The following supplements and amends the definitive consent statement, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 16, 2019 (the “Consent Statement”) by Caligan Partners LP (“Calligan”) in connection with its solicitation of written consents (the “Consent Solicitation”) from the stockholders of AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“AMAG” or the “Company”).
Except as described in this supplement, the information provided in the Consent Statement continues to apply and this supplement should be read in conjunction with the Consent Statement. To the extent the following information differs from, updates or conflicts with information contained in the Consent Statement, the supplemental information below is more current. Capitalized terms used herein, but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings set forth in the Consent Statement. If you need another copy of the Consent Statement, please contact our consent solicitor, D.F. King, toll free at (800) 252-8173, or banks and brokers may call collect at (212) 269-5550.
According to the Company’s Consent Revocation Statement, the Record Date for the Consent Solicitation has been fixed as the close of business on September 5, 2019. As of the Record Date, there were 33,909,783 shares of Common Stock outstanding, each of which is entitled to one vote on each Proposal. Therefore, the consent of the holders of at least 16,954,892 shares of Common Stock would be necessary to effect each of the Proposals.
Pursuant to Rule 14a-5(c), we have omitted from the Consent Statement certain disclosure required by applicable law to be included in the Company’s Consent Revocation Statement in connection with the Consent Solicitation. Such disclosure includes information regarding securities of the Company beneficially owned by the Company’s directors and management; certain stockholders’ beneficial ownership of more than 5% of the Company’s voting securities; information concerning the Company’s directors; information regarding the compensation of named executive officers and directors; and information concerning the procedures for submitting stockholder proposals and director nominations intended for consideration at the 2020 annual meeting of stockholders and for consideration for inclusion in the proxy materials for that meeting. With regards to such disclosure, we refer stockholders to the Consent Revocation Statement filed by the Company on Schedule 14A with the SEC on September 20, 2019. We take no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of information contained in the Company’s Consent Revocation Statement.
If you have already voted using the Company’s green consent revocation card, you have every right to change your vote by completing and mailing the enclosed WHITE consent card in the enclosed pre-paid envelope or by voting via Internet or by telephone by following the instructions on the WHITE consent card. If you take no action, you will in effect be rejecting the Proposals. Any consent or consent revocation may be revoked at any time prior to its delivery to the Company by following the instructions under “Can I change my consent instructions or cancel my revocation of consent?” in the Questions and Answers section of the Consent Statement, filed by Caligan with the SEC on September 16, 2019.
We urge you to sign, date and return the WHITE consent card to give “CONSENT” for ALL PROPOSALS.
