Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (the “Company”) and Samuel A. Ramirez & Company, Inc., Utendahl Capital Group, LLC and Goldman, Sachs & Co., acting for themselves and as the representatives for the other underwriters named in Schedule I to the Pricing Agreement (as defined below) (the “Underwriters”), have entered into a Pricing Agreement, dated August 8, 2005 (the “Pricing Agreement”), pursuant to which, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth therein, the Company has agreed to sell to the Underwriters, and the Underwriters have agreed to purchase from the Company, $800,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 4.75% Notes Due 2010 (the “Notes”). The Pricing Agreement incorporates by reference the terms and conditions of an Underwriting Agreement, dated August 8, 2005 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), by and among the Company and, as to the issuance and sale of the Notes, the Underwriters.

 

The Company and the Underwriters intend to consummate the sale and purchase of the Notes pursuant to the Pricing Agreement on August 15, 2005. The Notes will be sold to the public at an issue price of 99.872% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes, which is an aggregate issue price of $798,976,000. The net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the Notes, after the underwriting discount, but before transaction expenses of the sale of the Notes, will be $796,176,000.

 

The Notes constitute the Company’s newly created series of 4.75% Notes Due 2010 (the “Series”) and are senior, unsecured debt securities of the Company. The Series was created and established, and its terms and conditions were established, by action of the Company and an authorized officer of the Company pursuant to, and in accordance with, the terms of the Indenture, dated as of July 19, 2005 (the “Indenture”), between the Company and J.P. Morgan Trust Company, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”). The terms of the Notes are as set forth in the Indenture and in the form of Global Note (referred to below) that will represent the Notes.

 

The material terms of the Notes are described in (i) the prospectus supplement of the Company dated August 8, 2005, which relates to the offer and sale of the Notes (the “Prospectus Supplement”) and supplements the Company’s prospectus dated July 19, 2005, which prospectus relates to the offer and sale from time to time of up to $5,000,000,000 of the Company’s debt securities (the “Prospectus”), and (ii) in the Prospectus. The Prospectus Supplement and the Prospectus were filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on August 10, 2005 pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2) of the Commission promulgated under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in connection with the offer and sale of the Notes.

 

The Notes will be delivered in book-entry form only and will be represented by two global notes, one of which will be in the original principal amount of $500,000,000 and the other of which will be in the original principal amount of $300,000,000 (the “Global Notes”). Each of the Global Notes will be payable to CEDE & Co., as the nominee of The Depository Trust Company. The Global Notes will be executed by the Company and authenticated by the Trustee.
