Date:7/11/2012

BEDFORD, Mass., July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (NASDAQ: HOLX) announced today that it has launched marketing for $750 million aggregate principal amount of its senior notes due 2020 (the "Notes"), in a private offering expected to close concurrently with the completion of Hologic's acquisition of Gen-Probe Incorporated (NASDAQ: GPRO), which, subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions, including obtaining the approval of Gen-Probe's stockholders, is expected to close on or about August 1, 2012.

The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. Hologic intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to fund a portion of the purchase price for its acquisition of Gen-Probe. Unless so registered, the notes may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities.
