CALCULATION OF FILING FEE

 

Transaction Valuation*   Amount of Filing Fee**
$4,078,890,781.96   $529,440.02
 
*

Calculated solely for purposes of determining the filing fee. The calculation of the transaction value is determined by adding the sum of (i) 128,533,733 ordinary shares, par value €0.03 per share, of Wright Medical Group N.V. multiplied by the offer consideration of $30.75 per share, (ii) the net offer consideration for 8,963,533 outstanding stock options with an exercise price less than $30.75 per share (which is calculated by multiplying the number of shares underlying such outstanding stock options by an amount equal to $30.75 minus the weighted average exercise price for such stock options of $23.63 per share), (iii) 1,250,367 shares subject to issuance pursuant to restricted stock units, multiplied by the offer consideration of $30.75 per share and (iv) 787,296 shares subject to issuance pursuant to performance share units, multiplied by the offer consideration of $30.75 per share. The foregoing share figures have been provided by the issuer to the offeror and are as of December 11, 2019, the most recent practicable date.

 

**

The filing fee was calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Fee Rate Advisory #1 for Fiscal Year 2020, issued August 23, 2019, by multiplying the transaction value by 0.0001298.

This Amendment No. 8 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO initially filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on December 13, 2019 (together with any amendments and supplements thereto, the “Schedule TO”) in relation to the tender offer by Stryker B.V., a private company with limited liability (besloten vennootschap met beperkte aansprakelijkheid) organized under the laws of the Netherlands (“Purchaser”) and an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Stryker Corporation, a Michigan corporation (“Stryker”), for all outstanding ordinary shares, par value €0.03 per share (the “Shares”), of Wright Medical Group N.V., a public limited liability company (naamloze vennootschap) organized under the laws of the Netherlands registered with the trade register in the Netherlands under file number 34250781 (“Wright”) at a price of $30.75 per Share, without interest and less applicable withholding taxes, to the holders thereof, payable in cash, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase dated December 13, 2019 (together with any amendments and supplements thereto, the “Offer to Purchase”), a copy of which is attached as Exhibit (a)(1)(A) to the Schedule TO, and in the related letter of transmittal (together with any amendments and supplements thereto, the “Letter of Transmittal”), a copy of which is attached as Exhibit (a)(1)(B) to the Schedule TO, which, together with any other related materials, as each may be amended or supplemented from time to time, collectively constitute the “Offer.”

All information contained in the Offer to Purchase and the Letter of Transmittal, including all schedules thereto, is hereby incorporated by reference into all of the applicable items in the Schedule TO, except that such information is amended and supplemented to the extent specifically provided in this Amendment. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined in this Amendment shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Offer to Purchase or in the Schedule TO.

 

Item 11.

Additional Information.

Item 11 of the Schedule TO is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

The disclosure under the heading “Foreign Competition Law Filings” in Section 16—“Certain Legal Matters; Regulatory Approvals” of the Offer to Purchase is hereby amended and supplemented by replacing the last paragraph under such heading with the following:

On June 30, 2020, the UK Competition and Markets Authority (the “CMA”) announced its Phase 1 decision. The CMA determined that the acquisition could result in a substantial lessening of competition in the supply of total ankle replacement prosthesis products in the United Kingdom and will be referred for a Phase 2 investigation unless the parties offered acceptable undertakings to address the identified concern. The deadline to propose undertakings was July 7, 2020. On July 7, 2020, Stryker proposed undertakings providing for the divestiture of its STAR total ankle replacement product. On July 14, 2020, the CMA announced that there are reasonable grounds for believing that the undertakings offered by Stryker, or a modified version of them, might be accepted by the CMA. Accordingly, in lieu of a Phase 2 investigation, the CMA will consider the proposed undertakings.
