Supplemental Disclosures to the Proxy Statement
As previously disclosed, on August 6, 2021, Intersect ENT, Inc. (“Intersect ENT”), Medtronic, Inc. (“Medtronic”) and Project Kraken Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into Intersect ENT, with Intersect ENT surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Medtronic (the “Merger”).
This Schedule 14A (this “Schedule 14A”) is being filed to update and supplement the definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) filed by Intersect ENT with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 7, 2021, and sent by Intersect ENT to its stockholders commencing on September 7, 2021. The information contained in this Schedule 14A is incorporated by reference into the Proxy Statement. Terms used in this Schedule 14A, but not otherwise defined, shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Proxy Statement.
Following the announcement of the Merger Agreement and as of the date of this Schedule 14A, seven lawsuits have been filed by alleged stockholders of Intersect ENT challenging the Merger.
Intersect ENT and the other named defendants deny that they have violated any laws or breached any duties to Intersect ENT’s stockholders and believe that these lawsuits are without merit and that no supplemental disclosure is required to the Proxy Statement under any applicable law, rule or regulation. However, solely to eliminate the burden and expense of litigation and to avoid any possible disruption to the Merger that could result from further litigation, Intersect ENT is providing the supplemental disclosures set forth in this Schedule 14A. The supplemental information contained in this Schedule 14A should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement, which we urge you to read in its entirety. Nothing in this Schedule 14A shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable laws of any of the disclosures set forth herein. To the extent that information in this Schedule 14A differs from, or updates information contained in, the Proxy Statement, the information in this Schedule 14A shall supersede or supplement the information in the Proxy Statement. Except as otherwise described in this Schedule 14A or the documents referred to, contained in or incorporated by reference in this Schedule 14A, the Proxy Statement, the annexes to the Proxy Statement and the documents referred to, contained in or incorporated by reference in the Proxy Statement are not otherwise modified, supplemented or amended.
If you have not already submitted a proxy for use at the Intersect ENT virtual special meeting, you are urged to do so promptly. This Schedule 14A does not affect the validity of any proxy card or voting instructions that Intersect ENT stockholders may have previously received or delivered. No action is required by any Intersect ENT stockholder who has previously delivered a proxy or voting instructions and who does not wish to revoke or change that proxy or voting instructions.
All page references are to pages in the Proxy Statement as filed by Intersect ENT with the SEC pursuant to Rule 14(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, on September 7, 2021, and terms used below, unless otherwise defined, have the meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement.
1.    The following disclosure is added as a new paragraph under the section entitled “Future Arrangements with Parent” on page 37 as follows:
“As of the date of this Proxy Statement, to the Company’s knowledge, none of our executive officers has had discussions with, or entered into any agreement, arrangement, or understanding with Parent or any of its affiliates regarding employment with, or the right to purchase or participate in the equity of, the Surviving Corporation or one or more of its affiliates. Although such arrangements have not, to the Company’s knowledge, been discussed as of this Proxy Statement, it is possible that certain of our executive officers may have discussions and may enter into agreements, arrangements, or understandings with Parent or Merger Sub, their subsidiaries or their respective affiliates regarding employment with, or the right to purchase or participate in the equity of, the Surviving Corporation or one or more of its affiliates. The Merger is not conditioned upon any executive officer of the Company entering into any such agreement, arrangement or understanding.”

2.    The following disclosure amends and replaces the disclosures that previously appeared under the sections entitled “Legal Proceedings” on pages 8 and 51 as follows:
“Subsequent to the filing of the Preliminary Proxy Statement on August 27, 2021 and/or the Proxy Statement, seven civil actions were filed challenging the adequacy of certain public disclosures made by the Company concerning the Company’s proposed transaction with Medtronic. On September 1, 2021, Elaine Wang, a purported stockholder of the Company, commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, captioned Elaine Wang v. Intersect ENT, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:21-cv-7348, against the Company and current members of its board of directors (the “Wang Complaint”). On September 9, 2021, Marc Waterman, a purported stockholder of the Company, commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, captioned Marc Waterman v. Intersect ENT, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:21-cv-7552, against the Company and current members of its board of directors (the “Waterman Complaint”). On September 15, 2021, Carla Lawson, a purported stockholder of the Company, commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, captioned Carla Lawson v. Intersect ENT, Inc., et al., Case No. 3:21-cv-7150, against the Company, five members of its current board of directors, and one former member of its board of directors (the “Lawson Complaint”). On September 22, 2021, Brian Jones, a purported stockholder of the Company commenced an action in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, captioned Brian Jones v. Intersect ENT, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:21-cv-1339, against the Company and current members of its board of directors (the “Jones Complaint”). On September 23, 2021, two other purported stockholders of the Company filed lawsuits against the Company and current members of its board of directors: Richard Lawrence commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, captioned Richard Lawrence v. Intersect ENT, Inc., et al., Case No. 3:21-cv-7405 (the “Lawrence Complaint”); and Alex Ciccotelli commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, captioned Alex Ciccotelli v. Intersect ENT, Inc., et al., Case 2:21-cv-4202 (the “Ciccotelli Complaint”). On September 28, 2021, Michael Kent, a purported stockholder of the Company, commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, captioned Michael Kent v. Intersect ENT, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:21-cv-8066, against the Company and current members of its board of directors (the “Kent Complaint,” collectively with the Wang Complaint, Waterman Complaint, Lawson Complaint, Jones Complaint, Lawrence Complaint and Ciccotelli Complaint, the “Complaints”). The Complaints assert claims under Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and seek, among other things, an injunction preventing consummation of the proposed transaction with Medtronic, rescission of the proposed transaction or rescissory damages in the event it is consummated, declaratory relief, an accounting by the defendants for all damages caused to the plaintiffs, and the award of attorneys’ fees and expenses. The Company and the current members of its board named in the lawsuits have been served with the Wang Complaint, Lawson Complaint, Jones Complaint, and Lawrence Complaint, but have not been served with the Waterman Complaint, Ciccotelli Complaint or Kent Complaint. Defendants believe the claims asserted in the Complaints are without merit, deny any wrongdoing in connection with the filing of this Proxy Statement, and intend to vigorously defend against the claims.”
