SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sagent Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:SGNT), a leader of specialty pharmaceutical products with an emphasis on the injectable market, today announced that it has upsized its previously announced registered offering from 4,441,627 to 4,600,000 shares of its common stock and priced the offering at a public offering price of $21.25 per share. Of these shares, the Company has agreed to sell 3,542,470 shares of common stock and selling stockholders have agreed to sell, collectively, 1,057,530 shares of common stock.  In addition, the selling shareholders, collectively, intend to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 690,000 shares of common stock, all at the public offering price less the underwriter discount. The offering is expected to close on September 16, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.
