Infrequent issuer Maxim Integrated Products today completed a $500 million offering of 3.375% notes due 2023 in line with price talk at T+145, or 3.509%. The issue printed on the tight side of the guidance in the T+150 area.
Proceeds will be used to repurchase shares of the company’s common stock and for general corporate purposes. At the end of the second quarter for fiscal 2013, the company had $435.6 million remaining under its $750 million share-buyback program. Additionally, Maxim will use cash on hand to redeem, repurchase, or repay, at maturity, all of its $300 million outstanding of 3.45% notes due June 14, according to filings.
