Coupa to Offer $1.1 Billion Convertible Senior Notes Due 2026
The notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of Coupa, and interest will be payable semi-annually in cash on
The interest rate, initial conversion rate, offering price, and other terms are to be determined by negotiations between Coupa and the initial purchasers.
Coupa expects to use the net proceeds from the offering (1) to repurchase for cash a portion of its outstanding convertible notes due 2023 (the "2023 notes"), (2) to pay the cost of the capped call transactions as described below and (3) for general corporate purposes, potential acquisitions, strategic transactions and working capital.
If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, Coupa intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the sale of the additional notes to enter into additional capped call transactions with the capped call counterparties and for general corporate purposes.
Coupa may redeem all or any portion of the notes, at its option, on or after
Holders of notes may require Coupa to repurchase their notes upon the occurrence of certain events that constitute a fundamental change under the indenture governing the notes at a purchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date of repurchase. In connection with certain corporate events or if Coupa issues a notice of redemption, it will, under certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate for holders who elect to convert their notes in connection with such corporate event or during the relevant redemption period.
In connection with the pricing of the notes, Coupa expects to enter into privately negotiated capped call transactions with one or more of the initial purchasers of the notes and/or their respective affiliates and/or other financial institutions (the "capped call counterparties"). The capped call transactions will initially cover, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, the number of shares of Coupa common stock that will initially underlie the notes, assuming the initial purchasers do not exercise their option to purchase additional notes. The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce or offset potential dilution to holders of Coupa's common stock upon conversion of the notes and/or offset the potential cash payments that Coupa could be required to make in excess of the principal amount of any converted notes upon conversion thereof, with such reduction and/ or offset subject to a cap based on the cap price. If the initial purchasers of the notes exercise their option to purchase additional notes, Coupa intends to enter into additional capped call transactions with capped call counterparties that would initially cover, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, the number of shares of Coupa common stock that will initially underlie the notes purchased by the initial purchasers pursuant to their option to purchase additional notes.
In connection with establishing their initial hedge of the capped call transactions, the capped call counterparties have advised Coupa that they and/or their respective affiliates expect to enter into various derivative transactions with respect to Coupa common stock and/or purchase Coupa 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 Coupa common stock or the notes concurrently with, or shortly after, the pricing of the notes.
In addition, the capped call counterparties and/or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to Coupa common stock and/or purchasing or selling Coupa common stock in secondary market transactions following the pricing of the notes and prior to the maturity of the notes. This activity could decrease (or avoid an increase in) the market price of Coupa 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 amount and value of the consideration that noteholders will receive upon conversion of such notes.
In connection with any repurchase of the 2023 notes (the "repurchase transactions"), Coupa expects that holders of the outstanding 2023 notes that are being repurchased and have hedged their equity price risk with respect to such notes (the "hedged holders") will, concurrently with the pricing of the notes, unwind their hedge positions by buying Coupa stock and/or entering into or unwinding various derivative transactions with respect to Coupa stock. The amount of Coupa common stock to be purchased by the hedged holders is likely to be substantial in relation to the historic average daily trading volume of Coupa common stock. If it is, this activity by the hedged holders will increase the effective conversion price of the notes.
This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities (including the shares of Coupa common stock, if any, into which the notes are convertible) and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
The notes and any shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in
