and (ii) each outstanding Issuer restricted stock unit (“RSU”) became fully vested (to the extent unvested) and was automatically converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the product of (A) the number of Offer Shares underlying such RSU immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by (B) the Offer Price, without interest and subject to any deduction for any withholding taxes.

At the Effective Time, the certificate of incorporation of the Issuer was amended and restated in its entirety pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement. As of the Effective Time, the bylaws of the Issuer were amended and restated in its entirety to be in the form of the bylaws of Purchaser, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, subject to certain amendments specified in the Merger Agreement.

At the Effective Time, and as a result of the Merger, each outstanding share of capital stock of Purchaser issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time was converted into shares of newly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock of the Surviving Corporation. Consequently, following the consummation of the Merger on August 12, 2022, Ipsen became the beneficial owner of 1,000 shares of common stock of the Surviving Corporation, representing the only outstanding capital of the Surviving Corporation.

At the Effective Time, the Support Agreement terminated in accordance with its express terms.

In accordance with the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time, the directors of Purchaser, immediately prior to the Effective Time became the initial directors of the Surviving Corporation, and the officers of Purchaser, immediately prior to the Effective Time, became the initial officers of the Surviving Corporation.

On August 12, 2022, in connection with the Merger, the Issuer notified Nasdaq of the consummation of the Merger and requested that trading of the Offer Shares on Nasdaq be suspended on August 12, 2022. In addition, at the Issuer’s request, Nasdaq filed with the SEC an application on Form 25 to delist the Shares from Nasdaq and deregister the Shares under Section 12(b) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Act”). Trading of shares on Nasdaq was suspended at the close of trading on August 12, 2022. The Issuer intends to file with the SEC a Form 15 requesting that the Issuer’s reporting obligations under Section 13 and Section 15(d) of the Act be suspended.

The information set forth or incorporated by reference in Item 3 is incorporated by reference in this Item 4.”

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Item 5 of the Original 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

“(a) and (b)

At the Effective Time, and as a result of the Merger, each outstanding share of capital stock of Purchaser issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time was converted into shares of newly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock of the Surviving Corporation. Consequently, following the consummation of the Merger on August 12, 2022, Ipsen became the owner of, and for purposes of Rule 13d-3, beneficially owns, and has the sole power to vote and dispose of, 1,000 shares of common stock of the Surviving Corporation, representing the only outstanding capital of the Surviving Corporation. In addition, as a result of the Merger, the separate corporate existence of Purchaser has ceased, and therefore Purchaser owns no shares of the Issuer and has no authority to vote or direct the vote for any shares of the Issuer. Except as set forth in this Item 5(a), none of the Reporting Persons and, to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, no person named in Schedule A, beneficially owns or has any voting power or dispositive power over any Shares.

(c)

Other than as described above, since the filing of the Original 13D on July 7, 2022, to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, no transactions in the class of securities reported have been effected during the past 60 days by any person named in Schedule A or Item 5(a).

(d)

To the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, no other person has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the securities of the Issuer reported herein.

(e)

As a result of the termination of its corporate existence in connection with the Merger, Purchaser ceased to be the beneficial owner of any securities of the Issuer.

Given that the registration of the Offer Shares of the Issuer will be terminated, Offer Shares held by Ipsen will no longer be subject to reporting under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act.

Consequently, this Amendment constitutes an exit filing for the Reporting Persons.”

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

Item 6 of the Original 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following at the end thereof:

“At the Effective Time, the Support Agreement terminated in accordance with its express terms.”


Page 9 of 10

 

Item 7. Material to be Filed as Exhibits.

Item 7 of this Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following exhibits:
