Evolent Health, Inc. Announces Pricing of $110.0 Million of Convertible Senior Notes Due 2021

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolent Health, Inc. (NYSE: EVH), a company providing an integrated value-based care platform to the nation's leading health systems and physician organizations ("Evolent Health"), today announced the pricing of $110.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2.00% convertible senior notes due 2021.  The notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").   Evolent Health has also granted the initial purchasers in the offering a 30 day option to purchase up to an additional $15.0 million aggregate principal amount of notes. 

Interest on the notes is payable semiannually in arrears on June 1 and December 1 of each year, beginning on June 1, 2017, at a rate equal to 2.00% per annum.  The notes will mature on December 1, 2021 unless earlier repurchased or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.

The notes are convertible into shares of Evolent Health's Class A common stock, based on an initial conversion rate of 41.6082 shares of Class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $24.03 per share of Class A common stock.  The initial conversion price represents a premium of approximately 27.50% over the closing price of the Class A common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on November 29, 2016. 

Holders of the notes may require Evolent Health to repurchase their notes upon the occurrence of a fundamental change at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes being repurchased, plus any accrued and unpaid interest.

Evolent Health intends to loan the net proceeds from this offering to the subsidiary through which its operations are conducted, Evolent Health LLC.  Evolent Health LLC is expected to use such net proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes. 

Consummation of the sale of the notes is subject to customary closing conditions, and there can be no assurance that the offering of the notes will be consummated.  Settlement is expected to occur on December 5, 2016.

The notes and the Class A common stock of Evolent Health issuable upon conversion of the notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described herein, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities law of any such jurisdiction.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
