SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that, over the last month, it has purchased $5.4 million of its convertible notes due November 2017 at a discount in the open market. The discount on the notes, along with the associated interest savings, resulted in a 6.625 percent yield to the company. This represents a gain in excess of 350 basis points relative to Quantum's cost of capital under its $80 million revolving credit facility with PNC Bank.
"We saw this as a good opportunity to repay a portion of our convertible notes on favorable terms," said Fuad Ahmad, senior vice president and CFO of Quantum. "If the remaining $64.6 million of convertible notes does not convert prior to the November 2017 due date, we plan to repay them using a combination of cash, the PNC credit facility and the $20 million delayed draw term loan we have with TCW Direct Lending."
