Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
Preferred Stock Conversion Agreement
 
On June 8, 2020, The Providence Service Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Preferred Stock Conversion Agreement (the “Conversion Agreement”) with Coliseum Capital Partners, L.P. and certain funds and accounts managed by Coliseum Capital Management, LLC (collectively, the “Holders”), pursuant to which, among other things, (a) the Company agreed to purchase 369,120 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Series A Preferred Stock”) held by the Holders in the aggregate, in exchange for (i) $209.88 in cash per share of Series A Preferred Stock, plus (ii) a cash amount equal to accrued but unpaid dividends on such shares of Series A Preferred Stock through the day prior to the Initial Conversion Closing (as defined below), and (b) the Holders will convert 369,120 shares of Series A Preferred Stock into (i) 2.5075 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (“Common Stock”) for each share of Series A Preferred Stock, plus (ii) a cash payment equal to accrued but unpaid dividends on such shares of Series A Preferred Stock through the day prior to Initial Conversion Closing, plus (iii) a cash payment of $8.82 per share of Series A Preferred Stock.  The closing of such transactions is expected to occur on June 11, 2020 (the “Initial Conversion Closing”).  As of June 5, 2020, there were 12,855,649 shares of Common Stock outstanding.  Pro forma shares of Common Stock outstanding for the Initial Conversion Closing would be 13,781,216.  The induced conversion premium to be paid by the Company to holders of the Series A Preferred Stock in the Initial Conversion Closing and the redemption (as described below) totals $7.0 million.
 
Lock-up Period
 
Pursuant to the Conversion Agreement, each Holder is subject to a lock-up prohibiting the sale or transfer of any of its shares of Common Stock until October 6, 2020 (the “Initial Lock-up Period”).  Upon the expiration of the Initial Lock-up Period, the Holders may, in the aggregate, transfer up to 448,665 shares of Common Stock (on a cumulative basis), during each of (a) the period between the end of the Initial Lock-Up Period and December 31, 2020, (b) the period between January 1, 2021 and March 31, 2021, (c) the period between April 1, 2021 and June 30, 2021, and (d) the period between July 1, 2021 and September 30, 2021.
 
The Holders have also agreed not to transfer or convert any of their remaining shares of Series A Preferred Stock, if as a result of such transfer the Holders would hold less than a majority of the Series A Preferred Stock remaining outstanding, until the earliest of (a) the effectiveness of the COD Amendment (described below), (b) termination of the Conversion Agreement and (c) the date that no shares of Series A Preferred Stock are held by anyone other than the Holders.  The Holders have also agreed to vote their remaining shares of Series A Preferred Stock as requested by the Board of Directors of the Company (acting through the members of the Board of Directors unaffiliated with any of the Holders), with respect to certain voting matters requiring the consent of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock, acting as a class.
 
Stockholder Approval
 
The Company intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) a proxy statement relating to a special meeting of holders of its Common Stock and Series A Preferred Stock to consider and vote upon the approval of an amendment (the “COD Amendment”) to the Certificate of Designations of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “COD”). The COD Amendment provides for, among other things, the automatic redemption of all remaining shares of Series A Preferred Stock for an amount in cash equal to $209.88 per share of Series A Preferred Stock (plus any accrued but unpaid dividends as of the day prior to the redemption), and is conditioned upon, such stockholder approval.  The amendment would become effective and the redemption would occur no earlier than five business days after public announcement that stockholders have approved the amendment. Each Holder has agreed with the Company to vote any shares of Common Stock and Series A Preferred Stock they hold in favor of the COD Amendment.
 
If, prior to the effectiveness of the COD Amendment, the Company exercises its optional conversion right pursuant to Section 6(b) of the COD, the Company will, immediately prior to such conversion, repurchase the Holder’s remaining shares of Series A Preferred Stock for (i) a cash amount equal to $209.88 per preferred share plus (ii) a cash amount equal to accrued but unpaid dividends on the such preferred shares through the day prior to the conversion date.
 
The foregoing summary of the Conversion Agreement and the COD Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and is qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Conversion Agreement and the COD Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

The Providence Service Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Corporation”), hereby certifies as follows:

 

FIRST: The Corporation’s Certificate of Designations of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series A Certificate of Designations”), which was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on February 6, 2015, is hereby amended to add the following new Section 18 thereto:

 

Section 18. Redemption.

