Form 8-K for AKAMAI TECHNOLOGIES INC

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financia


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Convertible Note Offering

On February 20, 2014, Akamai Technologies, Inc. ("Akamai") completed its previously announced offering of $600.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 (the "Notes"). The Notes were sold in a private placement under a purchase agreement, dated as of February 13, 2014, entered into by and between Akamai and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as representative of the several initial purchasers named therein (collectively, the "Initial Purchasers"), for resale to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").

Akamai used approximately $20.3 million of the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to pay the cost of the privately-negotiated convertible note hedge transactions described below (after such cost was partially offset by the proceeds to Akamai from the sale of warrants pursuant to the warrant transactions described below), and used approximately $62.0 million of the net proceeds to repurchase 1,038,352 shares of Akamai's common stock, as described below in Item 8.01.

Akamai also granted the Initial Purchasers an over-allotment option to purchase an additional $90.0 million aggregate principal amount of Notes on the same terms and conditions, which the Initial Purchasers exercised in full on February 14, 2014 and which additional purchase was also completed on February 20, 2014.

Akamai intends to use the remaining net proceeds from the offering for working capital and other general corporate purposes, as well as potential acquisitions and strategic transactions.

Indenture

On February 20, 2014, Akamai entered into an indenture (the "Indenture") with respect to the Notes with U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"). Under the Indenture, the Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Akamai, the Notes will not bear regular interest, and the principal amount of the Notes will not accrete. The Notes will mature on February 15, 2019, unless previously purchased or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.

The Notes are convertible into shares of Akamai's common stock at an initial conversion rate of 11.1651 shares per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $89.56 per share), subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events. The initial conversion price represents a premium of approximately 50% to the $59.71 per share closing price of Akamai's common stock on February 13, 2014. Upon conversion of the Notes, holders will receive cash or shares of Akamai's common stock or a combination thereof, at Akamai's election.


Prior to August 15, 2018, the Notes will be convertible only upon the occurrence of certain events, and will be convertible thereafter at any time until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date of the Notes.

The conversion rate is subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. If certain corporate events described in the Indenture occur prior to the maturity date, the conversion rate will be increased for a holder who elects to convert its Notes in connection with such corporate event in certain circumstances.

The Notes are not redeemable prior to maturity, and no sinking fund is provided for the Notes. If Akamai undergoes a "fundamental change," as defined in the Indenture, subject to certain conditions, holders may require Akamai to purchase for cash all or any portion of their Notes. The fundamental change purchase price will be 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be purchased plus any accrued and unpaid special interest up to but excluding the fundamental change purchase date.

The Indenture contains customary terms and covenants, including that upon certain events of default occurring and continuing, either the Trustee or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may declare 100% of the principal of, and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on, all the Notes to be due and payable.

The above description of the Indenture and the Notes is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Indenture (and the Form of Note included therein), which is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Convertible Note Hedge Transactions and Warrant Transactions

On February 13, 2014, Akamai entered into convertible note hedge transactions and warrant transactions with the initial purchasers of the Notes or their respective affiliates (the "Option Counterparties"). In connection with the exercise in full by the initial purchasers of their option to purchase up to an additional $90.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, on February 14, 2014 Akamai entered into additional convertible note hedge transactions and additional warrant transactions with the Option Counterparties.

The convertible note hedge transactions, including the additional convertible note hedge transactions, are expected to reduce the potential dilution with respect to shares of the Akamai's common stock upon any conversion of the Notes and/or offset any cash payments Akamai is required to make in excess of the principal amount of the converted Notes, as the case may be. The warrant transactions, including the additional warrant transactions, will have a . . .



Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.



Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

The Notes were sold to the Initial Purchasers in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act for resale to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A of the Securities Act. Akamai does not intend to file a shelf registration statement for the resale of the Notes or any common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes. The warrants were sold to the Option Counterparties in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. Additional information pertaining to the Notes, the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes and the warrants is contained in Item 1.01 of this report and is incorporated herein by reference.



Item 8.01. Other Events.

In connection with the sale of the Notes, Akamai used approximately $62.0 million of the net proceeds of such sale to repurchase 1,038,352 shares of its common stock from purchasers of Notes in privately-negotiated transactions effected through one of the Initial Purchasers or its affiliate, as Akamai's agent. The purchase price of the common stock repurchased in such transactions was equal to the closing price per share of Akamai's common stock on the date of the pricing of the offering, which was $59.71 per share.



Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
