Immunocore Closes $312.1 Million Aggregate Financing, Makes Public Debut

London – February 23, 2021 – Cooley advised late-stage biotechnology company Immunocore on its $312.1 million aggregate financing, which consisted of a $297.1 million initial public offering of 11,426,280 American Depository Shares, including the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional ADSs, and a $15 million concurrent private placement with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Partners Divakar Gupta, Claire Keast-Butler, Nicola Maguire and Eric Blanchard led the team advising Immunocore.

Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Securities and Jefferies acted as joint book-running managers for the offering.

Immunocore, based in Oxfordshire, England with offices in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, and Rockville, Maryland, is pioneering the development of a novel class of T cell receptor bispecific immunotherapies designed to treat a broad range of diseases, including cancer, infectious and autoimmune. The company is developing a deep pipeline in multiple therapeutic areas, including five clinical stage programs in oncology and infectious disease, advanced pre-clinical programs in autoimmune disease and multiple earlier pre-clinical programs. Its ADSs now trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “IMCR.”
