Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 19, 2019, Repligen Corporation (the “Company”) completed its previously announced underwritten public offering (the “Notes Offering”) of $287.5 million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 0.375% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Notes”), which includes $37.5 million aggregate principal amount of additional Notes issued pursuant to the full exercise of the option granted to the underwriters in the Notes Offering to cover over-allotments.

The Notes are governed by the terms of a base indenture for senior debt securities (the “Base Indenture”), as supplemented by the first supplemental indenture thereto (the “Supplemental Indenture” and together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), each dated as of July 19, 2019, by and between the Company and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”). The Notes bear cash interest at the rate of 0.375% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, beginning on January 15, 2020, to holders of record at the close of business on the preceding January 1 and July 1, respectively. The Notes will mature on July 15, 2024, unless earlier converted or repurchased in accordance with their terms.

Prior to April 15, 2024, the Notes will be convertible at the option of holders of the Notes only upon satisfaction of certain conditions and during certain periods, and thereafter, the Notes will be convertible at any time until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date. Upon conversion, holders of the Notes will receive shares of the Company’s common stock, cash or a combination thereof, at the Company’s election.

The conversion rate for the Notes will initially be 8.6749 shares of the Company’s common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $115.28 per share of common stock, and is subject to adjustment under the terms of the Notes. Holders of the Notes may require the Company to repurchase their Notes upon the occurrence of a fundamental change prior to maturity for cash at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the repurchase date.

The Company will not have the right to redeem the Notes prior to the maturity date.

The Indenture contains customary terms and covenants and events of default. If an event of default (other than certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization involving the Company) occurs and is continuing, the Trustee or the holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes may declare 100% of the principal of, and any accrued and unpaid interest on, all of the Notes to be due and payable. Upon the occurrence of certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization involving the Company, 100% of the principal of and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on all of the Notes will become due and payable automatically. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indenture provides that, to the extent the Company elects and for up to 360 days, the sole remedy for an event of default relating to certain failures by the Company to comply with certain reporting covenants in the Indenture consists exclusively of the right to receive additional interest on the Notes.

The foregoing description of the Indenture does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Base Indenture and the Supplemental Indenture that are filed as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein. The Form of Note is attached as Exhibit 4.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Other Events.

2016 Notes Exchanges

On July 16, 2019, the Company entered into separate privately negotiated agreements with certain holders of its outstanding 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 (the “2016 Notes”) to exchange an aggregate of $92.0 million principal aggregate amount of the 2016 Notes for shares of the Company’s common stock, together with cash, in private placement transactions pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act (the “Note Exchanges”).

Each holder of 2016 Notes that participated in the Note Exchanges represented to the Company that it was either an institutional “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act or a “qualified institutional buyer” within the meaning of Rule 144A promulgated under the Securities Act.
