BrightSpring Health Services, Inc. (“BrightSpring” or “BrightSpring Health Services”) today announced the pricing of an initial public offering of 53,333,334 shares of its common stock at $13.00 per share and a concurrent offering of 8,000,000 of its 6.75% tangible equity units (“Units”), with a stated amount of $50.00 per Unit. Shares of BrightSpring’s common stock and the Units are expected to begin trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on January 26, 2024, under the ticker symbols “BTSG” and “BTSGU,” respectively, and the offerings are expected to close on January 30, 2024, subject to customary closing conditions. The completion of the Units offering is conditioned upon the completion of the common stock offering, but the completion of the common stock offering is not conditioned upon the completion of the Units offering.

BrightSpring has granted the underwriters in the common stock offering a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 8,000,000 shares of its common stock to cover over-allotments, if any. BrightSpring also has granted the underwriters in the Units offering an option to purchase, within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the date of the initial issuance of the Units, up to an additional 1,200,000 Units to cover over-allotments, if any.

Each Unit will consist of a prepaid stock purchase contract and a senior amortizing note due February 1, 2027. Unless earlier settled, each stock purchase contract will automatically settle on February 1, 2027 (subject to postponement in limited circumstances) for between 3.2733 and 3.8461 shares of BrightSpring’s common stock per purchase contract, subject to adjustment, based upon the applicable market value of BrightSpring’s common stock, as described in the prospectus relating to the Units offering. On each February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1, commencing on May 1, 2024, BrightSpring will pay equal quarterly cash installments of $0.8438 per amortizing note, which will constitute a payment of interest and a partial repayment of principal, and which cash payment in the aggregate per year will be equivalent to 6.75% per year with respect to each $50.00 stated amount of Units. The amortizing notes will be unsecured senior obligations of BrightSpring.

BrightSpring intends to use the net proceeds from the offerings to repay certain indebtedness outstanding under its revolving credit facility, first lien term loan credit facility and second lien term loan credit facility, and to make required payments in connection with the termination of its monitoring agreement with Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
