Coinbase aims to raise $1.5bn through senior notes offering
Coinbase Global, Inc (NASDAQ:COIN) today announced its intention to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $1.5 billion aggregate principal amount of its Senior Notes due 2028 and 2031.
The notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Coinbase, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Coinbase. The interest rate, redemption provisions, and other terms of each series of notes will be determined by negotiations between Coinbase and the initial purchasers.
The company explains that the capital raise represents an opportunity to bolster its balance sheet with low-cost capital. Coinbase intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include continued investments in product development, as well as potential investments in or acquisitions of other companies, products, or technologies that Coinbase may identify in the future.
The closing of the offering is subject to market and other conditions.
The notes and the related guarantee will only be offered and sold by means of a private offering memorandum to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.
