Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 6, 2014, Celgene Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), entered into a previously announced underwriting agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (collectively, the "Underwriters"), providing for its underwritten public offering of $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 2.250% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "2019 Notes"), $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 3.625% notes due 2024 (the "2024 Notes") and $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.625% Senior Notes due 2044 (the "2044 Notes," and together with the 2019 Notes and the 2024 Notes, collectively, the "Notes").

On May 15, 2014, the Notes were issued under an Indenture (the "Indenture") between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee.

The 2019 Notes will bear interest at a rate of 2.250% per year, payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2014, the 2024 Notes will bear interest at a rate of 3.625% per year, payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2014 and the 2044 Notes will bear interest at a rate of 4.625% per year, payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2014.

The Notes will be unsecured, senior obligations and rank equal in right of payment to any of the Company's future senior unsecured indebtedness; senior in right of payment to any of the Company's future subordinated indebtedness; and effectively subordinated in right of payment to any of the Company's subsidiaries' obligations (including secured and unsecured obligations) and subordinated in right of payment to the Company's secured obligations, to the extent of the assets securing such obligations.

The Indenture contains covenants limiting the Company's ability to: (1) create liens; or (2) merge, or consolidate or transfer, sell or lease all or substantially all of the Company's assets. These covenants are subject to important limitations and exceptions that are described in the Indenture.

The Notes were offered pursuant to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-191998), which became immediately effective upon its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on October 30, 2013. A preliminary Prospectus Supplement dated May 6, 2014 relating to the Notes was filed with the SEC on May 6, 2014, and a final Prospectus Supplement dated May 6, 2014 was filed with the SEC on May 7, 2014.

The net proceeds from the sale of the Notes are estimated to be approximately $2,470.6 million (after deducting underwriting discounts and estimated offering expenses payable by us).

Some of the Underwriters and their affiliates have engaged in, and may in the future engage in, financial advisory, investment banking and other commercial dealings in the ordinary course of business with the Company, or its affiliates, including acting as lenders under various loan facilities. They have received, and may in the future receive, customary fees and commissions for these transactions.
