9.    Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock


Effective upon the consummation of a recapitalization that the shareholders of KCI entered into in May of 2000, KCI issued Preferred and Common Stock (the “Recapitalization). Concurrent with the Recapitalization, common shareholders exchanged approximately 863,000 shares of Common Stock, through a treasury stock transaction, for Preferred Stock which was immediately sold to Kelso & Co. and affiliates (“Kelso”), an independent investment group. In addition, Kelso purchased from the Company approximately 55,000 shares of Preferred Stock. Kelso owns all of the outstanding Preferred Stock of KCI, which has a par value of $0.001. Kelso paid approximately $107.8 million (“Kelso Purchase Price”) for all Preferred Stock, which the Company recorded as the fair value of the preferred stock. The Company has 1.1 million authorized shares of Preferred Stock and the Preferred Stock earns a dividend equal to 1% of the holders’ original purchase price plus any earned dividends and is payable in kind. The dividend compounds on a semi-annual basis. The Preferred Stock is not entitled to vote for the election of directors but is entitled to designate two members of KCI’s seven member Board of Directors. In addition, the Preferred Stock has certain approval rights and is convertible into Common Stock at the holder’s option on a one for one share exchange basis.


The Preferred Stock held by Kelso & Co. has a liquidation preference equal to the Kelso Purchase Price plus any accrued dividends, and is redeemable for cash at the option of the holder after June 2, 2009.
