(“Santarus” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SNTS) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Salix Pharmaceuticals, Ltd. (“Salix”). Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Santarus stockholders will receive $32.00 in cash for each share of Santarus owned, valuing the transaction at approximately $2.6 billion.
