Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On April 29, 2019, Juniper Networks, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement (the “ASR Contract”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, to repurchase an aggregate of approximately $300 million of the Company’s outstanding common stock. Under the ASR Contract, the Company will make payments of approximately $300 million in the aggregate to JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association and will receive an initial delivery of approximately 8,589,835 shares of common stock in the aggregate from JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association. The exact number of shares the Company will repurchase under the ASR Contract will be based generally upon the average daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the repurchase period, less a discount and subject to adjustments pursuant to the terms and conditions of the ASR Contract. At settlement, under certain circumstances, JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association may be required to deliver additional shares of common stock to the Company, or under certain circumstances, the Company may be required either to deliver shares of common stock or to make a cash payment to JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association. Final settlement of the transactions under the ASR Contract is expected to occur no later than September 26, 2019. The terms of the accelerated share repurchase under the ASR Contract are subject to adjustment or termination if the Company were to enter into or announce certain types of transactions or to take certain corporate actions.

The ASR Contract contains the principal terms and provisions governing the accelerated share repurchase, including, but not limited to, the mechanism used to determine the number of shares of common stock that will be delivered, the required timing of delivery of the shares of common stock, the circumstances under which JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association is permitted to make adjustments to valuation and calculation periods or to terminate the ASR Contract and various acknowledgments, representations and warranties made by the Company, on the one hand and JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association on the other hand, to each other. From time to time, JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association and/or its affiliates have directly and indirectly engaged, and may engage in the future, in investment and/or commercial banking transactions with the Company for which they have received, or may receive, customary compensation, fees and expense reimbursement.

The foregoing description of the ASR Contract is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the ASR Contract, the forms of which will be filed in the Company’s Quarterly Report for the first quarter of 2019 on Form 10-Q.
