Dropbox, Inc. Announces Upsize and Pricing of $1.306 Billion Convertible Senior Notes Offering

Dropbox, Inc. Announces Upsize and Pricing of $1.306 Billion Convertible Senior Notes Offering

first_img Facebook WhatsApp TAGS  Pinterest Previous articleHouston faces Cleveland on 5-game road slideNext article2021 Global Data Center Infrastructure Solutions Industry – Adoption of Advanced Processors and Servers Sparks Innovation – ResearchAndMarkets.com Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest Local NewsBusiness WhatsAppcenter_img SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 24, 2021– Dropbox, Inc. (“Dropbox”) (NASDAQ: DBX) today announced the pricing of $653,000,000 aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2026 (the “2026 Notes”) and $653,000,000 aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2028 (the “2028 Notes” and, together with the 2026 Notes, the “Notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”). The aggregate principal amount of the offering was increased from the previously announced offering size of $1.135 billion. Dropbox also granted the initial purchasers of the Notes a 13-day option to purchase up to an additional $65,300,000 aggregate principal amount of 2026 Notes and up to an additional $65,300,000 aggregate principal amount of 2028 Notes. The sale of the Notes to the initial purchasers is expected to settle on February 26, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to result in approximately $1,286 million in net proceeds to Dropbox (or approximately $1,414 million if the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes in full) after deducting the initial purchasers’ discount and estimated offering expenses payable by Dropbox. The Notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of Dropbox. The 2026 Notes and the 2028 Notes are each referred to herein as a series of notes. The Notes will not bear interest and the principal of each series of Notes will not accrete. The 2026 Notes will mature on March 1, 2026 and the 2028 Notes will mature on March 1, 2028, in each case unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased. Dropbox intends to use approximately $58.6 million of the net proceeds of the offering of the Notes to pay the cost of the convertible note hedge transactions described below, after such cost is partially offset by the proceeds of the warrant transactions described below, approximately $200 million of the net proceeds from this offering to repurchase shares of Dropbox’s Class A common stock (“Class A common stock”) at yesterday’s closing price of $23.18 per share from institutional investors through one of the initial purchasers or their affiliates, as Dropbox’s agent, concurrently with the pricing of this offering, and to use the remaining proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes, including repurchases of its Class A common stock. The 2026 Notes may be converted at an initial conversion rate of 26.1458 shares of Dropbox’s Class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of such notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $38.25 per share of Class A common stock), and the 2028 Notes may be converted at an initial conversion rate of 28.2889 shares of Class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of such notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $35.35 per share of Class A common stock). Prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding December 1, 2025, in the case of the 2026 Notes, and prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding December 1, 2027, in the case of the 2028 Notes, the Notes will be convertible at the option of the noteholders only upon the satisfaction of specified conditions and during certain periods. On or after December 1, 2025 in the case of the 2026 Notes, and on or after December 1, 2027 in the case of the 2028 Notes, to the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the relevant maturity date, a holder of the relevant series of notes may convert all or any portion of its notes of such series regardless of these conditions. For each series of Notes, upon conversion, Dropbox will pay cash up to the aggregate principal amount of Notes to be converted and pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of Dropbox’s Class A common stock or a combination of cash and shares of Dropbox’s Class A common stock, at Dropbox’s election, in respect of the remainder. The last reported sale price of the Class A common stock on February 23, 2021 was $23.18 per share. Dropbox may redeem for cash all or any portion of the Notes, at its option, on or after March 6, 2024, in the case of the 2026 Notes, and on or after March 6, 2025, in the case of the 2028 Notes, if the last reported sale price of Dropbox’s Class A common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price for the relevant series of Notes then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which Dropbox provides notice of redemption at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the relevant series of Notes to be redeemed, plus any accrued and unpaid special interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. In connection with the pricing of the Notes, Dropbox entered into convertible note hedge and warrant transactions with certain of the initial purchasers, their affiliates and other financial institutions (the “option counterparties”). The convertible note hedge transactions are expected generally to reduce the potential dilution to Dropbox’s Class A common stock upon any conversion of the Notes and/or offset any cash payments Dropbox is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted Notes, as the case may be. The warrant transactions would separately have a dilutive effect to the extent that the market value per share of the Class A common stock exceeds the strike price of any warrants unless, subject to the terms of the warrant transactions, Dropbox elects to cash settle the warrants. The strike price of the warrant transactions will initially be approximately $46.36 per share, which represents a premium of 100% over the last reported sale price of the Class A common stock on February 23, 2021, and is subject to certain adjustments under the terms of the warrant transactions. If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, Dropbox intends to enter into additional convertible note hedge and additional warrant transactions relating to the additional notes. In connection with establishing their initial hedge of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates expect to purchase shares of the Class A common stock and/or enter into various derivative transactions with respect to the Class A common stock concurrently with, or shortly after, the pricing of the Notes. This activity could increase (or reduce the size of any decrease in) the market price of the Class A common stock or the Notes at that time. In addition, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to the Class A common stock and/or by purchasing or selling shares of the Class A common stock or other securities of Dropbox in secondary market transactions following the pricing of the Notes and prior to the maturity of the Notes (and are likely to do so during any observation period related to a conversion of the Notes or in connection with any repurchase of Notes by Dropbox). This activity could also cause or avoid an increase or a decrease in the market price of the Class A common stock or the Notes, which could affect the ability of noteholders to convert the Notes and, to the extent the activity occurs during any observation period related to a conversion of the Notes, it could affect the amount and value of the consideration that noteholders will receive upon conversion of such Notes. This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation, or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale is unlawful. The convertible note hedge transactions, warrant transactions, Notes and the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes, if any, have not been, and will not be, registered under the Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Act and applicable state laws.

