Vocera expects to use offering net proceeds for general corporate purposes, including repayment of outstanding borrowings under credit facility and working capital. The company may also use portion of proceeds to buy or invest in complementary businesses, technologies or assets. Vocera said that it will not receive any proceeds from shares sale by selling stockholders.
