NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Medidata Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDSO) today announced that the initial purchasers for the previously announced private placement of $250 million aggregate principal amount of Medidata's 1.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Notes”) to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), have elected to fully exercise their overallotment option to purchase an additional $37.5 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes. With the exercise of the overallotment option, a total of $287.5 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes will be sold at the closing of the offering, which is expected to occur on August 12, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.

Medidata intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including to fund possible acquisitions of, or investments in, complementary businesses, products, services, technologies and capital expenditures. Medidata has not entered into any agreements or commitments with respect to any acquisitions or investments at this time.

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
