The closing of the offering is expected to take place on or about March 19, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. In addition, under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, we have granted the Underwriters an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase up to an additional 1,250,000 shares of common stock at a price of $3.948 per share to cover overallotments, if any.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by us, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of Cerus and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions.
