McDermott International, Inc. (MDR) today announced that it intends, subject to market and other conditions, to offer 10,000,000 tangible equity units (the “Units”), each with a stated value of $25.00, in an underwritten public offering. In addition, McDermott intends to grant the underwriter an option to purchase up to an additional 1,500,000 Units. Each Unit will consist of a prepaid stock purchase contract and an amortizing note. Unless earlier settled, each stock purchase contract will automatically settle on April 1, 2017 for shares of McDermott’s common stock (subject to postponement in limited circumstances). The amortizing notes will pay proportionally equal quarterly installments that will constitute a payment of interest and a partial repayment of principal. The amortizing notes will have a final installment payment date of April 1, 2017 and will be unsecured senior obligations of McDermott. All of the securities to be offered will be issued under McDermott’s currently effective shelf registration statement. McDermott's common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “MDR.”
McDermott intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with proceeds expected to be received from other previously announced financing transactions relating to the refinancing of its outstanding credit agreement, for general corporate purposes, including the funding of working capital requirements and capital expenditures.
