The net proceeds from the sale of the shares, after deducting the underwriters' discounts and other estimated offering expenses, will be approximately $28.1 million. Omeros has also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 15 percent of the shares of common stock offered in the public offering to cover overallotments, if any, which would result in additional gross proceeds of approximately $4.5 million if exercised in full.

The offering is expected to close on or about July 2, 2012, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Cowen and Company, LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. acted as the joint book-running managers for the offering, Canaccord Genuity Inc. and Wedbush PacGrow Life Sciences acted as co-managers, and WBB Securities served as a financial advisor to Omeros.
