|By Business Wire
|August 7, 2014 06:31 AM EDT
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.
The offering is being made pursuant to a registration statement
(including a prospectus for the offering) filed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 5, 2014, and a pricing
