Docebo Announces Initial Public Offering in the United States and Public Offering in Canada
TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Docebo Inc. (“Docebo”) (TSX:DCBO) today announced the launch of a marketed public offering of Docebo’s common shares in the United States and Canada, representing Docebo's initial public offering in the United States.
In connection with the initial public offering in the United States, Docebo has filed an application to list its common shares on The Nasdaq Global Select Market (the "Nasdaq") under the ticker "DCBO". Trading of Docebo’s common shares is expected to commence on the Nasdaq following pricing of the offering. Docebo’s common shares will continue to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") under the symbol "DCBO".
A total of US$125 million of common shares will be offered by Docebo for sale in the offering, which will be conducted through a syndicate of underwriters led by Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and Canaccord Genuity, as joint lead book-running managers. The offering will be priced in the context of the market, with the price and total size of the offering to be determined at the time of entering into an underwriting agreement for the offering (the “Underwriting Agreement”).
Docebo will also grant the underwriters an over-allotment option, exercisable for a period of 30 days from the date of the Underwriting Agreement, to purchase up to US$18.75 million of additional common shares, representing in the aggregate 15% of the total number of common shares to be sold pursuant to the offering.
Docebo expects that the net proceeds of the offering will be used primarily to strengthen the Company's financial position and allow it to pursue its growth strategies, which include: expanding its customer base; supporting the growth of existing customers; expanding its solutions; and other general corporate purposes. Closing of the offering will be subject to a number of customary conditions, including the entering into of the Underwriting Agreement, the listing of Docebo’s common shares on the Nasdaq and the TSX, and any required approvals of the Nasdaq and the TSX.
In connection with the offering, Docebo filed a preliminary prospectus supplement to its base shelf prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada. The preliminary prospectus supplement and a base shelf prospectus have also been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as part of a registration statement on Form F-10 under the U.S.-Canada multijurisdictional disclosure system (MJDS). The public offering will be made in Canada only by means of the base shelf prospectus and preliminary prospectus supplement and in the United States only by means of the registration statement, including the base shelf prospectus and preliminary prospectus supplement.
