|•||Registration Statement No. 333-253897, originally filed with the SEC on March 5, 2021, relating to the registration of up to $300,000,000 of senior debt securities, subordinated debt securities, common stock, par value $0.001 per share, preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, warrants, subscription rights, depositary shares and units of the Company.|
On July 11, 2023, Berry Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Merger Sub”) and a wholly owned subsidiary of Astellas US Holding, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), completed its merger (the “Merger”) with and into IVERIC pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated April 28, 2023 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Parent, Merger Sub, IVERIC, and solely as provided by Section 8.10(b) of the Merger Agreement, Astellas Pharma Inc., a company organized under the laws of Japan.
