NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies said last night that it has priced two series of senior notes offerings with an aggregate principal amount of $750 million.
The first series of $250 million in 2.5 percent notes will mature in July 2013. The second series of $500 million in 5 percent notes will mature in July 2020.
Agilent expects to close the offering on July 20.
The firm will use the proceeds to satisfy, in part, the financing obligation of Agilent Technologies World Trade, the subsidiary that acquired Varian for $1.5 billion in May.
