NEW YORK, March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LivePerson, a global leader in conversational AI, announced today that it has repurchased approximately $157.5 million in aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 0.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the "Notes"). In total, the Company paid approximately $149.7 million in cash through separate and individually negotiated transactions with certain institutional holders to retire the Notes. Following the closing of the repurchase, approximately $72.5 million of the Notes will remain outstanding. In connection with the Note repurchases, the Company expects to unwind a proportional amount of the capped call options associated with the Notes.
"Since we launched our 2022 plan to adopt a balanced approach to profitability and growth, we have reduced our cost structure by approximately $200M in annualized costs," said John Collins, CFO of LivePerson. "Consistent with this theme, repurchasing 68% of the Notes at a considerable discount preserves capital and strengthens our credit profile."
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy any of the Notes described herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation, or sale of the Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
