Roche purchases shares in tender offer for Anadys Pharmaceuticals

Roche (SWX: ROG.VX; RO.S; OTCQX; RHHBY) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Bryce Acquisition Corporation has accepted for payment all shares validly tendered pursuant to its tender offer for all outstanding shares of common stock of Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANDS) at $3.70 per share in cash.

As of the expiration of the tender offer, a total of approximately 54,532,568 shares of Anadys common stock were tendered and not withdrawn (including approximately 2,345,764  shares tendered by delivery of notices of guaranteed delivery), representing approximately 94% of Anadys's outstanding shares.

Roche intends to complete the acquisition of Anadys through a short-form merger without a vote or meeting of Anadys's shareholders. In the merger, all shares of Anadys not owned by Anadys, Roche or their respective wholly owned subsidiaries (other than shares as to which appraisal rights are validly exercised) will be converted into the right to receive the same cash consideration per share as was paid in the tender offer.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the statements contained in this press release are forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the expected consummation of the acquisition, which involves a number of risks and uncertainties including the satisfaction of closing conditions for the acquisition such as regulatory approval for the transaction, the tender of a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock of Anadys and the possibility that the transaction will not be completed. These statements are based on our current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections about our business and our industry, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our or our industry's results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future statements. We generally identify these statements by words or phrases such as "believe," "anticipate," "expect," "intend," "plan," "will," "may," "should," "estimate," "predict," "potential," "continue," or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. If underlying assumptions prove inaccurate or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results and the timing of events may differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements, and you should not place undue reliance on these statements. The information contained in this press release is as of November 23, 2011. We disclaim any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the period covered by this report or otherwise.
