CORTE MADERA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Restoration Hardware Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: RH) today announced the pricing of $300 million of 0% convertible senior notes due 2019 at a 35% conversion premium to today’s closing stock price of $85.99. Restoration Hardware also granted the initial purchasers of the notes a 13-day option to purchase up to an additional $50 million of the notes on the same terms and conditions, for a total potential offering size of up to $350 million. Additionally, the Company entered into convertible note hedge and warrant transactions in order to prevent dilution up to a 100% premium to today’s closing stock price. Under the terms of these transactions, the Company’s shareholders are not expected to experience dilution until the Company’s stock price is above approximately $172, which corresponds to a market capitalization in excess of $7 billion based on the current diluted shares outstanding.
The Company intends to use this additional capital to fund its business initiatives including the continuing transformation of its real estate platform, paying down higher interest borrowings from the Company's current credit line, and strengthening the Company's balance sheet over the next five years.
The notes will not bear interest and will be due on June 15, 2019. The initial conversion rate is 8.6143 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $116.09 per share representing a premium of 35% over today’s closing stock price. The notes will be convertible into cash, shares of Restoration Hardware’s common stock, or a combination thereof, at Restoration Hardware’s election.
The immediate use of proceeds from the offering will be to pay the net cost of the convertible note hedge transactions and general corporate purposes, including repayment of all of the outstanding indebtedness under the Company’s credit facility. The sale of the notes to the initial purchasers is expected to settle on June 24, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.
