This FIRST SUPPLEMENTAL INDENTURE (this “First Supplemental Indenture”), dated as of February 20, 2020, is by and between Dermira, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and U.S. Bank National Association, a national banking association, as trustee (the “Trustee”).
WHEREAS, the Company and the Trustee have heretofore entered into that certain Indenture, dated as of May 16, 2017 (the “Indenture”), to provide for the issuance of up to $287,500,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 (the “Notes”);
WHEREAS, the Company, Eli Lilly and Company, an Indiana corporation (“Parent”) and Bald Eagle Acquisition Corporation, a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of January 10, 2020 (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which Merger Sub commenced an offer to purchase any and all of the outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Shares”), of the Company, at a purchase price of $18.75 per Share in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes (the “Offer Price”) upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, the offer to purchase and the related letter of transmittal (the “Offer”);
WHEREAS, following the acceptance of the Shares tendered in the Offer by Merger Sub and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company pursuant to Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, as amended (the “DGCL”), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”);
WHEREAS, as a result of the Merger, Shares not tendered in the Offer (other than the Shares to be cancelled in accordance with Section 2.08(b) of the Merger Agreement and Shares owned by any stockholder who is entitled to demand and has properly exercised and perfected a demand for appraisal of such Shares pursuant to, and who has complied in all respects with, Section 262 of the DGCL and who, as of the effective time of the Merger, has neither effectively withdrawn nor lost such stockholder's rights to such appraisal and payment under the DGCL with respect to such Shares) will be converted automatically into the right to receive the Offer Price and will also cease to be outstanding and will automatically be cancelled and cease to exist and each holder of such Shares will only have the right to receive the Offer Price (the “Merger Consideration”);
WHEREAS, Article 11 of the Indenture permits the Company to merge with and into another person so long as certain conditions have been met;
WHEREAS, Section 14.07 of the Indenture provides, among other things, that if there occurs any Merger Event, including a merger involving the Company as a result of which the Common Stock represents solely the right to receive stock, other securities or other property or assets (including cash or any combination thereof), then, at and after the effective time of such Merger Event, the right to convert each $1,000 principal amount of Notes shall be changed into a right to convert such principal amount of Notes into the kind and amount of shares of stock, other securities or other property or assets (including cash or any combination thereof), that a holder of a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Conversion Rate immediately prior to such Merger Event would have owned or been entitled to receive (the “Reference Property”) upon such Merger Event;
WHEREAS, Section 14.07 of the Indenture provides that prior to or at the effective time of such Merger Event, the Company will execute with the Trustee a supplemental indenture providing for such change in the right to convert each $1,000 principal amount of Notes; provided, however, that at and after the effective time of the Merger Event the number of shares of Common Stock otherwise deliverable upon conversion of the Notes in accordance with Section 14.02 of the Indenture shall instead be deliverable in the amount and type of Reference Property that a holder of that number of shares of Common Stock would have received in such Merger Event;
WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 14.07 of the Indenture, the Reference Property shall consist of the Merger Consideration;
WHEREAS, the Company may consolidate with, merge with or into, or sell, convey, transfer or lease all or substantially all of the consolidated assets of the Company and its direct or indirect Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, to another Person subject to the provisions of Section 11.01 of the Indenture;
WHEREAS, Section 10.01 of the Indenture provides that, without the consent of any Holders of Notes, the Company and the Trustee may execute a supplemental indenture in connection with any Merger Event, to provide that the Notes are convertible into Reference Property, subject to the provisions of Section 14.02 of the Indenture, and make such related changes to the terms of the Notes to the extent expressly required by Section 14.07 of the Indenture;
WHEREAS, all conditions for the execution and delivery of this Supplemental Indenture have been complied with or have been done or performed; and
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto mutually covenant and agree for the equal and ratable benefit of the Holders as follows:
