Plantronics intends to use approximately $151 million of the net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, to repay all outstanding amounts under its senior credit facility. Pursuant to Plantronics's return of capital policy announced on March 4, Plantronics intends to use the remaining net proceeds from the offering for share repurchases and general corporate purposes.
