(NYSE: AMD) today announced its intention to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $1.5 billion aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. AMD expects to grant to the initial purchaser a 30-day option to purchase up to $225 million aggregate principal amount of additional notes to cover over allotments.
