The interest rate, conversion rate, conversion price and other terms of the notes will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering.
WebMD intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes for general corporate purposes, which may include acquisitions and repurchases of WebMD common stock, and for working capital.
