Pursuant to the terms of the 0.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2033 (the “Notes”) of Finisar Corporation (the “Company”) and the indenture governing the Notes, holders of all of the $258,750,000 outstanding principal amount of the Notes had an option to require the Company to repurchase on December 15, 2018 (the “Repurchase Date”) all or a portion of such holders’ Notes (the “Put Option”) at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of such Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the Repurchase Date.
The Put Option expired at the close of business on December 14, 2018. As of the expiration of the Put Option, the Company had received valid Put Option exercise notices from holders that required the Company to repurchase $257,696,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes.
