    Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced that Bain Capital Private Equity will make an investment of $750 million in Convertible Senior Notes to support the Companys growth initiatives.

    Bain Capital Private Equity has deep technology investing experience and a strong track record of helping companies scale, said Dheeraj Pandey, Chairman, Co-Founder and CEO of Nutanix. Bain Capital Private Equitys investment represents a strong vote of confidence in our position as a leader in the hybrid cloud infrastructure (HCI) market and our profound culture of customer delight.

    Nutanix is executing on a compelling vision for a differentiated hybrid cloud platform that provides flexible environments and is easily paired with other cloud platforms, commented David Humphrey, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Private Equity. We look forward to working closely with the Board and the management team to build on Nutanixs leadership position and realize its strong vision for the future, added Max de Groen, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Private Equity. In connection with the investment, Humphrey and de Groen will join the Nutanix Board of Directors following the close of the transaction, which is expected to occur in late September 2020.

    We are pleased to establish this partnership with Bain Capital Private Equity and look forward to the contributions Dave and Max will make as new board members to build on Nutanixs success, concluded Ravi Mhatre, Lead Independent Director.

    Bain Capital Private Equity has deep experience in the technology sector, having made investments in a wide range of companies including Applied Systems, BMC Software, CentralSquare Technologies, KIOXIA (formerly known as Toshiba Memory Corp.), NortonLifeLock Inc., Rocket Software, Symantec, Viewpoint Construction Software, Vertafore, Waystar, and Zelis.

    Under the terms of the investment, Bain Capital Private Equity will purchase $750 million in aggregate principal amount Convertible Senior Notes (the Notes). The Notes will have an initial conversion price of $27.75 per share of the Companys Class A Common Stock, subject to customary anti-dilution and other adjustments. The initial conversion price of $27.75 represents a 30.6% premium to Nutanixs volume-weighted average price (VWAP) over the trailing five (5) trading day period prior to Bain Capital Private Equitys signing of the definitive agreement to acquire the Notes. In addition, at the 12-month anniversary of the original issuance of the Notes, depending on the achievement of financial milestones, the conversion price may be subject to an additional, one-time adjustment, to an amount in the range of $25.25 to $27.75 per share. The Notes will mature on September 15, 2026, unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted. The Notes bear 2.5% interest per year, with such interest to be paid in kind on Notes held by Bain Capital Private Equity through an increase in the principal amount of the Notes. In connection with this transaction, Nutanixs Board has authorized the repurchase of up to $125 million of its Class A common shares that are intended to offset the dilutive effect of any shares the Company may issue to settle the potential conversion of the Notes.

    Additional information regarding this announcement may be found in a Form 8-K that will be filed today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    In separate press releases issued today, Nutanix announced a CEO succession plan and financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year 2020. These announcements are available on the Nutanix Investor Relations website at ir.nutanix.com.

    As tens of thousands of Californians begin recovery from hundreds of lightning-caused fires burning throughout the state, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) urges customers to follow important safety guidelines as they return to evacuation zones or burn areas.

    Since August 16, five major wildfires and more than a dozen smaller ones have burned more than 850,000 acres in PG&Es service area in Northern and Central California.

    The lightning-sparked wildfires have burned more than 1,500 structures and impacted nearly 40,000 PG&E electric customers.

    PG&E has safely restored power to approximately 30,000 customers. In the meantime, crews continue to work to restore power to the approximately 9,000 customers who still are without power. Most of those customers, as of early this afternoon, are located in fire zones where PG&E crews cannot enter until CAL FIRE provides access, indicating that the situation is safe for our workers.

    Below is a table showing the progress of customer outage restoration by fire zone areas. Currently there are approximately 9,000 customers without power, with about 8,300 customers in areas that are not currently accessible.

    PG&Es highest priority is helping first responders safely access impacted areas by clearing roadways of any electrical assets downed during these wildfire events. Additionally, PG&E crews remove damaged trees that pose a hazard to first responders including CAL FIRE, and public safety personnel/agencies.

    PG&E continues work to restore power to parts of its electric system that are near fires, but that ultimately werent affected.

    Once CAL FIRE deems it safe to do so, PG&E crews will assess damage to its equipment and restore service in all areas. These steps include:

    For customers, PG&E recommends the following safety tips for returning to homes and businesses in evacuation zones and burn areas.

    When local first responders give you the direction that you may return home, please take these steps to protect your family and home.
