REPAY Announces Convertible Notes Offering

BY Business Wire | CORPORATE | 01/12/21 04:05 PM EST

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Repay Holdings Corporation (RPAY) (?REPAY? or the ?Company?) announced today its intention to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $350.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2026 (the ?Notes?) in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the ?Securities Act?), to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. REPAY also expects to grant the initial purchasers of the Notes an option to purchase, for settlement within a period of 13 days from, and including, the date the Notes are first issued, up to an additional $52.5 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes.

The Notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of REPAY, will accrue interest payable semi-annually in arrears and will mature on February 1, 2026, unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted. Before November 3, 2025 noteholders will have the right to convert their Notes in certain circumstances and during specified periods. REPAY will settle conversions by paying or delivering, as applicable, cash, shares of its Class A common stock or a combination of cash and shares of its Class A common stock, at REPAY?s election. The Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, for cash at REPAY?s option at any time, and from time to time, on or after February 5, 2024 and on or before the 40th scheduled trading day immediately before the maturity date, if the last reported sale price per share of REPAY?s Class A common stock exceeds 130% of the conversion price for a specified period of time. The redemption price will be equal to the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. The final terms of the Notes, including the interest rate, initial conversion rate and certain other terms of the Notes, will be determined at the pricing of the offering.

REPAY intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with the net proceeds from a concurrent public offering of its Class A common stock, for the repayment of the term loans issued under its existing credit agreement and other general corporate purposes, which may include, without limitation, repurchase, redemption or retirement of securities, including interests in Hawk Parent Holdings LLC, future acquisitions, satisfaction of earnout obligations from prior acquisitions, the repayment of outstanding indebtedness and working capital. In connection with the repayment of the term loans, REPAY expects to seek to increase the amount of availability under its revolving credit facility.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of, or any solicitation of an offer to buy, the Notes or any shares of REPAY?s Class A common stock in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

There can be no assurances that the offering of the Notes will be completed as described herein or at all.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
