According to the terms of the tender offer, all shares that were validly tendered have been accepted for payment. Kimberly-Clark intends to complete the acquisition of all remaining shares of I-Flow through a merger by close of business today. In the merger, each of the remaining shares of I-Flow common stock will be converted into the right to receive $12.65 per share, in cash, without interest and less any required withholding taxes, which is the same amount per share paid in the tender offer. The offer was conducted through Boxer Acquisition, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kimberly-Clark. As a result of the purchase of the shares in the tender offer, Boxer Acquisition has sufficient voting power to approve the merger without the affirmative vote of any other I-Flow stockholder.
