About $770 million in net proceeds will go toward the repayment of outstanding debt under its senior unsecured revolving credit facility.
The firm replaced an existing $4 billion credit facility with a $5 billion one, and entered into a new $5 billion revolving credit facility.
The agreement consists of a $100 million revolving credit facility, a $100 million initial term loan, and a $50 million delayed-draw term loan.
Proceeds from the loan facility will go toward the acquisition of Envigo's nonclinical research services business and other general corporate purposes.
The company drew $49 from the credit facility to repay an earlier outstanding loan and expects to draw another $27 million to, in part, pay for its acquisition of GenePOC.
The firm expects to offer nearly 5 million shares and also noted that this week it entered into an amended credit facility.
NanoString will initially draw $60 million at close, which will net it approximately $8 million after repaying its existing debt with the investment firm.
The new agreement amends a deal reached in October to partially fund its acquisition of some Alere businesses. That agreement was for $270 million.
NeoGenomics has now redeemed 100 percent of the $110 million preferred stock issues in conjunction with the Clarient acquisition, at a cost of $105 million.
The company will use a portion of the credit facility to fund its announced acquisition of Integrated DNA Technologies.
