Teladoc Announces Proposed Offering of $225 Million of Convertible Senior Notes due 2025
PURCHASE, NY, May 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teladoc, Inc. (NYSE:TDOC) today announced its intention to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $225 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). In connection with the offering of the Notes, Teladoc expects to grant the initial purchasers of the Notes an option to purchase up to an additional $33.75 million aggregate principal amount of Notes on the same terms and conditions, solely to cover over-allotments.
Teladoc intends to use the proceeds from the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including the pursuit of strategic acquisitions should they arise, and to pay fees, commissions and expenses related to the offering.
The Notes will be unsecured, senior obligations of Teladoc, and interest on the Notes will be payable semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2018. Prior to November 15, 2024, the Notes will be convertible only under certain circumstances and during certain periods. On or after November 15, 2024, the Notes will be convertible at any time until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date. Teladoc may not redeem the Notes prior to May 22, 2022. On or after May 22, 2022, Teladoc may redeem, for cash, all or part of the Notes if the last reported sale price of its common stock equals or exceeds 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading days.
Teladoc will settle conversions of the Notes by paying or delivering, as the case may be, cash, shares of its common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of its common stock, at its election. Final terms of the Notes, including interest rate, conversion rate and other terms, will be determined at the time of pricing.
The offering is being made to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. Neither the Notes nor any shares of Teladoc’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes have been or will be registered under the Securities Act or under any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. persons except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
