|Item 8.01|| |
As previously disclosed, on February 8, 2023, NuVasive, Inc. (NuVasive) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement) with Globus Medical, Inc. (Globus Medical) and Zebra Merger Sub, Inc. (Merger Sub), a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Globus Medical. The Merger Agreement provides, among other things, that subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth therein, including the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the HSR Act), Merger Sub will merge with and into NuVasive (the Merger), with NuVasive surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Globus Medical.
As previously disclosed, on March 31, 2023, Globus Medical, in consultation with NuVasive, voluntarily withdrew its filed Premerger Notification and Report Form (the HSR Filing) and, on April 3, 2023, in order to provide the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) additional time to review the proposed transaction, Globus Medical, in consultation with NuVasive, re-filed its HSR Filing with the FTC under the HSR Act.
On May 3, 2023, NuVasive and Globus Medical each received a request for additional information (the Second Request) from the FTC in connection with the FTCs review of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Issuance of the Second Request extends the waiting period under the HSR Act until 30 days after both NuVasive and Globus Medical substantially comply with the Second Request, unless the waiting period is extended voluntarily by the parties or terminated earlier by the FTC. NuVasive and Globus Medical have been working cooperatively with the FTC and will continue to do so.
NuVasive and Globus Medical have each received the requisite stockholder approvals at their respective stockholder meetings on April 27, 2023, and therefore all third party approvals that are closing conditions to the Merger under the Merger Agreement, other than the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the HSR Act, have been received. NuVasive expects that the Merger will close in the third quarter of 2023, subject to the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the HSR Act and the satisfaction or waiver of the other customary closing conditions.
