April 17, 2024: Vanda Pharmaceuticals announced that it rejected the unsolicited takeover proposals from Future Pak. The Vanda Board carefully reviewed the conditional proposals and unanimously concluded that they are not in the best interests of the company and its shareholders, as they significantly undervalue the company.

April 19, 2024: Butler Hall Capital issued an open letter to Vanda’s board asking them to immediately form an independent special committee to engage with Future Pak and run a full sales process to achieve the highest value for shareholders, and to discuss the takeover deal for the company further.

May 7, 2024: Future Pak increased its offer for Vanda Pharmaceuticals (VNDA) to include Contingent Value Rights (CVRs) in addition to the cash consideration of $7.25 to $7.75 per share, representing a potential increase of approximately $4.37 per share. The increased offer includes up to $260 million of potential CVR payments.
