The Capital Markets team advised the initial purchasers on Alphatec Holdings, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATEC) Rule 144A offering of 0.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026. The $316.25 million offering includes the full exercise of the initial purchasers’ option to purchase $41.25 million in additional notes. The initial conversion price of the notes feature a premium of approximately 32.5% up from the reference price of $13.84 per share. In connection with the offering, Alphatec and certain investment bank dealers entered into capped call transactions, which mitigate equity dilution and/or offset payments due upon conversion of the notes and effectively raise the conversion price of the notes to $27.68 per share, a 100% premium over the reference price. Additionally, Alphatec used approximately $25.0 million of the net proceeds from the offering to repurchase approximately 1.806 million shares of its common stock from certain purchasers of the notes to mitigate dilution.
