ITEM 1.01.

ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

On November 1, 2018, Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Illumina, Inc. (“Illumina”) and FC Ops Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Illumina (“Merger Subsidiary”). The Merger Agreement provides that, subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, Merger Subsidiary will merge with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Illumina

On September 25, 2019, the Company, Illumina and Merger Subsidiary entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) to the Merger Agreement. The Amendment, among other things, extends the End Time (as defined in the Merger Agreement) to December 31, 2019, subject to Illumina’s unilateral right to extend the End Time to March 31, 2020. In addition, the Amendment provides that Illumina will make cash payments to the Company of $6 million on or before each of October 1, 2019, November 1, 2019 and December 2, 2019. If Illumina elects to extend the End Time, then Illumina will make cash payments to the Company of $6 million on or before each of January 2, 2020, and March 2, 2020, and a cash payment of $22 million on or before February 3, 2020. The Company will use these payments, which are collectively referred to as the “Continuation Advances,” to fund its continuing operations. Up to the full amount of the Continuation Advances actually paid to the Company are repayable without interest if (1) the Merger Agreement is terminated and (2) within two years of termination, the Company enters into certain change-of-control transactions with a third party or raises at least $100 million in equity or debt financing in a single transaction (with the amount repayable dependent on the amount raised by the Company).    

The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
