Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Exchange Agreement


On April 27, 2018, Teligent, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into separate, privately negotiated exchange agreements with certain holders (the “Holders”) of the Company’s 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes”). Under the terms of the exchange agreements, the Holders agreed to exchange an aggregate principal amount of approximately $75 million of 2019 Notes held by them (the “Exchange Transactions”) in exchange for an estimated $75 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 4.75% Convertible Senior Notes due May 1, 2023 (the “2023 Notes”). The 2023 Notes are being issued as part of a private placement to qualified institutional buyers and accredited investors.




On May 1, 2018, the Company completed the issuance of approximately $75 million aggregate principal amount of the 2023 Notes pursuant to the terms of the exchange agreement. In connection with the Exchange Transactions, the Company entered into an indenture, by and between the Company and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee (the “Indenture”) and issued the 2023 Notes pursuant thereto. The 2023 Notes bear interest at a rate of 4.75% per year, payable semi-annually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year, commencing November 1, 2018. The 2023 Notes will mature on May 1, 2023, unless earlier converted by holders or repurchased pursuant to the terms therein. No sinking fund is provided for the 2023 Notes. The 2023 Notes are the Company’s senior unsecured obligations and will not be guaranteed by any of the Company’s existing or future subsidiaries.


The initial conversion rate is 224.7191 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of 2023 Notes (which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $4.45 per share). The initial conversion price represents a conversion premium of approximately 25% over the closing price of the Company’s common stock of $3.56 per share on April 26, 2018, as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. The conversion rate will be subject to adjustment if certain events occur, but will not be adjusted for any accrued and unpaid interest. In addition, following the occurrence of a “make-whole fundamental change” (as defined in the Indenture), the conversion rate for a holder who elects to convert its 2023 Notes in connection with such make-whole fundamental change will increase in certain circumstances.


Holders may convert their 2023 Notes at their option at anytime prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding May 1, 2023. The Company will settle conversions through payment or delivery, as the case may be, of cash, shares of common stock or a combination thereof, at the Company’s election.


The Indenture also contains other customary terms for transactions of this type, including a right of note holders, subject to certain conditions, to require the Company to repurchase the 2023 Notes in the event of a “fundamental change” (as defined in the indenture) involving the Company.


The Indenture also provides for customary events of default which include, without limitation, the following: default in any payment of interest which continues for a period of 30 days; default in the payment of principal of any note when due and payable (whether at stated maturity, upon any required purchase or otherwise); the Company’s failure to comply with its conversion obligations under the notes which continues for a period of five calendar days; certain defaults by the Company or any of its significant subsidiaries with respect to certain indebtedness in excess of $5.0 million; and certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency, or reorganization with respect to the Company or any of its significant subsidiaries.


The foregoing description of the Indenture and the exchange agreements are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Indenture and the form of exchange agreement, attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and Exhibit 99.1, respectively.





This Current Report does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offering would be unlawful.
