OPKO Closes Offering Of $175 Million Of 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes Due 2033

OPKO Health, Inc. (NYSE: OPK) today announced the closing of its offering of $175.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.00% convertible senior notes due 2033 (the “Notes”) in a private offering. OPKO intends to use the approximately $170.3 million of net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including research and development expenses, acceleration of clinical trials, acquisitions of new technologies or businesses, and other business opportunities.

The Notes are OPKO's senior unsecured obligations and rank equally with all of OPKO's other existing and future senior unsecured debt. The Notes bear interest at the rate of 3.00% per year, payable semiannually on February 1 and August 1 of each year, beginning August 1, 2013. The Notes mature on February 1, 2033, unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted.

The Notes are convertible at any time on or after November 1, 2032 through the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, at the option of the holders. Additionally, holders may convert their notes prior to the close of business on the scheduled trading day immediately preceding November 1, 2032 upon the occurrence of specified events. The Notes are convertible into cash, shares of OPKO common stock or a combination of cash and shares at an initial conversion rate of 141.4827 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $7.07 per share of common stock), and will be subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events. In addition, OPKO will, in certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate for holders who convert their Notes in connection with a make-whole fundamental change (as defined in the indenture relating to the Notes) and holders who convert upon the occurrence of certain specific events prior to February 1, 2017 (other than in connection with a make-whole fundamental change).
