Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On February 27, 2007, Magma Design Automation, Inc. (Magma) entered into separate exchange agreements with certain holders of its existing Zero Coupon Convertible Subordinated Notes due May 15, 2008 (the Old Notes), pursuant to which holders of approximately $47.4 million in aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes agreed to exchange their Old Notes for approximately $47.4 million in aggregate principal amount of a new series of notes, the 2.00 percent Convertible Senior Notes due May 15, 2010 (the New Notes). After the satisfaction of closing conditions and subsequent completion of the exchange, approximately $17.7 million in aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes will remain outstanding.
The New Notes compare to the Old Notes as follows:
In addition, the New Notes will contain a net share settlement provision which allows Magma at its option, in lieu of delivery of some or all of the shares of common stock otherwise issuable upon conversion of the New Notes, to pay holders of the New Notes in cash for all or a portion of the principal amount of the converted New Notes and any amounts in excess of the principal amount which are due.
Further, after May 20, 2009, Magma will have the option to redeem the New Notes for cash in an amount equal to 100 percent of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding New Notes at the time of such redemption.
In connection with the exchange, Magma will enter into a registration rights agreement with the holders of the New Notes. Pursuant to the registration rights agreement, Magma will agree to file a shelf registration statement with respect to the resale of the New Notes and the Magma common stock issuable upon conversion thereof. In the event that Magma fails to comply with its obligations under the registration rights agreement, Magma will be obligated to make additional payments to the holders of the New Notes.
