NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WebMD Health Corp. (Nasdaq: WBMD) today announced that it intends to offer $350 million of Convertible Notes due 2018 in a private placement. WebMD also expects to grant the initial purchaser in the proposed offering an option to purchase up to an additional $50 million aggregate principal amount of notes.  The notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933.  

The notes will be convertible into shares of WebMD's common stock, based on a conversion rate to be determined.  Interest on the notes will be payable semiannually in arrears on January 31 and July 31 of each year, beginning on July 31, 2011.  The notes will mature on January 31, 2018, unless previously repurchased or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.  The interest rate, conversion rate, conversion price and other terms of the notes will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering.  

WebMD intends to use up to $100 million of the net proceeds from the sale of the notes to repurchase shares of its common stock, and to use the remainder of the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include acquisitions and additional repurchases of its common stock, and for working capital.

The notes and the common stock of WebMD issuable upon conversion of the notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
