There were 12M shares sold at a price of USD 5 per share, resulting in a total deal value of USD 60M. The shares were sold by a shareholder and not by ADC. The offering included participation from Redmile Group, Perceptive Advisors, Frazier Life Sciences and Surveyor Capital (a Citadel company) along with other institutional investors. Jefferies acted as sole book-running manager for the offering.
