This Amendment No. 4 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed by Eli Lilly and Company, an Indiana corporation (“Lilly”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 8, 2019, as amended by Amendment No. 1 to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, filed with the SEC on February 19, 2019, Amendment No. 2 to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, filed with the SEC on February 22, 2019 and Amendment No. 3 to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, filed with the SEC on March 7, 2019 (as so amended, the “Schedule TO”). This Amendment relates to the offer by Lilly to exchange up to an aggregate of 293,290,000 shares of common stock, no par value (“Elanco common stock”), of Elanco Animal Health Incorporated, an Indiana corporation (“Elanco”), for outstanding shares of common stock, no par value, of Lilly (“Lilly common stock”), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Prospectus, dated March 5, 2019 (the “Prospectus”) and the related Letter of Transmittal and instructions thereto (which, together with any amendments or supplements thereto, collectively constitute the “Exchange Offer”). In connection with the Exchange Offer, Elanco has filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, a registration statement on Form S-4 (Registration No. 333-229577) (as amended through the date hereof, the “Registration Statement”), of which the Prospectus forms a part, to register the shares of Elanco common stock offered in exchange for shares of Lilly common stock tendered in the Exchange Offer. The information set forth in the Prospectus and the Letter of Transmittal is incorporated herein by reference in response to all the items of this Schedule TO, except as otherwise set forth below. Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment No. 4 does not modify any of the information previously reported on the Schedule TO.

 

Item 4.   Terms of the Transaction.

 

Item 4(a) of the Schedule TO, which incorporates by reference the information contained in the Exchange Offer, is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following thereto:

 

The Exchange Offer expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on March 8, 2019. The Exchange Offer was oversubscribed. Based on a preliminary count by the exchange agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., 492,109,007 shares of Lilly common stock were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, including 179,675,890 shares of Lilly common stock that were validly tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery. Because the Exchange Offer is oversubscribed, Lilly will accept only a portion of the shares of Lilly common stock that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, on a pro rata basis in proportion to the number of shares tendered. Lilly will accept for exchange 65,000,775 shares of Lilly common stock in exchange for 293,290,000 shares of Elanco common stock owned by Lilly. Shareholders who own fewer than 100 shares of Lilly common stock, or an “odd-lot,” who have validly tendered all of their shares will not be subject to proration, in accordance with the terms of the Exchange Offer. Based on the preliminary results, if all shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery are delivered under the terms of the Exchange Offer, the estimated preliminary proration factor applied to tendered shares of Lilly common stock subject to proration is approximately 13.2%. The estimated preliminary proration factor is subject to change. Lilly expects to announce the final results of the Exchange Offer, including the final proration factor, on March 13, 2019, promptly following the expiration of the guaranteed delivery period. Shares of Lilly common stock tendered but not accepted for exchange will be returned to tendering shareholders in book-entry form promptly after the final proration factor is announced.

 

On March 11, 2019, Lilly issued a press release announcing the preliminary results of the Exchange Offer, which is incorporated herein by reference.
