Goodwin Procter LLP advised the initial purchasers on the deal.
Rapid7, Inc. (Nasdaq: RPD) announced the Rule 144A offering of $525 million principal amount of its 0.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2027 (the “Notes”). The initial conversion price of the Notes features a premium of approximately 30% up from the reference price of $79.52 per share. In connection with the offering, Rapid7 and certain investment bank dealers entered into capped call transactions, which mitigate equity dilution and/or offset payments due upon conversion of the Notes and effectively raise the conversion price of the Notes to approximately $159.04 per share, a 100% premium over the reference price. Additionally, Goodwin advised the exchange agent on the repurchase of approximately $182.6 million aggregate principal amount of Rapid7’s outstanding 1.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 in a privately negotiated transaction executed concurrently with the pricing of the Notes.
