BioMarin Announces Offering of $450 Million of 0.599% Senior Subordinated Convertible Notes Due 2024
Aug 7, 2017

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Aug. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (NASDAQ: BMRN), announced today an underwritten offering of $450 million aggregate principal amount of 0.599% senior subordinated convertible notes due 2024 (the Notes).  BioMarin has also granted the underwriters a 13-day option to purchase up to an additional $45 million aggregate principal amount of Notes.  BioMarin intends to use a majority of the net proceeds from the offering to repay, repurchase or settle in cash some or all of BioMarin's 0.75% senior subordinated convertible notes due in October 2018, although it does not intend to affect any such repayment or repurchase concurrently with the offering.  BioMarin intends to use the remaining net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including clinical trials of its product candidates and the expansion of its manufacturing capacity, particularly with respect to the manufacturing capability for its gene therapy program. The initial conversion rate for the Notes will be 8.0212 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $124.67 per share of common stock, which is approximately a 40% premium over today's closing stock price of $89.05). The aggregate number of shares issuable upon conversion of these Notes at the initial conversion rate would be 3,609,540 shares (or 3,970,494 shares, if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional Notes in full). The Notes will be convertible into shares of BioMarin's common stock plus, if applicable, cash in lieu of any fractional share.
