IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Endologix, Inc. (Nasdaq:ELGX) (“Endologix” or the “Company”) announced today that it intends to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $150 million aggregate principal amount of its convertible senior notes due 2020 (the “Notes”) in an underwritten offering registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Endologix also expects to grant the underwriter of the Notes an option to purchase up to an additional $22.5 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes solely to cover overallotments, if any. Piper Jaffray & Co. is acting as the sole underwriter for the offering.
The Notes are expected to pay interest semiannually and will be convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”), cash or a combination of cash and shares of the Company’s Common Stock, at the Company’s election, based on a conversion rate to be determined at the pricing of the Notes. The Notes will mature on November 1, 2020, unless repurchased, redeemed or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date. Prior to August 1, 2020, the Notes will be convertible only upon the occurrence of certain events and during certain periods, and thereafter, at any time until the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date. On or after November 1, 2018, the Company may from time to time redeem for cash all or part of the Notes in certain circumstances.
The Company expects to use approximately $56 million of the net proceeds from the offering of Notes to repay indebtedness of TriVascular Technologies, Inc. (“TriVascular”) contemporaneously with the consummation of the Company’s previously announced anticipated acquisition of TriVascular (the “Acquisition”). To the extent the holders of convertible indebtedness of TriVascular do not convert their indebtedness into TriVascular common stock prior to or in connection with the consummation of the Acquisition, the Company intends to use an additional $10 million of the net proceeds to repurchase such convertible indebtedness. The Company expects to use the remainder of the net proceeds, or, if the Acquisition does not close, all of the net proceeds to finance the commercialization of its products, for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
Endologix intends to offer and sell the Notes pursuant to a shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 26, 2015 which became effective upon filing. A prospectus supplement describing the terms of the offering will be filed with the SEC and will form a part of the effective registration statement.
