Osmotica Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ: OSMT) has entered a note purchase agreement with Athyrium Capital Management-managed funds for around $100 million senior secured notes.
Financing offers more cash for Upneeq commercialization
CEO Brian Markison said, “This financing provides the Company with additional cash to support the commercialization of Upneeq®. We are excited to have Athyrium, a leading health care investor, as our financial partner.”
The deal is subject to customary closing conditions upon which Osmotic will issue around $55 million senior notes. Osmotica will avail the other $20 million of senior notes at its option by October 2022 upon achievement of minimum revenues for Upneeq. The remaining $25 million will be available to Osmotica at the discretion of Athyrium.
Athyrium Capital Management partner Mark Kavulich said, “We are thrilled to partner with the Osmotica team and to provide capital to support the commercial efforts around Upneeq. As a first-in-class treatment for acquired ptosis, Upneeq offers patients and clinicians a convenient non-surgical therapeutic option.”
