Conversion Right Triggered On OPKO 3.0% Convertible Senior Notes

Stocks in this article: OPK

OPKO Health, Inc. (NYSE: OPK) today announced that the Company's 3.0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2033 (the “Notes”) are convertible by holders of such Notes into shares of the Company’s Common Stock.

The conversion right for the Notes has been triggered because the product of the Company’s Common Stock closing price per share and the applicable conversion rate for the Notes exceeded more than 98% the trading price for the Notes. The Notes will continue to be convertible through September 6, 2013, and may be convertible thereafter, if one or more of the conversion conditions specified in the Indenture, dated as of January 30, 2013, by and between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, are satisfied. Pursuant to the Indenture, a holder who elects to convert the Notes will receive 141.4827 shares of the Company’s Common Stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.

Wells Fargo Bank, National Association is the trustee for the holders of the Notes and the conversion agent under the Indenture. All questions relating to the mechanics of the conversion for the Notes should be directed to Wells Fargo Bank National Association, Attn: Stefan Victory at stefanvictory@wellsfargo.com. All questions relating to the issuance of the Company’s Common Stock should be directed to American Stock Transfer at (800) 937-5449.

This press release is only a summary of certain provisions of the Notes and the Indenture. A complete explanation of the conversion rights of holders of the Notes, as well as the procedures required to convert the Notes, is set forth in the Indenture. All holders are urged to review the conversion provisions contained in the Indenture in its entirety.
