Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has priced its offering of $500m of its senior notes maturing in 2026. The offering has been upsized from the $300m announced on 10 July.

The notes will pay interest semi-annually at a rate of 5.50%. They will mature on 15 July 2026, unless earlier redeemed in accordance with their terms. Qorvo expects to close the sale of the notes on or about 16 July, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The notes will be issued to qualified institutional buyers and to certain non-US persons (in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act).

Qorvo expects to use the net proceeds of the offering to purchase, in connection with its recently announced tender offers, its 6.75% senior notes due 2023 (tendered after the early tender date and prior to the expiration date) and up to $300m of its 7.00% senior notes due 2025 (increased from the $150m announced on 10 July), to pay related fees and expenses of the offering and the tender offers, and for general corporate purposes.

The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Qorvo and will be initially guaranteed, jointly and severally, by each of Qorvo’s existing and future direct and indirect wholly owned US subsidiaries that guarantee Qorvo’s obligations under its existing credit facility.

The notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the USA absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
