SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DexCom, Inc. (Nasdaq: DXCM) (“DexCom”) announced today that it intends to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $300 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 (the “notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). DexCom also intends to grant the initial purchasers of the notes a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $45 million aggregate principal amount of notes solely to cover over-allotments, if any.
The notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of DexCom, and interest will be payable semi-annually in arrears. The notes will mature on May 15, 2022, unless earlier converted, repurchased or redeemed in accordance with the terms of the notes. Prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the business day immediately preceding February 15, 2022, the notes will be convertible at the option of holders of the notes only upon satisfaction of certain conditions and during certain periods, and thereafter, at any time until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the business day immediately preceding the maturity date. Upon conversion, the notes may be settled in shares of DexCom’s common stock, cash or a combination of cash and shares of the common stock, at the election of DexCom. Prior to May 15, 2020, the notes will not be redeemable. On or after May 15, 2020, DexCom may redeem for cash all or part of the notes, at its option, if the last reported sale price of DexCom’s common stock has been at least 140% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which DexCom provides notice of redemption.
Holders of the notes will have the right to require DexCom to repurchase for cash all or a portion of their notes at 100% of their principal amount, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, upon the occurrence of a fundamental change (as defined in the indenture relating to the notes). DexCom will also be required to increase the conversion rate for holders who convert their notes in connection with certain fundamental changes occurring prior to the maturity date or following delivery by us of a notice of redemption.
The interest rate, conversion rate, offering price and other terms are to be determined upon pricing of the notes.
DexCom expects to use the net proceeds of the offering of the notes to repay $75 million of borrowings under its existing credit facility and the remainder for general corporate purposes and capital expenditures, including working capital needs and buildout of its manufacturing facility in Arizona. DexCom may also use the net proceeds to expand its current business through in-licensing or acquisitions of, or investments in, other businesses, products or technologies; however, DexCom does not have any commitments with respect to any such acquisitions or investments at this time.
This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities (including the shares of DexCom’s 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. Any offers of the notes will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum.
The notes will be offered to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. The notes and any shares of DexCom’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been and are not expected to be registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
