Agilent Technologies Calls For Redemption Of Outstanding 5.5 Percent Senior Notes Due September 2015

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.

This is not an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.
