SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Inphi Corporation (“Inphi”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marvell Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVL) (“MTI”), announced today the final results of its 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, the “2021 Indenture”), among Inphi, as issuer, MTI, as guarantor, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee, governing the 2021 Notes, and (ii) the Indenture, dated as of April 24, 2020 (as amended, the “2025 Indenture”), among Inphi, as issuer, MTI, as guarantor, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, governing the 2025 Notes.  The tender offers expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on June 1, 2021 (the “Expiration Date”).

The trustee, paying agent and conversion agent for the 2021 Notes, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “2021 Notes Trustee”), and the trustee, paying agent and conversion agent for the 2025 Notes, U.S. Bank National Association (the “2025 Notes Trustee” and, together with the 2021 Notes Trustee, the “Trustees”), have advised the Company that none of the 2021 Notes and none of the 2025 Notes were validly tendered pursuant to the tender offers.

As previously announced, 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, constituted a Fundamental Change and a Make-Whole Fundamental Change under each of the Indentures and holders of the Notes, therefore, had the right to convert their Notes in whole or in part (in a principal amount of $1,000 or an integral multiple thereof) during the period from the Merger Date to the close of business on June 1, 2021 (the “Make-Whole Convertibility Period”) into 2.323 shares of common stock, $0.002 par value per share, of MTI (each, an “MTI Share”) and $66.00 in cash, without interest, plus cash in lieu of any fractional MTI Shares (the “Merger Consideration”) at the applicable increased conversion rate.  Specifically, during the Make-Whole Convertibility Period, each 2021 Note was 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 was convertible into $567.27 in cash and 19.9662 MTI Shares, with cash paid in lieu of any fractional share. The Make-Whole Convertibility Period has now expired.

If a holder of the 2021 Notes failed to exercise its conversion right during the Make-Whole Convertibility Period, such holder will continue to be entitled to convert their 2021 Notes into 41.2351 MTI Shares and $1,171.55 in cash (such amounts calculated by multiplying the conversion rate in effect immediately prior to the closing of the Delaware Merger times the Merger Consideration) up until the close of business on the second Scheduled Trading Day (as such term as defined in the 2021 Indenture) immediately preceding the maturity date of the 2021 Notes in accordance with the terms of the 2021 Indenture. However, such holder will no longer be entitled to receive the increased conversion rate referenced above resulting from the Delaware Merger constituting a Make-Whole Fundamental Change.

If a holder of the 2025 Notes failed to exercise its conversion right during the Make-Whole Convertibility Period, such holder will no longer be entitled to convert its 2025 Notes as a result of the Delaware Merger constituting a Fundamental Change or Make-Whole Fundamental Change, and will no longer be entitled to the increased conversion rate referenced above.  The 2025 Notes, however, will continue to be convertible until June 30, 2021 in accordance with Section 14.01(b)(iv) of the 2025 Indenture as a result of the Last Reported Sale Price (as defined in the 2025 Indenture) of Inphi’s common stock having exceeding $162.3802 (130% of the then-applicable conversion price of $124.91) for at least 20 Trading Days (whether or not consecutive) during the period of 30 consecutive Trading Days ending on the last Trading Day of Inphi’s calendar quarter ended March 31, 2021.  Accordingly, Holders of the 2025 Notes may continue to surrender them for conversion into 18.5977 MTI Shares and $528.39 in cash (such amounts calculated by multiplying the conversion rate in effect immediately prior to the closing of the Delaware Merger times the Merger Consideration) during the calendar quarter (and only during such calendar quarter) commencing on April 1, 2021 and ending on June 30, 2021.  After June 30, 2021, holders of the 2025 Notes will need to wait until the occurrence of another event giving rise to the right to convert their 2025 Notes in accordance with the terms of the 2025 Indenture.

As of the close of business on June 1, 2021, $115,000 aggregate principal amount of 2021 Notes remain outstanding and $3,000 aggregate principal amount of 2025 Notes remain outstanding, in each case after giving effect to any Notes for which the holder has delivered an irrevocable notice of conversion.
