(NASDAQ: MRVL) (“MTI”), today announced that it has commenced tender offers to repurchase any and all of its outstanding 0.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 (the “2021 Notes”) and 0.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes” and, together with the 2021 Notes, the “Notes”) in compliance with the terms of (i) the Indenture, dated as of September 12, 2016 (as amended and supplemented, the “2021 Notes Indenture”), among Inphi, MTI and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee, governing the 2021 Notes, and (ii) the Indenture, dated as of April 24, 2020 (as amended and supplemented, the “2025 Notes Indenture” and, together with the 2021 Notes Indenture, the “Indentures”), among Inphi, MTI and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, governing the 2025 Notes. The tender offers are required to be made under the Indentures as a result of the consummation on April 20, 2021 (the “Merger Date”) of the merger of Indigo Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of MTI, with and into Inphi (the “Delaware Merger”), with Inphi continuing as a wholly owned subsidiary of MTI.
Under the terms of the Indentures, the Delaware Merger constituted a Fundamental Change and a Make-Whole Fundamental Change (such terms as defined in each of the Indentures), and holders of the Notes, therefore, have the right to require Inphi to repurchase all or a portion of their Notes at a purchase price equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of their Notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the Fundamental Change Repurchase Date (as defined below).
As previously announced on the Merger Date, as a result of the Delaware Merger, holders also have the right to convert their Notes in whole or in part (in a principal amount of $1,000 or an integral multiple thereof) into the merger consideration and, during the period from the Merger Date to the close of business on June 1, 2021 (the “Make-Whole Convertibility Period”), at the applicable increased conversion rate. Specifically, during the Make-Whole Convertibility Period, each 2021 Note will be convertible into $1,171.65 in cash and 41.2384 MTI Shares, with cash paid in lieu of any fractional share, and each 2025 Note will be convertible into $567.27 in cash and 19.9662 MTI Shares, with cash paid in lieu of any fractional share.
Tenders of the Notes in connection with the tender offers must be made prior to the expiration of the applicable tender offer and may be withdrawn at any time prior to the expiration of the applicable tender offer through compliance with the proper withdrawal procedure outlined in the offer to purchase for the applicable series of Notes (each an “Offer to Purchase” and together, the “Offers to Purchase”).
The tender offers will commence tomorrow, May 4, 2021, and will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on June 1, 2021. The repurchase date for any Notes tendered pursuant to the tender offers will be June 2, 2021 (the “Fundamental Change Repurchase Date”).
None of MTI, Inphi, their respective boards of directors, or the trustees, paying agents and conversion agents for the Notes and the respective tender offers, is making any recommendation to noteholders as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering their Notes in the tender offers. Noteholders must decide how many Notes they will tender, if any. The terms and conditions of the tender offers are described in the Offers to Purchase distributed to holders of the Notes.
