At the Effective Time, each share of (i) common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time was automatically cancelled and converted into the right to receive $4.28 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes (the “Common Stock Consideration”), and (ii) (a) Series A convertible preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and (b) Series A-1 convertible preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Series A-1 Preferred Stock”, and together with the Series A Preferred Stock, the “Preferred Stock”), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and Series A-1 Preferred Stock that had accrued and accumulated on a daily basis until the Effective Time, in accordance with the provisions of the certificate of designation, but which was not otherwise issued or outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, was automatically cancelled and converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to $85.60, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes (the “Preferred Stock Consideration”) (other than, in each of the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii), any Canceled Shares or Dissenting Shares (as each such term is defined in the Merger Agreement)).

At the Effective Time, each option to purchase shares of Common Stock that was outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, was cancelled and converted into the right to receive a cash payment (without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes) equal to the product of (i) the excess, if any, of the Common Stock Consideration over the per share exercise price of such option, and (ii) the number of shares of Common Stock subject to such option as of the Effective Time.

At the Effective Time, each warrant that was outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time was cancelled and converted into the right to receive a cash payment (without interest) equal to (i) the product of (a) the excess, if any, of (1) the Common Stock Consideration over (2) the per share exercise price of such warrant, and (b) the number of shares of Common Stock subject to such warrant as of the Effective Time, less (ii) any applicable withholding taxes required to be withheld by applicable law.

The total amount of funds to consummate the Merger and the related transactions, not including fees and expenses, was approximately $1.1 billion, including the funds needed to (i) pay holders of  Common Stock or Preferred Stock their respective Common Stock Consideration or Preferred Stock Consideration due to them under the Merger Agreement, (ii) make payments in respect of outstanding Company stock options and restricted stock unit awards pursuant to the Merger Agreement, (iii) make payments in respect of outstanding warrants pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and (iv) pay the outstanding net indebtedness of Corindus.
