ROCK HILL, S.C., Dec. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) (“the Company”) today announced that it has entered into separate, privately negotiated repurchase agreements with a limited number of holders of its 0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (the “Notes”) to repurchase approximately $135 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes at a 26% discount to par value. The debt repurchase will be paid in cash from the Company’s balance sheet.
