Both the 2017 and 2021 Notes offer noteholders the right to convert during the period beginning
35 trading days prior to the anticipated closing date of certain merger transactions, include the Valtech transaction, and ending 35 trading days following the actual closing date.
We may not redeem the 2021 Notes prior to June 19, 2019. On or after June 19, 2019, we may redeem for cash all or part of the 2021
Notes if the last reported sale price per share of our common stock for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during the period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on the trading day immediately preceding the date on which we
provide the notice of redemption exceeds 130% of the applicable conversion price for the 2021 Notes on each applicable trading day. The redemption price will equal 100% of the principal amount of the 2021 Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and
unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. No sinking fund is provided for the 2021 Notes.
If we undergo a fundamental
change, as defined in the Indenture among the Company and Wilmington Trust, N.A., holders may require us to repurchase for cash all or part of their 2021 Notes at a fundamental change repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the
2021 Notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the fundamental change repurchase date. The fundamental change is primarily triggered by a change of control, liquidation, dissolution or delisting from NASDAQ.
The 2021 Notes are senior unsecured obligations and rank senior in right of payment to our future indebtedness that is expressly subordinated
in right of payment to the 2021 Notes; equal in right of payment to our existing and future unsecured indebtedness that is not subordinated; effectively subordinated in right of payment to any of our secured indebtedness to the extent of the value
of the assets securing such indebtedness; and structurally subordinated to all existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities of our subsidiaries.
The 2021 Notes will be convertible at an initial conversion rate of 10 shares of our common stock per $1,000 principal amount of 2021 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.
In accordance with FASB ASC 470-20, Debt with Conversion and Other Options, which applies to certain convertible debt instruments that
may be settled in cash or other assets, or partially in cash, upon conversion, we recorded the long-term debt and equity components on our 2021 Notes separately on the issuance date. The amount recorded for long-term debt was determined by measuring
the fair value of a similar liability that does not have an associated equity component. The equity component of $47.4 million was recorded in additional paid-in-capital. The measurement of fair value required the Company to make estimates and
assumptions to determine the present value of the cash flows of the 2021 Notes, absent the conversion feature. This treatment increased interest expense associated with our 2021 Notes by adding a non-cash component to interest expense in the form of
amortization of a debt discount calculated based on the difference between the 1.75% cash coupon rate and the effective interest rate on debt borrowing of approximately 7.2%. The discount is being amortized to interest expense through the
December 15, 2021 maturity date of the 2021 Notes using the effective interest method. Additionally, we allocated the costs related to issuance of the 2021 Notes on the same percentage as the long-term debt and equity components, such that a
portion of the costs is allocated to the long-term debt component and the equity component included in additional paid-in capital. The portion of the costs allocated to the long-term debt component is presented as deferred financing costs, net on
our condensed consolidated balance sheets. These deferred financing costs are also being amortized to interest expense through the December 15, 2021 maturity date of the 2021 Notes using the effective interest method.
Based on the initial conversion rate of 10 shares of our common stock per $1,000 principal amount of 2021 Notes, which corresponds to an
initial conversion price of $100.00 per share of our common stock, the number of shares issuable upon conversion of the 2021 Notes is 2,023,660. The value of these shares, based on the closing price of our common stock on September 30, 2015 of
$52.31 per share, was approximately $105.9 million. The fair value of our 2021 Notes as presented in Note 4 was $179.9 million at September 30, 2015.
