Under the terms of the transaction, Ambit shareholders will receive only $15.00 in cash for each share of Ambit common stock they own. In addition, stockholders of Ambit will receive one Contingent Value Right (CVR) which will entitle the holder to receive an additional cash payment of up to $4.50 per share if certain milestones are reached. However, there is no guarantee that these milestones will ever be reached.

The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Ambit for not acting in the Company's shareholders best interests in connection with the sale process. The transaction may undervalue Ambit as the Company's drug candidate quizartinib is in late-stage trials for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, which made up 36% of all new leukemia cases in 2014. The transaction may also result in a loss for many long-term Ambit shareholders as Ambit stock traded at $18.29 on October 21, 2013 and an analyst has set a $17.00 per share price target for Ambit stock.
