As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 19, 2013 (the “November 19 Form 8-K”), HealthSouth Corporation (the “Company”) previously issued $320 million in aggregate principal amount of 2.00% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due 2043 (the “Convertible Notes”) to holders of, and in exchange for, 257,110 shares of the Company’s 6.50% Series A Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock, par value $0.10 per share and liquidation preference $1,000 per share. The Convertible Notes are governed by the Indenture (the “Indenture”), dated November 18, 2013, by and between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee, paying agent, conversion agent and registrar.
On May 26, 2017, the Company provided the notice of the redemption of all of the outstanding principal amount of the Convertible Notes, which will occur on June 26, 2017 (the “Redemption Date”). Pursuant to the Indenture, the holders of the Convertible Notes may elect to convert those notes to shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), prior to the Redemption Date. The Company may elect to settle any conversion, in whole or in part, by delivering cash in lieu of shares. In connection with any conversion, the Company will pay a make-whole premium to the electing holder by increasing the conversion rate on such Convertible Notes.
As of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, conversion elections delivered by noteholders to the Company have resulted, or are expected to result, in the following issuances of shares of Common Stock:
The shares of Common Stock delivered in connection with these conversions have been issued in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities law of any such state or jurisdiction. The Convertible Notes and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Convertible Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
The foregoing descriptions of the Convertible Notes and the Indenture do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Indenture. A copy of the Indenture, including the form of Global Note for the Convertible Notes, was attached as Exhibit 4.1 to the November 19 Form 8-K.
