MENLO PARK, Calif., Dec. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corium International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Corium”, the “Issuer”, “we”, “us” or “our”), today announced that, as a result of its acquisition by Gurnet Point Capital on November 27, 2018, it has commenced an offer to purchase any and all of its outstanding 5.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025, CUSIP No. 21887LAA5 (the “Notes”), issued and outstanding under the Indenture, dated as of March 5, 2018, as amended by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of November 27, 2018, as may be further amended or supplemented from time to time, (the “Indenture”), between the Issuer and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”) for cash, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Fundamental Change Notice and Offer to Purchase and in the accompanying Letter of Transmittal, at the Fundamental Change Purchase Price (as defined below) (the “Fundamental Change Repurchase”).
The Fundamental Change Repurchase is being made pursuant to Section 4.02 of the Indenture, which provides that, on or before the twentieth (20th) calendar day after the occurrence of a Fundamental Change (as defined in the Indenture), the Issuer shall make an offer to each registered holder of Notes (“Holder”) to repurchase all or any part (equal to $1,000 in principal amount or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof) of each Holder’s Notes at a purchase price for any Note in an amount in cash equal to the principal amount of such Note, plus accrued and unpaid interest on such Note to, but excluding, the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date (as defined below) for such Fundamental Change (the “Fundamental Change Purchase Price”). Holders whose Notes are being purchased only in part will be issued new Notes equal in principal amount to the unpurchased portion of the Notes surrendered, whose unpurchased portion must be equal to $1,000 in principal amount or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof.

On October 11, 2018, Corium entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Gurnet Holding Company (“Parent”) and Gurnet Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”), providing for the acquisition of Corium by Parent in a two-step transaction, consisting of a tender offer (the “Offer”) followed immediately by a merger of Merger Sub with and into Corium (the “Merger”). On November 27, 2018, Parent completed its acquisition of Corium by consummating the Merger with Corium continuing as the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.
