Merck Completes Acquisition of Pandion Therapeutics

Kenilworth-based Merck, known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, announced the successful completion of the cash tender offer, through a subsidiary, for all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Pandion Therapeutics, Inc. at a purchase price of $60 per share. As of the tender offer expiration, 27,770,123 shares of common stock of Pandion were validly tendered and not withdrawn from the tender offer, representing approximately 88.6% percent of the outstanding common stock of Pandion on a fully diluted basis. All such shares have been accepted for payment in accordance with the terms of the tender offer, and Merck expects to promptly pay for such shares.

Following the finalization of the tender offer, Merck completed the acquisition of Pandion today through a merger of Merck’s wholly-owned subsidiary with and into Pandion in which all shares not tendered into the offer were cancelled and converted into the right to receive cash equal to the $60 offer price per share, without interest, less any applicable tax withholding. At the completion of the merger, Pandion became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Merck. The common stock of Pandion will no longer be listed or traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.
