Haemonetics Prices $435.0 Million Convertible Senior Notes Offering
The notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of Haemonetics. The notes will not bear regular interest, and the principal amount of the notes will not accrete. The notes will mature on
The notes will not be redeemable at Haemonetics' election before
If a "fundamental change" (as defined in the indenture for the notes) occurs, then noteholders may require Haemonetics to repurchase their notes for cash. The repurchase price will be equal to the principal amount of the notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid special interest, if any, to, but excluding, the applicable repurchase date.
Haemonetics estimates the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately
In connection with the pricing of the notes, Haemonetics has entered into privately negotiated capped call transactions with the initial purchasers or their affiliates and other financial institutions (the "option counterparties"). The capped call transactions will cover, subject to anti-dilution adjustments substantially similar to those applicable to the notes, the number of shares of Haemonetics' common stock initially underlying the notes. If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, Haemonetics expects to enter into additional capped call transactions with the option counterparties.
The cap price of the capped call transactions will initially be
The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce or offset the potential dilution to Haemonetics' common stock upon any conversion of the notes and/or to offset any potential cash payments Haemonetics is required to make in excess of the principal amount of the converted notes, as the case may be, upon conversion of the notes. If, however, the market price per share of Haemonetics' common stock, as measured under the terms of the capped call transactions, exceeds the cap price of the capped call transactions, there would nevertheless be dilution and/or there would not be an offset of such potential cash payments, in each case, to the extent that such market price exceeds the cap price of the capped call transactions.
Haemonetics expects that, in connection with establishing their initial hedges of the capped call transactions, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates will enter into various derivative transactions with respect to Haemonetics' common stock and/or purchase shares of Haemonetics' common stock concurrently with or shortly after the pricing of the notes. This activity could increase (or reduce the size of any decrease in) the market price of Haemonetics' common stock or the notes at that time.
In addition, Haemonetics expects that the option counterparties or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to Haemonetics' common stock and/or purchasing or selling Haemonetics' common stock or other securities of Haemonetics in secondary market transactions following the pricing of the notes and from time to time prior to the maturity of the notes (and are likely to do so following any conversion of the notes, any repurchase of the notes by Haemonetics on any fundamental change repurchase date, any redemption date or any other date on which the notes are retired by Haemonetics, in each case if Haemonetics exercises its option to terminate the relevant portion of the capped call transactions, where such termination is at the option of Haemonetics). This activity could also cause or avoid an increase or a decrease in the market price of Haemonetics' common stock or the notes, which could affect a noteholder's ability to convert the notes, and, to the extent the activity occurs during any observation period related to a conversion of the notes, it could affect the number of shares, if any, and value of the consideration that noteholders will receive upon conversion of the notes.
The notes will be offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. The offer and sale of the notes and any shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or any other securities laws, and unless so registered, the notes and any such shares cannot be offered or sold except pursuant to an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, such registration requirements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, the notes or any shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes, nor will there be any offer or sale of the notes or any such shares, in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, sale or solicitation would be unlawful.
