On May 23, 2013, United Continental Holdings, Inc. (UAL or the Company) entered into agreements with three of its existing securityholders to issue a total of 5,931,629 shares of UAL common stock in exchange for $51,534,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Companys outstanding 6% convertible senior notes due 2029 (the Notes) held by such securityholders. The number of shares issued was determined based on a conversion ratio of 115.1013 shares of UAL common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes being exchanged, which is the conversion ratio in the Indenture, dated October 7, 2009 (the Indenture), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., under which the Notes were issued. In addition, the Company agreed to make a cash payment to the three securityholders to compensate them for accrued interest through the date of settlement and for a portion of the foregone interest that would have accrued, absent the exchange, through the earliest date on which the Company has the option to redeem the Notes under the Indenture. The Company issued the shares of UAL common stock on May 29, 2013 in a transaction exempt from registration pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as the exchange of the Notes for UAL common stock was made by the Company with its existing securityholders exclusively in privately negotiated transactions where no commission or other remuneration was paid. The Notes acquired by the Company in the exchange will be retired by the Company.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
