Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial


Item 2.04. Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial
Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.
The information set forth in Item 8.01 is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
The information set forth in Item 8.01 is incorporated herein by reference. The issuances of common stock upon the conversions described in Item 8.01 below are exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) thereof, as securities exchanged with our existing noteholders.
Item 8.01. Other Events.
On May 17, 2013, we called for redemption $400.0 million in aggregate principal amount of our 3.35% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due 2015, or 2015 Notes. We elected to redeem the 2015 Notes pursuant to a provisional redemption provision in the governing indenture that permitted us to redeem the 2015 Notes if the closing price of our common stock exceeded $63.47 for at least 20 trading days within a period of 30 consecutive trading days. On June 17, 2013, or the Redemption Date, we will pay a redemption price equal to 100% of the then outstanding principal amount of the 2015 Notes, plus a make-whole interest payment, payable in shares of our common stock, of $16.75 per $1,000 in principal amount of 2015 Notes, to the holders of any 2015 Notes that remain outstanding on the Redemption Date. We will pay the redemption price for any outstanding 2015 Notes from existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities.
At any time prior to the close of business on June 14, 2013, holders of 2015 Notes may convert 2015 Notes into our common stock at a conversion rate of 20.4794 shares per $1,000 principal amount of 2015 Notes (or approximately $48.83 per share), plus a make-whole interest payment, payable in shares of our common stock, of $16.75 per $1,000 in principal amount of 2015 Notes, in accordance with the terms of the governing indenture.
The number of shares of our common stock per $1,000 in principal amount of 2015 Notes deliverable for the make-whole interest payments is equal to $16.75 divided by 98% of the 5-day volume-weighted average price of a share of our common stock over the period from May 20, 2013 through May 24, 2013. The aggregate number of shares that we will issue, if all the currently outstanding 2015 Notes are converted into common stock, is approximately 8.3 million shares. This description is only a summary of certain provisions of the 2015 Notes and the indenture. A complete explanation of the conversion rights of holders of the 2015 Notes, as well as the procedures required to convert the 2015 Notes, is set forth in the indenture. All holders are urged to review the conversion provisions contained in the 2015 Notes and the indenture in their entirety.
