NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MultiPlan Corporation (NYSE:MPLN) (“MultiPlan” or the “Company”), announced that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-3 (the “resale registration statement”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 4, 2021 relating to the offer and resale from time to time of shares of its Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of its $1,300 million aggregate principal amount of 6.00% / 7.00% Convertible Senior PIK Toggle Notes due 2027 (the “Convertible Notes”).
The actions the Company is taking are required under the customary registration rights agreement entered into when the Convertible Notes were originally issued in a private placement completed on October 8, 2020, and the resale registration statement was required to be filed at this time pursuant to such registration rights agreement without any further action by the holders of Convertible Notes.
The Convertible Notes are currently convertible at the option of the holders, at the initial conversion rate of 76.9231 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock per $1,000 in principal amount of the Convertible Notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $13.00 per share of Company Class A common stock). If all of the $1,300 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes were converted into shares of common stock, the holders would receive shares that would have been worth an aggregate of approximately $396 million at the closing stock price on November 5, 2021. The Company is not aware of any holder of Convertible Notes requesting to convert into shares at this time.
A registration statement relating to the offer and resale of shares of Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Notes has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has yet to become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This communication shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction.
