(“Immunomedics”) multiplied by $88.00, (ii) 7,308,692 Shares issuable pursuant to outstanding “in-the-money” stock options multiplied by $70.44 (which is $88.00 minus the weighted average exercise price for such options of $17.56 per Share) and (iii) 126,026 Shares issuable pursuant to restricted stock units multiplied by $88.00. The calculation of the filing fee is based on information provided by Immunomedics as of September 18, 2020.

 

**          The filing fee was calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Fee Rate Advisory No. 1 for Fiscal Year 2020, issued August 23, 2019, by multiplying the transaction value by 0.0001298.

This Amendment No. 3 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed by Maui Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Purchaser”), and Gilead Sciences, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on September 24, 2020 (together with any subsequent amendments and supplements thereto, the “Schedule TO”). The Schedule TO relates to the offer by Purchaser to purchase all outstanding shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share (“Shares”), of Immunomedics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Immunomedics”), at a price of $88.00 per Share, net to the holder in cash, without interest and subject to any withholding of taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase dated September 24, 2020 (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the “Offer to Purchase”) and in the accompanying Letter of Transmittal (together with any amendments or supplements thereto and with the Offer to Purchase, the “Offer”), which are annexed to and filed with the Schedule TO as Exhibits (a)(1)(A) and (a)(1)(B), respectively. Purchaser is a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. This Amendment is being filed on behalf of Parent and Purchaser. Unless otherwise indicated, references to sections in the Schedule TO are references to sections of the Offer to Purchase.

 

Except as otherwise set forth in this Amendment, the information set forth in the Schedule TO remains unchanged and is incorporated herein by reference to the extent relevant to the items in this Amendment. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings ascribed to them in the Schedule TO.

 

Items 1 through 9 and Item 11.

 

The information set forth in the Offer to Purchase under “The Tender Offer—Section 15—Certain Legal Matters; Regulatory Approvals” and Items 1 through 9 and Item 11 of the Schedule TO, to the extent such Items incorporate by reference the information contained in the Offer to Purchase, are hereby amended and supplemented by replacing the last two paragraphs at the end of the subsection titled “Legal Proceedings Relating to the Tender Offer,” as such subsection was amended by Amendment No. 2 to the Schedule TO filed with the SEC on October 2, 2020, with the following paragraphs:

 

“On October 2, 2020, a complaint was filed by a purported stockholder of Immunomedics regarding the Merger. The complaint, filed on an individual basis by the plaintiff, is captioned Munya Bengesa v. Immunomedics, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:20-cv-08227 (S.D.N.Y.) (the “Bengesa Complaint”). The Bengesa Complaint names as defendants Immunomedics and each member of the Immunomedics Board. The Bengesa Complaint alleges violations of Section 14(e) and 14(d) of the Exchange Act against all defendants and asserts violations of Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act against the individual defendants. The plaintiff contends that the Schedule 14D-9 omitted and/or misrepresented material information regarding the Offer. The Bengesa Complaint seeks: (i) injunctive relief preventing the consummation of the Transactions; (ii) filing of an amendment to the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement that does not contain any untrue statements of material fact and that states all material facts required in it or necessary to make the statements contained therein not misleading; (iii) damages to account for damages sustained by the plaintiff in connection with the allegations asserted in the Bengesa Complaint; and (iv) an award of plaintiff’s expenses and attorneys’ fees.

 

On October 7, 2020, a complaint was filed by a purported stockholder of Immunomedics regarding the Merger. The complaint, filed on an individual basis by the plaintiff, is captioned Eleanor F. Palmisano v. Immunomedics, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:20-cv-08392 (S.D.N.Y.) (the “Palmisano Complaint”). The Palmisano Complaint names as defendants Immunomedics and each member of the Immunomedics Board. The Palmisano Complaint alleges violations of Section 14(e) and 14(d) of the Exchange Act against all defendants and asserts violations of Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act against the individual defendants. The plaintiff contends that the Schedule 14D-9 omitted and/or misrepresented material information regarding the Offer. The Palmisano Complaint seeks: (i) injunctive relief preventing the consummation of the Transactions; (ii) rescissory damages or rescission in the event the Transactions are consummated; (iii) filing of an amendment to the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement that does not contain any untrue statements of material fact and that states all material facts required in it or necessary to make the statements contained therein not misleading; (iv) declaration that defendants violated Section 14(e), 14(d) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act; and (v) an award of plaintiff’s expenses and attorneys’ fees.

 

On October 9, 2020, a complaint was filed by a purported stockholder of Immunomedics regarding the Merger. The complaint, filed on an individual basis by the plaintiff, is captioned Sirvesta Thomas v. Immunomedics, Inc., et al., Case No. 2:20-cv-14249 (D.N.J.) (the “Thomas Complaint”). The Thomas Complaint names as defendants Immunomedics and each member of the Immunomedics Board, as well as Immunomedics’ former CEO Harout Semerjian. The Thomas Complaint alleges violations of Section 14(e) and 14(d) of the Exchange Act against all defendants and asserts violations of Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act against the individual defendants. The plaintiff contends that the Schedule 14D-9 omitted and/or misrepresented material information regarding the Offer. The Thomas Complaint seeks: (i) injunctive relief preventing the consummation of the Transactions; (ii) rescissory damages or rescission in the event the Transactions are consummated; and (iii) an award of plaintiff’s expenses and attorneys’ fees.

 

As a result of certain supplemental disclosures made to the Schedule 14D-9, the plaintiff who filed the Drulias Complaint has agreed to dismiss his action with prejudice.

 

Parent, Purchaser and Immunomedics believe the claims asserted in each of the complaints are without merit.

 

Additional lawsuits may be filed against Immunomedics, the Immunomedics Board, Parent and/or Purchaser in connection with the Transactions, the Schedule TO and the Schedule 14D-9.”
