Depomed Announces Pricing of Upsized $300 Million Convertible Senior Notes Due 2021

NEWARK, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Depomed, Inc.  (Nasdaq: DEPO) today announced that it has priced its registered offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Notes").  The offering was upsized from the previously announced $230 million aggregate principal amount. The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 2.50% per year, payable semiannually on March 1 and September 1 of each year, beginning on March 1, 2015.  Depomed, Inc. ("Depomed") has granted the underwriters in the offering a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $45 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes.  Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and RBC Capital Markets, LLC are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering. The sale of the Notes is expected to close on September 9, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.

Depomed estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $290 million (or $334 million if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional notes in full), after deducting the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses payable by it. Depomed intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes and potential acquisitions and strategic transactions.  There are currently no agreements or understandings with respect to any such acquisition or strategic transaction.

The Notes will be convertible into cash, shares of Depomed's common stock or a combination of cash and shares of Depomed's common stock, at Depomed's election, at an initial conversion rate of 51.9852 shares of Depomed's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $19.24 per share of Depomed's common stock.  The Notes will mature on September 1, 2021, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms prior to such date.  Prior to March 1, 2021, the Notes will be convertible only upon the occurrence of certain events and during certain periods, and thereafter, at any time until the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date. 

Depomed may not redeem the Notes prior to September 5, 2019. Depomed may redeem for cash all or part of the Notes, at its option, on or after September 5, 2019 if the last reported sale price of Depomed's common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which Depomed provides notice of redemption, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date.

The Notes are being offered pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement (including a base prospectus) that has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission").  A final prospectus supplement related to the offering will be filed with the Commission and will be available on the Commission's website at http://www.sec.gov.  Copies of the prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus related to the offering, when available, may be obtained by contacting Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Attn: Prospectus Department, 180 Varick Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10014-4606; or RBC Capital Markets, LLC, Attn: Equity Syndicate, Three World Financial Center, 200 Vesey Street, 8th Floor, New York, New York 10281, telephone: (877) 822-4089 (toll free), email: at [email protected].
