Omeros Announces Debt Financing Transaction for $20 Million in Additional Funds

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Omeros Corporation (NASDAQ: OMER) (the “Company”) today announced that it has entered into an amendment to its existing credit facility with Oxford Finance LLC (“Oxford”) and East West Bank (“East West”) to provide the Company with an additional $20 million in unrestricted cash by funding the remaining tranches of the facility. Omeros will issue warrants to the lenders, exercisable for seven years for up to 100,602 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price per share of $9.94, the closing price of the Company’s stock on May 16, 2016. All loan payments will be interest-only until August 1, 2017. The final payment fee rate on the $20 million borrowed will increase from 5.25% to 6.25%, reflecting the accelerated draw-down of these additional funds. Omeros expects funding will occur on May 18, 2016.

“Our partnership with Omeros is long-standing, and we are confident in the Company’s ability to achieve success with its first product, OMIDRIA®, and bring additional therapies to market that will address significant unmet needs.”
