ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), filed its definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 23, 2017, relating to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of February 13, 2017, by and among the Company, Allergan Holdco US, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”) and Blizzard Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger Agreement”), as a result of which Blizzard Merger Sub, Inc. will merge with and into the Company, with the Company surviving the merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”).

As previously disclosed in the Proxy Statement, on March 13, 2017, Michael Kreindler, a purported stockholder of the Company, filed a putative class action complaint against the Company and the Company’s board of directors in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (the “California District Court”), captioned Kreindler v. ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. , Case No. 17-cv-1353. On March 14, 2017, Paul Parshall, another purported stockholder of the Company, filed a putative class action complaint against the Company, the Company’s board of directors, Allergan plc, Parent and Blizzard Merger Sub, Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware (the “Delaware District Court”), captioned Parshall v. ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. , Case No. 17-cv-00270. The Company believes these claims are without merit and intends to vigorously defend these actions.

While the Company believes that the disclosures set forth in the Proxy Statement comply fully with applicable law, in order to moot plaintiffs’ unmeritorious disclosure claims, avoid nuisance and possible expense, and provide additional information to our stockholders, the Company has determined to voluntarily supplement the Proxy Statement as described in these Definitive Additional Materials. Nothing in these Definitive Additional Materials shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable laws of any of the disclosures set forth herein. To the contrary, the Company specifically denies all allegations in the litigation that any additional disclosure was or is required.

The disclosure under the heading “Background of the Merger” is hereby supplemented by appending the following disclosure to the sixth full paragraph on page 20 of the Proxy Statement:

  (1) Earnings (including the impact of stock based compensation expenses (treated as cash expense)) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT”), and adjusted EBITDA (“Adjusted EBITDA”) are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income as a measure of operating performance or cash flows or as a measure of liquidity.
  (2) Adjusted EBITDA includes add back of stock based compensation.
  (3) EBIT is equal to GAAP operating income, assuming that net other income (expense) is immaterial.
  (4) Net income is a GAAP financial measure. GAAP net income is yielded by adding net interest income or net other income (expense) to operating income and subtracting taxes. The calculation here assumes that the combined impact of net interest income and net other income (expense) is immaterial.
  (5) Free cash flows include impact of stock based compensation expenses (treated as cash expense).
