Alarm.com (Nasdaq: ALRM) announced today the pricing of $435.0 million aggregate principal amount of 0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (the “notes”) in a private placement (the “offering”) to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Alarm.com has increased the size of the offering from $350.0 million to $435.0 million (or $500.0 million if the initial purchasers’ option to purchase additional notes is exercised in full as described in following paragraph).
Alarm.com has also granted the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase, within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the date on which the notes are first issued, up to an additional $65.0 million aggregate principal amount of notes from Alarm.com. The sale of the notes is expected to close on January 20, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
The notes will be general unsecured obligations of Alarm.com and will not bear regular interest, and the principal amount of the notes will not accrete. The notes will mature on January 15, 2026, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased.
Use of Proceeds: Alarm.com estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $421.3 million (or approximately $484.3 million if the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes in full) in net proceeds to Alarm.com after deducting the initial purchasers’ discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by Alarm.com. Alarm.com expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay all outstanding borrowings under, and terminate, its credit agreement and for working capital and other general corporate purposes. Alarm.com may use a portion of the proceeds from the offering for acquisitions or strategic investments in complementary businesses or technologies, although it does not currently have any plans for any such acquisitions or investments. If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, Alarm.com expects to use the net proceeds from the sale of the additional notes for other general corporate purposes as described above.
Additional Details for the 0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026
The notes will be convertible at the option of the holders in certain circumstances. Upon conversion, Alarm.com will pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of Alarm.com’s common stock or a combination of cash and shares of Alarm.com’s common stock, at its election. The initial conversion rate is 6.7939 shares of Alarm.com’s common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $147.19 per share of Alarm.com’s common stock, which represents a conversion premium of approximately 47.5% to the last reported sale price of Alarm.com’s common stock on The Nasdaq Global Select Market on January 14, 2021), and will be subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments.
Alarm.com may not redeem the notes prior to January 20, 2024. Alarm.com may redeem for cash all or any portion of the notes, at its option, on or after January 20, 2024 if the last reported sale price of Alarm.com’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 Alarm.com 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 special interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.
If Alarm.com undergoes a “fundamental change,” subject to certain conditions and limited exceptions, holders may require Alarm.com to repurchase for cash all or any portion of their notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid special interest, if any, to, but excluding, the fundamental change repurchase date. In addition, following certain corporate events that occur prior to the maturity date of the notes or if Alarm.com delivers a notice of redemption in respect of some or all of the notes, Alarm.com will, in certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate of the notes for a holder who elects to convert its notes in connection with such a corporate event or convert its notes called (or deemed called) for redemption during the related redemption period, as the case may be.
