PURCHASE, NY, May 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teladoc Health, Inc. (NYSE: TDOC) (“Teladoc Health”) today announced its intention to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $800 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2027 (the “Notes”) in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). In connection with the offering of the Notes, Teladoc Health 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 closing date for the offering of the Notes, up to an additional $120 million aggregate principal amount of Notes on the same terms and conditions.

Teladoc Health intends to use a portion of the net proceeds of the offering to enter into privately negotiated agreements with certain holders of its 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 (the “2022 Notes”) to exchange their 2022 Notes for a combination of cash and shares of Teladoc Health common stock. Teladoc Health intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds of the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including the repayment of certain indebtedness, including the remaining 2022 Notes, or the pursuit of strategic acquisitions, should they arise.

The Notes will be unsecured, senior obligations of Teladoc Health, and interest on the Notes will be payable semiannually in arrears on June 1 and December 1 of each year, beginning on December 1, 2020. The Notes will mature on June 1, 2027, unless repurchased, redeemed or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date. Prior to December 1, 2026, the Notes will be convertible only under certain circumstances and during certain periods. On or after December 1, 2026, the Notes will be convertible at any time until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date.

Teladoc Health may not redeem the Notes prior to June 5, 2024. On or after June 5, 2024, Teladoc Health may redeem, for cash, all or part of the Notes if the last reported sale price of its common stock equals or exceeds 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which Teladoc Health provides notice of the redemption. Holders of the Notes will have the right to require Teladoc Health to repurchase all or a portion of their Notes at 100% of their principal amount, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, upon the occurrence of certain events.

Teladoc Health will settle conversions of the Notes by paying or delivering, as the case may be, cash, shares of its common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of its common stock, at its election. Final terms of the Notes, including interest rate, conversion rate and other terms, will be determined at the time of pricing.

The offering is being made to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. Neither the Notes nor any shares of Teladoc Health’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes or in exchange for the 2022 Notes have been or will be registered under the Securities Act or under any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. persons except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.??
