21-Nov-2012

Changes in Control or Registrant, Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Other E


Item 5.01. Changes in Control of Registrant.

On November 21, 2012, Cynosure, Inc. (the "Company") completed a public offering pursuant to which the Company issued and sold 2,840,000 shares (240,000 of which were sold pursuant to the option of Leerink Swann LLC, as underwriter (the "Underwriter"), to purchase additional shares) of class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company ("Class A Common Stock"), and El.En. S.p.A., an Italian corporation, as selling stockholder (the "Selling Stockholder"), sold 840,000 shares (240,000 of which were sold pursuant to Underwriter's option to purchase additional shares) of Class A Common Stock. Immediately prior to the closing of the offering, the Selling Stockholder beneficially owned 2,938,628 shares of the Company's outstanding class B common stock, par value $0.001 per share ("Class B Common Stock"), which represented 99.98%, of the outstanding shares of the Class B Common Stock and approximately 22.09% of the Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock considered together as a single class.

The Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation provides that until the first date on which the Selling Stockholder beneficially owns less than 20% of the aggregate number of shares of the Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock outstanding or less than 50% of the number of shares of the Company's Class B Common Stock outstanding: (1) the holders of Class B Common Stock, voting separately as a single class, are entitled to elect the smallest number of directors which shall constitute a majority of the authorized number of directors of the Company (the "Class B Directors"); and (2) the holders of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock, voting together as a single class, are entitled to elect the remaining directors of the Company.

Immediately following the closing of the offering, the Selling Stockholder beneficially owned 2,098,628 shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock, considered together as a single class, representing approximately 12.98% of the Company's outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock, considered together as a single class. Accordingly, in connection with the closing of the offering, all of the outstanding shares of Class B Common Stock converted on a one-for-one basis into shares of Class A Common Stock. As a result, there are no shares of Class B Common Stock issued or outstanding, and the Company may not issue shares of Class B Common Stock in the future.

The closing date for the offering and the effective date of such conversion, each of which was November 21, 2012, constituted the "Class B Conversion Date" under the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation, and as of such date:
(1) the term of each of the Company's four Class B Directors (Brian Barefoot, Ettore Biagioni, Andrea Cangioli and Leonardo Masotti) ended and the Company's board of directors was reduced to three; (2) the number of authorized directors of the Company became subject to establishment exclusively by the Company's board of directors; and (3) the holders of Class A Common Stock, which is now the only class of the Company's capital stock outstanding, became entitled to elect all directors of the Company, and all of the Company's directors are classified directors. As a result, effective on the Class B Conversion Date, the Selling Stockholder no longer had the authority pursuant to the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation to elect a majority of the Company's directors.

On the Class B Conversion Date, the Company's remaining directors enlarged the size of the Company's board from three to six members, including three vacancies. The Company's remaining directors then filled those vacancies by electing Brian Barefoot as a Class I classified director with a term expiring in 2015, Ettore Biagioni as a Class III classified director with a term expiring in 2014, and Andrea Cangioli as a Class II classified director with a term expiring in 2013. Each of these individuals was a Class B Director of the Company prior to the Class B Conversion Date.

(d) As described above, on the Class B Conversion Date, the Company's board of directors elected Brian Barefoot as a Class I classified director with a term expiring in 2015, effective immediately.
