AMD to issue $2.2 billion USD in Convertible Senior Notes

AMD is a company that has been strapped for cash lately. In late April, the Sunnyvale, CA based company announced that it would offer Convertible Senior Notes to raise around $2.2 billion USD. AMD set a conversion point of $42.12 USD per share at a time when its stock price was $14 USD.

The company's efforts to raise more cash have intensified even further. Yesterday, AMD priced an additional $1.5 billion USD in Convertible Senior Notes at a conversion point of $20.13 USD per share. The conversion price represents a 50 percent premium over AMD's $13.42 USD stock price at close of day on August 8.

AMD plans to use the funds received from the offering to pay an outstanding balance on a loan from Morgan Stanley Senior Funding in late 2006. The company borrowed around $2.5 billion USD in loans and $1.2 billion USD in common stock to fund the $5.4 billion purchase of ATI Technologies. The company also reported a net loss of $600 million USD last quarter while archrival Intel reported net income of $1.3 billion USD.

Not that i intend to go around censoring others, because i believe that only hearing oneself 'echo', dosen't make you more wise.

Nevertheless where are those 'Worth reading' and 'Not worth reading' buttons ?... is the threshold box ?... i putted 5 on your post, "change", refresh page, and nothing happened !?...
