PDL BioPharma Provides Clarification Regarding Redemption of Its 2.75% Convertible Subordinated Notes

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (Nasdaq: PDLI) affirmed that on September 15, 2010 it will redeem all of the Company's outstanding 2.75% Convertible Subordinated Notes, due August 16, 2023 (the "2023 Notes"). Holders of the 2023 Notes have been provided notice of the redemption by the trustee for the Notes.  

Those 2023 Note holders who elect to convert their 2023 Notes into the Company's common stock on or before September 14, 2010, rather than have their 2023 Notes redeemed, will be stockholders of record for the Company's October 1, 2010 dividend payment of $0.50 per share of common stock. Such 2023 Note holders will receive the dividend even though they will have converted their notes after the ex-dividend date of September 13, 2010. The conversion rate for the 2023 Notes is 177.1594 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount or $5.64 per share.
