The Capital Markets team advised the initial purchasers on Arch Resources, Inc.’s Rule 144A offering of 5.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025. The offering launched at $125 million, but was upsized to $155.25 million, plus the full exercise of the initial purchasers’ option to purchase additional notes. The initial conversion price of the notes feature a premium of 25% up from the reference price of approximately $29.86 per share. In connection with the offering, Arch Resources 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 $52.26 per share, a 75% premium over the reference price.
