Item 8.01. Other Events.


As previously disclosed, on December 9, 2019, Diplomat Pharmacy, Inc., a Michigan corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, UnitedHealth Group Incorporated, a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and Denali Merger Sub, Inc., a Michigan corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Sub”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Sub will commence a tender offer (the “Offer”) to purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, no par value per share, of the Company (the “Company Common Stock”) at a price per share of $4.00, net to the seller in cash, without interest and subject to any required tax withholding. The Merger Agreement also provides that following the consummation of the Offer, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Sub will merge with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving as a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.


On December 27, 2019, the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (the “HSR Act”) expired in connection with the Offer and the Merger. The expiration of the waiting period under the HSR Act satisfies one of the conditions to the Offer, which remains subject to other conditions, including (i) that there shall have been validly tendered and not properly withdrawn in accordance with the terms of the Offer prior to the expiration of the Offer that number of shares of Company Common Stock that, when added to the shares of Company Common Stock (if any) directly or indirectly owned by Parent and its wholly owned subsidiaries, is equal to at least a majority of the shares of Company Common Stock outstanding at such time (the “Minimum Tender Condition”), (ii) the accuracy of the Company’s representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement and its compliance with its covenants and obligations in the Merger Agreement, in each case subject to certain materiality standards, (iii) the absence of judgments issued by governmental entities of competent jurisdiction or laws enjoining, restraining, prohibiting, preventing or making illegal the making of the Offer, the consummation of the Offer or the Merger and (iv) the receipt of certain consents, authorizations and approvals and the making of certain filings, applications and notices under certain state pharmacy laws.


The transaction is expected to close in early 2020, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing conditions and the satisfaction of the other closing conditions specified in the Merger Agreement.


Important Additional Information


The tender offer for the outstanding Company Common Stock has not yet commenced. The communication materials referenced above do not constitute an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell any securities. The solicitation and the offer to buy shares of Company Common Stock will be made only pursuant to an offer to purchase and related materials that Parent and Sub intend to file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). If the tender offer is commenced, Parent and Sub will file a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO with the SEC, and thereafter the Company will file a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 with respect to the tender offer. The Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO (including an offer to purchase, a related letter of transmittal and other offer documents) and the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 will contain important information that should be considered before any decision is made with respect to the tender offer. BEFORE MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION, INVESTORS AND SECURITY HOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THESE MATERIALS AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS FILED OR TO BE FILED WITH THE SEC CAREFULLY AND IN THEIR ENTIRETY WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

Saginaw Street, Flint, Michigan 48507, (888) 720-4450 or or by contacting D.F.
