3.5% Convertible Senior Notes

On December 15, 2010, we completed the sale of 3.5% convertible senior notes due December 15, 2017, unless earlier repurchased by us or converted (the “2017 Notes”) for an aggregate principal amount of $143.75 million pursuant to the terms of an Indenture dated December 15, 2010 (the “Indenture”). The 2017 Notes are the senior unsecured obligations of the Company. The 2017 Notes bear interest at a rate of 3.5% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year.

In May 2015, we entered into separate, privately negotiated, exchange agreements (the “Exchange”) with certain holders of our outstanding 2017 Notes. Pursuant to these agreements, we exchanged $101.3 million aggregate principal amount of the 2017 Notes for $118.2 million principal amount of 1.75% convertible senior notes due 2021 (see further discussion below). We did not receive any proceeds related to the Exchange.

The 2017 Notes offering was completed pursuant to a prospectus supplement, dated December 9, 2010, to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 that was previously filed with the SEC and which was declared effective on December 9, 2010.

The 2017 Notes will be convertible at an initial conversion rate of 10 shares of our common stock per $1,000 principal amount of 2017 Notes, which corresponds to an initial conversion price of $100.00 per share of our common stock. The conversion rate is subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events.

Prior to June 15, 2017, holders may convert their 2017 Notes at their option only upon satisfaction of one or more of the conditions specified in the Indenture relating to the (i) sale price of our common stock, (ii) the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of 2017 Notes or (iii) specified corporate events. As of the date of this report on Form 10-Q, none of the events that would allow holders to convert their 2017 Notes have occurred. On or after June 15, 2017, until the close of business of the business day immediately preceding the date the 2017 Notes mature, holders may convert their 2017 Notes at any time, regardless of whether any of the foregoing conditions have been met. Upon conversion, we will pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of our common stock or a combination thereof, at our election.

We may not redeem the 2017 Notes prior to maturity. Holders of the 2017 Notes may require us to purchase for cash all or a part of their 2017 Notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2017 Notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, upon the occurrence of certain fundamental changes (as defined in the Indenture) involving the Company. The Indenture does not contain any financial or operating covenants or restrictions on the payment of dividends, the incurrence of indebtedness or the issuance or repurchase of securities by us or any of our subsidiaries.

The Indenture contains customary terms and nonfinancial covenants and defines events of default. If an event of default (other than certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization) involving the Company occurs and is continuing, the Trustee (by notice to the Company) or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the outstanding 2017 Notes (by notice to the Company and the Trustee) may declare 100% of the principal of and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on all the 2017 Notes to be due and payable. In case of certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization, involving the Company, 100% of the principal of and accrued and unpaid interest on the 2017 Notes will automatically become due and payable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indenture provides that, to the extent we elect, the sole remedy for an event of default relating to certain failures by us to comply with certain reporting covenants in the Indenture consists exclusively of the right to receive additional interest on the 2017 Notes.
