Item 1.01     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On May 15, 2018, SEACOR Holdings Inc. (the “Company”, “we” or “us”) closed the previously announced exchange with certain beneficial owners (collectively the “Investors”) of the Company's outstanding 3.00% convertible senior notes due 2028 (the “Old Notes”) pursuant to which such Investors exchanged $117,782,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Company's Old Notes for $117,782,000 in aggregate principal amount of its 3.25% convertible senior notes due 2030 (the “New Notes”) (the “Exchange”).

 

On May 15, 2018, the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Trustee (the “Trustee”), entered into an Indenture, dated as of May 15, 2018 (the “Indenture”), among the Company and the Trustee, pursuant to which the Company issued the New Notes.

 

The New Notes are the senior, unsecured obligations of the Company and bear interest at a rate of 3.25% per annum, payable semiannually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2018. In addition to regular interest, beginning on May 15, 2025 contingent interest will accrue at a rate per annum of 0.45% of the average trading price of the New Notes over a specified period of time, if such trading price exceeds a threshold. The New Notes will mature on May 15, 2030, unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted.

 

Prior to February 15, 2030, the convertible notes are convertible only upon satisfaction of certain conditions, and thereafter, at any time prior to the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date. The conversion rate initially equals approximately 13.1920 shares of the Company’s common stock per $1,000 principal amount of New Notes (compared to 12.5892 shares for the Old Notes), which corresponds to an initial conversion price of approximately $75.80 per share of the Company’s common stock (compared to $79.43 per share for the Old Notes), representing a conversion premium of approximately 37.5% to the closing sale price of the Company’s common stock on May 8, 2018 of $55.13. The conversion rate is subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events. Upon conversion of the convertible notes, the Company will, at its election, pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of its common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of its common stock.

 

The Company may not redeem the New Notes prior to May 15, 2022. On or after May 15, 2022 and before May 15, 2025, the Company may redeem all or part of the New Notes for cash if the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock is equal to or greater than 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 before the date the Company sends the related redemption notice. On or after May 15, 2025, the Company may redeem all or part of the New Notes for cash without regard to the trading price condition described above. The redemption price for the New Notes is 100% of the principal amount of the New Notes redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest. If we undergo a fundamental change, the holders of the New Notes have the right to require us to purchase all or any portion of their notes for cash at purchase price of 100% of the principal amount of the New Notes to be purchased plus any accrued and unpaid interest. The holders of the New Notes also have the right to require us to purchase all or any portion of their notes for cash on May 15, 2025 at purchase price of 100% of the principal amount of the New Notes to be purchased plus any accrued and unpaid interest.

 

The issuance of the New Notes to the Investors in the Exchange was made in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

 

A copy of the press release announcing the closing of the Exchange and the setting of the conversion rate is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

 

 

 

The description of the Indenture contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Indenture, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant. 

 

The information provided in Item 1.01 is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.

 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

The information provided in Item 1.01 is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02. The New Notes issued in the Exchange were issued in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. In determining that the issuance of the New Notes in the Exchange qualified for the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, the Company relied on the following facts: (i) all of the Investors in the Exchange were qualified institutional buyers, (ii) the Company did not use any form of general solicitation or advertising to offer the New Notes, and (iii) the investment intent of the Investors. The maximum number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the New Notes is expected to be 2,136,435, subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of the Indenture.
