Item 8.01               Other Events.

 

On January 15, 2013, Pacira Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company” or “Pacira”) announced its intention to offer $100 million of aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2019, subject to market conditions and other factors. The notes are to be offered and sold only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

 

The notes will be the senior, unsecured obligations of the Company and will accrue interest payable semiannually in arrears.  Upon conversion, holders will receive cash up to the principal amount of the notes and, with respect to any excess conversion value, cash, shares of the Company’s common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of the Company’s common stock, at the Company’s option.  The interest rate, conversion rate, offering price and other terms will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering. Pacira also expects to grant to the initial purchasers a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $10 million aggregate principal amount of the notes on the same terms and conditions, solely to cover sales in excess thereof, if any.

 

The Company expects to use approximately $30.0 million of the net proceeds of the offering to repay all amounts outstanding under, and to terminate, its senior secured credit facility, and the remainder of the net proceeds from the offering (including from any exercise by the initial purchasers of their option to purchase additional notes) to fund the continued commercialization of EXPAREL and the development of additional indications for EXPAREL and for general corporate purposes.

 

The full text of the press release issued in connection with the announcement is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected or implied in these forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause such a difference include, without limitation, risks and uncertainties related to whether or not the Company will offer the notes or consummate the offering, the anticipated terms of the notes and the offering, the anticipated use of the proceeds of the offering, and the impact of general economic, industry or political conditions in the United States or internationally. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to complete the proposed notes offering on the anticipated terms, or at all. Additional risks and uncertainties relating to Pacira and its business are discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012 and in other filings that the Company periodically makes with the SEC.
