The company holds a leading position in reproductive testing and is expected to rapidly grow its oncology business to address a total market of $21 billion.

The company is selling 4,166,666 shares of its common stock at a price of $60 per share in the offering, which is expected to close Sept. 15.

The organization had previously only recommended the use of noninvasive prenatal testing in individuals 35 and older or with other known risk factors.

Natera sued Progenity in June but the firm said its Innatal cell-free DNA noninvasive prenatal test does not infringe any of Natera's six patents.

The suit comes shortly after Progenity filed for an initial public offering in which it is seeking to raise up to $122.6 million.

The May 8 settlement resolves all claims and counterclaims relating to noninvasive prenatal testing and pre-implantation genetic screening and diagnosis.

Natera reported $94 million in revenues for the quarter, up from $66.8 million a year ago and beating analysts' consensus estimate of $85 million.

Revenues for the fiscal year totaled £16.6 million ($20.7 million), up from £8.9 million during FY 2019.

The notes will be sold at an initial effective conversion price of about $38.79 per share, approximately a 30 percent premium to Monday's $29.84 per share closing price.

The company is withdrawing its previous financial guidance for 2020, saying that it cannot predict the extent or duration of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
