JERUSALEM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) announced today that it has priced its concurrent offerings totaling $6.75 billion, consisting of 54 million American Depositary Shares ("ADSs"), each representing one Teva ordinary share, at $62.50 per ADS and 3,375,000 of its 7.00% Mandatory Convertible Preferred Shares at $1,000.00 per share.
The net proceeds from the ADS offering and the Mandatory Convertible Preferred Shares offering will be approximately $3.29 billion each, after estimated underwriting discounts, commissions and offering expenses payable by Teva. Teva intends to use the net proceeds from these offerings towards the cash portion of the purchase price for its previously announced acquisition of Allergan plc's worldwide generic pharmaceuticals business ("Actavis Generics") and related fees and expenses, for the pending acquisition of Rimsa or otherwise for general corporate purposes.
These offerings are separate public offerings made by means of separate prospectus supplements and are not contingent on each other, or upon the consummation of the Actavis Generics or Rimsa acquisitions. If for any reason the acquisitions do not close, Teva expects to use the net proceeds from these offerings for general corporate purposes. In addition, the underwriters in each offering have been granted an option to purchase up to an additional 10% of the ADSs and up to an additional 10% of the Mandatory Convertible Preferred Shares, in each case, solely to cover overallotments, if any.
Unless converted earlier, each Mandatory Convertible Preferred Share will convert automatically on December 15, 2018 (the "mandatory conversion date"), into between 13.3333 and 16.0000 ADSs, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. The number of ADSs issuable upon conversion will be determined based on the average volume-weighted average price per ADS over the 20 consecutive trading day period beginning on and including the 22nd scheduled trading day immediately preceding the mandatory conversion date.
Dividends on the Mandatory Convertible Preferred Shares will be payable on a cumulative basis when, as and if declared by Teva's board of directors, at an annual rate of 7.00% on the liquidation preference of $1,000.00 per share. These dividends will be paid in cash on March 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing on March 15, 2016, to, and including, December 15, 2018.
Barclays, BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, BNP PARIBAS, Credit Suisse, HSBC, Mizuho Securities, RBC Capital Markets and SMBC Nikko are acting as the joint book-running managers for the offerings.
