Item 8.01                                           Other Events


On June 27, 2018, Richard Scarantino and Australia A. Hoover filed separate putative class action lawsuits in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, each purportedly on behalf of the stockholders of SteadyMed Ltd., against SteadyMed and its directors, alleging, among other things, violations of sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rule 14a-9 thereunder. The complaints each seek, among other things, to enjoin the defendants from completing the previously announced proposed merger transaction by which Daniel 24043 Acquisition Corp. Ltd. will merge with and into SteadyMed, making SteadyMed a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Therapeutics Corporation.


SteadyMed and its directors believe that the suits lack merit and intend to take all appropriate actions to defend against them.


It is possible that additional similar complaints may be filed in the future. If this does occur, SteadyMed does not intend to announce the filing of any similar complaints.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
