PepsiCo launches USD2bn two-part bond

NEW YORK, Feb 25 (IFR) - PepsiCo on Tuesday launched a USD2bn two-part bond after the food and beverage giant gave up plans for a third floating-rate tranche of the deal.

The A1/A-/A rated deal comprises a USD750m three-year piece launched at Treasuries +30bp and a USD1.25bn 10-year launched at T+92bp.

That was significantly tighter than initial price thoughts of low 40s and 105bp area out earlier in the day. A three-year floating-rate note had also been planned.
