Sinovac has granted the underwriters a 30-day over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 1,500,000 common shares on the same terms and conditions.

Sinovac plans to use the net proceeds of the offering to fund the acquisition and expansion of production facilities, the enhancement of production lines, the research and development of product candidates, the expansion of product pipeline, and general corporate purposes (including an undetermined amount for potential acquisitions).
