MongoDB Announces Proposed Private Offering of $200 Million of Convertible Senior Notes


NEW YORK, June 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MongoDB, Inc. ("MongoDB") (Nasdaq: MDB), the leading modern, general purpose database platform, today announced that it intends to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $200 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2024 in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). MongoDB also intends to grant the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase up to an additional $30 million principal amount of notes. e're proud to announce that Twiggle has been selected as a Cool Vendor 2018 in Digital Commerce by Gartner.

The notes will be general unsecured obligations of MongoDB and will accrue interest payable semiannually in arrears. The notes will be convertible into cash, shares of MongoDB's Class A common stock or a combination of cash and shares of MongoDB's Class A common stock, at MongoDB's election. The interest rate, initial conversion rate, repurchase or redemption rights and other terms of the notes will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering.

MongoDB intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to pay the cost of the capped call transactions described below. MongoDB intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes. 

In connection with the pricing of the notes, MongoDB expects to enter into capped call transactions with one or more of the initial purchasers and/or their respective affiliates and/or other financial institutions (the "option counterparties"). The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce potential dilution to MongoDB's Class A common stock upon any conversion of notes, with such reduction subject to a cap. If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, MongoDB expects to enter into additional capped call transactions with the option counterparties.

MongoDB expects that, in connection with establishing their initial hedges of the capped call transactions, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates may enter into various derivative transactions with respect to MongoDB's Class A common stock and/or purchase shares of MongoDB's Class A common stock concurrently with or shortly after the pricing of the notes. This activity could increase (or reduce the size of any decrease in) the market price of MongoDB's Class A common stock or the notes at that time.

In addition, MongoDB expects that the option counterparties or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to MongoDB's Class A common stock and/or purchasing or selling MongoDB's Class A common stock or other securities of MongoDB in secondary market transactions following the pricing of the notes and prior to the maturity of the notes (and are likely to do so on each exercise date for the capped call transactions). This activity could also cause or avoid an increase or a decrease in the market price of MongoDB's Class A common stock or the notes, and to the extent the activity occurs during any observation period related to a conversion of notes, this could affect the number of shares and value of the consideration that a noteholder will receive upon conversion of its notes.

Neither the notes, nor any shares of MongoDB's Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes, have been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, 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.

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
