Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 2, 2008, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (the “Company”) entered into a Stock and Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) to sell the Company’s ConvaTec business (the “Business”) to Cidron Healthcare Limited (the “Buyer”), an affiliate of Nordic Capital Fund VII (“Nordic Capital”) and Avista Capital Partners (“Avista”), for $4.1 billion in cash. The final purchase price is subject to adjustment based on (i) closing working capital of the Business and (ii) the amount (if greater than $1,500,000) by which EBITDA (as defined in the Agreement) as derived from the audited 2007 financial statements of the Business to be delivered by the Company between signing and closing is less than EBITDA as derived from the unaudited 2007 financial statements of the Business, multiplied by 11.5, up to a maximum such adjustment of $115,000,000. If EBITDA as derived from the audited 2007 financial statements of the Business is less than EBITDA as derived from the unaudited 2007 financial statements of the Business by more than $10,000,000, the Buyer may terminate the Agreement.

The sale of the Business will be effected through the transfer to the Buyer of (i) all of the outstanding capital stock of certain of the Company’s indirect subsidiaries and (ii) certain specified assets and liabilities of the Company and certain of its subsidiaries.

In the Agreement, the Company and the Buyer have made certain customary representations and warranties and have agreed to certain customary covenants. Specifically, (i) before the closing, the Company and its applicable subsidiaries will be subject to certain business conduct restrictions with respect to the Business and (ii) for three years following the closing, the Company will be prohibited from engaging in any business that competes in any material respect with the Business, subject to certain exceptions as described in the Agreement. The Agreement provides that the Company and the Buyer will indemnify each other for losses arising from certain breaches of the Agreement and for certain other liabilities.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2008, pending customary regulatory approvals (including in the United States and the European Union), delivery of the audited 2007 financial statements of the Business and satisfaction of certain other customary closing conditions. There is no financing condition to the obligations of the Buyer to consummate the transaction, and equity and debt commitments for the full purchase price are in place. The Buyer has entered into a fully committed loan agreement that provides for funding by the lenders thereunder, with no material conditions other than the conditions under the Agreement and customary conditions relating to the delivery of closing documents and financial information, as well as conditions related to the status of the Buyer. Nordic Capital and funds associated with Avista have severally guaranteed the obligations of the Buyer under the Agreement.

The Company and the Buyer have agreed to enter into related transaction agreements at the closing, including a transitional services agreement.

The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement itself, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

A copy of the press release announcing the transaction is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
