Xilinx To Redeem Outstanding Junior Subordinated Convertible Debentures Due 2037

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced that it has issued a notice of redemption to redeem on March 17, 2014 all of its outstanding 3.125% Junior Convertible Subordinated Debentures due 2037 (the "Convertible Debentures").  As of February 7, 2014, $689,635,000 of the Convertible Debentures was outstanding. The last reported sale price of Xilinx's common stock on February 7, 2014 was $46.10 per share.


The notice of redemption provides that the Convertible Debentures called for redemption would be redeemed at a stated redemption price equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of such notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to (but not including) the redemption date.

Holders may convert the Convertible Debentures at any time prior to the close of business on March 14, 2014 at a conversion rate of 34.6593 shares of Xilinx's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Debentures (which is equivalent to a conversion price of approximately $28.8523 per share) with a related Observation Period (as defined in the Indenture for the Convertible Debentures) of February 12, 2014 through March 12, 2014.

In the event that holders elect to convert their Notes in connection with the redemption, the Company will satisfy its conversion obligations to holders by paying cash equal to the principal amount of the Notes. Xilinx has elected to settle any and all conversion obligations in excess of the principal amount in cash.

Xilinx may consider engaging in new debt financing if available on terms attractive to Xilinx to fund the redemption price, or any conversion obligation for Convertible Debentures converted prior to the close of business on March 14, 2014, or fund the amounts with existing cash.
