SAN DIEGO, May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: NBIX) (the "Company" or "Neurocrine Biosciences") today announced that it has entered into separate, privately negotiated transactions (the "Agreements") with certain holders of its existing 2.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the "2024 Notes") to repurchase approximately $179.4 million aggregate principal amount of the 2024 Notes for an aggregate repurchase price of an amount of cash estimated to be the sum of (i) approximately $224.0 million, (ii) an amount based in part on the trading price of the Company's common stock and (iii) accrued and unpaid interest. The 2024 Notes repurchases are expected to close over a period ending on June 14, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions. Such repurchases of the 2024 Notes could affect the market price of the Company's common stock.
Following these repurchases, approximately $201.8 million aggregate principal of the Company's 2024 Notes will remain outstanding, from an initial principal balance of $517.5 million.

"Our capital allocation priorities remain focused on growing INGREZZA and advancing our mid-to-late-stage clinical programs."
