This excerpt taken from the SWY 10-Q filed May 3, 2006.
Pursuant to a shelf registration filed with the SEC on July 27, 2004 (as amended), Safeway issued $250 million of Floating Rate Notes (the Notes) on March 28, 2006. The Notes mature on March 27, 2009. Interest will be equal to LIBOR plus 0.35% and will be reset quarterly. The Company will pay interest on the Notes quarterly in arrears on each March 27, June 27, September 27 and December 27, beginning on June 27, 2006. The Company may redeem the Notes on any interest payment date that is on or after September 27, 2006, in whole or in part, at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon. Safeway used the net proceeds from the Notes to repay borrowings under its U.S. commercial paper program.
