Evolent Health, Inc. Announces Pricing of $150.0 Million of Convertible Senior Notes Due 2025

Oct 17, 2018

WASHINGTON, Oct. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolent Health, Inc. (NYSE: EVH), a company providing an integrated value-based care platform to the nation's leading health systems and physician organizations ("Evolent Health"), today announced the pricing of $150.0 million aggregate principal amount of 1.50% convertible senior notes due 2025.  The size of the offering was increased from the previously announced $125.0 million aggregate principal amount of notes.  The notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").   Evolent Health has also granted the initial purchasers in the offering a 30 day option to purchase up to an additional $22.5 million aggregate principal amount of notes. 

Interest on the notes is payable semiannually in arrears on April 15 and October 15 of each year, beginning on April 15, 2019, at a rate equal to 1.50% per annum.  The notes will mature on October 15, 2025 unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.

The notes are convertible into cash, shares of Evolent Health's Class A common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of Evolent Health's Class A common stock, at Evolent Health's election based on an initial conversion rate of 29.9135 shares of Class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $33.43 per share of Class A common stock.  The initial conversion price represents a premium of approximately 32.50% over the closing price of the Class A common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on October 17, 2018. 

Holders of the notes may require Evolent Health to repurchase their notes upon the occurrence of a fundamental change at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes being repurchased, plus any accrued and unpaid interest. Evolent Health may not redeem the notes prior to October 20, 2022.  Evolent Health may redeem for cash all or any portion of the notes, at its option, on or after October 20, 2022, if the last reported sale price of Evolent Health's Class A 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 Evolent Health provides notice of redemption, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. 

Evolent Health intends to loan the net proceeds from this offering to the subsidiary through which its operations are conducted, Evolent Health LLC.  Evolent Health LLC is expected to use such net proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes. 

Consummation of the sale of the notes is subject to customary closing conditions, and there can be no assurance that the offering of the notes will be consummated.  Settlement is expected to occur on October 22, 2018.

The notes and any Class A common stock of Evolent Health issuable upon conversion of the notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described herein, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities law of any such jurisdiction.
