PROS Holdings, Inc. Announces Private Offering of $150 Million of Convertible Senior Notes Due 2027
PROS Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PRO) (the “Company”) today announced that it intends to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $150.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2027 (the “Convertible Notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
The Convertible Notes will be unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of the Company and are expected to pay interest semiannually. The Convertible Notes will mature on September 15, 2027, unless converted, redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms prior to such date. Prior to June 15, 2027, the Convertible Notes will be convertible only upon the satisfaction of certain conditions and during certain periods, and thereafter at any time prior to the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date regardless of these conditions. The Convertible Notes will be convertible into cash, shares of the Company’s common stock or a combination of cash and shares of the Company’s common stock, at the Company’s election. The initial conversion rate, interest rate and other terms of the Convertible Notes will be determined at the time of pricing in negotiations with the initial purchaser of the Convertible Notes.
In connection with the offering, the Company intends to enter into privately negotiated capped call transactions with certain option counterparties. The capped call transactions will cover, subject to anti-dilution adjustments, the number of shares of common stock underlying the Convertible Notes sold in the offering. The capped call transactions are generally expected to reduce potential dilution to the Company’s common stock upon conversion of the Convertible Notes and/or offset any cash payments the Company is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted notes, as the case may be.
The Company intends to use a portion of the net proceeds of the offering to pay the cost of the capped call transactions. The Company intends to use the remaining net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including working capital, capital expenditures, potential acquisitions and strategic transactions.
This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Convertible Notes or the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Notes, if any, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
