Global Blood Therapeutics Announces Pricing of Public Offering of 4,000,000 Shares of Common Stock

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Blood Therapeutics, Inc. (GBT) (Nasdaq:GBT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to discovering, developing and commercializing novel therapeutics to treat grievous blood-based disorders with significant unmet need, today announced the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 4,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $54.00 per share.  The gross proceeds from this offering are expected to be approximately $216.0 million, before deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other estimated offering expenses payable by GBT.

In addition, GBT has granted the underwriter a 30-day option to purchase up to 600,000 additional shares of its common stock.

GBT intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund its clinical development of voxelotor for the treatment of sickle cell disease, including its ongoing Phase 3 HOPE Study and its ongoing Phase 2a HOPE-KIDS 1 Study, as well as future clinical trials, to build and expand its commercial organization in preparation for the potential approval and launch of voxelotor, to fund its other research and development activities, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.  GBT may also use a portion of the net proceeds to in-license, acquire or invest in new business, technology or assets, although it has no material agreements, commitments or understandings in place.

Wells Fargo Securities, LLC is the sole book-running manager for the offering.
