InterMune Announces Pricing of Concurrent Public Offerings of $105,000,000 Principal Amount of Convertible Senior Notes and 13,500,000 Shares of Common Stock

BRISBANE, Calif., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- InterMune, Inc. (Nasdaq: ITMN) today announced that it has agreed to sell an aggregate of $105,000,000 principal amount of its 2.50% convertible senior notes due 2017 and 13,500,000 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $9.90 per share in concurrent underwritten public offerings.  InterMune has granted the underwriters 30-day options to purchase up to an additional $15,750,000 aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes and up to an additional 2,025,000 shares of common stock in connection with the offerings.  InterMune estimates aggregate net proceeds from the concurrent offerings to be approximately $228.1 million (assuming no exercise of the underwriters' options to purchase additional convertible senior notes and shares of common stock), after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses.  InterMune currently intends to use the net proceeds from the offerings to repay at maturity or earlier repurchase its outstanding 5.00% convertible senior notes due 2015.  The Company currently has received commitments from certain holders of the outstanding 5.00% convertible senior notes to allow the Company to repurchase approximately $50 million of the 2015 notes.  Proceeds from the offerings may also be used to fund the commercialization of Esbriet® (pirfenidone), to fund InterMune's ASCEND trial and for general corporate purposes, which may include funding research and development, and working capital. InterMune may also use a portion of the net proceeds for capital expenditures or for acquisitions or investments in complementary businesses, products and technologies.

The convertible senior notes will bear interest at a rate of 2.50% per year, payable on June 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing on June 15, 2013.  The convertible senior notes will mature on December 15, 2017.  Upon conversion, holders of the convertible senior notes may receive cash, shares of InterMune's common stock or a combination of cash and shares of InterMune's common stock, at InterMune's election.  If InterMune undergoes a "fundamental change" (as defined in the prospectus supplement relating to the convertible senior notes), holders of the convertible senior notes will have the option to require InterMune to repurchase all or any portion of their notes at 100% of par, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the repurchase date. 

Holders may convert their notes at their option prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding September 15, 2017, but only under certain circumstances.  On or after September 15, 2017 until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day prior to the maturity date, holders may convert their notes at any time.  The initial conversion rate for each $1,000 aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes is 77.7001 shares of common stock, equivalent to a conversion price of approximately $12.87 per share, which represents a premium of approximately 30% to the public offering price of InterMune's shares in the concurrent common stock offering.

On or after June 20, 2015, InterMune may redeem for cash all or part of the convertible senior notes at 100% of par (plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the redemption date) if the last reported sale price of its common stock exceeds 130% of the conversion price then in effect for 20 or more trading days in a period of 30 consecutive trading days ending within the 10 trading days immediately prior to the date of the redemption notice.

Morgan Securities LLC are acting as joint book-running managers of these offerings.  Canaccord Genuity, Inc., Leerink Swann LLC, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and William Blair & Company, L.L.C. are acting as co-managers of the common stock offering.  The common stock offering and the convertible senior notes offering are being conducted as separate public offerings by means of separate prospectus supplements filed as part of an effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Form S-3.  Neither of these offerings is contingent upon the consummation of the other.  InterMune expects to close these transactions on or about January 22, 2013, and each closing is subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.  Before investing in either offering, interested parties may read the prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus for such offering and the other documents InterMune has filed with the SEC, which are incorporated by reference in the prospectus supplements and the accompanying prospectus and provide more complete information about InterMune and the offerings.  Copies of the preliminary prospectus supplements and the accompanying prospectus relating to each offering may be obtained, when available, from Goldman, Sachs & Co.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
