Infinera Announces Proposed $100 Million Offering

The convertible senior notes will be due in 2018. Infinera expects to use the net proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes, including working capital and potential strategic projects
InP PIC provider Infinera Corporation is intending to offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $100 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers.

Infinera also expects to grant the initial purchasers of the notes a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $15 million aggregate principal amount of the notes to cover over-allotments.

The notes will be unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of Infinera, and interest will be payable semi-annually. Prior to December 1st, 2017, the notes will be convertible at the option of the noteholders only upon the occurrence of specified events; thereafter until maturity the notes will be convertible at the option of the noteholders at any time.

Upon conversion, the notes will be settled in cash, shares of Infinera's common stock or any combination thereof at Infinera's option. Final terms of the notes, including the interest rate, initial conversion rate and other terms, will be determined by negotiations between Infinera and the initial purchasers of the notes.

The notes will be offered to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the act.

Neither the notes nor the shares of Infinera's common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes have been registered under the Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
