Cal Dive Announces Closing Of 5.00% Convertible Senior Notes Offering

Stocks in this article: DVR

Cal Dive International, Inc. (NYSE: DVR) (“Cal Dive”) announced today the closing of its previously announced private offering of its 5.00% convertible senior notes due 2017 (the “notes”). Cal Dive issued $86.25 million aggregate principal amount of the notes (which includes $11.25 million aggregate principal amount of notes issued pursuant to the initial purchasers’ exercise in full of their over-allotment option on July 16, 2012). The offering and sale of the notes was made through a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

The net proceeds from the offering were approximately $83.0 million after deducting the initial purchasers’ discounts and commissions and estimated transaction expenses. Cal Dive will use the net proceeds from the notes offering to repay a portion of the term loan under its senior secured credit facility. Following the repayment, the term loan balance will be approximately $48.8 million. Additionally, the notes will be excluded from Cal Dive’s leverage ratio covenant under its senior secured credit agreement, as amended, going forward.

The notes are convertible under certain conditions, and subject to certain limitations, into cash, shares of Cal Dive common stock or a combination thereof, at Cal Dive’s election. The initial conversion rate is 445.6328 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $2.24 per share, representing a conversion premium of approximately 20% above the NYSE closing sale price for Cal Dive common stock of $1.87 per share on July 12, 2012. Prior to April 15, 2017, the notes are only convertible in certain circumstances or upon the occurrence of certain events; thereafter, until the business day prior to the maturity date, the notes will be convertible at any time.

The notes are general unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of Cal Dive, and are guaranteed by certain of Cal Dive’s wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries. Interest on the notes is payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing January 15, 2013, at a rate of 5.00% per annum. The notes will mature on July 15, 2017, unless earlier purchased by Cal Dive or converted. Upon the occurrence of certain fundamental changes, holders of the notes will have the right to require Cal Dive to purchase all or a portion of their notes for cash at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of such notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
