Altera Corporation Closes $1 Billion Senior Notes Offering

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced the closing of its previously announced offering of $600 million aggregate principal amount of its 2.500% Senior Notes due 2018 and $400 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.100% Senior Notes due 2023 ("senior notes") under a shelf registration statement on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
