Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and E


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Arrangement Agreement

On November 5, 2013, Endo Health Solutions Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Endo"), entered into an Arrangement Agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement"), among Endo, Sportwell Limited, a company incorporated in Ireland ("New Endo"), Sportwell II Limited, a company incorporated in Ireland, ULU Acquisition Corp., a corporation organized in Delaware ("DE Inc."), RDS Merger Sub, LLC, a limited liability company organized in Delaware and a wholly owned subsidiary of New Endo ("Merger Sub"), 8312214 Canada Inc., a corporation incorporated under the laws of Canada, and Paladin Labs Inc., a corporation incorporated under the laws of Canada ("Paladin"). Under the terms of the Arrangement Agreement, (a) New Endo will acquire Paladin pursuant to a plan of arrangement under Canadian law (the "Arrangement") and (b) Merger Sub will merge with and into Endo, with Endo as the surviving corporation in the merger (the "Merger" and, together with the Arrangement, the "Transactions"). As a result of the Transactions, both Endo and Paladin will become wholly owned subsidiaries of New Endo.

At the effective time of the Arrangement, (a) Paladin shareholders will be entitled to receive $1.16 (CAD) in cash, 1.6331 newly issued New Endo ordinary shares and 1 ordinary share of Knight Therapeutics Inc., a corporation to be incorporated under the laws of Canada as a subsidiary of Paladin, in exchange for each Paladin share held by such shareholders; and (b) Paladin equity awards will be settled on a cash-less exercise basis for New Endo ordinary shares in an amount reflecting the Arrangement consideration.

The cash consideration to be received by Paladin shareholders will be increased if Endo's volume weighted average share price during an agreed reference period declines more than 7%. Cash compensation will be provided by Endo to Paladin shareholders if the share price declines more than 7% but less than 20%. If Endo's share price declines between 20% and 24% during the agreed reference period, Endo will provide partial cash compensation to Paladin shareholders. Any decline in Endo's share price beyond 24% will not be subject to further cash compensation to Paladin shareholders. The maximum amount by which the aggregate cash consideration to be received by Paladin shareholders would be increased by this price protection mechanism is approximately $233 million. The Merger shall become immediately effective following the effectiveness of the Arrangement, to the extent possible.

At the effective time of the Merger, (a) each share of Endo common stock will be converted into the right to receive one New Endo ordinary share; and (b) each Endo share option, restricted share award and other Endo share-based award that is outstanding will be converted into the right to receive an equity award from New Endo, which award shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as were applicable to the Endo award in respect of which it was issued.

The implementation of the Arrangement is conditioned upon, among other things:

the approval by Paladin shareholders of the Arrangement at a special meeting of Paladin shareholders;

the approval by the Endo shareholders of the Merger at a meeting of the Endo shareholders;

the approval by the NASDAQ Global Select Market for listing (subject only to official notice of issuance) and the conditional approval by the Toronto Stock Exchange (subject only to customary listing conditions) of the New Endo shares to be issued in the Merger and the Arrangement;



all required regulatory clearances being obtained and remaining in full force and effect and applicable waiting periods have expired or been terminated, in each case without the imposition of any restraint;

no governmental authority enacting a law or order that prevents the consummation of the Transactions or instituting a proceeding to prohibit consummation of the Transactions; and

the Registration Statement on Form S-4 to be filed by Endo with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Transactions having become effective and not being the subject of any stop order.

In addition, each party's obligations to effect the Transactions is conditioned upon, among other things:

the accuracy of the other party's representations and warranties in the Arrangement Agreement, subject to specified materiality standards; and

the performance by the other party of its obligations under the Arrangement Agreement in all material respects.

Endo's obligation to effect the Transactions is further conditional upon its receipt of a legal opinion to the effect that Section 7874 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and the regulations promulgated thereunder should not apply in such a manner so as to cause New Endo to be treated as a domestic corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes from and after the closing date of the Arrangement and Merger.

Pursuant to the Arrangement Agreement, effective as of the closing of the Transactions, the directors of Merger Sub immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger shall be the directors of Endo, as the surviving company of the Merger.

