Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNCR) (the “Company”), a mobile innovation leader that provides cloud solutions and software-based activation for connected devices across the globe, announced today that it has priced $200.0 million aggregate principal amount of 0.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019, which will be sold in an underwritten public offering. The Company also granted to the underwriters of the notes an option to purchase up to an additional $30.0 million aggregate principal amount of notes to cover over-allotments. The sale is expected to close on August 12, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions. Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.
The notes will pay interest semiannually at a rate of 0.75% per year until maturity. The notes will be convertible at the option of the holders, at any time on or prior to the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, into shares of the Company’s common stock at an initial conversion rate of 18.8072 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $53.17 per share, subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events. The initial conversion price represents a conversion premium of approximately 37.5% over the last reported sale price of $38.67 per share of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on August 6, 2014.
The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Company. The notes will mature on August 15, 2019, unless earlier repurchased or converted.
The Company estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $193.7 million (or approximately $222.9 million if the underwriters exercise in full their option to purchase additional notes) after payment of the underwriters' discounts and offering expenses. The Company expects to use the net proceeds of the note offering to repay a portion or all of the Company’s outstanding indebtedness under its revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes, including potential acquisitions and strategic transactions.
This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities (including any shares of the Company’s common stock 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.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
