NXP Announces Launch of Senior Unsecured Notes Offering 
EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/13 --   NOT FOR
DISTRIBUTION IN ITALY -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI)
(together with its subsidiaries, "NXP") announced today that its
subsidiaries NXP B.V. and NXP Funding LLC intend to offer USD 500
million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2018
("Unsecured Notes") 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 to
repay amounts outstanding under its U.S. dollar denominated floating
rate senior secured notes due 2016, and thereby decrease the amount
of variable rate debt in its capital structure.
