ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynex, Inc. ("Zynex") (Nasdaq: ZYXI), today announced its intent to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $50 million aggregate principal amount of its convertible senior notes due 2026 (the "Notes") in a private offering (the "Notes Offering") to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). Zynex also intends to grant the initial purchaser of the Notes an option to purchase, for settlement within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the date on which the Notes are first issued, up to an additional $7.5 million aggregate principal amount of Notes.
The Notes will be general unsecured obligations of Zynex and will accrue interest payable semiannually in arrears. Upon conversion, Zynex will pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of Zynex's common stock or a combination of cash and shares of Zynex's common stock, at its election. The interest rate, initial conversion rate and other terms of the Notes will be determined at the time of pricing of the Notes Offering.
Concurrently with the Notes Offering, Thomas Sandgaard, the Chief Executive Officer of Zynex, is offering 2,000,000 shares of Zynex's common stock in an underwritten public offering (the "Secondary Offering"). Mr. Sandgaard also intends to grant the underwriter a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 300,000 shares of Zynex's common stock. Zynex will not receive any of the proceeds from the Secondary Offering and Zynex will bear the costs associated with the Secondary Offering, except for underwriting discounts and commissions. The Notes Offering is not contingent upon the Secondary Offering and the Secondary Offering is not contingent upon the Notes Offering.
Zynex expects to use approximately $9.3 million of the net proceeds from the Notes Offering to repay outstanding borrowings under its $16.0 million term loan. Zynex intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds for working capital, and for other general corporate purposes. Zynex may also use a portion of the net proceeds for acquisitions of, or strategic investments in, complementary businesses, products, services, or technologies. However, Zynex does not have agreements or commitments with respect to any such acquisition or strategic investment at this time.
The Notes will only be offered to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. The Notes and shares of Zynex's common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes, if any, have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act, any state securities laws or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and other applicable securities laws.
