MOORESTOWN, N.J., Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (TRHC) (“TRHC”) today announced its intention to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $250 million principal amount of convertible senior subordinated notes due 2026 (the “notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”). TRHC also expects to grant the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase, within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the date on which the notes are first issued, up to an additional $37.5 million principal amount of the notes, solely to cover over-allotments, if any.
The notes will be senior subordinated unsecured obligations of TRHC and are expected to pay interest semi-annually and be convertible into shares of TRHC’s common stock, cash or a combination thereof at TRHC’s option. The notes will mature on February 15, 2026, unless earlier converted or repurchased. The interest rate, initial conversion rate and other terms of the notes are to be determined upon pricing of the offering.
TRHC intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to pay the cost of the convertible note hedge transactions described below (after such cost is partially offset by the proceeds from the sale of the warrant transactions, as described below), to repay amounts outstanding under its existing revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes, which may include potential future acquisitions.
In connection with the offering, TRHC expects to enter into convertible note hedge transactions with one or more of the initial purchasers of the notes or their respective affiliates (the “option counterparties”). TRHC also expects to enter into warrant transactions with the option counterparties. The convertible note hedge transactions are expected generally to reduce the potential dilution to TRHC’s common stock upon conversion of the notes and/or offset any potential cash payments TRHC is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted notes, as the case may be. The warrant transactions could separately have a dilutive effect on TRHC’s common stock to the extent that the market price per share of TRHC’s common stock exceeds the strike price of the warrants. If the initial purchasers exercise their over-allotment option, TRHC expects to enter into additional convertible note hedge and warrant transactions with the option counterparties.
TRHC has been advised that, in connection with establishing their initial hedges of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions, the option counterparties or their affiliates expect to purchase shares of TRHC’s common stock and/or enter into various derivative transactions with respect to TRHC’s 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 TRHC’s common stock.
In addition, the option counterparties or their affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to TRHC’s common stock and/or purchasing or selling TRHC’s common stock or its other securities in secondary market transactions following the pricing of the notes and prior to the maturity of the notes (and are likely to do so during any observation period related to a conversion of notes). This activity could also cause or avoid an increase or a decrease in the market price of TRHC’s common stock or the notes, which could affect noteholders’ ability to convert the notes and, to the extent the activity occurs during any observation period related to a conversion of notes, it could affect the number of shares and value of the consideration that noteholders will receive upon conversion of the notes.
Neither the notes nor the shares of TRHC’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes, if any, have been, nor will be, registered under the Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of any of the notes in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
