Galaxy Launches Senior Note Exchangeable Offering
Galaxy Digital, an investment company (TSX:GLXY), seeks to raise $500,000,000 through an exchangeable senior note offering. This convertible debt will help the business grow. Galaxy explains that the private placing will close early in December 2021. This will require approval from Toronto Stock Exchange. Notes will only be sold to persons who qualify as “institutional buyers,” the announcement explains.
“Galaxy Digital has agreed to issue and sell $500 million aggregate principal amount of 3.00% exchangeable senior notes due 2026 to certain purchasers, including affiliates of Arca, NZ Funds, Senator Investment Group and XN, in a private placement under the Securities Act of 1933,” Galaxy revealed on Tuesday.

Galaxy Digital plans to make use of the Notes Offering proceeds to fund growth initiatives in its various business lines as well as general corporate purposes.
