Capital Markets Team Advises Initial Purchasers and Dealers On K12’s Upsized $420 Million Convertible Senior Notes and Capped Call

The Capital Markets team advised the initial purchasers on K12, Inc.’s successful offering of 1.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2027. The deal initially launched at $300 million, but was later upsized to $420 million, including full exercise of the greenshoe. The initial conversion price of the notes featured a premium of 35% up from the reference price of $39.17. In connection with the offering, K12 and certain investment bank dealers entered into capped call transactions, which mitigates equity dilution and/or offsets payments due upon conversion of the notes and effectively raises the conversion price of the notes to approximately $86.17 per share, a 120% premium over the reference price.
