Veeco Announces Repurchase of $111.5 Million of Its 2.70% Convertible Senior Notes Due 2023

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Nov. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veeco Instruments Inc. (“Veeco”) (NASDAQ: VECO) today announced that it has entered into a privately negotiated note purchase agreement with Lynrock Lake LP under which Veeco will repurchase approximately $111.5 million in aggregate principal amount of Veeco’s outstanding 2.70% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”) from Lynrock Lake Master Fund LP for cash consideration of approximately $115.6 million, and approximately $1.0 million of accrued and unpaid interest.

“We are excited to take this step to improve our capital structure,” commented Bill Miller, Veeco’s Chief Executive Officer. “With this repurchase, Veeco will have retired over 80% of our 2023 debt maturity obligation. This transaction de-levers our balance sheet, reduces potential dilution, and allows us to focus on continuing our growth strategy.”

The repurchase is expected to close on November 10, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. Following the repurchase, approximately $20.2 million aggregate principal amount of Notes will be outstanding.

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Continued Absence Of Breakdowns Is A Positive Sign The market continues to send mixed signals (some neutral or healthy signals but some risk-off signals as well), but as long as the Russell 2000 index (IWM) is above $208, the Russell Micro Caps index (IWC) is above $134-$135, and the S&P 500 is above 4495, we cannot be bearish.
