The tender offer expired at 11:59 p.m. (EST) on 7 December 2017.

The aggregate cost of this purchase is $64,999,989.60, excluding fees and expenses relating to the tender offer. A total of 5,116,818 Tetragon non-voting shares were properly tendered and not withdrawn at or below the purchase price of $13.60 per share. Because more than $65,000,000 in value of Tetragon non-voting shares was properly tendered and not properly withdrawn, the tender offer was subject to proration pursuant to the terms of the tender offer, with appropriate adjustments to avoid purchases of fractional shares. The final proration factor for the tender offer is 93.41%, rounded to the second decimal place.1

The Tetragon Master Fund will promptly make payment for the shares validly tendered and accepted for purchase, which is expected to occur on or about 14 December 2017. All shares tendered and not purchased in the tender offer will be promptly returned to the tendering shareholders.
