Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On May 22, 2013, SunPower Corporation ("SunPower") issued a press release announcing the pricing of its private offering of $300 million principal amount of 0.75% senior convertible debentures due 2018 (the "Debentures"). $100 million in aggregate principal amount of the Debentures will be sold to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Securities Act"), and the remaining $200 million in aggregate principal amount of the Debentures will be sold to Total Gas & Power USA, SAS, a subsidiary of Total S.A. which owns approximately 65% of SunPower's outstanding common stock and which is an institutional accredited investor pursuant to Regulation D under the Securities Act.

The Debentures will pay interest semi-annually on June 1 and December 1 of each year, beginning on December 1, 2013, at a rate of 0.75% per annum, and will mature on June 1, 2018. The Debentures will be convertible into shares of SunPower's common stock at any time based on an initial conversion rate of 40.0871 shares of common stock per $1,000 aggregate principal amount of Debentures (which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $24.95 per share of SunPower's common stock), representing a conversion premium of approximately 30% over the closing sale price of $19.19 per share of SunPower's common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on May 22, 2013. The conversion rate (and the conversion price) will be subject to adjustment in certain circumstances.

The sale of the Debentures is expected to close on May 29, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.

SunPower intends to use the proceeds from the offering of the Debentures for general corporate purposes, which may include redeeming or repurchasing some of SunPower's outstanding debentures and working capital.

The full text of the press release is being furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information set forth in Item 7.01 of this report and in the press release is deemed to be "furnished" and shall not be deemed to be "filed" for purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