 

(a) Redemption at the Option of the Corporation Following Approval. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, immediately following the effectiveness of the Certificate of Amendment containing this sentence (the “Redemption Date”), without any further action on the part of the Corporation or any stockholder thereof, each share of Series A Preferred Stock shall be redeemed, to the fullest extent permitted by law, for an amount in cash equal to $209.88 (plus any accrued but unpaid dividends as of the day prior to the Redemption Date on such share) (the “Redemption Price”), in each case in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 18.

 

(b) Notice of Redemption. As promptly as practicable following the approval of the Amendment contained in the Certificate of Amendment containing this sentence, the Corporation shall give notice (or cause notice to be given) to each holder of Series A Preferred Stock of the redemption on the Redemption Date of such holder’s shares of Series A Preferred Stock, which notice may include a letter of transmittal in such form as the Corporation determines appropriate for the surrender of the certificate(s) representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock redeemed pursuant to this Section 18. Such notice shall be given by first class mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the holders of record of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock at their respective last addresses appearing on the books of the Corporation.

Each notice of redemption given to a holder shall state the place or places where certificates representing shares of Series A Preferred Stock redeemed pursuant to Section 18(a) hereof are to be surrendered in exchange for payment of cash in an amount equal to the sum of the aggregate Redemption Price for such shares of Series A Preferred Stock. If the certificate(s) representing any shares of Series A Preferred Stock are alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed, the holder thereof shall surrender, in lieu of such certificate(s), an affidavit that such certificate(s) have been lost, stolen or destroyed and an indemnity or bond in an amount the Corporation determines to be sufficient to indemnify it against any claim that may be made against it on account of the alleged loss, theft or destruction of any such certificate(s).

 

 

 

(c) Effectiveness of Redemption. Section 7(e) shall apply to all shares of Series A Preferred Stock redeemed pursuant to Section 18(a) hereof.

 

SECOND: The foregoing amendment was duly adopted by (i) the board of directors of the Corporation in accordance with the provisions of Section 242 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and (ii) the affirmative vote of holders representing not less than (a) a majority in voting power of the outstanding shares of capital stock of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon and (b) a majority of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, in each case, in accordance with Section 242 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and the Series A Certificate of Designations.

Exhibit 99.1

 

 

 

Providence Announces Strategic Conversion Agreement with Holder of Majority of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock

 

ATLANTA, GA – June 8, 2020 -- The Providence Service Corporation (“Providence” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: PRSC), the nation’s largest provider of non-emergency medical transportation (“NEMT”) programs and holder of a minority interest in Matrix Medical Network, today announced that the Company has entered into a strategic Conversion Agreement with Coliseum Capital Management, LLC (“Coliseum”), providing initially for the conversion of 738,240 shares of the Company’s 5.5%/8.5% Series A convertible preferred stock held by Coliseum into cash totaling approximately $80.7 million plus approximately 925,600 shares of Providence common stock. Coliseum owns approximately 96.5% of the Company’s preferred stock, or 765,916 preferred shares.

 

After the initial conversion of Coliseum’s preferred shares, which is expected to occur on June 11, 2020, the Company plans to file a proxy statement to allow for the redemption of the remaining preferred shares, including those held by minority holders.

 

Pro forma for the conversion of Coliseum’s preferred shares on June 11, 2020, Coliseum will own approximately 13.0% of the Company’s outstanding common shares. The common shares currently owned by Coliseum as well as those issued to Coliseum from the preferred conversion will be subject to a 120 day lock up, after which Coliseum will be permitted to transfer up to 25% of its common shares, per quarter (on a cumulative basis). This transaction is expected to be accretive to Providence’s earnings.

 

Daniel E. Greenleaf, President and Chief Executive Officer of Providence, commented, “We are extremely pleased to announce this conversion agreement with Coliseum Capital. The conversion of our preferred stock simplifies our capital structure, which will consist of common equity and a manageable level of debt. Additionally, this transaction creates alignment among our stakeholders, removes restrictive covenants, enhances cash flow, addresses a perceived overhang among many of our shareholders and positions us to build greater common share liquidity in an orderly way.”

 

Mr. Greenleaf concluded, “We would like to thank Coliseum for a great partnership, which has contributed meaningfully to the Company’s value creation over the last eight years, and we are grateful for Coliseum’s continued support and vote of confidence in our strategy to grow, innovate and lead the nation’s non-emergency medical transportation industry.”

 

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. acted as exclusive financial advisor to the Company for this transaction. Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP is acting as legal counsel to the Company.
