Must read

BURLINGTON, Mass. and PLANO, Texas, U.S. — Keurig Dr Pepper has announced on March 9, 2020, the completion of its previously-announced registered public secondary offering of 40.0 million shares of the Company’s common stock, or approximately 2.8% of the Company’s outstanding common stock, for gross proceeds of approximately $1.08 billion.

All of the shares have been sold by Maple Holdings B.V. (“Maple”) and by Mondelēz International Holdings LLC. The selling stockholders have granted the underwriter a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 6.0 million shares of the Company’s common stock.

Maple is a holding company majority-owned by JAB Holdings B.V. (“JAB”). JAB has directly purchased 7.4 million shares of the Company’s common stock in this offering at a price equal to the price paid for the common stock by the underwriter for approximately $200 million. JAB may also purchase additional shares if the underwriter exercises its option. The net impact of the offering increased the float by approximately 2.3%.

Following the completion of the offering, and assuming the underwriter does not subsequently exercise its option to purchase additional shares, Maple and JAB will collectively beneficially own approximately 65.1% of the Company’s outstanding common stock.

Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC is acting as underwriter for the offering.

The underwriter may offer the shares of common stock from time to time to purchasers directly or through agents, or through brokers in brokerage transactions on the New York Stock Exchange, or to dealers in negotiated transactions or in a combination of such methods of sale, at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices, subject to its right to reject any order in whole or in part.
