PepsiCo Inc. on March 11 launched an offering of €1 billion senior notes, according to a prospectus filed the same day.
The soda giant is offering €500 million of its 0.750% senior notes due 2027 and €500 million of its 1.125% senior notes due 2031.
The company intends to pay interest annually starting March 18, 2020. The notes will be issued in minimum denominations of €100,000 and integral multiples of €1,000.
PepsiCo plans to list the euro-denominated notes on the Nasdaq Bond Exchange.
BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank AG's London branch and Merrill Lynch International are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering, while Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA, UBS AG's London branch, Barclays Bank PLC, ING Bank NV's Belgian branch, Société Générale and Samuel A.

The company said it has the option to redeem all of the notes in the event of certain changes in U.S. tax laws. The redemption price would be equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest.
The notes were rated A+ by S&P and A1 by Moody's, both with a stable outlook.
