Acorda Therapeutics Announces Pricing Of $300 Million Of 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes Due 2021

Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACOR) today announced the pricing of a public offering of $300 million principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2021 (the "Notes"). The Notes will bear interest at an annual rate of 1.75% and will mature on June 15, 2021, unless earlier converted, purchased or redeemed. Acorda granted the underwriter an option to purchase up to an additional $45 million principal amount of Notes to cover over-allotments, if any.

The Notes will be convertible prior to December 15, 2020 only under certain circumstances and during certain periods, and will be convertible thereafter regardless of those circumstances. The conversion rate will initially be 23.4968 shares of Acorda’s common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $42.56 per share of Acorda’s common stock), subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. Upon conversion, the Notes may be settled, at Acorda's election, in cash, shares of Acorda's common stock or a combination of cash and shares of Acorda's common stock.

Acorda intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including to fund possible acquisitions of, or investments in, complementary businesses, products and technologies. Acorda has not entered into any agreements or commitments with respect to any acquisitions or investments at this time.

J.P. Morgan Securities LLC is acting as the sole book-running manager for the Notes offering.
