WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radius Health, Inc. ("Radius" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:RDUS) today announced the pricing of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the "notes") in an underwritten public offering (the "offering") registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Radius has granted the underwriters an option to purchase, exercisable within a 30-day period, up to an additional $45 million principal amount of notes, solely to cover over-allotments, if any. The offering is expected to close on August 14, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions.
The notes will pay interest semiannually in arrears on March 1 and September 1 of each year at the rate of 3.00% per year, beginning March 1, 2018. The notes will mature on September 1, 2024, unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date. Prior to September 1, 2021, Radius will not have the right to redeem the notes. Subject to certain conditions, on or after September 1, 2021, Radius may redeem for cash all or a part of the notes. Prior to June 1, 2024, the notes will be convertible at the option of holders of the notes only upon satisfaction of certain conditions and during certain periods, and thereafter, will be convertible at any time until the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the maturity date. Upon conversion, holders of the notes will receive shares of Radius common stock, cash or a combination thereof, at Radius' election. The conversion rate for the notes will initially be 20.4891 shares of Radius common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $48.81 per share, and is subject to adjustment under the terms of the notes. This represents a premium of approximately 32.5% over the last reported sale price of $36.835 per share of Radius common stock on The NASDAQ Global Market on August 8, 2017. Holders of the notes may require Radius to repurchase their notes upon the occurrence of a fundamental change prior to maturity for cash at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any.
Radius estimates that the net proceeds from the offering of the notes will be approximately $290.8 million (or approximately $334.5 million if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full), after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by Radius. Radius intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to support the U.S. commercial launch of TYMLOS™ (abaloparatide) injection and the development of its life cycle management activities, such as Radius' investigational abaloparatide transdermal patch, and to advance the development of its pipeline of product candidates, including a Phase 2 clinical trial of elacestrant (RAD1901) in breast cancer and a Phase 1 study of RAD140 in breast cancer, and for general corporate purposes.