The Arrangement Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants by Endo and Paladin. Endo and Paladin have each agreed, among other things, subject to certain exceptions, not to solicit any offer or proposal for specified alternative transactions, or to participate in discussions regarding such an offer or proposal with any third party, or to accept or enter into any agreements relating to, or that would reasonably be expected to lead to, such an offer or proposal. In addition, certain covenants require each of the parties to use, subject to the terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement, commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Transactions to be consummated as promptly as possible and to take all steps necessary to divest or dispose of businesses or assets as may be required by a governmental authority, unless doing so would reasonably be expected to be material and adverse to Paladin and its subsidiaries and to Endo and its subsidiaries. Subject to certain exceptions, the Arrangement Agreement also requires each of Endo and Paladin to call and hold shareholders' meetings and requires the boards of directors of Endo and Paladin to recommend approval of the adoption of the Arrangement Agreement, subject to each of Endo's and Paladin's board of directors' right to change its recommendation in connection with a "Paladin Superior Proposal" or "Parent Superior Proposal" (each as defined in the Arrangement Agreement), as the case may be.

The Arrangement Agreement contains certain customary termination rights, including, among others, the right of either Endo or Paladin to terminate the Arrangement Agreement (a) if its shareholders or the shareholders of the other party fail to approve the Merger or Arrangement,


respectively, (b) if the board of directors of the other party changes its recommendation to approve the Merger or Arrangement, respectively, (c) to enter into an agreement providing for a "Company Superior Proposal" or "Parent Superior Proposal," each as defined in the Arrangement Agreement, respectively,
(d) if the Transactions shall not have become effective by the date that is six months after the date of the Arrangement Agreement (the "Outside Date"), subject to certain conditions, (e) due to a material breach by the other party of any of its representations, warranties or covenants, subject to certain conditions and
(f) upon a "Material Adverse Effect" of the other party.

The Arrangement Agreement also provides that a termination fee of $60 million (CAD) (the "Termination Fee") is payable by Paladin in certain circumstances, including if Paladin terminates the Arrangement Agreement to enter into an agreement that constitutes a "Paladin Superior Proposal." The Termination Fee is also payable by Endo in certain circumstances, including if Endo terminates the Arrangement Agreement to enter into an agreement that constitutes a "Parent Superior Proposal" or if Paladin terminates the Arrangement Agreement because the board of directors of Endo has changed its recommendation that Endo shareholders approve the Merger.

The foregoing description of the Arrangement Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Arrangement Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

Voting Agreements

In connection with the Arrangement Agreement, on November 5, 2013, Endo entered into Voting Agreements (the "Voting Agreements") with certain shareholders of Paladin (the "Shareholders") holding in the aggregate approximately 34% of Paladin's outstanding shares. Pursuant to the terms of the Voting Agreements, the Shareholders have agreed in their capacities as Paladin shareholders, among other things: (i) to vote their shares in favor of the adoption of the Arrangement Agreement and against any alternative transaction, (ii) not to transfer any shares of Paladin subject to their respective Voting Agreements, subject to certain exceptions and (iii) not to exercise appraisal or dissent rights in connection with the Arrangement or transactions contemplated by the Arrangement Agreement. The Shareholders have the right to terminate the Voting Agreement if Endo's volume weighted average share price declines more than 24% during an agreed reference period.

The Voting Agreements will terminate on the earlier of the consummation of the Transactions and the date that the Arrangement Agreement is terminated.

The foregoing description of the Voting Agreements is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Voting Agreements, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 hereto and are incorporated herein by reference.

Debt Commitment Letter

In connection with the Transactions, Endo has entered into a debt commitment letter (the "Commitment Letter") pursuant to which Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch and Royal Bank of Canada have, among other things, agreed to provide (i) a senior secured term loan "A" facility in an aggregate principal amount of $1,100.0 million; (ii) a senior secured term loan "B" facility in an aggregate principal amount of $750.0 million; (iii) a senior secured revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of $750.0 million; and (iv) an unsecured senior bridge facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $1,300.0 million (collectively, the "Debt Financing"). The funding of the Debt Financing is contingent on the closing of the Arrangement and certain other conditions set forth in the Commitment Letter. The funding of the Debt Financing is not a condition to the obligations of New Endo or Paladin under the terms of the Arrangement Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Commitment Letter is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Commitment Letter, which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
