This Amendment No. 2 (this Amendment) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on June 13, 2012 (together with any amendments and supplements thereto, the Schedule TO) by Synergy Health US Holdings Limited (Parent), a private limited company incorporated in England and Wales, and SHM Acquisition, Inc. (Purchaser), a Florida corporation and a wholly-owned, direct subsidiary of Parent. This Schedule TO relates to the tender offer by Purchaser for all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of SRI/Surgical Express, Inc. (SRI), a Florida corporation, and the associated stock purchase rights distributed to SRIs shareholders pursuant to the Rights Agreement, dated as of November 5, 2010, between SRI and Registrar and Transfer Company, as amended (collectively with such shares of common stock, the Shares) at a purchase price of $3.70 per Share, in cash, net to the seller, without interest and subject to any required withholding taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase, dated June 13, 2012 (as it may be amended or supplemented, the Offer to Purchase), and the related letter of transmittal (as it may be amended or supplemented, the Letter of Transmittal, and together with the Offer to Purchase, the Offer), copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits (a)(1)(A) and (a)(1)(B), respectively.
As permitted by General Instruction F to Schedule TO, the information set forth in the Schedule TO, as amended by this Amendment, including all appendices, schedules, exhibits and annexes hereto and thereto, is hereby expressly incorporated by reference herein in response to Items 1 through 12 of the Schedule TO. You should read this Amendment together with the Schedule TO. 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:
Section 16 of the Offer to Purchase entitled Certain Legal Matters; Regulatory Approvals, incorporated by reference into Section (a)(5) of Item 11 of the Schedule TO, is hereby amended and supplemented by inserting after the last paragraph thereof the following:
Legal Proceedings. On June 19, 2012, the Purchaser became aware of a purported class action lawsuit filed on June 13, 2012 in the Circuit Court of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in and for Hillsborough County, Florida, captioned Patrick McDermott v. Charles Federico, et al. (Uniform Case No. 292012CA009741A001HC) against SRI, the members of the SRI Board, and Purchaser. The plaintiff in this action purports to sue on behalf of a class of shareholders of SRI and alleges breach of fiduciary duty against the individual defendants because, among other reasons, in connection with the Transactions they (i) failed to take steps to maximize the value of SRI to its public shareholders and took steps to avoid competitive bidding, and (ii) failed to properly value SRI. The suit further alleges that Purchaser and SRI, together with Parent and Synergy Health plc (as related non-parties), aided and abetted the alleged wrongful acts of the individual defendants. The suit seeks, among others, injunctive relief and attorneys fees and costs.
Purchaser and Parent believe that the Patrick McDermott suit is without merit and anticipate that they will vigorously defend against such action.
After due inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
