NOTE N: SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
On March 11, 2005, we called for the full redemption of our outstanding $1.37 billion aggregate in principal of our 5.75 percent senior convertible notes (the Notes) due March 15, 2009. The redemption will be completed by March 31, 2005. Note holders will have the option to receive cash at a redemption price equal to 102.46 percent of the principal amount of the Note, plus accrued interest excluding the redemption date, for a total of approximately $1,027 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes. Alternatively, note holders may elect to convert their Notes into approximately 62.03 shares of Gap Inc. common stock per $1,000 principal amount, at a conversion price equal to $16.12 per share. The Notes, if fully converted, would be converted into 85,173,263 shares of Gap Inc. common stock. Cash will be paid in lieu of fractional shares. The right to convert the Notes into shares of Gap Inc. common stock will expire at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on March 30, 2005. Subsequent to that time, no further conversions of the Notes can be made. We expect nearly all our Notes to convert to equity, with minimal cash required to retire these Notes.
