Each share of Series E convertible preferred stock is non-voting and convertible into 1,000 shares of Cascadian Therapeutics common stock, provided that conversion will be prohibited if, as a result, the holder and its affiliates would beneficially own more than 19.99% of the common stock then outstanding.

The offerings are being conducted as separate public offerings by means of separate prospectus supplements, and neither offering is contingent upon the consummation of the other.

Aggregate gross proceeds from the offerings, before deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and estimated expenses, are expected to be approximately $82.5 million. Cascadian Therapeutics plans to use the net proceeds from these offerings to fund the tucatinib HER2CLIMB pivotal trial, to support the development of tucatinib in other indications through Company or investigator-sponsored trials, as well as for working capital and other general corporate purposes. The offerings are expected to close on or about January 27, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions.
