NEW YORK June 13, 2024– Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP advised Ono Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., a Japanese company (kabushiki kaisha), on the completion of the tender offer announced April 30 to acquire all outstanding shares of common stock of U.S. biopharmaceutical company Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: DCPH) for $25.60 per share, with a total amount of approximately $2.4 billion, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Topaz Merger Sub, Inc. The tender offer commenced May 13 and was completed just before the June 10 deadline.
