Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 8, 2010, Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Barclays Capital Inc. (the "Underwriter") relating to the issuance and sale of 8,300,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Offering"). The initial price to the public in this offering is $7.50 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company has also granted the Underwriter a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,245,000 shares of Common Stock at the initial offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The net proceeds to the Company from the Offering are expected to be approximately $60.0 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, assuming no exercise by the Underwriters of its option to purchase additional shares of Common Stock. The transactions contemplated by the Underwriting Agreement are expected to close on September 14, 2010, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The Offering was made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-164215), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 21, 2010, as supplemented by a final prospectus supplement to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").
The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriter, including for liabilities under the Securities Act, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the terms of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the Underwriting Agreement.
The legal opinion, including the related consent, of DLA Piper LLP (US) is filed as Exhibit 5.1 to this Current Report.
This Current Report contains forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties, such as statements related to the anticipated closing of the Offering and the amount of net proceeds expected from the Offering. The risks and uncertainties involved include the Company’s ability to satisfy certain conditions to closing on a timely basis or at all, as well as other risks detailed from time to time in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009.
