Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 14, 2014, NVIDIA Corporation (“NVIDIA”) entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement (the “ASR Agreement”) with Goldman, Sachs & Co. (“Goldman”). NVIDIA will acquire the shares under the ASR Agreement as part of its previously announced intention to return $1 billion to shareholders in the current fiscal year.
Pursuant to the terms of the ASR Agreement, on February 20, 2014, NVIDIA will make an upfront payment of $500 million to Goldman and will receive an initial delivery of 20,583,226 shares of NVIDIA common stock from Goldman. At settlement, Goldman may be required to deliver additional shares of common stock to NVIDIA, or, under certain circumstances, NVIDIA may be required to deliver shares of its common stock or may elect to make a cash payment to Goldman, based generally on the average of the daily volume-weighted average prices of NVIDIA common stock during the term of the ASR Agreement. The ASR Agreement contains provisions customary for agreements of this type, including provisions for adjustments to the transaction terms, the circumstances generally under which the ASR Agreement may be accelerated, extended or terminated early by Goldman and various acknowledgements, representations and warranties made by the parties to one another. Final settlement of the ASR Agreement is expected to be completed by the end of July 2014, although the settlement may be accelerated at Goldman’s option.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
