The tender offer is conditioned on the tender of a majority of Chattem's shares calculated on a diluted basis, as well as the receipt of certain regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. Following the successful completion of the tender offer, a wholly owned subsidiary of sanofi-aventis will merge with Chattem and the outstanding Chattem shares not tendered in the tender offer will be converted into the right to receive the same $ 93.50 per share in cash paid in the tender offer.

Chattem's Board of Directors has unanimously approved the transaction.

The transaction is expected to be accretive to sanofi-aventis' earnings as early as year one. This acquisition will allow sanofi-aventis to optimize and retain the full value of the Allegra® switch to an OTC product.
