Krystexxa, a potential therapy for treatment-failure gout patients

Press Release:
Savient Pharmaceuticals gets $31M injection

Savient Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: SVNT) , a specialty biopharmaceutical company in East Brunswick, raised $31 million through a direct offering of shares.
The company said select new and existing institutional investors agreed to purchase 5.93 million units at $5.23 each. Each unit consists of one share of common stock and one warrant to purchase 0.85 shares of common stock. The names of the institutional investors were not disclosed.

Lazard Capital Markets LLC is the placement agent for the offering, which is slated to close by April 8.

Savient said the exercise price of the warrants is $10.46. That price may change, though, based on the Food and Drug Administration?s response to the company?s biologics license application for Krystexxa, a potential therapy for treatment-failure gout patients. These are gout patients who have not responded to other forms of treatment aimed at normalizing uric acid levels.
