CuraGen announced in its Reports Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results report that in July 2009, CuraGen reached an agreement in principle and signed a memorandum of understanding to settle two shareholder class action lawsuits that had been filed in connection with the proposed merger between CuraGen Corporation and Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. The settlement is subject to documentation and court approval. While we continue to deny any wrongdoing or liability with respect to the claims asserted in the class action suits, unfortunately, the monthly costs of defending against these lawsuits far outweighed the benefits of continued litigation. Therefore, we have agreed to the terms of a settlement, which will include additional disclosure in the final proxy statement regarding the merger and, if approved by the court, a payment for the shareholder plaintiffs' attorneys' fees and expenses. Although we expect to have some increases to our initial projections of net cash at closing from the repurchase of debt at a discount as partial offsets, we now expect that the settlement payment and the monthly defense costs in connection with these class action suits will result in a decrease in the net cash at closing from our original projection of $54.5 million to between $53.5 and $54.0 million, commented Dr. Shannon.
