LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH) (the “Company”) today announced that on May 22, 2017 it priced $330 million aggregate principal amount of its senior notes due 2025 (the “Notes”), in a private offering to “qualified institutional buyers” pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain persons outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The offering is expected to close on or about June 6, 2017, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions (the “Settlement Date”).
The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 4.875% per year. Interest will be payable semi-annually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing December 15, 2017, and will accrue from the Settlement Date. The Notes will mature on June 15, 2025.
The Company estimates that after deducting fees and expenses payable by the Company, the net proceeds from the issuance and sale of the Notes will be approximately $326 million (the “Net Proceeds”). No later than ten business days after the issue date, the Net Proceeds are to be deposited into a newly-formed segregated deposit account in the name of the Company, and such Net Proceeds will be invested (and may be reinvested) in cash and cash equivalents. Such Net Proceeds will be used by the Company (i) on or prior to August 20, 2018, to (a) redeem, repurchase, repay, tender for, or acquire or retire for value (whether through one or more tender offers, open market repurchases, redemptions or similar transactions) all or any portion of the Company’s 1.625% Convertible Senior Notes due 2044 (the “1.625% Convertible Notes”) or to satisfy the cash portion of any consideration due upon any conversion of the 1.625% Convertible Notes pursuant to the requirements contained in the indenture governing the 1.625% Convertible Notes, and/or (b) make any interest payments due on all or any portion of the Notes, (ii) on or after August 20, 2018, to repurchase all or any portion of the 1.625% Convertible Notes that the Company is obligated to repurchase pursuant to the requirements contained in the indenture governing the 1.625% Convertible Notes and (iii) subsequent to August 20, 2018 (or such earlier date in the event that there are no longer any 1.625% Convertible Notes outstanding), in any other manner not otherwise prohibited by the indenture governing the Notes, subject to the Company complying with clauses (i) or (ii) prior to any such amounts being used or applied in accordance with this clause (iii). For payments made pursuant to the foregoing clauses (i) or, to the extent applicable, (ii), amounts permitted to be released from the segregated account shall include amounts necessary to pay principal, any accrued and unpaid interest due on the date of any redemption, repurchase, repayment, tender, acquisition or retirement for value or to satisfy the cash portion of any consideration due upon any conversion of the 1.625% Convertible Notes, premiums (including tender premiums) and fees and expenses incurred in connection therewith. The funds deposited into the above-referenced segregated deposit account will initially be classified as non-current assets on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the Notes and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction where such offer, solicitation or sale is prohibited.
