Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure
In a press release (the “Release”) issued on June 12, 2006, Symantec Corporation (the “Company”) announced that it expects to use a portion of the net proceeds from an offering of convertible senior notes to repurchase approximately $1.5 billion worth of its common stock. The Company anticipates that a substantial portion of this repurchase will be completed concurrently with the offering, and the remainder will be executed during the September quarter. This repurchase amount is in addition to repurchases under the Company’s previously announced repurchase program, under which approximately $710 million remained authorized as of May 31, 2006.
In connection with the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions described in the Release, affiliates of the initial purchasers that are a party to those transactions have advised the Company that they will purchase the Company’s common stock in secondary market transactions prior to or following pricing of the notes, and may enter into various over-the-counter derivative transactions with respect to the Company’s common stock concurrently with or following pricing of the notes.
In addition to its issuance of the notes, the Company has entered into a commitment letter with lenders regarding the establishment of a credit facility with an anticipated borrowing capacity of $1.0 billion. While the Company has no current plan to borrow funds under such credit facility, its availability would allow the Company immediate access to domestic funds if it identifies opportunities for its use.
Item 8.01. Other Events
In a press release issued on June 12, 2006, the Company announced that it intends to offer convertible senior notes in a private offering, subject to market conditions and other factors. A copy of the press release is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.01 and is incorporated herein by reference.
