Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it will redeem all
of its outstanding 5.50 percent senior notes due September 2015 on July
14, 2014, the redemption date. This decision is consistent with
Agilent's intention to resize its debt portfolio in connection with the
expected spinoff of Keysight Technologies.
The redemption price is equal to the sum of the principal amount of the
notes outstanding-a make-whole premium that will be calculated three
business days prior to the redemption date in accordance with the
related indenture-and accrued and unpaid interest on the notes up to but
not including the redemption date. The aggregate principal amount of
notes currently outstanding is $500 million.
