Inphi Corporation issued $287.5 million principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 in an upsized transaction to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Inphi will settle conversions of the notes by paying or delivering, as the case may be, cash, shares of its common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of its common stock, at its election. In addition, holders may require Inphi to repurchase their notes upon the occurrence of a fundamental change (as defined in 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. The underwriters fully exercised their option to purchase an additional $37.5 million in aggregate principal amount of notes to cover over-allotments. Needham & Company acted as a co-manager for this transaction. Inphi intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the notes to pay the cost of certain capped call transactions. Inphi intends to use the remainder of the net proceeds from the offering of the notes for general corporate purposes, including financing potential acquisitions and other strategic transactions.
