Varex Imaging, Corp., a leading innovator, designer, and manufacturer of X-ray imaging components, has announced the pricing of its offering of US$175 million aggregate principal amount of its 4% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. In connection with the offering, Varex granted the initial purchasers a 13-day option to purchase, for settlement within a period of 13 days from, and including, the date notes are first issued, up to an additional US$25 million aggregate principal amount of notes.

The offering is expected to close on June 9, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.
