TherapeuticsMD Secures $15 Million Equity Investment from Rubric Capital
Company Also Reaches Agreement with Sixth Street Partners to Extend the Maturity Date of its Financing Agreement to September 30, 2022 with the Ability to Extend to November 30, 2022 if Additional Capital is Received
BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TherapeuticsMD, Inc. (NASDAQ: TXMD), (“TherapeuticsMD” or the “Company”) an innovative, leading women’s healthcare company, announced today that it has received a $15 million private investment in the Company’s common stock and a new series of preferred stock (“PIPE”) from Rubric Capital Management LP (“Rubric”). TherapeuticsMD expects to use the proceeds from the transaction to fulfill its near-term operating capital requirements.
The Company also entered into an amendment with its lender, Sixth Street Specialty Lending, Inc. (“Sixth Street”), to extend the maturity date of the Company’s Financing Agreement debt to September 30, 2022. The Company has the option to further extend the maturity date until October 31, 2022 and November 30, 2022 if it receives additional equity capital of $7 million per extension.
The Company believes that the PIPE, together with the financing agreement extension, will enable TherapeuticsMD to continue meeting the significant demand for its portfolio of women’s health and wellness products while its Board of Directors and management team evaluate strategic alternatives to strengthen the Company’s long-term financial position.
“TherapeuticsMD has three growing assets whose value has been enhanced by the recent approval of both Annovera’s supplemental NDA and lower-dose Bijuva, as well as the increasing relevance of convenient and safe contraceptive options for women,” said David Rosen, Managing Partner of Rubric Capital Management. “With our investment, TherapeuticsMD will have the time and resources to thoroughly evaluate its strategic options with the objective of securing the best outcome for all shareholders.”
“We are delighted to have the support of Rubric as we continue to evaluate strategic alternatives for the Company” said Hon. Tommy Thompson, Chairman of the Board. “We believe this equity capital, plus Sixth Street’s extension, will enhance the Company’s ability to achieve the highest possible value for our equity holders.”
In exchange for its initial $15 million investment, Rubric received 565,000 shares of TherapeuticsMD common stock and 15,000 shares of newly designated Series A Preferred Stock, with a liquidation value of $1,333 per share. Following closing of the transaction, Rubric will own approximately 18.3% of the Company’s common stock.
The Company also granted Sixth Street warrants to acquire 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.01 and would grant 125,000 additional common stock warrants for each additional monthly extension that the Company elects.
