Item 3.02

Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities

On November 14, 2022, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it has entered into privately negotiated exchange agreements with several existing institutional holders of its 3.749% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2024 (the “2024 notes”), 4.915% Senior Notes due 2034 (the “2034 notes”) and 5.165% Senior Notes due 2044 (the “2044 notes”). The existing holders collectively exchanged approximately $69 million aggregate principal amount of 2024 notes (being all of the existing holders’ beneficially owned 2024 notes), $5.8 million aggregate principal amount of 2034 notes and $48.2 million aggregate principal amount of 2044 notes (collectively, the “Exchange Notes”). Pursuant to the Exchange Agreements, Bed Bath & Beyond will issue an aggregate of 11.7 million shares of common stock to the existing holders in exchange for the Exchange Notes, including accrued and unpaid interest thereon (the “transaction”). Following the closing of the transaction, the Exchange Notes will be cancelled and no longer outstanding. The transaction is expected to close on or about November 16, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions. The 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.
