Item 8.01                      Other Events.

As previously announced, Trimble Navigation Limited (the “Company”) entered into a Combination Agreement (the “Combination Agreement”) with Tekla Corporation, a public limited company incorporated and existing under the laws of Finland with its sole class of equity listed on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki stock exchange (“Tekla”), pursuant to which the Company, indirectly through Trimble Finland Oy (“Trimble Finland”), the Company’s wholly-owned Finnish subsidiary, offered to acquire all of the outstanding shares in Tekla through a public tender offer (the “Tender Offer”), and, if necessary, through subsequent compulsory redemption proceedings in accordance with the Finnish Companies Act.

On June 30, 2011, Trimble Finland announced the conclusion of the Tender Offer which expired on June 27, 2011, 8:00 p.m. local Finnish time.  According to Nordea Corporate Finance, the depositary for the Tender Offer, as of the Tender Offer expiration, a total of 22,368,148 shares in Tekla were validly tendered and not properly withdrawn, representing approximately 99.46% of the outstanding shares in Tekla.  Since the Tender Offer has expired, no tendered shares in Tekla may be withdrawn from the Tender Offer.

In accordance with the terms of the Combination Agreement, on June 28, 2011, Tekla announced that it will pay an additional dividend of EUR 0.80 per share (the “Dividend”) (totaling EUR 17,996,800) on July 8, 2011 to each of its shareholders of record as of July 1, 2011.  Pursuant to the terms of the Combination Agreement, the Dividend will decrease the offer price to be paid by Trimble Finland in the Tender Offer by EUR 0.80 per share and, as a result, the final offer price of EUR 14.20 per share shall be paid to the Tekla shareholders who have validly tendered their shares in the Tender Offer.   Trimble Finland anticipates that the trades to complete the Tender Offer will be executed on or about July 5, 2011 and the final offer price of EUR 14.20 per share shall be paid to Tekla shareholders on or about July 8, 2011, as of which date the ownership of the tendered shares will be transferred to Trimble Finland and the Tender Offer will be completed.

On June 30, 2011, Trimble Finland announced its intention to acquire the remaining outstanding shares in Tekla not acquired in the Tender Offer.  As Trimble Finland’s ownership upon the settlement of the trades to complete the Tender Offer will exceed nine-tenths (9/10) of the outstanding shares in Tekla, Trimble Finland will initiate compulsory redemption proceedings for the remaining shares in Tekla under the Finnish Companies Act. Trimble Finland may also purchase shares in Tekla not acquired in the Tender Offer in public trading on NASDAQ OMX Helsinki at a price not exceeding the final offer price in the Tender Offer of EUR 14.20 per share.
