On December 12, 2012, Bottomline Technologies (de), Inc. (the “Company”) completed a registered underwritten public offering (the “Offering”) of $189.75 million aggregate principal amount of its 1.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2017 (the “Notes”) including the underwriters’ exercise in full of their over-allotment option of $24.75 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes pursuant to an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”), dated December 6, 2012, by and between the Company and RBC Capital Markets, LLC, as representative of the several underwriters named therein. For a description of the terms of the Offering and the Notes, see Item 8.01 of the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on December 7, 2012, which is incorporated herein by reference.

The Company issued the Notes under an indenture dated December 12, 2012 (the “Base Indenture”) by and between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the “Trustee”) and a First Supplemental Indenture dated December 12, 2012 (the “First Supplemental Indenture”) by and between the Company and the Trustee (the Base Indenture, as so amended and supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, the “Indenture”). The Base Indenture and Supplemental Indenture (including the form of Note) are filed as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, to this report and are incorporated herein by reference. The terms of the Notes issued pursuant to the Indenture are described in the section of the Prospectus Supplement relating to the Notes entitled “Description of the Notes,” which is incorporated herein by reference.

In connection with the offering of the Notes, on December 6, 2012, the Company entered into convertible note hedge transactions and, on December 11, 2012, the Company entered into additional base convertible note hedge transactions (collectively, the “Note Hedge Transactions”) with Royal Bank of Canada and Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch (the “Hedge Counterparties”), with an initial strike price equal to the initial conversion price of the Notes.

The warrants will be net share settled, subject to the Company’s ability to elect cash settlement of the warrants under certain conditions, and will cover, subject to customary antidilution adjustments, approximately 6.3 million shares of the Company’s common stock.

The warrants were issued to the Hedge Counterparties pursuant to the exemption from registration set forth in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. There were no underwriting commissions or discounts in connection with the sale of the warrants.
