Conversion Right Triggered on SBA Communications’ 4.0% Convertible Senior NotesComments Off on Conversion Right Triggered on SBA Communications’ 4.0% Convertible Senior Notes
Today SBA Communications Corporation announced that SBA’s 4.0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2014 are convertible by holders of such notes. Upon issuance of the 4.0% Notes, SBA elected to settle such notes in shares of SBA’s Class A common stock and that election is still in effect.
“The conversion right for the 4.0% Notes has been triggered because SBA’s Class A common stock closing price per share exceeded
$39.49 for at least 20 trading days during the 30 consecutive trading day period ending on September 30, 2013. The 4.0% Notes will continue to be convertible until December 31, 2013, and may be convertible thereafter, if one or more of the conversion conditions specified in the Indenture, dated as of April 24, 2009, by and between SBA and U.S. Bank National Association, is satisfied during future measurement periods. Pursuant to Section 10.01 of the Indenture, a holder who elects to convert the 4.0% Notes will receive 32.9164 shares of SBA’s Class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes. Pursuant to Section 10.02 of the Indenture, these shares will be delivered 50 trading days after the holder delivers its notice of conversion, unless a settlement period market disruption event (as defined in the Indenture) occurs during this period,” according to SBA.
