July 10, 2018

GREENSBORO, N.C., July 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today announced the pricing of its offering of $500 million principal amount of its senior notes maturing in 2026 (the “Notes”). The offering was upsized from a previously announced amount of $300 million. The Notes will pay interest semi-annually at a rate of 5.50%. The Notes will mature on July 15, 2026, unless earlier redeemed in accordance with their terms. Qorvo expects to close the sale of the Notes on or about July 16, 2018, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

The Notes will be issued to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain non-U.S. 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, any and all of its 6.75% senior notes due 2023 tendered after the early tender date and prior to the expiration date and up to $300 million of its 7.00% senior notes due 2025, 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 U.S. 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 United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
