DocuSign Announces Closing of $690.0 Million of 0% Convertible Senior Notes Due 2024, including Full Exercise of Initial Purchasers’ $90.0 Million Option to Purchase Additional Notes

Published

on

DocuSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU) today announced that it has closed its offering of 0% convertible senior notes due 2024 (the “notes”) for gross proceeds of $690.0 million, including the full exercise of the $90.0 million option to purchase additional notes granted by DocuSign to the initial purchasers. The notes were sold only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”).

The notes are general unsecured, senior obligations of DocuSign that do not bear regular interest, and the principal amount of the notes will not accrete. The notes mature on January 15, 2024, unless repurchased or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date. Prior to October 15, 2023, the notes are convertible at the option of holders only upon satisfaction of certain conditions and during certain periods, and thereafter, at any time until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date. Upon conversion, the notes may be settled in shares of DocuSign common stock, cash or a combination of cash and shares of DocuSign common stock, at the election of DocuSign.

The notes have an initial conversion rate of 2.3796 shares of DocuSign common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes (which is subject to adjustment in certain circumstances). This is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $420.24 per share. The initial conversion price represents a premium of approximately 60% to the $262.65 per share closing price of DocuSign common stock on The Nasdaq Global Select Market on January 12, 2021.

DocuSign estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $677.3 million, after deducting the initial purchasers’ discount and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by DocuSign. DocuSign used approximately $31.4 million of the net proceeds from the offering of the notes to pay the cost of the capped call transactions described below. In addition, DocuSign used approximately $460.0 million of the net proceeds from the offering, together with approximately 4.7 million shares of DocuSign common stock, to repurchase $460.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 0.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023. DocuSign intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

In connection with the pricing of the notes and the full exercise of the option by the initial purchasers to purchase additional notes, DocuSign has entered into privately negotiated capped call transactions with one or more of the initial purchasers of the notes or their respective affiliates and other financial institutions (the “capped call counterparties”). The capped call transactions cover, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, the number of shares of DocuSign common stock underlying the notes sold in the offering. The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce or offset potential dilution to holders of DocuSign common stock upon conversion of the notes and/or offset any cash payments that DocuSign could be required to make in excess of the principal amount of any converted notes, with such reduction and/or offset subject to a cap.

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities (including the shares of DocuSign common stock, if any, into which the notes are convertible) and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. Offers of the notes are being made only by means of a private offering memorandum.

The notes and any shares of DocuSign common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been registered under the Act, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

Use of forward-looking statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” including, among other things, the potential effects of capped call transactions and statements relating to the expected use of proceeds from the offering. These forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

The foregoing list of risks and uncertainties is illustrative, but is not exhaustive.  For information about other potential factors that could affect DocuSign’s business and financial results, please review the “Risk Factors” described in DocuSign’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 31, 2020 and DocuSign’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended October 31, 2020 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and in DocuSign’s other filings with the SEC.  DocuSign undertakes no obligation, and does not intend, to update these forward-looking statements after the date of this release, except as required by law.

This Week’s Recap

Published

on

The market and the economy continue to open, which is probably a result of bottled-up demand for many products and services affected by the pandemic. Maybe the inflation or rising bond yields will trigger the selloff on the market at some moment, but the current Fed’s transitory inflation message has been accepted by many investors. Also, the best way to deal with inflation is to stay with your investments and keep your faith in the market. So, despite the jump of May’s consumer-price index, that did not affect the investors who adopted a different mindset, so all three major averages finished in a positive zone.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average managed to recover from one of the steeper declines, thanks to gains from companies like IBM (NYSE: IBM), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), and Salesforce (NYSE: CRM). The Nasdaq Composite Index has also risen 49.09 points to 14,069.42. The tech-heavy index continued with the positive run, led by DocuSign (NASDAQ: DOCU), Zoom Video (NASDAQ: ZM), and CrowdStrike (NASDAQ: CRWD).

