Rimini Street Completes $140 Million Refinancing

Share:

Transaction expected to unlock more than $95 million of cash flow
over next three years

Rimini
Street, Inc.
(NASDAQ:RMNI), a global provider of enterprise
software products and services, and the leading third-party support
provider for Oracle and SAP software products, today announced it has
completed the $140 million refinancing of its credit facility (the
"Refinancing") previously
announced
on June 18, 2018. Rimini Street stockholders approved the
transaction on July 12, 2018.

As part of the Refinancing, a syndicate of investors participated in the
private placement of $140 million of Series A convertible preferred
stock and received 2,896,556 shares of common stock. The Refinancing is
expected to reduce debt related costs that would have been incurred
under the previous credit facility by more than $95 million over the
next three years, free up cash flow for investment in growth and extend
the expected "maturity" from June 2020 under the prior credit facility
to July 2023, when the preferred equity may be redeemed by the holders
if not already converted.

The Company used substantially all of the net proceeds from the
Refinancing to repay in full the outstanding indebtedness and fees under
its credit facility and terminated the credit facility. The aggregate
cash payment to terminate the credit facility was $132.8 million and
consisted of make-whole applicable premium of $7.3 million and an
aggregate of $125.5 million for principal, accrued interest and fees.

The Series A convertible preferred stock issued in the Refinancing is
subject to an original issuance discount of 5%, has a conversion price
of $10.00 per common share (representing a 44% premium over the $6.95
closing price per common share on July 18, 2018), a cash dividend of 10%
per annum and a payment-in-kind (PIK) dividend of 3% per annum. Rimini
Street, under certain circumstances, may redeem for cash up to $80
million of the Series A convertible preferred stock within the initial
three years, subject to make-whole dividends for that period, and after
three years may redeem all of the preferred equity or force its
conversion into common stock. Under certain circumstances, the investors
may redeem their Series A preferred stock for secured promissory note
obligations. Additional terms of the financing, including when the
promissory notes may replace the preferred stock, can be found in the
Company's SEC filings, including the Current Report on Form 8-K filed
today.

"Rimini Street has been providing value-driven, innovative support
solutions and exceptional service that meet the support service needs of
enterprise software licensees worldwide for over 13 years," said Seth
A. Ravin
, Rimini Street CEO. "I am pleased that our investors
overwhelmingly supported this $140 million Series A convertible
preferred equity transaction, and the transaction was also approved
unanimously by the disinterested directors of the Board. The Refinancing
achieves one of our stated 2018 financial priorities by replacing our
current credit facility with an equity instrument that provides the
Company a significantly lower cost of capital, and more operational
flexibility to invest for growth in new products, services and
geographic expansion."
