"We have enhanced our capital structure by significantly reducing our convertible note exposure over the last several years while minimizing shareholder dilution," said Kevin Waters, Chief Financial Officer. "In addition, our total debt has declined $58 million or 27% during the past three years."

3.50% convertible senior notes

Accuray successfully entered into exchange agreements with the holders of the 3.50% convertible senior notes allowing the Company to settle the $13 million outstanding principal amount and accrued interest in cash and approximately 0.3 million shares of its common stock.  After giving effect to the settlement of the exchange agreements, no 3.50% convertible senior notes will remain outstanding.

If Accuray had not entered into the exchange agreements and the holders of the 3.50% convertible senior notes had converted all their notes, Accuray would have issued approximately 2.4 million shares of its common stock.

3.50% Series A convertible senior notes

Accuray retired its 3.50% Series A convertible senior notes substantially all in cash, paying approximately $27.0 million to holders.  After giving effect to this settlement, no 3.50% Series A convertible senior notes remain outstanding.

Accuray had approximately $106 million of cash, cash equivalents, investments and short-term restricted cash at December 31, 2017.
