Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 24, 2013, Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement"), by and among the Company, Amgen Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Parent") and Arena Acquisition Company, a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent ("Purchaser"), pursuant to which, among other things, Purchaser will commence a tender offer for all the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Shares"), subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement.

Merger Agreement

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, Purchaser will commence a cash tender offer (the "Offer") to purchase all of the outstanding Shares, at a purchase price of $125 per Share, net to the seller thereof in cash, without interest and less any required withholding taxes (the "Offer Price"). The Offer will remain open for a minimum of 20 business days from commencement, subject to possible extension on the terms set forth in the Merger Agreement. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, after the consummation of the Offer, and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Purchaser will be merged with and into the Company (the "Merger") and the separate corporate existence of Purchaser will cease at that time (the "Effective Time"). Following the consummation of the Merger, the Company will continue as the surviving corporation (the "Surviving Corporation") and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. At the Effective Time, each Share (other than any Shares owned by Parent or Purchaser, the Company or any wholly owned subsidiary thereof, and any Shares owned by stockholders who have properly exercised any available rights of appraisal under Section 262 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the "DGCL")) will be automatically converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Offer Price.

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, all stock options outstanding at the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested or exercisable or unexercisable, will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive (without interest) an amount in cash (less applicable tax withholdings) equal to (1) the excess, if any, of the Offer Price over the per Share exercise price of such option multiplied by the total number of Shares subject to such options for each stock option that is vested at the Effective Time, payable in a lump sum no later than the second payroll period after the Effective Time, and (2) the excess, if any, of the Offer Price over the per Share exercise price of such option multiplied by the total number of Shares subject to such options for each stock option that is unvested at the Effective Time, payable no later than the second payroll period after the applicable vesting date of such former option, provided that the unvested former option will remain subject to the same vesting schedule and other relevant terms as in effect immediately before the Effective Time and the holder of such former option must remain in service to Parent, the Company or any of their affiliates through the applicable vesting date to receive payment in respect thereof; provided, further, that any former option that, per its terms, remains outstanding and unvested as of December 15, 2013, shall vest on December 15, 2013 and be paid no later than December 31, 2013, or will vest in full earlier if the option holder's service to Parent, the Company or their affiliates terminates without "cause" or for "good reason" and be paid no later than the second payroll period after such termination.

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, all restricted stock units ("RSUs"), performance stock units ("PSUs") and all other award of any kind consisting of Shares (including any Shares subject to vesting restrictions and/or forfeiture or repurchase by the Company ("Stock Awards")) outstanding at the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive (without interest), an amount in cash (less applicable tax withholdings), payable in a lump sum no later than the second payroll period after the date such former RSU, PSU or Stock Award vests, equal to the product of the Offer Price and the number of Shares underlying such RSU, PSU or Stock Award, as applicable, immediately prior to the Effective Time; provided that any unvested RSU, PSU or Stock Award shall remain subject to the same vesting schedule and other relevant terms as in effect immediately before the Effective Time and the holder of such RSU, PSU or Stock Award must remain in service to Parent, the Company or any of their affiliates through the applicable vesting date to receive payment in respect thereof; provided, further, that any former RSU, PSU or Stock Award that, per its terms, remains outstanding and unvested as of December 15, 2013, will vest on December 15, 2013 and be paid no later than December 31, 2013, or will vest in full earlier if the RSU, PSU or Stock Award holder's service to Parent, the Company or their affiliates terminates without "cause" or for "good reason" and be paid no later than the second payroll period after such termination.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, any unvested option, RSU, PSU or Stock Award held by an individual who is a non-employee member of the board of directors of the Company at the Effective Time shall become vested and exercisable in full upon the Effective Time and entitle the holder thereof to the payment of the amounts described above, payable in a lump sum no later than the second payroll period after the Effective Time.

The Merger Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, Parent and Purchaser. Until the earlier of the termination of the Merger Agreement and the Effective Time, the Company has agreed to operate its business and the business of its subsidiaries in the ordinary course and in substantially the same manner as previously conducted and has agreed to certain other operating covenants, as set forth more fully in the Merger Agreement. The Company has also agreed (1) to cease all existing, and agreed not to solicit or initiate any additional, discussions with third parties regarding other proposals to acquire the Company and (2) to certain restrictions on its ability to respond to such proposals, subject to fulfillment of certain fiduciary requirements of the board of directors of the Company.

Purchaser's obligation to accept for payment and pay for Shares tendered in the Offer is subject to certain conditions, including, among other things, (i) that there shall have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the expiration date of the Offer that number of Shares that, when added to the Shares then owned by Purchaser, would represent one Share more than one-half (1/2) of the sum of (a) all Shares then outstanding plus (b) all Shares that the Company may be required to issue upon the vesting (including vesting solely as a result of the consummation of the Offer), conversion, settlement or exercise of all then outstanding warrants, options, benefit plans, obligations or securities convertible or exchangeable into Shares, or other rights to acquire or be issued Shares (including all then outstanding options, RSUs, PSUs, Stock Awards, Employee Stock Purchase Plan purchase rights and the Company's Convertible Senior Notes due 2016 (after giving effect to any Make-Whole Fundamental Change (as defined in the certain First Supplemental Indenture to the Indenture, dated as of August 12, 2009, under which the Convertible Senior Notes were issued and assuming conversions are settled in full in Shares), regardless of the conversion or exercise price or other terms and conditions thereof) and (ii) the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. Neither the Offer nor the Merger is subject to a financing condition. Parent plans to finance the transaction with $8.1 billion in committed bank financing and the balance with cash available in the U.S. Parent received financing commitments from Bank of America, N.A., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Barclays Bank PLC.

Following the completion of the Offer, and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to closing of the Merger set forth in the Merger Agreement, the parties will take such action to cause the Merger to become effective as soon as practicable in accordance with Section 251(h) of the DGCL with no stockholder vote required to consummate the Merger.

The Merger Agreement also includes customary termination provisions for both the Company and Parent and provides that, in connection with the termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, including by the Company to accept, and enter into a definitive agreement with respect to, an unsolicited, bona fide written proposal made by a third party after the date of the Merger Agreement pursuant to which such third party would acquire 80% or more of the . . .
