BREA, Calif., Aug. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Envista Holdings Corporation (NYSE: NVST) ("Envista") today announced the pricing of its offering of $435,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of its 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028 (the "notes") in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The issuance and sale of the notes are scheduled to settle on August 10, 2023, subject to customary closing conditions. Envista also granted the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase, for settlement within a period of 13 days from, and including, the date the notes are first issued, up to an additional $65,250,000 aggregate principal amount of notes.
The notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of Envista and will accrue interest at a rate of 1.75% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on February 15, 2024. The notes will mature on August 15, 2028, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased. Before February 15, 2028, noteholders will have the right to convert their notes only upon the occurrence of certain events. From and after February 15, 2028, noteholders may convert their notes at any time at their election until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately before the maturity date. Envista will settle conversions by (i) paying the principal amount of any such converted notes in cash and (ii) paying or delivering, as applicable, any conversion value in excess of the principal amount of such notes in cash or a combination of cash and shares of Envista's common stock, at its election, based on the applicable conversion rate(s). However, upon conversion of any notes, the conversion value, which will be determined over a period of multiple trading days, will be paid in cash up to at least the principal amount of the notes being converted. The initial conversion rate is 21.5942 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which represents an initial conversion price of approximately $46.31 per share of common stock. The initial conversion price represents a premium of approximately 32.5% over the last reported sale price of $34.95 per share of Envista's common stock on August 7, 2023. The conversion rate and conversion price will be subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events.
The notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, for cash at Envista's option at any time, and from time to time, on or after August 17, 2026 and on or before the 40th scheduled trading day immediately before the maturity date, but only if the last reported sale price per share of Envista's common stock exceeds 130% of the conversion price for a specified period of time. The redemption price will be equal to the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.
If a "fundamental change" (as defined in the indenture for the notes) occurs, then, subject to a limited exception, noteholders may require Envista to repurchase their notes for cash. The repurchase price will be equal to the principal amount of the notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the applicable repurchase date.
The notes have been rated Baa3 by Moody's. This rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold the notes. This rating may be revised or withdrawn at any time and should be evaluated independently of any other rating.
Envista estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $422.6 million (or approximately $486.1 million if the initial purchasers fully exercise their option to purchase additional notes), after deducting the initial purchasers' discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses. Envista expects to use approximately $403.0 million of the net proceeds from the offering to pay the cash portion of the consideration in the concurrent exchange transactions described below. Envista intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include subsequently retiring the 2.375% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the "2025 Notes") by exchanges or redemptions.
Concurrently with the offering, in separate, privately negotiated transactions, Envista expects to enter into exchange agreements with a limited number of holders of the 2025 Notes to exchange or repurchase approximately $401.2 million principal amount of the 2025 Notes for aggregate consideration consisting of approximately $403.0 in cash, which includes accrued interest on the 2025 Notes, and approximately 8.4 million shares of Envista's common stock. Following the completion of the offering, Envista may engage in additional exchanges, or Envista may repurchase or induce conversions, of the 2025 Notes. Holders of the 2025 Notes that participate in any of these exchanges, repurchases or induced conversions may purchase or sell shares of Envista's common stock in the open market to unwind any hedge positions they may have with respect to the 2025 Notes or to hedge their exposure in connection with these transactions. These activities may adversely affect the trading price of Envista's common stock and the notes. Moreover, market activities by holders of the 2025 Notes that participate in the concurrent exchanges may have impacted the initial conversion price of the notes.
In connection with issuing the 2025 Notes, Envista entered into capped call transactions (the "Existing Capped Call Transactions") with certain financial institutions (the "Existing Option Counterparties"). In connection with the intended exchange of the 2025 Notes, Envista expects to enter into agreements with the Existing Option Counterparties to terminate a portion of the Existing Capped Call Transactions in a notional amount corresponding to the amount of 2025 Notes exchanged or repurchased. In connection with any termination of any of the Existing Capped Call Transactions, Envista expects the Existing Option Counterparties or their respective affiliates to unwind a portion of their related hedge positions by entering into, or unwinding, derivatives transactions with respect to Envista's common stock economically equivalent to buying shares of Envista's common stock and/or buying shares of Envista's common stock in the open market or in secondary market transactions. This hedge unwind activity could increase (or reduce the size of any decrease in) the market price of Envista's common stock, the 2025 Notes or the notes. Envista cannot predict the magnitude of the market activities described above or the overall effect they will have on the price of Envista's common stock, the 2025 Notes or the notes.
The offer and sale of the notes and any shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes or issuable pursuant to the concurrent exchange transactions have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or any other securities laws, and the notes and any such shares cannot be offered or sold except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any other applicable securities laws. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, the notes or any shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes or issuable pursuant to the concurrent exchange transactions, nor will there be any sale of the notes or any such shares, in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, sale or solicitation would be unlawful.
