American Medical Systems Gives Notice Of Make-Whole Fundamental Change Conversion Rights To Holders Of 4.00% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes Due 2041

American Medical Systems Holdings, Inc. (“AMS” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AMMD) announced that, pursuant to the terms of the indenture (the “2041 Indenture”) governing its 4.00% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due 2041 (the “2041 Notes”), a “Make-Whole Fundamental Change” (as such term is defined in the 2041 Indenture) occurred on June 17, 2011 (the “Make-Whole Effective Date”) as a result of the transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 10, 2011 (the “Merger Agreement”) among Endo Pharmaceuticals Holdings Inc. (“Endo”), NIKA Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Endo (“Merger Sub”), and AMS. As previously disclosed, under the Merger Agreement, Endo acquired AMS for $30.00 per share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share of AMS. Merger Sub merged with and into AMS on June 17, 2011 (the “Merger”), with AMS continuing as the surviving corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Endo. Completion of the Merger constitutes a Make-Whole Fundamental Change under the 2041 Indenture.

Holders of the outstanding 2041 Notes have the right to convert such 2041 Notes at any time beginning on June 17, 2011 (the date that is the “Make-Whole Effective Date” (as such term is defined in the 2041 Indenture)) and until the related “Fundamental Change Repurchase Date” (as such term is defined in the 2041 Indenture), in accordance with, and subject to, the provisions of the 2041 Notes and the 2041 Indenture.
