Item 1.01     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

On May 2, 2006, Axcelis Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an exchange and purchase agreement pursuant to which Quantum Partners LDC (“Quantum”), the holder of an aggregate of approximately $50.8 million of the Company’s existing 4.25% Convertible Subordinated Notes due January 15, 2007 (the “Old Notes”), agreed to exchange its Old Notes for $50.8 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s newly issued 4.25% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due January 15, 2009 (the “New Notes”), plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Old Notes through but excluding May 2, 2006, the closing date of the exchange. In addition, the Company issued an additional $24.2 million of New Notes, resulting in an aggregate of $75 million of New Notes outstanding.

 

Following the execution of the exchange and purchase agreement, on May 2, 2006 the Company issued the New Notes pursuant to an indenture, dated as of May 2, 2006, between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, a copy of which (including the form of New Note) is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01. The Company also paid an aggregate of approximately $641 thousand in accrued and unpaid interest on the Old Notes that were exchanged for New Notes. Following the completion of the exchange, approximately $74.2 million in aggregate principal amount of Old Notes remains outstanding.

 

The New Notes are unsecured senior indebtedness of the Company and bear interest at the rate of 4.25% per annum. Interest is payable on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing July 15, 2006. The New Notes mature on January 15, 2009. At maturity, the Company is required to repay the outstanding principal of the New Notes, plus a maturity premium of 11.125% of such principal, resulting in an effective annual yield to maturity of approximately 8.0%.

 

The terms of the indenture restrict the Company’s ability to incur any new indebtedness senior to or pari passu with the New Notes, or for any of its subsidiaries to incur any new indebtedness without becoming a guarantor of the New Notes, in each case subject to a number of exceptions and qualifications.

 

The principal amount of the New Notes, together with the Applicable Premium (as defined in the indenture), which increases over the term of the notes in accordance with the schedule below, as of the conversion date, are convertible at the option of the holder, at any time on or prior to maturity, into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to $20.00 per share, which also is the conversion price of the Old Notes, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances.

At any time prior to maturity, the Company may redeem the New Notes in whole or in part at the Repurchase Value (as defined in the indenture), which increases over the term of the notes in accordance with the schedule below, as of the redemption date (plus any and all accrued and unpaid interest):

The Repurchase Value increases over time between the dates specified above as set forth in the indenture.

 

If a Fundamental Change (as defined in the indenture) occurs at any time prior to maturity, the holder of the New Notes may require the Company to redeem all or a portion of the New Notes for cash at the Repurchase Value as of the redemption date, plus any and all accrued and unpaid interest.

 

If there is an event of default on the New Notes, the principal amount of the New Notes, the Applicable Premium thereon and accrued interest may be declared immediately due and payable, subject to certain conditions set forth in the indenture. These amounts automatically become due and payable in the case of certain types of bankruptcy or insolvency events involving the Company. The following are events of default under the New Notes:

 

           the Company fails to pay any interest on the New Notes when due and such failure continues for a period of 30 days;

 

           the Company fails to pay principal, premium or Repurchase Value when due at maturity, upon redemption or otherwise on the notes;

 

           the Company fails to perform or observe any of the covenants in the indenture for 60 days after notice;

 

           specified events involving the Company’s bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization. and

 

           default under certain other indebtedness of the Company if that default results in acceleration of such other indebtedness.

 

Also on May 2, 2006, in connection with the issuance of the New Notes, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with Quantum, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01. Pursuant to the terms of the registration rights agreement, the Company agreed to file on or before 90 days after May 2, 2006, and to use its reasonable best efforts to cause to become effective on or before 180 days after May 2, 2006, a shelf registration statement covering resales of the New Notes and the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the New Notes. If the Company fails to satisfy certain filing and other obligations with respect to the shelf registration statement, including failing to file within 90 days or to cause the shelf registration statement to be declared effective within 180 days, then the Company will be obligated to make additional payments on the New Notes at the rate of 0.50% per annum.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the indenture and the registration rights agreement are only summaries and are qualified in their entirety by the full text of the indenture and the registration rights agreement, which are incorporated by reference herein.
