SEATTLE, March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Redfin Corporation (NASDAQ: RDFN) today announced that it has reached an agreement to sell $110 million of capital stock to Durable Capital Partners LP ("Durable"). The proposed sale consists of $70 million of common stock at $15.61 per share and $40 million of convertible preferred stock. The convertible preferred stock has an annual dividend of 5.5 percent. The preferred stock has a conversion price of $19.51 per share, is convertible at Durable's option, and will convert automatically after three years if Redfin's common stock closes above $27.32 for 30 consecutive trading days.

"In chaotic times, he understands our long-term commitments to our culture and our technology, and why those commitments position us to take share in a housing market that is being transformed by this pandemic to be more virtual, convenient and efficient.
