The tiremaker will deliver shares of its common stock upon conversion of any notes surrendered prior to Mar. 31. Cash will be paid in lieu of fractional shares only. Issued in June 2004, the notes are currently convertible at a rate of 83.0703 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equal to a conversion price of $12.04 per share. There is currently $350 million in aggregate principal amount of notes outstanding.

If all outstanding notes are surrendered for conversion, the aggregate number of shares of common stock issued would be approximately 29 million, Goodyear said.
