INTRODUCTORY NOTE

 

On November 8, 2019, the acquisition of Genomic Health, Inc. (“Genomic Health”) by Exact Sciences Corporation (“Exact Sciences”) was consummated pursuant to the terms of the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of July 28, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Genomic Health, Exact Sciences and Spring Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Exact Sciences (“Merger Sub”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into Genomic Health (the “Merger”), with Genomic Health continuing as the surviving corporation. As a result of the Merger, Genomic Health became a wholly owned subsidiary of Exact Sciences.

 

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

 

The information set forth in the Introductory Note of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.01.

 

At the effective time of the Merger on November 8, 2019 (the “Effective Time”), each share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Genomic Health (“Genomic Health Common Stock”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (except for shares held by a holder who properly exercised and perfected appraisal rights under Delaware law) was converted into the right to receive (i) $27.50 in cash, without interest, and (ii) 0.45043 of a share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Exact Sciences (“Exact Sciences Common Stock”) and cash in lieu of fractional shares (together, the “Merger Consideration”), less any applicable withholding taxes.

 

As of the Effective Time, each outstanding Genomic Health stock option granted to a non-employee director of Genomic Health, whether or not vested, and each vested Genomic Health stock option was canceled in exchange for the right to receive the Merger Consideration in an amount based on the spread between the Merger Consideration and the per share exercise price of such Genomic Health stock option, less applicable tax withholding. In addition, as of the Effective Time, each outstanding Genomic Health restricted stock unit granted to a non-employee director of Genomic Health was canceled in exchange for the right to receive the Merger Consideration in respect of each share of Genomic Health Common Stock subject to such award. Each outstanding unvested Genomic Health stock option and outstanding Genomic Health restricted stock unit (other than any stock options or restricted stock units held by non-employee directors) was assumed by Exact Sciences and converted into a corresponding award of Exact Sciences as of the Effective Time, in each case, as calculated in accordance with the formula set forth in the Merger Agreement and after appropriate adjustments to reflect the consummation of the Merger and the terms and conditions applicable to such awards immediately prior to the Effective Time.

 

The merger was financed by the use of cash on hand.

 

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement and Merger is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which was included as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report filed on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 30, 2019, and is incorporated into this item by reference.

On November 8, 2019, in connection with the consummation of the Merger, Genomic Health notified the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that the Merger had been consummated and requested that Nasdaq file with the SEC a notification on Form 25 to delist the Genomic Health Common Stock from Nasdaq and to deregister the Genomic Health Common Stock under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Genomic Health Common Stock ceased trading on Nasdaq prior to market open on November 8, 2019. Genomic Health intends to file with the SEC a Certification and Notice of Termination on Form 15 requesting the deregistration of the Genomic Health Common Stock under Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act and the suspension of Genomic Health’s reporting obligations under Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act. The disclosure set forth in the Introductory Note and under Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.01.

Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the restated certificate of incorporation of Genomic Health that was in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time was amended and restated in its entirety as set forth in Exhibit B to the Merger Agreement and, as so amended and restated, is the certificate of incorporation of the surviving corporation. The bylaws of Merger Sub that were in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time became the bylaws of the surviving corporation, except as to the name of the surviving corporation, which is “Genomic Health, Inc.” The certificate of incorporation and the bylaws of Genomic Health as so amended and restated are attached as Exhibits 3.1 and 3.2 hereto, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.
