MERCADOLIBRE INC : Other Events (form 8-K)

06/10/2021 | 08:54am EDT

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On June 9, 2021, MercadoLibre, Inc. (the "Company") terminated certain of its outstanding capped call transactions (the "Relevant Capped Call Transactions"). The Company entered into the Relevant Capped Call Transactions on August 21, 2018, August 29, 2018 and November 7, 2018 to hedge, in part, its obligation to deliver shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per share ("Common Stock"), upon conversion of its 2.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028 (the "Convertible Notes"). $880,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Notes were initially issued, of which $439,092,000 aggregate principal amount remains outstanding as of the date hereof. As consideration for termination of the Relevant Capped Calls, the Company will receive $102,381,910 in cash and 57,047 shares of Common Stock.

On June 7, 2021, the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board") authorized the use of part or all of the cash proceeds of terminating the Relevant Capped Call Transactions to repurchase shares of Common Stock (the "Share Repurchases"). The Company expects to conduct the Share Repurchases at any time and from time to time during a period ending on December 31, 2021, in compliance with applicable federal securities laws, through open-market purchases, derivatives transactions and trading plans established in accordance with SEC rules, which may include 10b5-1 plans. The timing of the Share Repurchases will depend on factors including market conditions and prices, the Company's liquidity requirements and alternative uses of capital, and there is no assurance as to the number of shares of Common Stock that will be repurchased or that there will be any Share Repurchases. The Board's authorization of the Share Repurchases is additional to the share repurchase authorization that the Board granted in August, 2020 and that expires in August, 2021, for aggregate consideration of up to $350 million, of which, as of the date hereof, the Company has spent approximately $171 million and approximately $179 million remains available.
