Item 3.02

Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities

On November 9, 2022, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it has entered into a privately negotiated exchange agreement with an existing holder of its 4.915% Senior Notes due 2034 (the “2034 notes”) and 5.165% Senior Notes due 2044 (the “2044 notes”). The existing holder owns approximately $9.5 million aggregate principal amount of 2034 notes and $22.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2044 notes (collectively, the “exchange notes”). Pursuant to the exchange agreement, Bed Bath & Beyond will issue an aggregate of approximately 2.8 million shares of common stock to the existing holder, consisting of the issuance of (a) 1.8 million shares in exchange for the exchange notes, (b) 0.1 million shares in satisfaction of accrued and unpaid interest on the exchange notes, and (c) 0.9 million shares in exchange for a cash payment from the existing holder of $3.5 million (the “transaction”). Following the closing of the transaction, the exchange notes will be cancelled and no longer outstanding. The proceeds of the private placement of common stock will be used for general corporate purposes. The transaction is expected to close on or about November 14, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions. This transaction is exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(c) under the Securities Act of 1933. The Company relied on these exemptions from registration based in part on the nature of the transaction and the various representations made by the parties thereto.