Tuesday brought us an earnings report from Oracle

Although it was a slim week for the earnings reports, Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) announced its last quarter results, as well as plans and guidance. The results are better than expected, as the achieved revenues were $11.23 billion (compared to the expected $11.04 billion) and the achieved adjusted earnings of $1.54 per share (compared to the expected $1.31). On the other hand, the company revealed its quarterly revenue guidance, which is lower than expected due to the plans to increase investments to support its cloud strategy and keep migrating existing on-premises customers to the cloud. This all led to a share fall of 5%, as many investors are skeptical if Oracle can successfully compete with major “cloud” players like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Salesforce, or Workday (NASDAQ: WDAY).

Adobe reported impressive results on Thursday

The Wall Street analysts recognized the work-from-home trend and this second digitization era as the main reasons for Adobe’s (NASDAQ: ADBE) sustained growth and therefore a monster quarter. And they were right. The company reported revenues of $3.84 billion, which is an increase of 23% compared year to year. That is also above the Wall Street estimate of $3.73 billion. The digital media business revenues, consisting of Creative Cloud and Document Cloud, grew by 25% compared to the previous year. The adjusted earnings per share were $3.03, which is higher than the estimated $2.81. For the following quarter, the company expects revenues of $3.88 billion and adjusted earnings per share of $3.00.

Conclusion

All these factors taken together, proven by positive index movements and earnings results better than anticipated, support the fact that the economic recovery is firmly underway, and those are very encouraging news.

The week may be starting slowly but do not let that mislead you

Published

on

The celebration of Memorial Day in the U.S. caused the slower start, but the rest of the week will bring us plenty of news, updates, and earnings reports from companies like Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ: ZM), Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE), Advanced Auto Parts (NYSE: AAP) and Slack Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: WORK). This week will also bring us news from the EV and the IPO worlds, as well as the 2021 Bitcoin conference, one of the biggest cryptocurrency events this year. Before we move to the day-to-day highlights, if you are a small business owner, do not miss today’s deadline to apply for the latest round of the Paycheck Protection Program funding.

Tuesday

This week’s earnings reports will be led by Kirkland’s Inc (NASDAQ: KIRK), and that is due before the market opens. It will be followed by HP’s and Zoom’s earnings reports, after the bell. SoFi Technologies (NYSE: SOFI) is a fintech startup IPO joining the trading world after its SPAC merger on Friday.

 

Wednesday

Before the market opens on Wednesday, we are expecting the earnings reports from Advance Auto Parts and Lands’ End Inc (NASDAQ: LE). The reports will keep coming after the bell as well, so we are keen to see how NetApp Inc (NASDAQ: NTAP), Endeavor Group Holdings (NYSE: EDR), Splunk Inc (NASDAQ: SPLK), and PVH Corp (NYSE: PVH) did in the previous period. Wednesday is also the day when we are expecting the Beige Book, which will give us the latest analysis of the economic conditions in the U.S. as the COVID-19 restrictions reduce.

Thursday

Thursday is expected to be the busiest of the week, when we expect earnings reports from Express Inc (NYSE: EXPR), Asana Inc (NYSE: ASAN), Duluth Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: DLTH), Broadcom Inc (NASDAQ: AVGO), The Toro Company (NYSE: TTC), The Cooper Companies (NYSE: COO), Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAIC), Lululemon Athletica (NASDAQ: LULU), as well as Slack Technologies.

Thursday is a big day for NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) also. After reporting the record profits and earnings, highly affected by the company’s revenues from graphic cards for crypto mining, the shareholders will vote on a 4-for-1 stock split. That will increase the number of authorized shares of common stock, and if approved, each shareholder will receive an additional dividend of three additional shares.

Thursday will be also interesting in the automotive world. Kia will start taking reservations for its new EV6 crossover, while Nio Inc (NYSE: NIO), the Chinese automaker, will hold a general meeting so it can increase the diversity of its board.

This day will also be dominated by cryptocurrencies, as the 2021 Bitcoin conference, taking place in Miami, will kick-off.

Friday

The week’s end is reserved for the earnings report from Hooker Furniture Corporation (NASDAQ: HOFT), and that is expected before the opening bell. During the rest of Friday, we will focus on the latest unemployment rates and data.
