Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD) today announced the pricing of an offering of $32.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.75% convertible senior notes due 2017 (the “Notes”). The Notes are being offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Interest on the Notes will be paid semi-annually at an annual rate of 6.75% per year and will mature on June 15, 2017, unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted. The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior, unsecured basis by certain of Mindspeed’s subsidiaries.
The Notes will be convertible into shares of Mindspeed common stock at an initial conversion rate of 256.4103 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes, which is equivalent to a conversion price of approximately $3.90 per share of common stock, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. This initial conversion price represents a premium of approximately 30% relative to the last reported sale price on June 11, 2012 of Mindspeed’s common stock of $3.00.
On or after June 15, 2013, in the event that the last reported sale price of Mindspeed’s common stock exceeds the conversion price then in effect for 20 or more trading days during any 30 consecutive trading day period ending within five trading days prior to the date Mindspeed receives a notice of conversion, Mindspeed will, in addition to delivering shares upon conversion of the Notes (and cash in lieu of fractional shares), make a “make-whole premium” payment in cash, shares of Mindspeed common stock or a combination thereof, subject to certain limitations, at the option of Mindspeed, equal to the sum of the remaining scheduled payments of interest that would have been made on the Notes to be converted had such Notes remained outstanding through the earlier of the date that is three years after the date Mindspeed receives the notice of conversion and June 15, 2017.
