On January 17, AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the Company) entered into an underwriting agreement (the Underwriting Agreement) with J.P. Morgan Securities LLC acting for itself and as representative of the underwriters named therein (collectively, the Underwriters), relating to an underwritten public offering of 6,667,000 shares (the Shares) of the Companys common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the Common Stock). All of the shares are being sold by the Company. The offering price to the public is $7.50 per share, and the Underwriters have agreed to purchase the Shares from the Company pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement at a price of $7.05 per share. After underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses, the Company expects to receive net proceeds of approximately $46.7 million (assuming the Underwriters over-allotment option referenced below is not exercised). Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase up to an additional 1,000,050 shares of Common Stock to cover over-allotments, if any, at the public offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions.
