SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2017-- JAKKS Pacific, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAKK) is pleased to announce the Company has completed the previously announced transaction with Oasis to exchange $21.55 million face amount of 4.25% Convertible Senior Notes due in 2018 for a new Convertible Senior Note due 2020 which would extend the maturity date to November 2020 and reduce the interest rate to 3.25%, if paid in cash.
