NEW YORK -- 

Rocket Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: RCKT) (“Rocket”), a leading U.S.-based multi-platform gene therapy company, today announces the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 4,500,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $17.50 per share. The gross proceeds to Rocket from the offering are expected to be $78,750,000, before deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses. Rocket has granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 675,000 shares of its common stock.

All the shares in the offering are to be sold by Rocket. The offering is expected to close on or about April 18, 2019, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Rocket intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to further fund the development of its pipeline of gene therapies for rare diseases, to accelerate the buildout of in-house manufacturing capabilities, and for general corporate purposes.

SVB Leerink, Evercore ISI and William Blair are acting as the joint-bookrunning managers and Oppenheimer & Co. is acting as lead manager for the public offering.

The public offering is being made by Rocket pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 that was previously filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and declared effective by the SEC. A final prospectus supplement relating to and describing the terms of this offering will be filed with the SEC. When available, copies of the final prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus relating to these securities may be obtained from SVB Leerink LLC, Attention: Syndicate Department, One Federal Street, 37th Floor, Boston, MA 02110, by telephone at (800) 808-7525, ext. 6132, or by email syndicate@svbleerink.com; Evercore Group L.L.C., Attention: Equity Capital Markets, 55 East 52nd Street, 36th Floor, New York, NY 10055, by telephone at (888) 474-0200, or by email at ecm.prospectus@evercore.com; and William Blair & Company, L.L.C., Attention: Prospectus Department, 150 North Riverside Plaza, Chicago, IL 60606, by telephone at (800) 621-0687, or by email at prospectus@williamblair.com.
