DexCom Announces Proposed Offering of $750 Million of Convertible Senior Notes

November 26, 2018

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 26, 2018--DexCom, Inc. (Nasdaq: DXCM) (“DexCom”) announced today that it intends to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $750 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the “notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). DexCom also intends to grant the initial purchasers of the notes a 13-day option to purchase up to an additional $100 million aggregate principal amount of notes.

The notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of DexCom, and interest will be payable semi-annually in arrears. The notes will mature on December 1, 2023, unless earlier converted, repurchased or redeemed in accordance with the terms of the notes. Prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the business day immediately preceding September 1, 2023, the notes will be convertible at the option of holders of the notes only upon satisfaction of certain conditions and during certain periods, and thereafter, at any time until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date. Upon conversion, the notes may be settled in shares of DexCom’s common stock, cash or a combination of cash and shares of the common stock, at the election of DexCom. Prior to December 1, 2021, the notes will not be redeemable. On or after December 1, 2021, and prior to September 1, 2023, DexCom may redeem for cash all or part of the notes, at its option, if the last reported sale price of DexCom’s common stock has been at least 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 DexCom provides notice of redemption.

Holders of the notes will have the right to require DexCom to repurchase for cash all or a portion of their notes at 100% of their principal amount, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, upon the occurrence of a fundamental change (as defined in the indenture relating to the notes). DexCom will also be required to increase the conversion rate for holders who convert their notes in connection with certain fundamental changes occurring prior to the maturity date or following delivery by DexCom of a notice of redemption.

The interest rate, initial conversion rate, offering price and other terms are to be determined upon pricing of the notes.

DexCom expects to use a portion of the net proceeds to pay the cost of the convertible note hedge transactions described below (after such cost is partially offset by the proceeds of the warrant transactions described below) to manage potential dilution and to use up to $100 million of the net proceeds to repurchase shares of its common stock concurrently with the offering. DexCom expects to repurchase such shares from purchasers of the notes in the offering at a purchase price per share equal to the closing price per share of its common stock on the date of the pricing of the offering. DexCom intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds from the offering for capital expenditures, working capital and general corporate purposes, which may include in-licensing or acquisitions of, or investments in, other businesses, products or technologies, or additional share repurchases. However, DexCom has no commitments or specific plans with respect to any such acquisitions, investments or repurchases at this time.

In connection with the offering of the notes, DexCom expects to enter into convertible note hedge transactions with one or more of the initial purchasers of the notes or their respective affiliates (the “hedge counterparties”), and expects to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to pay for the convertible note hedge transactions. The convertible note hedge transactions are expected generally to reduce the potential dilution upon any conversion of the notes and/or offset any cash payments DexCom is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted notes in the event that the market price per share of DexCom common stock, as measured under the terms of the convertible note hedge transactions, is greater than the strike price of the convertible note hedge transactions. DexCom also expects to enter into separate warrant transactions with the hedge counterparties, and to use the proceeds of those warrant transactions to partially offset the cost of the convertible note hedge transactions.

The warrant transactions could separately have a dilutive effect if the market price per share of DexCom common stock, as measured under the terms of the warrant transactions, exceeds the strike price of the warrants. If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, DexCom may enter into additional convertible note hedge and warrant transactions.

In connection with establishing their initial hedge of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions, the hedge counterparties have advised DexCom that they or their affiliates expect to enter into various derivative transactions with respect to DexCom common stock and/or purchase DexCom common stock concurrently with or shortly after the pricing of the notes. These activities could have the effect of increasing (or reducing the size of any decrease in) the price of DexCom common stock or the notes at that time. In addition, the hedge counterparties and/or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to DexCom common stock and/or purchasing or selling DexCom common stock in secondary market transactions following the pricing of the notes and prior to the maturity of the notes (and are likely to do so during any observation period related to a conversion of notes or following any repurchase of notes by DexCom on any fundamental change repurchase date or otherwise). This activity could also cause or avoid an increase or a decrease in the market price of DexCom common stock or the notes, which could affect the ability of holders of the notes to convert their notes and, to the extent the activity occurs during any observation period related to a conversion of notes, it could affect the amount and value of the consideration that holders of notes will receive upon conversion of the notes.

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities (including the shares of DexCom’s common stock, if any, into which the notes are convertible) and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. Any offers of the notes will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum.

The notes will be offered to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. The notes and any shares of DexCom’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been and are not expected to be registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
