Valeritas (NSDQ:VLRX) today priced an underwritten public offering of 75 million shares at 48¢ per share and accompanying warrants.
The Bridgewater, N.J.-based company expects to reel in roughly $36 million in proceeds from the offering.
The offering’s series A and B warrants have exercise prices of 60¢ per share and 48¢ per share, respectively. Valeritas said the offering is slated to close on Nov. 20.
The company plans to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
