BOSTON, April 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AMICAS, Inc.

The depositary for the tender offer has advised AMICAS that shareholders of Emageon have tendered and not withdrawn a total of approximately 18,882,734 shares of Emageon common stock. These shares represent approximately 88 percent of the outstanding shares of Emageon. AMICAS Acquisition Corp. has accepted for payment all Emageon shares tendered in the offer.

AMICAS also announced that AMICAS Acquisition Corp. intends to exercise its "top-up" option in accordance with the previously announced merger agreement with Emageon. The exercise of the top-up option will allow AMICAS Acquisition Corp. to increase its share ownership percentage of Emageon through the purchase of newly-issued shares of Emageon common stock at the tender offer price. As a result, AMICAS Acquisition Corp. will own more than 90 percent of the outstanding shares of Emageon common stock and intends to effect a short-form merger as promptly as practicable, without the need for a meeting of Emageon shareholders. In the merger, AMICAS Acquisition Corp. will acquire all other Emageon shares (other than those as to which holders properly exercise dissenters' rights) at the same $1.82 per share price, without interest and less any required withholding taxes, that was paid in the tender offer. As a result of the merger, Emageon will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of AMICAS and Emageon shares will cease to be traded on The NASDAQ Global Market.
