Blue Owl Capital Inc. Announces the Results of the Redemption of Public Warrants
NEW YORK, NY, August 24, 2022 Blue Owl Capital Inc. (NYSE: OWL) (Blue Owl or the Company), today announced the results of the redemption of all of its outstanding redeemable warrants (the Public Warrants) to purchase shares of the Companys Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the Class A Shares), pursuant to the Amended and Restated Warrant Agreement, dated May 19, 2021 (the Warrant Agreement), by and between the Company and Computershare Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as warrant agent (the Warrant Agent), for a redemption price of $0.10 per Public Warrant (the Redemption Price) at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on August 18, 2022 (the Redemption Date).
On July 18, 2022, the Company issued a press release stating that, pursuant to the terms of the Warrant Agreement, it would redeem all of the outstanding Public Warrants at the Redemption Price. The redemption was triggered because the last sales price of the Class A Shares was at least $10.00 per share on each of twenty trading days within a thirty-day trading period ending on the third trading day prior to July 18, 2022. Certain warrants to purchase Class A Shares that were issued in a private placement (the Private Placement Warrants and, together with Public Warrants, the Warrants) were not subject to redemption under the Warrant Agreement and may remain outstanding following the redemption.
Of the 14,159,048 Warrants (9,159,048 Public Warrants and 5,000,000 Private Placement Warrants) that were outstanding on July 18, 2022, approximately 14,553 were exercised for cash at an exercise price of $11.50 per Class A Share in exchange for an aggregate of 14,553 Class A Shares and 8,961,029 were exercised on a cashless basis in exchange for an aggregate of 2,141,601 Class A Shares, in each case in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Agreement. Total cash proceeds generated from exercises of the Public Warrants were $171,185. Immediately following the redemption, the Company expects to have zero Public Warrants, 5,000,000 Private Placement Warrants and 442,117,260 of Class A Shares outstanding.
In connection with the redemption, the Warrants stopped trading on the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) and were delisted, with the trading halt announced after close of market on the Redemption Date. The redemption had no effect on the trading of the Class A Shares, which continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbol OWL.
