DALLAS, June 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — MoneyGram International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGI) (“MoneyGram” or the “Company”) announced today that it has established an “at-the-market” equity offering program (the “ATM Program”) under which it may offer and sell, from time to time, shares of its common stock (the “Shares”) having an aggregate sales price of up to $100 million, and has entered into an ATM Equity OfferingSM Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with BofA Securities, Inc. (“BofA”), as sales agent.
Upon delivery of an issuance notice and subject to the terms and conditions of the Sales Agreement, BofA will use commercially reasonable efforts, consistent with its normal trading and sales practices and applicable law and regulations, to sell the Shares from time to time based upon MoneyGram’s instructions for the sales, including price, time and size limits specified by the Company. Pursuant to the Sales Agreement, sales of the Shares may be made by any method permitted by law and deemed to be an “at the market” offering as defined in Rule 415 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including block trades, ordinary brokers’ transactions on Nasdaq or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices, or by any other method permitted by law. Under the terms of the Sales Agreement, MoneyGram may also sell Shares to BofA as principal for its own account, at a price to be agreed upon at the time of sale.
MoneyGram is not obligated to sell any Shares under the Sales Agreement and may at any time suspend solicitations and offers under the Sales Agreement. The Sales Agreement may be terminated by MoneyGram at any time by giving written notice to BofA for any reason or by BofA at any time by giving written notice to MoneyGram for any reason, or immediately under certain circumstances in accordance with the terms of the Sales Agreement. The ATM Program pursuant to the Sales Agreement will automatically terminate upon the issuance and sale of Shares having an aggregate sales price of $100 million.
