The Notes will be convertible into cash, shares of Dendreon's common stock (the "Common Stock") or a combination of cash and shares of Common Stock, at Dendreon's election. Dendreon also expects to grant the underwriter of the offering of the Notes an option to purchase up to an additional $75 million aggregate principal amount of Notes solely to cover overallotments.
The Notes will be the unsecured, senior obligations of Dendreon. Interest on the Notes will be payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, beginning on July 15, 2011. The interest rate, conversion rate, offering price and certain other terms of the Notes will be determined by negotiations between the company and the underwriter.
Dendreon intends to use the net proceeds of the offering of the Notes to fund the continued investment in and expansion of its manufacturing facilities, including the construction of a new immunotherapy manufacturing facility in Europe and the expenses associated with increasing capacity at its existing Morris Plains, New Jersey, Atlanta, Georgia and Orange County, California facilities; cover expenses in connection with pursuing non-U.S. marketing approvals for PROVENGEÂ® (sipuleucel-T); fund new clinical trials for PROVENGE and other product candidates; finance its marketing and awareness efforts for PROVENGE; fund the ongoing hiring of additional manufacturing, sales and marketing, quality, research and development and other personnel to support PROVENGE and its other product candidates; fund additional investment in information technology infrastructure and product support systems; for third-party contract supply costs; and for general corporate purposes, including working capital. Dendreon may also use a portion of the net proceeds to acquire strategic assets, although Dendreon currently has no agreements or commitments to do so.
In connection with the offering of the Notes, the underwriter expects to distribute in an offering registered under the Securities Act up to $250,000,000 worth of shares of Common Stock to facilitate the hedging of the Notes by buyers of the Notes. The final number of shares of Common Stock to be distributed by the underwriter will be determined by the demand of the buyers of the Notes to have their hedging of the Notes facilitated.
Dendreon has been advised by the underwriter that it will purchase the shares of Common Stock from buyers of the Notes that it will distribute in connection with, and contingent on the pricing and the closing of, the Notes offering, with a view to initially offer the shares of Common Stock at a fixed price per share and to subsequently offer the shares of Common Stock in one or more transactions on The NASDAQ Global Select Market, in the over-the-counter market, through negotiated transactions or otherwise at the market prices prevailing at the time of the sale, at prices related to the prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.
Dendreon will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the shares of Common Stock in the offering.
