Theravance, Inc. Announces Exercise by Underwriters of Option to Purchase Additional $37.5 Million Convertible Subordinated Notes
Published: Jan 23, 2013
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - January 22, 2013) - Theravance, Inc. (NASDAQ: THRX) (the "Company"), a biopharmaceutical company with a pipeline of internally discovered product candidates and strategic collaborations with pharmaceutical companies, announced that the underwriters of its 2.125% convertible subordinated notes due 2023 (the "notes") have exercised in full their option to purchase an additional $37.5 million aggregate principal amount of the notes, for a total offering size of $287.5 million. The offering is scheduled to close on Thursday, January 24, 2013, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. BofA Merrill Lynch is acting as the sole book-running manager for the offering.
In connection with the underwriters' exercise of their option to purchase additional notes, the Company has also entered into privately-negotiated capped call option transactions with one or more of the underwriters or their affiliates ("hedge counterparties"). The Company has previously entered into capped call transactions with the hedge counterparties with respect to $250 million of the notes on the same terms.
The capped call options are expected generally to reduce the potential dilution upon conversion of the notes in the event that the market price of the Company's common stock, as measured under the terms of the capped call transactions, is greater than the strike price of the capped call transactions, which initially corresponds to the conversion price of the notes, and is expected to be subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. However, if the market price of the Company's common stock, as measured under the terms of the capped call transactions, exceeds $38.00 per share, which is the initial cap price of the capped call transactions, the anti-dilutive effect of the capped call transactions will be limited.
