September 22, 2020 at 7:01 AM EDT

FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 22, 2020-- SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: SEDG) (“SolarEdge”) today announced its intention to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $500 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) in a private offering (the “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”). In connection with the Offering, SolarEdge expects to grant the initial purchasers of the Notes a 13-day option to purchase up to an additional $75 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes on the same terms and conditions.

The final terms of the Notes, including the initial conversion price, interest rate and certain other terms, will be determined at the time of pricing of the Offering. When issued, the Notes will be senior, unsecured obligations of SolarEdge. The Notes will mature on September 15, 2025, unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date. Prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding June 15, 2025, the Notes will be convertible at the option of the holders of the Notes only upon the satisfaction of specified conditions and during certain periods. On or after June 15, 2025 until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately prior to the maturity date, the Notes will be convertible, at the option of the holders of Notes, at any time regardless of such conditions. The Notes will be convertible into cash, shares of common stock of SolarEdge or a combination thereof, with the form of consideration to be determined at SolarEdge’s election. The Notes will not be redeemable prior to their maturity date.

SolarEdge intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate purposes.

The Notes will be offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. The offer and sale of the Notes and any shares of common stock of SolarEdge issuable upon conversion of the Notes, if any, have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and unless so registered, the Notes and such shares, if any, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any offer or sale of, the Notes (or any shares of common stock of SolarEdge issuable upon conversion of the Notes) in any state or jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification thereof under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
