Supernus Pharmaceuticals, a former subsidiary of Shire with five product candidates that treat epilepsy, ADHD and depression, announced terms for its IPO on Wednesday. The Rockville, MD-based company, which was spun off in 2005, plans to raise $75 million by offering 5.8 million shares at a price range of $12 to $14. At the midpoint of the proposed range, Supernus Pharmaceuticals would command a market value of $263 million.

Principal stockholders include New Enterprise Associates (45%), OrbiMed (18%), Abingworth Bioventures (18%) and Shire (7%). Supernus Pharmaceuticals, which was founded in 2005 and has yet to generate product revenue, plans to list on the NASDAQ under the symbol SUPN.
