Okta announced its intention to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $1.0B aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2025 in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A
under the Securities Act of 1933.
"We believe that an overwhelming number of issuers choose to issue their guaranteed and/or collateralized securities in Rule 144A
'for life' offerings to avoid the disclosure requirements under Rule 3-10 and Rule 3-16, despite the fact that conducting a registered offering would result in a broader base of potential investors and could lower the cost of capital," wrote Maya McReynolds, senior vice president of corporate finance and chief accounting officer at Dell Technologies, Inc.
In conjunction, the company will offer all of its 20,166,319 Series B common shares in Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile SA (SQM) to Chilean investors, certain other non-US persons and to qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) within the meaning of Rule 144A
under the U.S.
The notes are CUSIPs: 251541 AG3 (Rule 144A
Notes) and D1811H AE5 (Reg S Notes); ISINs US251541AG31 (Rule 144A
Notes) and USD1811HAE56 (Reg S Notes).
