DUBLIN, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Theravance Biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBPH) ("Theravance Biopharma" or the "Company") today announced the pricing of concurrent underwritten public offerings of 3,850,000 ordinary shares (the "Shares") at a price to the public of $26.00 per share and $200 million aggregate principal amount of its 3.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the "Notes"). Theravance Biopharma is offering all of the Shares and the Notes. In addition, Theravance Biopharma has granted the underwriters of the offering of Shares (the "Shares Offering") a 30-day option to purchase up to 577,500 additional ordinary shares and the underwriters of the offering of Notes (the "Notes Offering") a 30-day option to purchase up to $30 million aggregate principal amount of additional Notes.
The Notes will be general unsecured obligations of the Company and will pay interest semi-annually on May 1 and November 1 of each year at a rate of 3.25% per year. The initial conversion rate of the Notes is 29.0276 ordinary shares per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes (which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $34.45 per share), and will be subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events. The initial conversion price represents a conversion premium of approximately 32.5% over the sale price of ordinary shares sold in the Shares Offering. The Notes will mature on November 1, 2023, unless earlier repurchased or converted. The Notes will be convertible into ordinary shares of the Company at the then-applicable conversion rate until the close of business on the second business day immediately preceding the stated maturity date. The Notes will not be redeemable at the Company's option prior to maturity except in connection with certain changes in tax laws. Holders of the Notes will have the right to require the Company to repurchase all or any portion of their notes at 100% of their principal amount, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, upon the occurrence of certain fundamental change events.
The Company estimates that the net proceeds of the Shares Offering will be approximately $93.7 million (or approximately $107.8 million if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares in full) and the net proceeds of the Notes Offering will be approximately $193.4 million (or approximately $222.5 million if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional Notes in full), in each case, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offerings for general corporate purposes, which may include, among other things, research activities, preclinical and clinical development of product candidates, manufacture of pre-clinical, clinical and commercial drug supplies, selling and marketing expenses, capital expenditures, working capital, general and administrative expenses and acquisitions of technology or drug candidates.
