BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, Inc. (Nasdaq: EVBG) announced today an underwritten offering, subject to market and other conditions, of $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2022 (the Notes). Everbridge also expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $15.0 million aggregate principal amount of Notes, solely to cover over-allotments.
The Notes will be convertible into cash, shares of Everbridge's common stock or a combination of cash and shares, at Everbridge's election. The interest rate, initial conversion rate and other terms of the Notes will be determined at the time of the pricing of the offering. In connection with the offering of the Notes, Everbridge expects to enter into one or more privately negotiated capped call transactions with the underwriters, and/or their respective affiliates or other financial institutions (the option counterparties). The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce potential dilution to our common stock (the Shares) upon any conversion of Notes and/or offset any cash payments Everbridge is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted Notes, as the case may be, with such reduction and/or offset subject to a cap. If the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option, Everbridge expects to enter into additional capped call transactions with the option counterparties.
Everbridge intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to pay the cost of the capped call transactions, and the remainder of the net proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes. Everbridge may also use a portion of the proceeds for continued geographic expansion, as well as for acquisitions or strategic investments in complementary businesses or technologies, although it does not currently have any plans for any such acquisitions, investments or expansion.
In connection with establishing their initial hedges of the capped call transactions, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates expect to enter into various derivative transactions with respect to the Shares 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 the Shares or the Notes at that time.
In addition, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to the Shares and/or purchasing or selling the Shares or other securities of Everbridge in secondary market transactions following the pricing of the Notes and prior to the maturity of the Notes (and are likely to do so during any observation period related to a conversion of Notes). This activity could also cause or avoid an increase or a decrease in the market price of the Shares or the Notes, which could affect the ability of holders 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 number of Shares and value of the consideration that holders will receive upon conversion of the Notes.
Concurrently with the offering of the Notes, a selling stockholder expects to offer 650,000 Shares for resale in a separate underwritten offering. The selling stockholder also expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 97,500 Shares. Everbridge will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of the Shares. The closing of the offering of the Shares is not conditioned upon the closing of the offering of the Notes, and the closing of the offering of the Notes is not conditioned upon the closing of the offering of the Shares.
BofA Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse are acting as joint book-running managers for each of the offerings. Stifel, KeyBanc Capital Markets, Canaccord Genuity, Needham & Company, Northland Capital Markets, Raymond James and William Blair are acting as co-managers.
The offering of the Notes and of the Shares have each been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. For additional information relating to the offerings, Everbridge refers you to its Registration Statement on Form S-3, which it filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on October 2, 2017 and which became effective on October 13, 2017.
