On December 12, 2012, ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc., a Delaware corporation (ACADIA), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with the purchasers set forth on Exhibit A thereto (the
Securities Purchase Agreement), pursuant to which ACADIA sold, on December 17, 2012, for an aggregate price of $84.2 million, 19 million shares of its common stock (the Shares) and, for an aggregate price of $2.2
million, warrants to purchase 500,000 shares of its common stock (the Warrants and, together with the Shares, the Securities) with an exercise price of $0.01 per share (the Private Placement). The Warrants become
exercisable six months after the closing of the Private Placement and expire seven years after the closing of the Private Placement, unless earlier terminated. The Warrants may be exercised for cash or, if the fair market value of ACADIAs
common stock is greater than the per share exercise price, by surrender of a portion of such Warrant in a cashless exercise. The shares of ACADIAs common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants are referred to as the Warrant
Shares. The Warrants may not be exercised if the holders ownership of shares of ACADIA common stock would exceed 19.99% following such exercise.
Under the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, ACADIA has agreed to file, within 30 days after the closing of the Private Placement, a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange
Commission to register for resale the Shares and the Warrant Shares, which registration statement is required under the Securities Purchase Agreement to become effective no later than 120 days following the closing. ACADIA will be required to pay
liquidated damages of 1.5% of the aggregate purchase price of the Securities per month (up to a cap of 10%) if it does not meet certain obligations with respect to the registration of the Shares and the Warrant Shares.
The foregoing is a summary of the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement and does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by
reference to the full text of the Securities Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities |
On December 17, 2012, ACADIA completed a private placement of the Shares and Warrants. Pursuant to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement,
ACADIA sold 19 million shares of its common stock at $4.43 per share and warrants to purchase 500,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $4.42 per warrant. The Warrants have an exercise price of $0.01 per share. The Securities Purchase
Agreement, including the form of Warrant and other exhibits thereto, is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and incorporated herein by reference.
The aggregate offering price of the Securities was approximately $86.4 million and the aggregate placement agent commissions were approximately $5.2
million. Jefferies & Company, Inc. and Cowen and Company, LLC acted as joint lead placement agents and JMP Securities LLC acted as co-placement agent in the Private Placement.
The Shares and the Warrants to be issued to the purchasers have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), or any state securities laws. ACADIA
relied on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act by virtue of Section 4(2) thereof and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. Each of the purchasers represented that it was acquiring the Shares and the
Warrants for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof.
As described in Item 1.01 of this current report, which is incorporated by reference into this
Item 3.02, ACADIA has agreed to file a registration statement for the resale of the Shares and the Warrant Shares. The Shares, the Warrant Shares and the Warrants may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or exemption
from registration under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws. Neither this current report nor the exhibit attached hereto is an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy shares of common stock or other securities of
