Delivery Hero SE successfully places 1.000% EUR 750 million convertible bonds due 2026 and 2.125% EUR 500 million convertible bonds due 2029.
Berlin, September 2, 2021 - Delivery Hero SE ("Delivery Hero" or the "Company", ISIN: DE000A2E4K43, Frankfurt Stock Exchange: DHER) placed two tranches ("Tranche A" and "Tranche B") of senior, unsecured convertible bonds maturing in April 2026 (Tranche A) and March 2029 (Tranche B) in a principal amount of EUR 750 million (Tranche A) and EUR 500 million (Tranche B), divided into 12,500 bonds in a nominal amount of EUR 100,000 each (the "Convertible Bonds"). The Convertible Bonds are initially convertible into approximately 6,826,125 new or existing ordinary no-par value registered shares of Delivery Hero.
The Convertible Bonds will be issued at 100% of their nominal value and with a semi-annually payable coupon of 1.000% p.a. (Tranche A) and 2.125% p.a. (Tranche B). The initial conversion price amounts to EUR 183.12 (Tranche A) and EUR 183.12 (Tranche B), representing a conversion premium of 40.0% (Tranche A) and 40.0% (Tranche B) above the reference price of EUR 130.80 (placement price per share under the simultaneous placement of existing shares of the Company as described below). The Convertible Bonds have been placed solely to institutional investors in certain jurisdictions via a private placement. Shareholders' subscription rights were excluded.
The Convertible Bonds are expected to be issued on or around September 10, 2021 and to be admitted to trading on the non-regulated open market segment (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange shortly thereafter.
Delivery Hero is entitled to redeem the Convertible Bonds at any time (i) on or after September 30, 2024 (Tranche A) and September 30, 2025 (Tranche B) if the company's share price amounts to at least 130% (Tranche A) or 150% (Tranche B) of the prevailing conversion price over a certain period or (ii) if 15% or less of the aggregate principal amount of the relevant tranche of the Convertible Bonds remain outstanding.
In addition, a simultaneous placement of existing shares of the Company has been conducted on behalf of the Convertible Bond investors who wish to sell such shares in short sales to hedge the market risk of an investment in the Convertible Bonds at a placement price determined by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process. The Company will not receive any proceeds from the offering of existing shares.
The Company receives gross proceeds amounting to EUR 1,250 million from the Convertible Bonds. The proceeds are intended to be used for general corporate purposes and to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities that may arise. As part of the transactions, the Company has agreed to a lock-up period of 90 days, subject to customary exceptions.
