Uber (NYSE:UBER) stock is sliding lower on Monday after the ride-hailing company announced a $1.2 billion convertible senior notes offering.

This offer covers convertible senior notes that are due in 2028. The offering totals $1.2 billion and is being made to institutional investors. These investors also have a 13-day option to acquire another $180 million of the notes.

Uber already has plans for the funds it will raise from their senior convertible notes offering. The company will use some of the money for privately negotiated capped call transactions announced alongside today’s news. The remaining of the funds will be spent to repay, redeem or repurchase outstanding indebtedness.

UBER Stock Reaction on Monday

Investors were initially unhappy about the convertible senior notes offering announced by Uber. That resulted in the company’s shares falling during pre-market trading, as well as in them remaining down shortly after markets opened.

However, that negative momentum didn’t last long with the company’s shares currently up almost 1% as of Monday morning. That comes alongside 9 million shares changing hands, as compared to a daily average of about 19 million shares.
