CommScope, Inc. (NYSE: CTV) has priced its previously announced public offerings of senior subordinated convertible notes and common stock.

CommScope priced a public offering of $250 million aggregate principal amount of 3.25% Senior Subordinated Convertible Notes due 2015. The size of the offering was increased from the originally proposed $200 million offering. In connection with this offering, CommScope has granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional $37.5 million principal amount of the senior subordinated convertible notes on the same terms and conditions to cover over−allotments, if any. The senior subordinated convertible notes will pay interest semi−annually and will mature on July 1, 2015 unless earlier repurchased or converted. The senior subordinated convertible notes will be convertible at the holder’s option into shares of CommScope common stock at a conversion rate of 36.3636 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of senior subordinated convertible notes, equivalent to a conversion price of approximately $27.50 per share of common stock, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances.

CommScope also priced a public offering of 9.1 million shares of common stock at a public offering price of $22.00 per share, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $200 million. The number of shares offered was increased from the originally proposed eight million shares. In connection with this offering, CommScope has granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 1.365 million shares of common stock on the same terms and conditions to cover over−allotments, if any.

CommScope estimates that the net proceeds from the offerings will be approximately $433.8 (assuming no exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment options). CommScope intends to use $400 million of the net proceeds from the senior subordinated convertible notes offering and common stock offering to repay a portion of the amounts outstanding under CommScope’s senior secured credit facilities in conjunction with an amendment to the credit facilities. CommScope intends to use the remaining net proceeds from the offerings for general corporate purposes, including potentially paying down additional indebtedness under CommScope's credit facilities.

The offerings are expected to close on May 28, 2009, subject to customary closing conditions. The closing of each offering is not contingent on the closing of the other. J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., Merrill Lynch & Co. and Wachovia Capital Markets, LLC are acting as joint book−running managers for the senior subordinated convertible notes offering, and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., Merrill Lynch & Co. and UBS Securities LLC are acting as joint book−running managers for the common stock offering.
