Note 7: Borrowings
Long-term debt at December 31 consisted of the following:
In March 2009, we issued $2.40 billion of fixed-rate notes with interest to be paid semi-annually. The $400.0 million of floating rate bonds outstanding at December 31, 2008 were repaid with proceeds from this issuance.
The 6.55 percent Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) debentures are obligations of the ESOP but are shown on the consolidated balance sheet because we guarantee them. The principal and interest on the debt are funded by contributions from us and by dividends received on certain shares held by the ESOP. Because of the amortizing feature of the ESOP debt, bondholders will receive both interest and principal payments each quarter. The balance was $72.8 million and $81.9 million at December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively, and is included in Other in the table above.
The aggregate amounts of maturities on long-term debt for the next five years are as follows: 2010, $20.3 million; 2011, $15.8 million; 2012, $1.51 billion; 2013, $13.9 million; and 2014, $1.01 billion.
At December 31, 2009 and 2008, short-term borrowings included $7.1 million and $5.43 billion, respectively, of notes payable to banks and commercial paper. Commercial paper was issued in late 2008 for the acquisition of ImClone. At December 31, 2009, we have $1.24 billion of unused committed bank credit facilities, $1.20 billion of which backs our commercial paper program and matures in May, 2011. Compensating balances and commitment fees are not material, and there are no conditions that are probable of occurring under which the lines may be withdrawn.
We have converted approximately 65 percent of all fixed-rate debt to floating rates through the use of interest rate swaps. The weighted-average effective borrowing rates based on debt obligations and interest rates at December 31, 2009 and 2008, including the effects of interest rate swaps for hedged debt obligations, were 3.07 percent and 4.77 percent, respectively.
In 2009, 2008, and 2007, cash payments of interest on borrowings totaled $205.9 million, $203.1 million, and $159.2 million, respectively, net of capitalized interest.
In accordance with the requirements of derivatives and hedging guidance, the portion of our fixed-rate debt obligations that is hedged is reflected in the consolidated balance sheets as an amount equal to the sum of the debts carrying value plus the fair value adjustment representing changes in fair value of the hedged debt attributable to movements in market interest rates subsequent to the inception of the hedge.
