The information set forth in this Item 7.01 is intended to be furnished under Item 7.01 of Form 8-K (Regulation FD Disclosure).

Micron Technology, Inc. is furnishing certain financial information regarding its business, including the following events that occurred subsequent to May 29, 2014:


·                  We prepaid a capital lease obligation of approximately $50 million that was due in quarterly installments through 2016.  The prepayment of this financing resulted in a reduction of (i) cash of $50 million, (ii) current debt of $23 million and (iii) long-term debt of $27 million.


·                  We repurchased approximately $28 million and $30 million in aggregate principal amount of our 2.375% convertible senior notes due 2032 and 3.125% convertible senior notes due 2032, respectively, for an aggregate price of approximately $197 million.  The repurchase of these notes resulted in reductions in (i) cash aggregating $197 million, (ii) long-term debt aggregating $49 million and (iii) total Micron shareholders’ equity aggregating $148 million.


·                  We entered into a capital lease obligation for approximately $79 million, resulting in increases in (i) current debt of $15 million and (ii) long-term debt of $64 million.


·                  We delivered an irrevocable notice to prepay $32 million aggregate principal amount in respect of a term loan, which payment is scheduled to be made on July 31, 2014.  The loan is due in semi-annual installments through 2018.


On July 23, 2014, we gave notice to holders of our outstanding 1.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2031 (the “2031B Notes”) that their notes will be redeemed on August 22, 2014, except to the extent such notes are converted or repurchased by us prior to such date.  Based on the current conversion rate of 105.2632 shares per $1,000 principal amount of the 2031B Notes and assuming for purposes of calculating the settlement value under the indenture for the 2031B Notes that the volume weighted average price of our common stock is $33.15 per share (the closing sales price of the our common stock on July 18, 2014) for each trading day of the applicable measurement period, if all of the 2031B Notes were converted prior to the redemption date for such notes, the aggregate amount the we would be required to pay with respect to such conversions if we elected to pay solely cash upon conversion, which is our current intent, would be approximately $402 million. Based on such assumptions, we expect to incur a non-operating loss of $28 million on the conversion and settlement of the 2031B Notes.


As used herein, “we,” “our,” “us” and similar terms included herein refer to Micron Technology, Inc. and its subsidiaries.


We are furnishing certain information regarding our business on Exhibit 99.1 to this report.


Item 8.01. Other Events.


On July 23, 2014, we issued a press release announcing that we propose to offer $750.0 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”).  We intend to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to extinguish our obligations with respect to our 2031B Notes, which may include payments in settlement of conversions of, or to repurchase or redeem, the 2031B Notes.  We expect to use the balance of the net proceeds for retirement of other convertible notes and debt and other general corporate purposes.  A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
