BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNCR) (the “Company”), a mobile innovation leader that provides cloud solutions and software-based activation for connected devices across the globe, announced today that it has priced $200.0 million aggregate principal amount of 0.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019, which will be sold in an underwritten public offering. The Company also granted to the underwriters of the notes an option to purchase up to an additional $30.0 million aggregate principal amount of notes to cover over-allotments. The sale is expected to close on August 12, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions. Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.
The notes will pay interest semiannually at a rate of 0.75% per year until maturity. The notes will be convertible at the option of the holders, at any time on or prior to the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, into shares of the Company’s common stock at an initial conversion rate of 18.8072 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $53.17 per share, subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events. The initial conversion price represents a conversion premium of approximately 37.5% over the last reported sale price of $38.67 per share of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on August 6, 2014.
The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Company. The notes will mature on August 15, 2019, unless earlier repurchased or converted.
The Company estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $193.7 million (or approximately $222.9 million if the underwriters exercise in full their option to purchase additional notes) after payment of the underwriters' discounts and offering expenses. The Company expects to use the net proceeds of the note offering to repay a portion or all of the Company’s outstanding indebtedness under its revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes, including potential acquisitions and strategic transactions.
