NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD) (“Brookdale” or the “Company”) announced today that it has priced its previously announced public offering of 2.5 million of its 7.00% tangible equity units at $50.00 per unit (equal to the stated amount per unit). The transaction is a public offering made by means of a prospectus supplement under Brookdale’s effective shelf registration statement. Brookdale’s common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “BKD,” and Brookdale intends to apply to list the tangible equity units on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “BKDT.” Brookdale anticipates that the offering will close on November 21, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions.
Brookdale has granted the underwriters of the offering a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 375,000 tangible equity units.
Each tangible equity unit is comprised of a prepaid stock purchase contract and a senior amortizing note due November 15, 2025, each issued by Brookdale. Unless settled earlier, each purchase contract will automatically settle on November 15, 2025 (subject to postponement in certain limited circumstances), and Brookdale will deliver at least 12.9341, but no more than 15.1976, shares of its common stock per purchase contract, subject to adjustment, based upon the applicable market value of the common stock, as described in the final prospectus supplement relating to the tangible equity units offering. Each amortizing note will have an initial principal amount of $8.8996, will bear interest at a rate of 10.25% per annum and will have a final installment payment date of November 15, 2025. On each of February 15, May 15, August 15 and November 15, commencing on February 15, 2023, Brookdale will pay quarterly cash installments of $0.8750 per amortizing note (except for the February 15, 2023 installment payment, which will be $0.8166 per amortizing note), which will constitute a payment of interest and a partial repayment of principal, and which cash payment in the aggregate per year will be equivalent to 7.00% per year with respect to each $50.00 stated amount of tangible equity units. The amortizing notes will be the direct, unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of Brookdale.
Brookdale expects the net proceeds from the offering to be approximately $120.3 million (or up to $138.5 million if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option) after deducting the underwriting discounts and estimated offering expenses. Brookdale expects to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes.
BofA Securities, Inc. and Barclays Capital Inc. are acting as joint book-running managers for the tangible equity unit offering. The offering of tangible equity units (including the component stock purchase contracts and senior amortizing notes) is being made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
