Last month, Tomy agreed to purchase RC2 in an all-cash deal valued at about $640 million.

Under terms of the deal, a Tomy subsidiary will offer to buy all outstanding shares of RC2 common stock for $27.90 a share.

A tender offer related to the transaction is set to expire on April 20th unless extended or ended earlier.
