Item 8.01 Other Events.
On June 18, 2019, the U.K. Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) announced that it will refer Illumina, Inc.’s (the Company’s) proposed acquisition of Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. for Phase II review if the parties are unable to address the CMA’s concerns. Illumina expects the proposed acquisition will be referred for Phase II review, and both parties will continue to work cooperatively with the CMA. Illumina now expects to close the transaction in Q4 2019.
Consummation of the proposed acquisition is subject to certain conditions beyond the Company’s control that may prevent, delay, or otherwise adversely affect its completion. No assurance can be given that the required regulatory approvals will be obtained or that the required conditions to closing will be satisfied, and, even if all such approvals are obtained and the conditions are satisfied, no assurance can be given as to the terms, conditions and timing of the approvals. For more information about risks relating to the completion of the proposed acquisition, please refer to the “Risk Factors” sections of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2018 and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.
Legal Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
All statements in this Form 8-K that are not historical are forward-looking statements, including, among other things, statements relating to the expected timing for the consummation of the proposed acquisition. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, changes in circumstances and other factors that are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control and could cause actual results to differ materially from the information expressed or implied by forward-looking statements made in this Form 8-K. Factors that could materially affect actual results can be found in the Company’s most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s most recent reports on Forms 8-K, 10-K and 10-Q, and include those listed under the caption “Risk Factors.” The Company undertakes no obligation to revise or update information in this Form 8-K to reflect events or circumstances in the future, even if new information becomes available.
