UPDATE: On January 30, 2014, Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company and Accelrys, Inc. announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement for Dassault Systèmes to acquire Accelrys. Under the terms and conditions of the merger agreement, Dassault Systèmes made an all-cash tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of Accelrys common stock. The tender offer statement and other documents filed by Dassault Systèmes and Accelrys with the SEC are available for free at the SEC’s website (http://www.sec.gov) and may be obtained at no charge by directing a request by mail to Innisfree M&A Incorporated, 501 Madison Avenue, 20th Floor, New York, New York, 10022 or by calling (888) 750-5834.

The tender offer process was completed on April 29, 2014. Accelrys filed Form 15 (Certification and Notice of Termination of Registration) with the SEC on May 9, meaning Accelrys is no longer publicly traded (and the company’s NASDAQ listing will shortly expire).    

Combining with Accelrys will enrich the molecular chemistry capabilities from discovery to manufacturing and regulatory requirements of Dassault Systèmes’ formulation-based industry offerings such as life sciences, consumer packaged goods, high tech and energy, as well as advanced manufacturing industries.

Accelrys will now become BIOVIA as part of Dassault Systèmes.
