Rambus Announces Pricing Of $120 Million Convertible Senior Notes Offering

Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS) today announced the pricing of its offering of $120 million aggregate principal amount of its 1.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”). Rambus has granted the initial purchasers a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $18 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes on the same terms and conditions to cover over-allotments, if any. The offering is expected to close on August 16, 2013, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

The Notes will be unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of Rambus. Interest on the Notes will be paid semi-annually at a rate of 1.125% per annum, and the Notes will mature on August 15, 2018, unless earlier repurchased or converted. Holders may require Rambus to repurchase their Notes upon the occurrence of certain events that constitute a fundamental change under the indenture governing the Notes at a purchase price equal to the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the repurchase date. Rambus may not redeem the Notes prior to maturity.

Prior to May 15, 2018, the Notes will be convertible at the option of the holders only during certain periods upon the occurrence of specified events, and thereafter until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, the Notes will be convertible at the option of the holders at any time. The Notes will be convertible, subject to certain conditions, into cash up to the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be converted, and any excess conversion value will be convertible into cash, shares of common stock or a combination of cash and shares of common stock, at Rambus’ election. The initial conversion rate will be 82.8329 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $12.07 per share of common stock, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. This initial conversion price represents a premium of approximately 37.5% relative to the last reported sale price of Rambus’ common stock of $8.78 per share on August 12, 2013.
