Celladon to Merge with Eiger

 Celladon Corporation (Nasdaq:CLDN) and Eiger BioPharmaceuticals, Inc., a privately-held biopharmaceutical company, today announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which the stockholders of Eiger would become the majority owners of Celladon, and the operations of Celladon and Eiger would be combined. The proposed merger remains subject to certain conditions, including the approval of Celladon stockholders.  If approved, upon closing of the transaction, Celladon will be renamed Eiger BioPharmaceuticals, Inc.
An investor syndicate has committed to invest $39.5 million in the combined company including new investors HBM Healthcare Investments, RA Capital Management, Sabby Management, Sphera Global Healthcare, Perceptive Advisors and Monashee Capital Partners together with existing long-time Eiger stockholders, ViVo Capital and InterWest Partners.  Six million dollars of the financing has already been funded, and the remaining $33.5 million is expected to close contemporaneously with the completion of the proposed merger.  The total cash balance of the combined company upon the closing of the proposed merger and the financing is expected to be greater than $60 million.
The proposed merger will create a clinical-stage company with a diversified development portfolio of product candidates addressing novel targets for four distinct orphan diseases: Hepatitis Delta Virus, bariatric surgery-induced hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and lymphedema.


Current Share Structure:

Outstanding shares as of October 31, 2015 was 23,916,021

About the Proposed Merger

Existing Eiger stockholders as well as investors in the contemporaneous financing will receive newly issued shares of Celladon common stock in connection with the proposed merger.  Celladon is expected to issue approximately 85.0 million new shares of its common stock to Eiger stockholders and participants in the financing.  On a pro forma basis for the combined company, current Celladon shareholders are expected to own approximately 22%, current Eiger shareholders approximately 45% and the new Eiger investor syndicate approximately 33%, each on a fully-diluted basis.

The transaction has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies, and a majority of Eiger stockholders have agreed to vote in favor of the transaction. The proposed merger is expected to close in the first half of 2016, subject to the approval of the stockholders of each company as well as regulatory approval and other customary conditions.  The merger agreement contains further details with respect to the proposed merger.
