ARIAD Announces Pricing Of Public Offering Of Common Stock

ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARIA) today announced the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 15,307,000 shares of its common stock, at a price to the public of $19.60 per share. The offering is expected to close on or about January 29, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. In addition, ARIAD has granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to 2,296,050 additional shares of common stock to cover over-allotments, if any.

This funding is expected to enable ARIAD to support sales, marketing, manufacturing and distribution of Iclusig™ (ponatinib).
