RH Announces Exercise of Over-Allotment Option for Its 0.00% Convertible Notes Due 2024
CORTE MADERA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RH (NYSE: RH) announced today the exercise of the entire over-allotment option of $50 million aggregate principal amount of its 0.00% convertible notes due 2024, resulting in a total offering size of $350 million. The sale of the notes to the initial purchaser, including the notes to be sold pursuant to the over-allotment option, is expected to settle on September 17, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions.
In connection with the exercise of the over-allotment option, RH has entered into additional convertible note hedge and warrant transactions on terms that have the effect of limiting earnings dilution as a result of the additional convertible notes issuance up to a 100% premium to RH’s closing stock price on September 12, 2019. Under the terms of these transactions, the Company’s shareholders are not expected to experience earnings dilution until the Company’s stock price is above approximately $338.24.
As previously announced, RH expects to use the aggregate net proceeds from the offering to (i) pay the net costs of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions, (ii) retire the Company’s $200 million of outstanding second lien debt, (iii) reduce outstanding borrowings under the Company’s credit facilities and (iv) for general corporate purposes.
The notes will not bear interest and will mature on September 15, 2024, unless earlier purchased by us or converted. The initial conversion rate is 4.7304 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $211.40 per share representing a premium of 25% over RH’s closing stock price on September 12, 2019. The notes will be convertible into cash, shares of RH’s common stock, or a combination thereof, at RH’s election.
