Omeros Announces Closing of $16.2 Million Registered Direct Offering of Common Stock

SEATTLE, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Omeros Corporation (NASDAQ: OMER) today reported that it closed the registered direct offering of 3,903,004 shares of its common stock that was announced on May 9, 2013.  The shares were sold at a price of $4.14 per share, which represented a two percent premium over the closing price on May 8, 2013.  The shares were sold directly to affiliates of RA Capital Management and other investors without an underwriter or placement agent. Omeros received net proceeds from the offering of approximately $16.1 million, after deducting estimated offering expenses.

Omeros intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes, including expenses related to the potential commercialization of OMS302 for intraocular lens replacement, as well as for research and development expenses, such as funding planned clinical trials for its OMS103HP, PDE10, MASP-2 and PDE7 programs. The net proceeds may also be used to fund pre-clinical studies, capital expenditures, working capital and to otherwise advance Omeros' potential products towards commercialization.
