WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inotiv, Inc. (NASDAQ:NOTV) (the “Company”, “We”, “Our” or “Inotiv”), a leading contract research organization specializing in nonclinical and analytical drug discovery and development services, today announced the closing of its offering of $140,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 3.25% convertible senior notes due 2027 (the “notes”), including $15,000,000 of additional notes, in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
