This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment No. 1”) amends: (i) the Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Filing”), which was submitted for filing by Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (the “Company”) on  November 7, 2013 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) and designated a filing date of November 8, 2013.

For convenience and ease of reference, the Company is filing this Amendment No. 1 in its entirety with all applicable changes.  Except as stated herein, this Amendment No. 1 does not reflect events or transactions occurring after such filing date or modify or update those disclosures in the Original Filing that may have been affected by events or transactions occurring subsequent to such filing date.

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
Effective as of 12:01 a.m. on November 1, 2013, the previously announced spin-off of Harvard Apparatus Regenerative Technology, Inc. (“HART”) from Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (“Harvard Bioscience,” the “Company,” “our,” “us” or “we”) was completed.  HART became an independent company that operates the regenerative medicine business previously owned by Harvard Bioscience. The spin-off was completed through the distribution to Harvard Bioscience’s stockholders of record of all the shares of common stock of HART (the “Distribution”).  In the Distribution, Harvard Bioscience distributed to its stockholders one share of HART common stock for every four shares of Harvard Bioscience common stock outstanding as of the close of business of Harvard Bioscience on October 21, 2013, the record date for the Distribution. Fractional shares of HART common stock were not included in the distribution. Instead, Registrar & Transfer Company will aggregate fractional shares into whole shares, sell the whole shares in the open market and distribute the aggregate net cash proceeds of the sales pro rata to each holder who otherwise would have been entitled to receive a fractional share in the Distribution.
The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial statements of Harvard Bioscience and related notes thereto, derived from the historical financial statements of Harvard Bioscience and adjusted to give effect to the distribution of HART common stock to Harvard Bioscience’s stockholders, are attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.  Please see the disclosure set forth under Item 1.01 of Form 8-K filed by Harvard Bioscience with the SEC on November 6, 2013 regarding the spin-off and Distribution, which is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.01.
