NEW YORK – Natera said on Wednesday that it has launched a follow-on public offering of $250 million of shares of its common stock.
In a shelf registration statement filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Natera said that at an assumed public offering price of $61.79 per share, the last reported sale price of its common stock on Sept. 8, it would be offering 4,045,962 shares of its common stock.
Natera also expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $37.5 million worth of shares of its common stock at the public offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions.
JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Cowen, and SVB Leerink are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering, while Baird and Craig-Hallum Capital Group are acting as co-managers.
In April, Natera had offered $250 million worth of convertible senior notes.
