Roche and InterMune Reach Definitive Merger Agreement
Date:8/24/2014

art of the new drug application (NDA) resubmission that InterMune made in May 2014.  On July 17, 2014 pirfenidone received breakthrough therapy designation from the FDA.  This designation is reserved for drugs that are intended to treat a serious or life-threatening disease or condition and preliminary clinical evidence indicates that the drug may demonstrate substantial improvement over existing therapies on one or more clinically significant endpoints.  The target action date, also known as the PDUFA date, for the pirfenidone NDA is November 23, 2014.

In addition to pirfenidone, InterMune has research programs exploring new targets and pathways that may ultimately lead to improved treatment options for people with IPF, and other fibrotic diseases.

Terms of the agreement
Under the terms of the merger agreement, Roche will promptly commence a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of InterMune's common stock at a price of $74.00 per share in cash. The closing of the tender offer will be subject to the tender of a number of shares that represents a majority of the total number of outstanding shares on a fully diluted basis.  In addition, the transaction is subject to the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 and other customary conditions.

Following completion of the tender offer, Roche will acquire all remaining shares at the same price of $74.00 per share through a second step merger.  The closing of the transaction is expected to take place in 2014.

Citi is acting as financial advisor to Roche and Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP is acting as legal counsel to Roche.  Centerview Partners and Goldman Sachs are acting as financial advisors to InterMune and Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP is acting as legal counsel to InterMune.
