loan agreement

The loan can be funded at Invitae's option during the second quarter of 2018 and will provide flexibility as the firm grows its genome network.

The firm said it expects to finance the construction of a clinical lab and related facilities, as well as additional development of a 46-acre campus.

The company immediately borrowed $255 million to pay part of the $680 million price tag for Alere's MeterPro cardiovascular and toxicology business and its BNP assay business.

Brooks also said it has signed a seven-year, $200 million senior term loan agreement with a group of institutional investors.

The firm said that it expects to use the proceeds of the senior notes offering to contribute to retirement of remaining convertible notes.

The firm said it may use the loans to finance its $1.3 billion acquisition of Euroimmun Medical Laboratory Diagnostics.

Premaitha will issue Thermo Fisher warrants over 28,938,797 new ordinary shares and a second tranche of warrants in 2018. 

The loan from the European Investment Bank will go toward the development of Stat-Dx's diagnostic platform for detecting infectious pathogens, such as meningitis. 

The company said it ultimately plans to use the liquidity from the credit facility to fund a portion of its pending $4 billion acquisition of Cepheid.

The Belgian molecular diagnostics company said it will focus on expanding its capability to manufacture its Idylla diagnostics.
