On August 16, 2012, Fluidigm Corporation (the Company) entered into an underwriting agreement (the Underwriting Agreement) with Piper Jaffray & Co. and Cowen and Company, LLC, as joint book-running managers and representatives of the several underwriters party thereto (collectively, the Underwriters) relating to the public offering (the Offering) of 3,660,000 shares of the Companys common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the Common Stock), at a price to the public of $14.25 per share (the Offering Price), less underwriting discounts and commissions. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company has also granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 549,000 shares of Common Stock to cover over-allotments, if any, at the Offering Price. The net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the Common Stock, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, are expected to be approximately $48.7 million assuming no exercise by the Underwriters of their over-allotment option, or $56.1 million if the Underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full. The Offering is expected to close on August 21, 2012, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The Common Stock is being offered and sold pursuant to a prospectus dated May 10, 2012 and a preliminary prospectus supplement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on August 16, 2012, in connection with a takedown from the Companys effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-180550), as amended, declared effective by the SEC on May 10, 2012.
The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions.
