Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

As previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on October 19, 2018, Corsicanto II Designated Activity Company (“Corsicanto II”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amarin Corporation plc (the “Company”), gave notice on October 19, 2018 to mandatorily exchange the $30.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its January 2017 3.50% Exchangeable Senior Notes due 2047 (the “Notes”) into the Company’s American Depositary Shares (the “Shares”) representing the Company’s ordinary shares, par value £0.50 per share on November 2, 2018, subject to the terms and conditions of the Indenture, dated January 25, 2017, by and among Corsicanto II, the Company, and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee, governing the Notes.

The mandatory exchange of the Notes became effective on November 2, 2018, and was settled on November 7, 2018. In accordance with the terms of the Indenture governing the Notes, the final as-adjusted exchange rate was 257.2016 Shares per $1,000 of principal amount of the Notes. This exchange rate resulted in approximately 7,716,048 Shares being issued in aggregate (before any payment of cash in lieu of fractional Shares) in exchange for the Notes.

The Company issued the Shares pursuant to the exchange of the Notes in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The mandatory exchange of the Notes retired all of the outstanding Notes, and the issuance of the Shares also satisfied the Company’s obligations with respect to any accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes as of the effective date of the mandatory exchange.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
