ELYRIA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Invacare Corporation (NYSE: IVC) announced today that it has determined that its 4.125% Convertible Senior Subordinated Debentures due 2027 (CUSIP No. 461203AD3) (the “Convertible Debentures”) have become convertible at the option of the holders beginning on July 1, 2011 and will remain convertible through September 30, 2011, as provided in the Indenture relating to the Convertible Debentures, dated as of February 12, 2007, between Invacare and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Trustee (the “Indenture”).

The Convertible Debentures are convertible because the closing price of Invacare’s common shares exceeded the conversion threshold price of $32.23 per share (130 percent of the applicable conversion price of $24.79 per share) for at least 20 trading days during the 30 consecutive trading days ending June 30, 2011. Accordingly, from July 1, 2011 until September 30, 2011, holders of the Convertible Debentures may elect to convert some or all of their Convertible Debentures as provided in the Indenture. Invacare may deliver common shares, cash or a combination of cash and common shares, as determined in Invacare’s discretion, in satisfaction of its obligations upon conversion of the Convertible Debentures.

Whether the Convertible Debentures will be convertible at any time after September 30, 2011 will depend on whether any of the conversion conditions specified in the Indenture are satisfied, including whether the price of Invacare’s common shares exceeds the conversion threshold price for the requisite number of trading days during subsequent quarters.
