Note 13: Borrowings
Our short-term debt at the end of each period was as follows:
The 2009 debentures are convertible, subject to certain conditions. Holders can surrender the 2009 debentures for conversion if the closing price of Intel common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days during the 30 consecutive trading-day period ending on the last trading day of the preceding fiscal quarter.
During the third quarter of 2015, the closing stock price conversion right condition of the 2009 debentures was met and the debentures will be convertible at the option of the holders during the fourth quarter of 2015. As a result of the conversion period during the fourth quarter of 2015, the $1.1 billion carrying amount of the 2009 debentures remained classified as short-term debt on our consolidated condensed balance sheet as of September 26, 2015. The excess of the amount of cash payable if converted over the carrying amount of the 2009 debentures of $905 million remained classified as temporary equity on our consolidated condensed balance sheet as of September 26, 2015. In future periods, if the closing stock price conversion right condition is no longer met, all outstanding 2009 debentures would be reclassified to long-term debt and temporary equity would be reclassified to stockholders’ equity on our consolidated condensed balance sheet.
Our long-term debt at the end of each period was as follows:
During the third quarter of 2015, we issued a total of $8.0 billion aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes. In July of 2015, we issued an aggregate of $7.0 billion of principal amount of notes due in 2020, 2022, 2025, and 2045. In August of 2015, we issued $1.0 billion of principal amount of notes due in 2045. We will pay interest on these notes semi-annually. We may redeem the notes prior to their maturity at our option at specified redemption prices and subject to certain restrictions. The notes rank equally in right of payment with all of our other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness and will effectively rank junior to all liabilities of our subsidiaries.
We intend to use the net proceeds of these offerings to fund a portion of the cash consideration for our pending acquisition of Altera. If the Altera acquisition does not close for any reason, the net proceeds of the offering will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include refinancing of indebtedness, with the exception of the $2.25 billion principal amount of 2025 notes and $2.0 billion of principal amount of 2045 notes, which are subject to special mandatory redemption at a redemption price of 101% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest in the event that our acquisition of Altera is not consummated by, or the merger agreement is terminated before, December 31, 2016.
