NXP Announces Senior Unsecured Notes Offering 
EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 --   NOT FOR
DISTRIBUTION IN ITALY -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI)
(together with its subsidiaries, "NXP") announced today that its
subsidiary NXP B.V., together with NXP Funding LLC, intends to offer
USD 500 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes
("Unsecured Notes") due 2021 pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S
under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities
Act"). The Unsecured Notes will be structurally subordinated to the
liabilities, including trade payables, of NXP's subsidiaries that
have not guaranteed the Unsecured Notes. In addition, the Unsecured
Notes will be effectively subordinated to all secured debt of the
issuers and the guarantors, to the extent of the value of the assets
securing such debt. NXP intends to use the net proceeds of the
offering with cash on hand to repay amounts outstanding under its
Term Loan A2 that it entered into on November 18, 2011, and thereby
decrease the amount of variable rate debt in its capital structure.
