AMD Announces Private Offering of $400 Million of Senior Notes

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE: AMD) today announced that it intends to commence a private offering, subject to market and other conditions, of $400 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2024. AMD intends to use the net proceeds received in the offering (the "Net Proceeds") to repurchase its outstanding 8.125% Senior Notes due 2017 (the "8.125% Notes") through a tender offer which also launched today, June 2, 2014 (the "8.125% Tender Offer"). AMD intends to use the Net Proceeds to fund the purchase of all 8.125% Notes that are early tendered (the "Early Tender") in accordance with the terms of the 8.125% Tender Offer.

To the extent AMD still has 8.125% Notes outstanding following settlement of the Early Tender, prior to or following the expiration of the 8.125% Tender Offer, AMD intends to use the remaining Net Proceeds to redeem any and all remaining outstanding 8.125% Notes. To the extent the remaining Net Proceeds are not enough to redeem the then outstanding 8.125% Notes, AMD intends to use cash on hand, including the remaining net proceeds from its February 2014 offering of its 6.75% Senior Notes due 2019, if required, to fund the redemption of any such 8.125% Notes. To the extent AMD has remaining Net Proceeds after the completion of the 8.125% Notes Tender Offer and any redemption of 8.125% Notes, AMD will use such remaining Net Proceeds to redeem, repurchase or otherwise retire other outstanding indebtedness.

The new senior notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or applicable state securities laws, and will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A and in offshore transactions pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Unless so registered, the new senior notes may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
