Satisfaction and Discharge of 12 ¾% Senior Notes due 2016
On April 18, 2012, Aptalis Pharma Inc. (the Company) satisfied and discharged the indenture governing their outstanding 12 3/4% Senior Notes due 2016 (the Notes). The Companys principal source of funds for the satisfaction and discharge was cash on hand, together with borrowings under a new tranche of term loans pursuant to an amendment to the Companys senior secured credit facilities effective as of April 18, 2012.
Discontinuation of Public Filings
On December 17, 2009, when the Company filed its Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), it became a voluntary filer with the SEC as a means to communicate financial results to holders of the Notes. As a result of the Companys entering into a supplemental indenture that eliminates any requirement to be a voluntary filer, and the satisfaction and discharge of the indenture governing all the Companys outstanding Notes, the Company will no longer file quarterly or annual reports with the SEC.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
