This Amendment No. 4 to the combined Tender Offer Statement, Rule 13e-3 Transaction Statement and Schedule 13D amendment filed under cover of Schedule TO further amends and supplements the Schedule TO filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “ Commission ”) on February 2, 2018, as amended and supplemented by Amendment No. 1 filed with the Commission on February 14, 2018, Amendment No. 2 filed with the Commission on February 21, 2018 and Amendment No. 3 filed with the Commission on February 22, 2018 (together with any amendments and supplements thereto, the “ Schedule TO ”), and relates to the offer by Blue Magpie Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“ Purchaser ”) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Celgene Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“ Celgene ”), to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “ Shares ”), of Juno Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“ Juno ”) (other than any Shares owned at the commencement of the Offer (as defined below) by (i) Celgene, Purchaser or any other direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Celgene and (ii) Juno (or held in Juno’s treasury)) at a price of $87.00 per Share, net to the seller in cash, without interest and subject to any withholding of taxes in accordance with the Merger Agreement (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated February 2, 2018 (the “ Offer to Purchase ”), which is annexed to and filed with the Schedule TO as Exhibit (a)(1)(A), and in the related Letter of Transmittal, which is annexed to and filed with the Schedule TO as Exhibit (a)(1)(B), which, together with any amendments or supplements thereto, collectively constitute the “ Offer .”

 

The Schedule TO, and all the information set forth in the Offer to Purchase, to the extent incorporated by reference therein, is hereby amended and supplemented as set forth below. Every Item in the Schedule TO is automatically updated, to the extent such Item incorporates by reference any section of the Offer to Purchase that is amended and supplemented herein. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Offer to Purchase.

 

Items 1 through 9, 11 and 13.     

 

Items 1 through 9, 11 and 13 of the Schedule TO are hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following:

 

The Offer expired at one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, at the end of the day on Friday, March 2, 2018. The Depositary has advised Celgene and Purchaser that, as of the expiration of the Offer, a total of 88,118,707 Shares (excluding Shares with respect to which Notices of Guaranteed Delivery were delivered) were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer, representing approximately 76% of the Shares outstanding as of the expiration of the Offer and, when taken together with the Celgene-Owned Shares, representing approximately 85% of the Shares outstanding as of the expiration of the Offer. In addition, Notices of Guaranteed Delivery have been delivered with respect to approximately 2,611,851 Shares that have not yet been tendered, representing approximately 2% of the outstanding Shares.

 

As of the expiration of the Offer, the number of Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer satisfied the Minimum Condition as defined in the Offer to Purchase, and all other conditions to the Offer were satisfied or waived. Promptly after the expiration of the Offer, Purchaser irrevocably accepted for payment, and expects to promptly pay for, all Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer.

 

2  

 

 

As a result of its acceptance of the Shares tendered in the Offer (together with the 11,109,160 Shares beneficially owned by Celgene prior to the commencement of the Offer), Purchaser acquired sufficient Shares to complete the Merger without the affirmative vote of the stockholders of Juno pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL. Celgene and Purchaser expect to effect the Merger as soon as practicable in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. At the effective time of the Merger, each Share (other than the Excluded Shares (as defined in the Merger Agreement)) then outstanding will be canceled and converted into the right to receive $87.00, in cash, without interest and subject to any withholding of taxes.

 

Following consummation of the Merger, the Shares will be delisted and will cease to trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. Celgene and Purchaser intend to take steps to cause the termination of the registration of the Shares under the Exchange Act and suspend all of Juno’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act as promptly as practicable.

 

On March 5, 2018, Celgene issued a press release announcing the expiration and results of the Offer. The full text of the press release is attached as Exhibit (a)(5)(L) hereto, and is incorporated herein by reference.

CELGENE ANNOUNCES EXPIRATION OF CASH TENDER OFFER FOR SHARES OF JUNO THERAPEUTICS, INC.

 

SUMMIT, NJ – (March 5, 2018) – Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) today announced that its tender offer to purchase any and all issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Juno Therapeutics, Inc. at a price of $87.00 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest and less required withholding taxes, expired at 12:00 midnight ET, at the end of the day on Friday, March 2, 2018.

 

The depositary for the tender offer has advised that, as of the expiration of the tender offer, a total of approximately 90,730,558 shares were validly tendered and not withdrawn in the tender offer (including shares delivered through notices of guaranteed delivery), representing approximately 78% of Juno’s outstanding shares or approximately 88% of Juno's outstanding shares including the Juno shares already owned by Celgene. Celgene’s wholly-owned subsidiary will accept for payment all shares that were validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to expiration of the tender offer, and payment for such shares will be made promptly, in accordance with the terms of the tender offer.

 

Celgene expects the merger to close in the coming days, with Juno becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Celgene. As a consequence of the merger, each outstanding Juno share not tendered and purchased in the offer (other than those as to which holders properly exercise dissenters’ rights and those owned at the commencement of the tender offer by Celgene or its direct and indirect subsidiaries) will be converted into the right to receive the same $87.00 per share, net to the holder in cash, without interest and less any required withholding taxes, that was offered in the tender offer. Following completion of the merger, Juno’s common stock will cease to be traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.
