Pursuant to the merger agreement, upon completion of the tender offer and the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions, Purchaser will merge with and into the Company and all outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, other than shares held by Parent, Purchaser or the Company or its subsidiaries or shares held by the Company's stockholders who validly exercise appraisal rights under Delaware law, will be converted into the right to receive $35.00 per share, in cash, payable without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.
