Ozon Holdings PLC Announces the Pricing of the Offering of Convertible Bonds

Ozon Holdings PLC. (NASDAQ and MOEX: “OZON”) (“Ozon” or the “Company”), a leading Russian e-commerce platform, announces the pricing of the offering of US$ 750 million in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured convertible bonds due 2026 (the “Offering” and the “Bonds”). The Bonds will be convertible into American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) of Ozon listed on the NASDAQ, each ADS representing one ordinary share of the Company.

The Company will issue the Bonds at 100% of their principal amount in minimum denominations of US$ 200,000 each and, unless previously purchased and cancelled, redeemed or converted, each will be redeemed at par on 24 February 2026. The Bonds will carry a coupon of 1.875% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrear on August 24 and February 24 in each year, with the first interest payment date on August 24, 2021. The initial conversion price will be set at a conversion premium of 42.5% above the volume weighted average price of one ADS on the NASDAQ Global Select Market between opening and closing of trading on 17 February 2021. The volume weighted average price will be announced by press release after the close of trading on the NASDAQ on that day. The conversion rights will be satisfied, at Ozon’s election, with cash, ADSs, or any combination thereof.

The initial conversion price of the Bonds will be subject to adjustments for any dividends as well as other standard convertible market anti-dilution adjustments. Bondholders will have the right to convert their Bonds into ADSs at the then prevailing conversion price on any date from (and including) 6 April 2021, up to (and including) until the date falling 50 New York dealing days prior to the final maturity date (unless previously redeemed).

The Company will be entitled to redeem the Bonds at any time (i) on or after 10 March 2024 if the value of the ADSs deliverable upon conversion of the Bonds is equal to or exceeds 130% of the principal amount of a Bond over a certain period or (ii) if 15% or less of the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds originally issued remain outstanding.

The Company expects to issue the Bonds on or around 24 February 2021 (the “Settlement Date”), and it will make an application for the Bonds to be listed on an internationally recognized, regularly operating stock exchange within 90 days after the settlement date of the Bonds.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering primarily for organic growth, expansion into new verticals, strategic investments, and general corporate purposes.

Under the terms of the Offering, the lock-up period will commence from the launch date until 90 calendar days after the Settlement Date for the Issuer, on the terms consistent with a recent public equity market

transaction of the Issuer, subject to certain exceptions and waiver by the Joint Bookrunners. The lock-up from the recent public equity market transaction of the Issuer will remain in force for all other parties subject to it.

The Bonds and the ADSs have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”). The Bonds and the ADSs may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or pursuant to an exemption from or in a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the Securities Act. The Bonds will be offered in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act through a private placement only to institutional investors that are not U.S. persons, outside the United States. This press release is being issued in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any of these securities in the United States or elsewhere, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale of the Bonds or the ADSs in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
