On January 9, 2007, UTStarcom, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company) entered into a First Supplemental Indenture (the First Supplemental Indenture) with U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the Trustee), which amends the Indenture entered into between the Company and the Trustee, dated as of March 12, 2003 (the Original Indenture, together with the First Supplemental Indenture, the Indenture), providing for the issuance of the Companys 7/8% Convertible Subordinated Notes due 2008 (CUSIP Nos. 918076AA8 and 918076AB6) (collectively, the Notes).
The First Supplemental Indenture was entered into upon the receipt of consents from holders of Notes (Holders) of a majority of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Notes in connection with the previously announced consent solicitation.
The First Supplemental Indenture provides that the Notes will accrue 6.75% per annum in special interest from January 9, 2007 to the maturity date of the Notes, unless earlier repurchased or converted. Payments of special interest will be made in addition to and at the same time and in the same manner as regularly scheduled payments of interest to Holders entitled to such regularly scheduled payments of interest.
The First Supplemental Indenture also provides that (i) any failure by the Company to comply with covenants contained in the Original Indenture related to the filing of reports required to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the SEC Reports) and the furnishing of copies of the SEC Reports and certain certificates of the Company to the Trustee before 5:30 p.m., New York City time, on May 31, 2007, shall not constitute a default under the Indenture, and that (ii) if as of 5:30 p.m., New York City time, on May 31, 2007 the Company has not filed the SEC Reports or furnished copies of the SEC Reports or certain certificates of the Company to the Trustee, any default that would be deemed to have occurred and remain uncured under the Original Indenture (without regard to the First Supplemental Indenture) shall be deemed to have occurred as of May 31, 2007. A copy of the First Supplemental Indenture is attached as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
