Introduction

 

This Transaction Statement on Schedule 13E-3 (together with the exhibits hereto, this “Schedule 13E-3” or this “Transaction Statement”) is being filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to Section 13(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (together with the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, the “Exchange Act”), by: (i) Myovant Sciences Ltd., a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares (“Myovant”); (ii) Sumitovant Biopharma Ltd., a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares (“Sumitovant”); (iii) Sumitomo Pharma Co., Ltd., a company organized under the laws of Japan (“SMP”); and (iv) Zeus Sciences Ltd., a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares and a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitovant (“Merger Sub”) (each a “Filing Person” and Sumitovant, SMP and Merger Sub, collectively, the “Purchaser Filing Persons”).

 

This Transaction Statement relates to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 23, 2022 (as it may be amended from time to time in accordance with its terms, the “Merger Agreement”), and a related statutory merger agreement (the “Statutory Merger Agreement”) by and among Myovant, Sumitovant, Merger Sub and, solely with respect to Article IX and Annex A of the Merger Agreement, SMP. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement and the Statutory Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into Myovant (the “Merger”), with Myovant continuing as the surviving company following the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitovant. If the Merger is completed, and upon the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Statutory Merger Agreement, holders of common shares of Myovant, par value $0.000017727 per share (the “Myovant common shares”) (other than Myovant common shares held by (i) Dissenting Holders (as defined in the Proxy Statement (as defined below)), (ii) Sumitovant or (iii) Myovant or its wholly owned subsidiaries) immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger will be entitled to receive $27.00 per share in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes (the “per share merger consideration”). If the Merger is completed, Myovant common shares will cease to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange and price quotations with respect to sales of Myovant common shares in the public market will no longer be available. In addition, registration of the Myovant common shares under the Exchange Act will be terminated. As a result, if the Merger is completed, Myovant would no longer file periodic reports with the SEC in respect of Myovant common shares.

 

Concurrently with the filing of this Transaction Statement, Myovant is filing with the SEC a preliminary proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) under Regulation 14A of the Exchange Act, pursuant to which the Special Committee (as defined below) is soliciting proxies from Myovant shareholders in connection with the Merger Agreement. The Proxy Statement is attached hereto as Exhibit (a)(1). A copy of the Merger Agreement is attached to the Proxy Statement as Annex A and is incorporated herein by reference. As of the date hereof, the Proxy Statement is in preliminary form, and is subject to completion or amendment.

 

The board of directors of Myovant (the “Myovant Board”) formed a special committee (the “Special Committee”) consisting solely of independent directors serving on the audit committee of the Myovant Board to, among other things, (i) review and consider whether it would be appropriate and desirable for Myovant to enter into a potential transaction with Sumitovant, (ii) develop, assess and negotiate the terms of a potential transaction with Sumitovant and alternatives thereto and (iii) make a recommendation to the full Myovant Board as to whether Myovant should enter into such potential transaction. Pursuant to the authority delegated by the Myovant Board, the Special Committee adopted resolutions by unanimous vote of its members at a meeting duly called (i) determining that the per share merger consideration constitutes fair value for each Myovant common share in accordance with the Companies Act 1981 of Bermuda, as amended, (ii) determining that the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Statutory Merger Agreement, the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the Statutory Merger Agreement and the Sumitovant Voting Agreement (as defined below) are fair to and in the best interests of Myovant and its shareholders (including “unaffiliated security holders,” as defined under Rule 13e-3 under the Exchange Act); and (iii) recommending that the Myovant Board (a) declare advisable the execution, delivery and performance of the Merger Agreement and the Statutory Merger Agreement, the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the Statutory Merger Agreement and the Sumitovant Voting Agreement, (b) adopt the Merger Agreement and the Statutory Merger Agreement and approve the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the Statutory Merger Agreement and the Sumitovant Voting Agreement, and (c) subject to the right of the Myovant Board (acting upon the recommendation of the Special Committee) and the Special Committee to change their recommendations in certain circumstances specified in the Merger Agreement, recommend that Myovant’s shareholders vote in favor of the adoption and approval of the Merger Agreement and the Statutory Merger Agreement, the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the Statutory Merger Agreement and the Sumitovant Voting Agreement, at a duly held meeting of Myovant’s shareholders for such purpose.

The Merger cannot be completed unless the Merger Agreement and the Statutory Merger Agreement, the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the Statutory Merger Agreement and the Sumitovant Voting Agreement, at a duly held meeting of such holders for such purpose (the “Merger Proposal”), is approved by the affirmative vote of the holders of (i) a majority of the issued and outstanding Myovant common shares entitled to vote on the Merger Proposal and voting at the special general meeting and (ii) a majority of the outstanding Myovant common shares held by Myovant’s shareholders other than Sumitovant or its affiliates. The obligations of Myovant, Sumitovant and Merger Sub to consummate the Merger are subject to the satisfaction or, to the extent permitted by applicable law, waiver, at or prior to the closing of the Merger, of certain additional customary conditions, including (i) the absence of any law or order from a governmental entity that is in effect and restrains, enjoins or otherwise prohibits the consummation of the Merger, (ii) expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, (iii) the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the parties, subject to certain materiality qualifiers, (iv) compliance in all material respects by the parties with their respective obligations under the Merger Agreement and (v) with respect to the obligations of Sumitovant and Merger Sub, the absence of any fact, circumstance, change, event or development that, individually or in the aggregate, has had or would reasonably be expected to have a Company Material Adverse (as defined in the Merger Agreement attached to the Proxy Statement as Annex A and as incorporated herein by reference).

 

The proposed Merger is a “going-private” transaction under the rules of the SEC. Sumitovant and its affiliates, as of November 30, 2022, are the record or beneficial owner of approximately 51.6% of the voting power of the Myovant common shares entitled to vote at the special general meeting.

 

As a condition to Myovant’s willingness to enter into the Merger Agreement and to proceed with the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger, Sumitovant entered into a voting and support agreement concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement (the “Sumitovant Voting Agreement”) with Myovant. Pursuant to the Sumitovant Voting Agreement and consistent with the Merger Agreement, Sumitovant agreed to be present for the purposes of quorum and to vote, or cause to be voted, all of the Myovant common shares that it or its affiliates (other than Myovant and its subsidiaries) beneficially own in favor of the Merger Proposal and each of the other transactions and documents relating thereto of which approval of Myovant’s shareholders is solicited, in each case, at any meeting of Myovant’s shareholders held during the term of the Merger Agreement and at any permitted adjournment or postponement thereof (which includes the special general meeting). Sumitovant also granted Myovant an irrevocable proxy to appear, cause to be counted, vote, and to exercise all voting and consent rights of Sumitovant with respect to Myovant common shares beneficially owned by Sumitovant with respect to the Merger Proposal and each of the other transactions and documents related thereto of which approval of Myovant’s shareholders is solicited. Sumitovant also agreed that it will not transfer any Myovant common shares back to Roivant Sciences Ltd. until after the record date for the special general meeting and after all such Myovant common shares have been voted in favor (by irrevocable proxy) of the adoption and approval of the Merger Proposal.

 

Pursuant to General Instruction F to Schedule 13E-3, the information in the Proxy Statement, including all annexes thereto, is expressly incorporated by reference herein in its entirety, and responses to each item herein are qualified in their entirety by the information contained in the Proxy Statement.
