Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 20, 2020, Tilray, Inc. (“Tilray”) entered into privately negotiated exchange agreements (the “Exchange Agreements”) with certain holders of Tilray’s 5.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”). Under the terms of the Exchange Agreements, the holders agreed to exchange an aggregate principal amount of approximately $124.3 million of Notes plus accrued interest held by them in exchange for an aggregate of 10,932,222 shares of Tilray’s Class 2 common stock (“Shares”). Effectively, Tilray agreed to repurchase a portion of its Notes at a 36% discount to their face value, using shares issued at Tilray’s most recent closing market price on November 20, 2020 (which is equivalent to a conversion price of $7.36 per share). These exchange transactions closed on November 24, 2020.

On November 23, 2020, Tilray entered into additional Exchange Agreements with certain holders of the Notes. Under the terms of the Exchange Agreements, the holders agreed to exchange an aggregate principal amount of approximately $72.9 million of Notes plus accrued interest held by them in exchange for an aggregate of 6,407,355 shares. Effectively, Tilray agreed to repurchase a portion of its Notes at a 42% discount to their face value, using shares issued at Tilray’s most recent closing market price on November 23, 2020 (which is equivalent to a conversion price of $6.68 per share). These exchange transactions are expected to close on or about November 25, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.

Immediately following the exchange of the Notes contemplated by the Exchange Agreements, approximately $277.9 million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes will remain outstanding.

The foregoing description of the Exchange Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Exchange Agreement attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.

On November 23, 2020 and November 24, 2020, Tilray issued press releases announcing the Exchange Agreements, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and 99.3, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.

This Current Report does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offering would be unlawful.

 

Item 3.02

Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

The disclosure under Item 1.01 above is incorporated by reference herein. The issuance of the Shares under the Exchange Agreements is being made pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), only to investors that qualified as “qualified institutional buyers” (as such term is defined under the Securities Act) or large institutional investors.
