AMD Announces Public Offerings of $600 Million of Common Stock and $450 Million of Convertible Senior Notes

AMD today announced that it intends to commence concurrent public offerings, subject to market and other conditions, of approximately $600 million of its common stock (the "Shares") and $450 million aggregate principal amount of its convertible senior notes due 2026 (the "New Notes"). AMD is offering all of the Shares and the New Notes. In addition, AMD expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to approximately $90 million of additional shares of common stock at the public offering price and up to $67.5 million principal amount of additional convertible senior notes.

AMD intends to use net proceeds of $1,020 million received from the offerings to repay its borrowings under its credit facility and/or to purchase its outstanding senior notes. After the completion of a tender offer for its outstanding senior notes, AMD has the option, but not the obligation, to call any and all of the untendered 7.75 percent Senior Notes due 2020 with any remaining net proceeds. AMD will use any remaining net proceeds for capital expenditures, working capital and other general corporate purposes.
