Jamf Holding Corp. Announces Pricing of $325.0 Million of Convertible Senior Notes
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jamf Holding Corp. (“Jamf,” “we,” “us” or “our”) (NASDAQ: JAMF), the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, today announced the pricing of $325.0 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (the “notes”) in a private offering (the “offering”) to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Jamf also granted the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase, within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the first date on which the notes are issued, up to an additional $48.75 million aggregate principal amount of notes. The sale of the notes to the initial purchasers is expected to settle on September 17, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to result in approximately $314.2 million in net proceeds to Jamf after deducting the initial purchasers’ discount and estimated offering expenses payable by Jamf (assuming no exercise of the initial purchasers’ option to purchase additional notes).
The notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of Jamf. The notes will bear interest at a rate of 0.125% per year. Interest will be payable semi-annually in arrears on March 1 and September 1 of each year, beginning on March 1, 2022. The notes will mature on September 1, 2026, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased. Jamf may not redeem the notes prior to September 6, 2024. Jamf may redeem for cash all or any portion of the notes, at its option, on or after September 6, 2024, if the last reported sale price of Jamf’s common stock (the “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 Jamf provides notice of redemption at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, plus any accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. No sinking fund is provided for the notes, which means that Jamf is not required to redeem or retire the notes periodically.
Subject to certain conditions, holders of the notes will have the right to require Jamf to repurchase all or a portion of their notes upon the occurrence of a fundamental change (as defined in the indenture that will govern the notes) at a purchase price of 100% of their principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest. In connection with certain corporate events or if Jamf calls any notes for redemption, Jamf will, under certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate for noteholders who elect to convert their notes in connection with any such corporate event or convert their notes called for redemption.
The notes will be convertible at an initial conversion rate of 20.0024 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $49.99 per share, which represents a conversion premium of approximately 40% to the last reported sale price of $35.71 per share of common stock on NASDAQ on September 14, 2021).
Prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding March 1, 2026, the notes will be convertible at the option of the noteholders only upon the satisfaction of specified conditions and during certain periods. On or after March 1, 2026 until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, the notes will be convertible at the option of the noteholders at any time regardless of these conditions. Conversions of the notes will be settled in cash, shares of common stock, or a combination thereof, at Jamf’s election.
In connection with the pricing of the notes, Jamf entered into privately negotiated capped call transactions with certain of the initial purchasers or their respective affiliates and other financial institutions (the “option counterparties”). The capped call transactions will cover, subject to anti-dilution adjustments, the number of shares of common stock initially underlying the notes sold in the offering. The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce potential dilution to the common stock upon any conversion of notes and/or offset any cash payments Jamf is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted notes, as the case may be, with such reduction and/or offset subject to a cap. The cap price of the capped call transactions will initially be $71.42 per share, which represents a premium of 100% over the last reported sale price of Jamf’s common stock of $35.71 per share on NASDAQ on September 14, 2021, and is subject to certain adjustments under the terms of the capped call transactions.
Jamf has been advised that, in connection with establishing their initial hedges of the capped call transactions, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates expect to purchase shares of Jamf’s common stock and/or enter into various derivative ransactions with respect to the common stock concurrently with or shortly after the pricing of the notes. This activity could increase (or reduce the size of any decrease in) the market price of the common stock or the notes at that time. In addition, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to the common stock and/or purchasing or selling the common stock or other securities of Jamf in secondary market transactions from time to time prior to the maturity of the notes (and are likely to do so on each exercise date for the capped call transactions or following any termination of any portion of the capped call transactions in connection with any repurchase, redemption or early conversion of the notes). This activity could also cause a decrease or avoid an increase in the market price of the common stock or the notes, which could affect the ability of noteholders to convert the notes and, to the extent the activity occurs following a conversion or during any observation period related to a conversion of notes, it could affect the amount and value of the consideration that noteholders will receive upon conversion of the notes.
Jamf intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to (i) repay the term loan facility incurred in connection with Jamf’s acquisition of Wandera and pay any associated prepayment penalties and accrued and unpaid interest to the date of repayment and (ii) pay the cost of the capped call transactions described above. If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, Jamf expects to use a portion of the net proceeds from the sale of such additional notes to enter into additional capped call transactions with the option counterparties. Jamf intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include working capital, capital expenditures, and potential acquisitions and strategic transactions. However, it has not designated any specific uses for such remainder of the net proceeds and has no current agreements with respect to any strategic transactions.
The notes are being offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. Neither the notes nor the shares of common stock potentially issuable upon conversion of the notes, if any, have been, or will be, registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
