In addition, the Company has closed separate, privately negotiated, agreements with certain investors for the sale (the “Sale”) of $42.4 million in aggregate principal amount of the new 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Purchased Notes” at 102.25% of par, plus accrued interest from May 15, 2020, and together with the Exchange Notes, the “New Notes”) in a private offering.

Following closing of the Exchange Offer and the Sale, there are $69.7 million in the aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes outstanding and $200.0 million in the aggregate principal amount of the 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 outstanding.

The New Notes will mature on May 15, 2025, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms.

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the New Notes, nor shall there be any sale of the New Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
