Digital Turbine Announces Pricing of $16 Million Offering of 8.75% Convertible Senior Notes Due 2020
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Digital Turbine, Inc. (APPS) today announced the pricing of $16 million aggregate principal amount of its 8.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”) in a private placement. The sale of the Notes to the initial purchaser is expected to settle on September 28, 2016, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes and the accompanying warrants described below will be offered by the initial purchaser only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and to a limited number of institutional accredited investors within the meaning of subparagraph (a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) of Rule 501 under the Securities Act.
The net proceeds of the offering, after deducting the initial purchaser’s discounts and commissions and the estimated offering expenses payable by Digital Turbine, are expected to be approximately $14.3 million, and will be used to repay approximately $11 million of secured indebtedness and for general corporate purposes.
The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Digital Turbine, and will bear interest at a rate of 8.75% per year, payable semiannually in arrears on September 15th and March 15th of each year, beginning on March 15, 2017. The Notes will be unconditionally guaranteed by certain of Digital Turbine’s wholly-owned domestic and foreign subsidiaries, and will mature on September 23, 2020, unless converted, repurchased or redeemed in accordance with their terms prior to such date.
The Notes will be convertible by the holders at their option at any time prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the stated maturity date, and upon conversion, the holders will receive shares of Digital Turbine common stock. The initial conversion rate for the Notes will be 733.14 shares per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of $1.364 per share of common stock and represents a 10% conversion premium over the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market on September 22, 2016, which was $1.24 per share. The conversion rate and the conversion price will be subject to adjustment in certain events.
Each purchaser of the Notes will also receive warrants to purchase 256.60 shares of the Company’s common stock for each $1,000 in Notes purchased, or up to 4.2 million warrants, in aggregate. The warrants will be immediately exercisable on the date of issuance at an initial exercise price of $1.364 per share and will expire on September 23, 2020.
The Notes, accompanying warrants, and shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes or issuable upon exercise of the warrants are not registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction’s securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state or other jurisdictions’ securities laws.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, warrants or any other securities, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the Notes, warrants or any other securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
