NOTE 12 SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

On October 18, 2012, we entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire Prost-Data, Inc., doing business as OURLab, a Nashville-based CLIA laboratory with 18 phlebotomy sites throughout the U.S. We believe OURLab provides us with a commercial platform to support the U.S. commercial launch of our panel of kallikrein biomarkers and associated algorithm (4Kscore) for the detection of prostate cancer. We agreed to pay an aggregate purchase price of $40.0 million, of which $9.4 million shall be payable in cash, and $30.6 million payable in shares of our Common Stock, subject to our ability to hold back up to $4.0 million of the cash otherwise payable at closing as escrow for potential indemnity claims.

On or around October 30, 2012, we received a letter from counsel to Optos making certain indemnity claims against us in connection with the sale of our instrumentation business. Refer to Note 6. It is too early to assess the likelihood of litigation in this matter or the probability of a favorable or unfavorable outcome. However, we do not currently believe this matter will have a material impact on our results of operations or financial condition.

On October 17, 2012 we completed the acquisition of a forty-five percent stake in a private Israeli company that produces a third-generation hepatitis B vaccine in its biologics manufacturing facility in Rehovot, Israel.

We have reviewed all subsequent events and transactions that occurred after the date of our September 30, 2012 consolidated balance sheet date, through the time of filing this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
