Overview Rapid7 is a leading cyber security solutions provider, on a mission to make successful security tools and practices accessible to all. Rapid7 Insight Platform technology, expert services, and thought-leading research enables over 9,000 customers to improve their security programs so that they can safely advance and innovate. In the nearly 20 years that Rapid7 has been in business, security companies and trends have come and gone, while broader technology innovation continues to advance rapidly. Every company is now a technology company, and rampant innovation inevitably creates security risk. The migration of businesses to the cloud and ubiquitous connected devices present security teams with an increasingly complex, ever-changing, and unpredictable attack surface. We believe as cybersecurity challenges continue to rise exponentially, two key factors can prevent organizations from effectively managing their growing security exposure. First, the tools to manage complex security problems are often equally complicated to use. Second, there is a scarcity of cybersecurity professionals who are qualified to successfully manage these sophisticated tools. These two factors compound the difficulties that resource-constrained organizations face when attempting to minimize their security exposure, meet security compliance regulations and provide visibility to their leadership. The expanding divide between risk created through innovation and risk managed by security teams is called the Security Achievement Gap. We believe Rapid7 is uniquely positioned to improve how customer security challenges are addressed. Our solutions simplify the complex, allowing teams to more effectively reduce vulnerabilities, monitor malicious behavior, investigate and shut down attacks, and automate routine tasks. All of our solutions and services are built with and supported by the expertise of our dedicated team of security researchers and consultants, who bring knowledge of attacker behavior and emerging vulnerabilities directly to customers. We also continue to invest in further simplifying our technology to improve usability, lowering the barrier to managing security for teams and organizations who lack resources. While our security technology is the foundation of our mission to make successful security accessible to all, technology alone will not solve today's cybersecurity challenges. Our ongoing commitment to researching and partnering with the technology community helps to curb new security risks born through innovation. We are also investing in under-served, at risk communities, like non-profits and hospitals, to better understand their needs and make security technology and services accessible. By continuously improving our technology, stemming the creation of risk in the community, and making security more usable and accessible, Rapid7 aims to close the Security Achievement Gap. We market and sell our products and professional services to organizations of all sizes globally, including mid-market businesses, enterprises, non-profits, educational institutions and government agencies. Our customers span a wide variety of industries such as technology, energy, financial services, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing, media and entertainment, Table of Contents retail, education, real estate, transportation, government and professional services. As of March 31, 2020, we had over 9,000 customers in 141 countries, including 45% of the Fortune 100. Our revenue was not concentrated with any individual customer and no customer represented more than 1% of our revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2020 or 2019. We sell our products and professional services through direct inside and field sales teams and indirect channel partner relationships. Our sales teams focus on both new customer acquisition as well as up-selling and cross-selling additional offerings to our existing customers. Our sales teams are organized by geography, consisting of the Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Asia Pacific (APAC), as well as by target organization size. Our highly technical sales engineers help define customer use cases, manage solution evaluations and train channel partners. In addition, we maintain a global channel partner network that complements our sales organization, particularly in EMEA, APAC and Latin America. Recent Developments Acquisition of Divvy Cloud Corporation On May 1, 2020, we acquired Divvy Cloud Corporation (DivvyCloud), a Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) company, for consideration of approximately $130.8 million in cash paid at closing, an aggregate of 200,596 shares of Rapid7's common stock to be issued to the founders of DivvyCloud in three equal annual installments beginning on the first anniversary of the closing date and $7.4 million in deferred cash payments. We also issued restricted stock units pursuant to our equity incentive plan with an aggregate fair market value of approximately $12.0 million to certain employees of DivvyCloud, subject to vesting conditions. Convertible Senior Notes On May 1, 2020, we issued $230.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due May 1, 2025 (collectively, the 2025 Notes). The total net proceeds from the offering, after deducting initial purchase discounts and estimated debt issuance costs, were approximately $223.2 million. The 2025 Notes are unsecured obligations and bear interest at a fixed rate of 2.25% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year, commencing on November 1, 2020. The 2025 Notes will mature on May 1, 2025, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased. The Notes do not contain any financial covenants. The 2025 Notes are governed by an indenture between the Company, as issuer, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the 2025 Indenture).

In connection with the issuance of the 2025 Notes, we entered into capped call transactions with certain counterparties (the Capped Calls). We used $27.3 million of the net proceeds from the 2025 Notes to purchase the Capped Calls. The Capped Calls are expected to offset potential dilution to our common stock upon conversion of the 2025 Notes. The Capped Calls have an initial cap price of $93.88 per share (which initially represents a premium of 100% over the last reported sale price of our common stock on April 28, 2020), subject to certain adjustments.
