On January 22, 2019, the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO defining the terms and conditions of the Option Exchange, whereby the Company was offering eligible employees and non-employee directors (“Eligible Option Holders”) the opportunity to exchange for new options covering a lesser number of shares of the Company's common stock (“Replacement Options”), at a ratio of four-for-three (the “Exchange Ratio”), any options issued by the Company prior to January 22, 2019 that were outstanding under its 2008 Plan that had an exercise price greater than the closing price per share of iBio’s common stock on the NYSE American on the grant date of the Replacement Options (“Eligible Exchange Options”), so that for each four shares of common stock subject to an Eligible Exchange Option, the Eligible Option Holder would receive a Replacement Option to purchase three shares of common stock under the 2018 Plan. On February 20, 2019, the completion date of the Option Exchange (the “Replacement Option Grant Date”), the Company canceled the options accepted for exchange and granted 874,310 Replacement Options in exchange for 1,165,750 options issued under the 2008 Plan.