How to burst the bubble

How to burst the bubble

first_img Previous Article Next Article How to burst the bubbleOn 1 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today Julia Middleton looks at the hidden advantages of external trainingprogrammes and argues that they can break down ‘group-think’ and develop newnetworksOne of the biggest problems facing UK organisations today is ‘group-think’.A strong corporate culture is commendable, but if it becomes too strong, when”the way we do things around here” takes over, it can begin tostagnate innovation and creativity. Most people grow up in ‘bubbles’ – both personally and professionallyspeaking. On the whole this serves them badly. At a certain point people needto be able to have an impact beyond their immediate circle, and as effectiveprofessionals, to be able to operate outside their own environment. Group-thinkis one of the great shortcomings of this insular existence. If your senior executives build their confidence around the fact thateveryone agrees with them – or at least thinks like them – they placethemselves in a dangerous situation. They may miss opportunities and be unableto function outside their bubble where it is inevitable that others will thinkdifferently. They may be able to shine within their own organisations, but canthey command respect in the outside world? Diverse environments As companies do more business outside their own cultures and communities andthe number of cross-sector partnerships increase, effective leaders must havethe ability to shine in diverse environments. This is easier said than done. How can we escape group-think and learn tovalue – even seek out – diversity? Certainly part of the answer is to develop new networks of people who thinkin a dissimilar way, who have not originated from the same schools or valuesystems. People who will challenge what you say, whose respect for you is notclouded by your position, but on your ability to influence beyond yourimmediate authority. Most people’s networks come from a specific industry or social environmentwhich provide security and support. But these days, as the spectre ofgroup-think hangs about us, we also need networks that challenge – turbulentand diverse networks. The question is, how does one develop those turbulent networks and buildrelationships with others outside one’s bubble? External leadership development programmes can provide a solution. An oftenunrecognised benefit of training programmes run outside the organisation istheir ability to provide new networks for participants, networks that can oftenserve as an excellent source of new ideas and connections. At Common Purpose,our leadership development programmes are deliberately designed to bringtogether diverse people, especially from across sectors, to offer thisadvantage. Valuable exposure Many companies run their own training programmes. While these provide a goodbase of training, they cannot possibly provide the outside exposure that canprove so valuable to people as they move through their careers. Having the opportunity to connect with very different kinds of people, whobring such different assumptions, who question different things and approachthings in very different ways, can have an enormous broadening effect, reallystretching people. At Common Purpose, we have a fundamental belief in the value of diversity.This stems from a conviction that real, creative and sustainable answers onlyemerge when diverse perspectives are considered. In a complex world, it is essential to surround oneself with sufficientdiversity to be able to understand and appreciate different angles. Leaders need to know a broad range of viewpoints so that they can make smartdecisions and avoid being blinkered by group-think. They need to invest time indeveloping new and diverse networks that will continue to refresh and challengetheir view of the world. Comments are closed.

Britons face bigger skin cancer risk

Britons face bigger skin cancer risk

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Thousands more Britons than Australians die from the malignant melanoma skincancer, despite the fact that more cases are diagnosed in Australia. Figures come from Cancer Research UK and the Government, which have launcheda joint campaign called SunSmart to make the public aware of how they cancombat what is a largely preventable form of cancer. A lack of public awareness about skin cancer and failure by patients torecognise early symptoms often leads to needless deaths. In the past five years, there have been 8,100 British deaths from malignantmelanoma compared to 4,900 in Australia. Although Australia has one-third of the population of the UK, it has morecases of malignant melanoma. Yet each year, 600 more people die from thedisease in Britain than in Australia. Dr Charlotte Proby, consultant dermatologist for Cancer Re-search UK, said:”The success of sun awareness campaigns in Australia is self evident. Theyare taught to take notice of any unusual skin growths or changes in moles, andto have them checked by a doctor. So where there is disease, it is diagnosedearly and can be successfully treated.” The campaign is distributing posters, leaflets and information cards tohealth professionals, doctors’ surgeries and schools. www.cancerresearchuk.org Britons face bigger skin cancer riskOn 1 May 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
