MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) - Hansen Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: HNSN), a global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced that, subject to closing conditions, it has entered into a securities purchase agreement for up to $93 million with Oracle Investment Management, leading medical device executive Jack W. Schuler, certain members of the Company's Board of Directors, and other existing and new shareholders, including several former healthcare executives. Proceeds from this transaction will be used to support Hansen Medical's efforts to commercialize the Magellan™ Robotic System, drive further adoption of the Sensei® Robotic System and strengthen operations across the Company.
The warrants will be allocated into three equal tranches of approximately 11.4 million, and, if exercised, could yield the Company additional proceeds of up to $54 million. The Series A Warrants will have an exercise price of $1.23 per share and will be subject to mandatory exercise subsequent to Hansen Medical's receipt of regulatory approval for the new 6F Magellan catheter in the U.S. The additional proceeds provided to the Company under this Series A Warrant would be approximately $14 million.
The Series B and Series C Warrants will have an exercise price of $1.50 per share, and $2.00 per share, respectively, but will not be subject to mandatory exercise. These warrants, if fully exercised, would provide additional proceeds to the Company of $17 million and $23 million, respectively.
Under the terms of the agreement, each investor will agree to a lockup such that they will not buy (other than through exercise of the Warrants) or sell any shares of common stock for a one year period following the closing date. Following the close of the transaction, Mr. Schuler will be granted a seat on the Company's Board of Directors.
The closing of the transaction will be subject to customary closing conditions, including approval of the listing of the shares of common stock on the NASDAQ.
The securities offered will not be or have not been registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the U.S., absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
