The Capital Markets team advised the initial purchasers on PagerDuty, Inc.’s Rule 144A offering of 1.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028. The $402.5 million offering included the full exercise of the initial purchasers’ option to purchase $52.5 million in additional notes. The initial conversion price of the notes represents a premium of approximately 27.5% to the last reported sale price of PagerDuty’s common stock on the pricing date (the “reference price”). In connection with the offering, PagerDuty and certain investment bank dealers entered into capped call transactions, which mitigate equity dilution and/or offset payments due upon conversion of the notes, to synthetically increase the conversion price to 100% above the reference price. Additionally, PagerDuty used a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to repurchase $230 million of its 1.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 and approximately $50 million of the net proceeds from the offering to repurchase shares of PagerDuty’s common stock.
