Introduction

On February 11, 2019, athenahealth, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), completed its previously announced merger (the “Merger”) with May Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of athenahealth Holding Corp. (f/k/a May Holding Corp.), a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), pursuant to the terms of that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of November 11, 2018, by and among the Company, Parent and Merger Sub (the “Merger Agreement”). The Company was the surviving corporation in the Merger. Parent is controlled by investment funds controlled by Veritas Capital Fund Management, L.L.C. (“Veritas”) and Evergreen Coast Capital (“Evergreen”). Capitalized terms not otherwise defined have the meaning set forth in the Merger Agreement. The description of the Merger Agreement and related transactions (including, without limitation, the Merger) in this Form 8-K does not purport to be complete and is subject, and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 13, 2018 and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 1.02.      Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information set forth in the Introduction and under Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

Effective as of February 11, 2019 and contingent upon the consummation of the Merger, the Company terminated the athenahealth 2007 Employee Stock Purchase Plan.

As previously disclosed, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement, dated as of May 10, 2013 (as amended, restated, modified, or supplemented from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), among the Company, Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and certain other lenders thereto. A copy of the Credit Agreement was filed as Exhibit 10.19 to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 23, 2015.

In connection with the consummation of the Merger, the Company repaid all outstanding obligations in respect of principal, interest and fees and, effective as of the Closing Date, terminated all applicable commitments under the Credit Agreement.

Item 2.01.      Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

The information set forth in the Introduction of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

On the Closing Date, at the Effective Time, each share of common stock of the Company, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, subject to certain exceptions, was cancelled and extinguished and automatically converted into the right to receive cash in an amount equal to $135.00, net of applicable withholding taxes and without interest (the “Merger Consideration”).

In addition, at the Effective Time, with respect to each outstanding option to purchase Shares (each, a “Company Option”), under the Company’s 2007 Stock Option and Incentive Plan and the Company’s 2010 Equity Incentive Plan (collectively, the “Company Stock Plans”), whether vested or unvested, (i) if the exercise price of such Company Option was equal to or greater than the Merger Consideration, such Company Option was terminated and cancelled as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, without any consideration being paid in respect thereof, and has no further force or effect, and (ii) if the exercise price of such Company Option was less than the Merger Consideration, such Company Option was terminated and cancelled as of immediately prior to the Effective Time in exchange for the right to receive a lump sum cash payment in the amount equal to (A) the number of Shares underlying the Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time, multiplied by (B) the Merger Consideration minus the applicable exercise price.

Each outstanding restricted stock unit (each, a “Company Restricted Stock Unit”) that was granted under the Company Stock Plans that was outstanding or payable as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, was terminated and cancelled as of immediately prior to the Effective Time in exchange for the right to receive a lump sum cash payment equal to (i) the number of Shares underlying such Company Restricted Stock Unit, multiplied by (ii) the Merger Consideration.

Each outstanding performance restricted stock unit (each, a “Company Performance Stock Unit”) that was granted under the Company Stock Plans that was outstanding or payable as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, was terminated and cancelled as of immediately prior to the Effective Time in exchange for the right to receive a lump





sum cash payment equal to (i) with respect to Company Performance Stock Units for which the period during which the performance vesting requirement is measured has been completed, (A) the number of Shares subject to such Company Performance Stock Unit that vested based on the actual level of achievement as of the Effective Time multiplied by (B) the Merger Consideration, and (ii) with respect to Company Performance Stock Units for which the period during which the performance vesting requirement is measured has not been completed, (A) the number of Shares subject to such Company Performance Stock Unit that vested based on the applicable target level of achievement multiplied by (B) the Merger Consideration.

The description of the Merger set forth above does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which was filed by the Company as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 13, 2018.

The Company requested that NASDAQ suspend its Shares on the Closing Date, and as a result, trading of the Shares on NASDAQ will be suspended following the closing of trading on the Closing Date. The Company also requested that NASDAQ file a notification of removal from listing and registration on Form 25 with the SEC to effect the delisting of its Shares from NASDAQ and the deregistration of the Shares under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).
