Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On June 17, 2014, Volcano Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Volcano”), completed the acquisition of AtheroMed, Inc., a privately-held Delaware corporation (“AtheroMed”), pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger dated May 27, 2014 (the “Merger Agreement”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Athena Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Volcano, merged with and into AtheroMed (the “Merger”) with AtheroMed surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Volcano under the name Volcano AtheroMed, Inc. Volcano paid approximately $116.5 million in cash at the closing of the Merger (the “Closing Consideration”), which amount was partially offset by Volcano’s acquisition at the closing of approximately $1.7 million in cash. The Closing Consideration is subject to a post-closing net working capital adjustment. $11.5 million of the Closing Consideration was contributed to and remains subject to an escrow account established in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement to satisfy indemnification claims Volcano may have under the Merger Agreement for a period of 18 months. The Closing Consideration was funded by Volcano’s cash on hand.

In addition to the Closing Consideration, Volcano has agreed to potentially pay a post-closing cash payment of $15.0 million if FDA clearance of a premarket 510(k) notification is received on or before November 15, 2014 for AtheroMed’s second generation Phoenix Atherectomy System, $1.5 million of which would be contributable to the escrow account to satisfy indemnification claims. The Merger Agreement also provides for post-closing cash milestone payments based on commercial sales of specified products of AtheroMed (“AtheroMed Products”), and any product combining any AtheroMed Product with one or more other product, in calendar years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

A more detailed summary of the material terms of the Merger Agreement is set forth in Item 1.01 to Volcano’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 27, 2014. A redacted copy of the Merger Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1.
