OPKO Health, Inc. announces that at a Special Shareholder Meeting held on August 25, 2016 shareholders of Transition Therapeutics, Inc. holding approximately 93% of the outstanding common shares, voted to approve the previously announced agreement under which OPKO Health will acquire Transition Therapeutics.

“We are pleased with this vote of confidence from the Transition Therapeutics shareholders as it underscores their confidence in our ability to leverage the potential of Transition Therapeutics’ clinical programs and the opportunity for shareholders of Transition Therapeutics to participate in the continued growth and development of OPKO’s strong pipeline,” said Phillip Frost, M.D., CEO and Chairman of OPKO Health. “This acquisition provides OPKO with two late stage drug candidates, each of which holds exceptional market potential and complements OPKO's development pipeline."
