Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated October 18, 2012 (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among OPKO Health, Inc. (the “Company”), OPKO Laboratories, Inc., an Oklahoma corporation (“Merger Sub I”), OPKO Labs, LLC, a Florida limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub II” and together with Merger Sub I, the “Merger Subs”), Prost-Data, Inc., and Oklahoma corporation (“OURLab”), and Jonathan Oppenheimer, M.D., the sole shareholder of OURLab (the “Seller”), the Company acquired OURLab through a merger between OURLab and Merger Sub I (the “Merger”). As a result of the Merger, OURLab became a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Following the Merger, and upon receipt of certain regulatory and contractual consents, approval and licenses, the Company will merge OURLab with and into Merger Sub II, with Merger Sub II as the surviving entity. The merger consideration paid by the Company to the Seller consists of $9.4 million paid in cash at closing and $30.6 million paid in shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $.01 (“Common Stock”), based on the average closing sales price per share of the Company’s Common Stock as reported by the New York Stock exchange for the fifteen trading days immediately preceding the date of the Merger Agreement, or $4.33 per share. The transaction closed on December 17, 2012.

In connection with the transaction, the Company issued 5,340,646 shares of Common Stock to the Seller at closing and deposited an additional 1,732,102 shares of Common Stock into an escrow account to secure the indemnification obligations of the Seller under the Merger Agreement. The Common Stock was issued in reliance upon an exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to Section 4(2) thereof.
