On May 22, 2018, 2U, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with the several underwriters named therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”) for whom Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC are acting as representatives, relating to the underwritten registered public offering of an aggregate of 3,333,334 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”) at a public offering price of $90 per share. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company also granted the Underwriters an option exercisable for 30 days from the date of the Underwriting Agreement to purchase, at the public offering price less any underwriting discounts and commissions, up to an additional 500,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Option”).

 

The net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the Shares to be issued and sold by the Company (including pursuant to the Option) are expected to be approximately $287.6 million. The offering closed on May 25, 2018.
