DANBURY, Conn. and WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD), a company focused on the development and commercialization of inhaled therapeutic products and devices for patients with endocrine and orphan lung diseases, announced today that it has repaid in full all outstanding indebtedness under both its credit and security agreement with MidCap Financial Trust (the “Loan Agreement”) and its convertible promissory note issued to Mann Group LLC (the “Note”).

On April 1, 2024, MannKind made a payment to the lenders under the Loan Agreement of approximately $31.6 million, including a contractually obligated exit fee of $2.8 million and a prepayment fee of approximately $0.3 million, in full satisfaction of all of the Company’s debt obligations under the Loan Agreement, which would have matured on August 1, 2025. In connection with the repayment of outstanding indebtedness by MannKind, all liens, mortgages and security interests in any assets or property securing the obligations under the Loan Agreement were automatically terminated and released and MannKind and its subsidiaries were automatically released from all guarantees.

In addition, on April 2, 2024, MannKind satisfied its obligations under the Note in exchange for payment to the Mann Group of (i) approximately $8.9 million and (ii) the issuance of 1.5 million shares of MannKind’s common stock. Upon receipt of this consideration, all indebtedness under the Note was satisfied in full and all obligations under the Note were automatically terminated.

“Repaying the MidCap loan agreement eliminates our most expensive debt going forward and releases our assets from their security interests,” said Michael Castagna, PharmD, Chief Executive Officer of MannKind Corporation. “In addition, we believe that our stock price is currently undervalued, so we took the opportunity to repay the Mann Group debt through a partial conversion that is expected to reduce future potential dilution by over two million shares.”
