About the Cash Tender Offer
Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Allergan will commence a cash tender offer to purchase all of MAP’s outstanding shares for $25.00 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes. The tender offer will remain open for at least 20 business days. The completion of the tender offer is subject to the tender of at least a majority of MAP’s outstanding shares of common stock (on a fully diluted basis), the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, and other customary closing conditions. The merger agreement also provides for the parties to effect, subject to customary conditions, a merger following the completion of the tender offer which would result in all shares not tendered in the tender offer being converted into the right to receive $25.00 per share, net to the holder in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes. The board of directors of MAP has unanimously agreed to recommend that MAP’s stockholders tender their shares to Allergan in the tender offer. All of MAP’s directors and executive officers and a major stockholder of MAP affiliated with a director, collectively owning approximately 9 percent of MAP’s outstanding common stock, have entered into a tender and support agreement with Allergan committing to tender all of their MAP shares in the tender offer and, if applicable, to vote in favor of the merger.
