Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On February 18, 2011, in connection with the Merger (as defined in Item 5.01 below) effected pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 14, 2010 (the Merger Agreement), among Matrixx Initiatives, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company), Wonder Holdings Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (Parent), and Wonder Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (Purchaser), the Company notified The NASDAQ Stock Market, LLC (NASDAQ) of its intent to remove its common stock from listing on the NASDAQ Global Select Market and requested NASDAQ file a Notification of Removal from Listing and/or Registration on Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) to delist and deregister its shares of common stock (Shares). The Company intends to file with the SEC a Form 15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), requesting the deregistration of the Shares and the suspension of the Companys reporting obligations under Section 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act. Trading of the Companys Shares on the NASDAQ Global Select Market was suspended as of the closing of trading on February 18, 2011.
Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On February 18, 2011, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Purchaser exercised its top-up option to purchase (the Top-Up Option), at a per share price equal to the Offer Price (as defined in Item 5.01 below), 19,785,355 newly issued shares of the Companys common stock (the Top-Up Shares), in exchange for an amount in cash equal to the aggregate par value of the Top-Up Shares and an unsecured, non-negotiable and non-transferable promissory note issued by Purchaser and Parent to the Company in the aggregate principal amount of $173,072,070.89, bearing interest at 5% per annum, with principal and interest due one year after the purchase of the Top-Up Shares, prepayable without premium or penalty. The Top-Up Shares brought Purchasers ownership of the Companys common stock, when combined with the Shares acquired by Purchaser in the Offer (as defined in Item 5.01 below), to more than 90% of the Shares outstanding after such purchase. The Top-Up Shares were issued without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), in reliance upon an exemption from registration pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act, as a transaction by an issuer not involving a public offering.
Item 3.03. Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
The information set forth in Items 3.01 and 5.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 5.01. Changes in Control of Registrant.
As previously disclosed, pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Purchaser commenced a cash tender offer on December 22, 2010 to acquire all of the Companys Shares for a purchase price (the Offer Price) of $8.00 per share in cash, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated December 22, 2010, as amended and supplemented (the Offer to Purchase), and in the related Letter of Transmittal (which, together with the Offer to Purchase, as amended and supplemented, constitute the Offer). The Offer Price was increased to $8.75 per Share on February 1, 2011. Parent is controlled by H.I.G. Capital, LLC (H.I.G.).
Following the initial expiration of the Offer on February 14, 2011 at 11:59 p.m., New York City Time, Purchaser accepted (such time of acceptance, the Acceptance Time) for payment all 6,525,546 Shares (including 211,814 Shares tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures set forth in the Offer to Purchase) validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer according to the terms and conditions of the Offer. The tendered and purchased Shares (not including Shares tendered pursuant to guaranteed delivery procedures) represented approximately 66.9% of the outstanding Shares of the Company. Upon the acceptance of the Shares for payment tendered pursuant to the Offer as of the Acceptance Time, on February 15, 2011, a change of control of the Company occurred.
On February 15, 2011, in accordance with the Merger Agreement, Purchaser commenced a subsequent offering period to acquire all remaining untendered Shares, which expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City Time, on
February 17, 2011 (the Subsequent Offer Expiration Time). Following the Subsequent Offer Expiration Time, Purchaser accepted, to the extent it had not already done so, all 6,606,328 Shares that had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn during the initial offering period and the subsequent offering period.
On February 18, 2011, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, following the exercise of the Top-Up Option, Purchaser was merged with and into the Company (the Merger) in accordance with applicable provisions of Delaware law that authorize the completion of the Merger without a vote or meeting of stockholders of the Company. In connection with the Merger, each outstanding Share not tendered in the Offer (other than treasury Shares, Shares held by Parent, Purchaser or any of their subsidiaries or Shares held by stockholders who properly exercise appraisal rights under applicable provisions of Delaware law) was converted into the right to receive the Offer Price. Following the consummation of the Merger, the Company continued as the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.
The total amount of the consideration payable in connection with the change of control transaction was approximately $83 million. The funds used to consummate the Offer and the Merger were a combination of equity contributions from affiliates of H.I.G. and loans from the Bank of Montreal.
To the knowledge of the Company, except as set forth herein, there are no arrangements, including any pledge by any person of securities of the Company or Parent, the operation of which may at a subsequent date result in a further change in control of the Company. In addition, the Merger Agreement includes provisions relating to the election of directors to the Board of Directors of the Company (the Board).
The foregoing summary of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Merger Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Form 8-K filed by the Company with the SEC on December 14, 2010.

Each resigning director resigned pursuant to the provisions of the Merger Agreement and no director resigned from the Board because of any disagreements with the Company on any matter relating to the Companys operations, policies or practices. Information about Mr. Schwartz, Mr. Preston and Mr. McMullen was previously disclosed in the Information Statement comprising Annex I to the Companys Solicitation/Recommendation on Schedule 14D-9 originally filed by the Company with the SEC on December 22, 2010 and is incorporated herein by reference.
