We remain focused on developing treatments that make a meaningful impact on the lives of patients suffering from rare diseases. " Prior to the merger, Trimeris effected a 1-for-5 reverse stock split of its outstanding common stock. After giving effect to the reverse stock split, each former share of Synageva (on an as converted basis) was converted into the right to receive approximately 0.413 shares of the combined company's common stock.
