DUBLIN, June 2, 2015 /CNW/ -- Endo International plc (NASDAQ: ENDP) (TSX: ENL) (the "Company" or "Endo") announced today that it has commenced an underwritten public offering of $1.75 billion of ordinary shares (the "Offering"). All ordinary shares in the offering are to be sold by Endo.
The Company will also grant to the underwriters of the Offering an option, exercisable for a period of 30 days following the date of the final prospectus supplement, to purchase an additional $262.5 million of ordinary shares at the public offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions.
