: Neurocrine Announces Proposed Convertible Senior Notes Offering.
Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc. today announced its intention to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $450.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2024 (the "notes") in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). Neurocrine also expects to grant the initial purchasers of the notes a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $67.5 million aggregate principal amount of notes.
The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Neurocrine and will accrue interest payable semiannually in arrears. The notes will be convertible in certain circumstances into cash, shares of Neurocrine's common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of Neurocrine's common stock, at Neurocrine's election. The interest rate, initial conversion rate and other terms of the notes will be determined at the time of the pricing of the offering.
Neurocrine intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include commercialization expenses, clinical trial and other research and development expenses, capital expenditures, working capital and general and administrative expenses.
The offer and sale of the notes and the shares, if any, issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws, and the notes and such shares may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the notes or any shares issuable upon conversion of the notes, nor shall there be any sale of the notes or such shares, in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
