SEATTLE, Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Zillow Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:Z) (ZG) announced today that the initial purchasers of the previously announced private offering of its 0.75% convertible senior notes due 2024 (the "2024 Notes") elected to exercise their option to purchase an additional $73 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes (the "Additional Notes"). The closing of the Additional Notes occurred today. Following today's closing, there is a total of $673 million aggregate principal amount of 2024 Notes outstanding.
The net proceeds from the Additional Notes were approximately $72.0 million after deducting the initial purchasers' discounts and commissions and offering expenses payable by Zillow Group. Zillow Group used approximately $9.1 million of the net proceeds from the Additional Notes to pay the cost of the capped call transactions entered into in connection with the offerings. Zillow Group intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include working capital, sales and marketing activities, general and administrative matters and capital expenditures.
