CNA Financial prices notes offering

CNA Financial Corp. priced $500 million aggregate principal amount of 3.450% senior notes due Aug. 15, 2027, in a public offering.

The notes are being offered at 99.773% of the principal amount with a yield to maturity of 3.477%. The offering is expected to close Aug. 10.

The company expects from the offering net proceeds of approximately $495 million, after deducting the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses.

Pending such uses, the net proceeds may be invested in short-term, interest-bearing securities.

Barclays and Wells Fargo Securities are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.
