INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS FORM 6-K REPORT
Scorpio Tankers Inc. (the “Company”) announced today that effective as of February 23, 2017, the conversion rate of its Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 (the “Notes”) will be adjusted to reflect the Company’s payment of a cash dividend with respect to its common shares. The new conversion rate for the Notes will be 97.9316 shares of the Company’s common shares per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes, representing an increase of the prior conversion rate of 0.2277 shares for each $1,000 principal amount of the Notes. The Company is adjusting the conversion rate due to the payment of a previously announced cash dividend of $0.01 per common share, payable on or around March 30, 2017 to all shareholders as of February 23, 2017 (the “Record Date”).
The adjustment to the conversion rate was made pursuant to section 14.04(d) of the indenture for the Notes, which applies to cash dividends or distributions made by the Company. In accordance with section 14.04(d), the Company has adjusted the conversion rate for the Notes due to the cash dividend pursuant to the following formula:
the conversion rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution;
the conversion rate in effect immediately after the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution;
the closing sale price of the common shares on the New York Stock Exchange on the trading day immediately preceding the Ex-Dividend Date (February 21, 2017) for such dividend or distribution; and
the amount in cash per share the Company distributes to all or substantially all holders of the common shares.
The information contained in this Report on Form 6-K is hereby incorporated by reference into the Company's registration statement on Form F-3 (File no. 333-210284) that was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission effective March 18, 2016.
