The information set forth in Item 8.01 is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 8.01.
Other Events.
As previously reported, on February 15, 2018, VeriSign, Inc. (the “Company”) called for redemption all of its outstanding 3.25% Junior Subordinated Convertible Debentures due 2037 (the “Notes”), which were issued pursuant to an Indenture dated as of August 20, 2007 (the “Indenture”), between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, as Trustee, Paying Agent and Conversion Agent.
Upon issuance of the redemption notice, the Notes became convertible at any time before 5:00 p.m. New York City time on Monday, April 30, 2018 (the “Conversion Deadline”), the business day immediately preceding May 1, 2018 (the “Redemption Date”). The Company elected Net Share Settlement (as defined in the Indenture) with respect to conversions occurring after the date of the redemption notice and prior to the Conversion Deadline.
The Company received valid conversion notices from holders of $1,249,773,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes prior to the Conversion Deadline. In accordance with the Indenture, the Company settled such conversions on May 1, 2018 by the payment of an aggregate of $1,249,782,048.12 in cash and the issuance of 26,079,549 shares of the Company’s common stock.
Also on May 1, 2018, the Company redeemed all $226,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes that remained outstanding after the conversions. The applicable redemption price was an amount in cash equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued but unpaid interest up to, but not including, May 1, 2018.
The common stock issued upon the conversion of the Notes was issued in reliance upon the exemption from the registration requirement of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, provided for in Section 3(a)(9) thereof.
