As quoted in the press release:

The tender offer by a subsidiary of Mallinckrodt plc for all of the outstanding shares of Cadence common stock expired as scheduled at 12:00 midnight (EDT) on March 18, 2014. Excluding Cadence shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery, a total of 78,396,180 shares of Cadence common stock, representing approximately 87.9% of Cadence’s outstanding shares, were validly tendered into and not validly withdrawn from the tender offer, according to the depositary for the tender offer. As a result, Mallinckrodt and its subsidiary have accepted for payment and will promptly pay for all shares that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn.

Following its acceptance of the shares tendered in the tender offer, Mallinckrodt caused the merger of its subsidiary with and into Cadence without a vote of Cadence’s other stockholders, pursuant to Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law. As a result of the completed merger, Cadence became an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Mallinckrodt. In connection with the merger, all Cadence shares not validly tendered into the tender offer have been cancelled and converted into the right to receive $14.00 per share, the same price per share offered in the tender offer. As a result of the acquisition, Cadence shares will cease to be traded on NASDAQ.
