CommScope, Inc. (NYSE:CTV) has issued a conversion termination notice to holders of its 3.50% Convertible Senior Subordinated Debentures due 2024.

Under the Indenture relating to the 3.50% Debentures, CommScope is entitled to issue a conversion termination notice if the closing sale price (as defined in the Indenture) of CommScope’s common stock has exceeded 150% of the conversion price relating to the 3.50% Debentures for 20 trading days out of a 30 consecutive day trading period. As a result of the issuance of the conversion termination notice, holders may convert their 3.50% Debentures at any time on or prior to June 18, 2009.

After June 18, 2009, the 3.50% Debentures will no longer be convertible into common stock of CommScope. Holders electing to convert their 3.50% Debentures on or before June 18, 2009 will receive, in addition to shares of CommScope’s common stock issued at the conversion rate, a coupon make-whole payment in accordance with the terms of the Indenture. As is permitted by the Indenture, CommScope has elected to make the coupon make-whole payments in shares of common stock of CommScope. As required by the Indenture, CommScope has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a prospectus supplement relating to its effective shelf registration statement registering the resale of the 3.50% Debentures and the shares of CommScope’s common stock issuable upon conversion and in connection with the coupon make-whole payment.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any 3.50% Debentures or common stock, nor may there be any sale of 3.50% Debentures or common stock in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
