("Qihoo 360" or the "Company") (NYSE: QIHU) today announced that it plans to offer US$550 million principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2018, subject to market conditions and other factors. Qihoo 360 plans to grant the initial purchasers of the notes a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional US$50 million principal amount of notes to cover over-allotments, if any. The notes will be convertible into Qihoo 360's American Depositary Shares ("ADSs"), with every two ADSs representing three Class A ordinary shares of Qihoo 360.

Qihoo 360 anticipates using the proceeds for general corporate purposes. The conversion rate and other terms of the notes have not been finalized and will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering.

The notes are to be offered and sold in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and to non-U.S. persons outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
