New York –- Walgreens has reportedly filed for an eight-part benchmark bond offering to help finance its planned $5.3 billion purchase of U.K. drugstore retailer Alliance Boots GmBH. According to Bloomberg, Walgreens has filed with the SEC for three-, five-, seven-, 10-, 20- and 30-year fixed-rate bonds, as well as 18-month and three-year floating-rate notes.
J.C. Penney Co. filed a lawsuit asking a Delaware judge to declare that it is not in a default of its bond agreements, protecting nearly $3 billion of debt from being due in the coming months, Reuters reported.
Prudential Douglas Elliman's Retail Group said that it has arranged another location for Bond No. 9, this time in Meatpacking at 863 Washington Street, between 13th and 14th Streets, near the edge of the High Line.
