DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RumbleOn, Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBL) today announced the closing of its previously announced offering of $30 million aggregate principal amount of 6.75% convertible senior notes due 2024 (the “notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) (the "note offering").
JMP Securities LLC acted as sole book-running manager for the note offering. National Securities Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Holdings Corporation (NasdaqCM: NHLD), and Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC acted as the Company’s financial advisors for the note offering.
The aggregate net proceeds from the note offering were approximately $27.3 million, after deducting the initial purchaser’s discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses.
The notes are senior unsecured obligations of RumbleOn, and interest of 6.75% per year will be payable semi-annually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year, beginning on November 1, 2019. The notes will mature on May 1, 2024 unless repurchased, redeemed or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.
RumbleOn intends to use approximately $11.1 million of the net proceeds from the note offering to refinance certain outstanding restrictive indebtedness and the remainder for other general corporate purposes, which may include increased spending on marketing and advertising, and expenditures necessary to grow the business. Pending these uses, RumbleOn may invest the net proceeds in short-term interest-bearing investment grade instruments.
RumbleOn also announced that its previously announced private placement, pursuant to Regulation D under the Act, of 1,900,000 shares of its Class B Common Stock (the “Class B Common Stock”) at a price of $5.00 per share (the "PIPE offering”) is expected to close on May 15, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to result in aggregate net proceeds of approximately $8.8 million, after deducting placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses.
Akerman LLP acted as legal counsel to RumbleOn, and McGuireWoods LLP and Goodwin Procter LLP each acted as legal counsel to JMP Securities LLC.
This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
