Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (the “Company”) and Lehman Brothers Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated, 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 January 12, 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, $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 4.00% Notes Due 2010 (the “Notes”). The Pricing Agreement incorporates by reference the terms of an Underwriting Agreement, dated as of February 18, 2003 (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 January 20, 2005. The Notes will be sold to the public at an issue price of 99.509% of the Notes’ principal amount ($995,090,000). 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 $991,590,000.

 

The terms of the Notes are as set forth in the prospectus supplement of the Company, dated January 12, 2005, to its prospectus dated December 27, 2002, relating to the offer and sale of the Notes (the “Prospectus Supplement”), which Prospectus Supplement was filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on January 14, 2005 pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2) of the Commission promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes constitute the Company’s newly created series of 4.00% Notes Due 2010 (the “2010 Series”). The 2010 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 Indenture, dated as of December 11, 2002 (the “Indenture”), between the Company and J.P. Morgan Trust Company, National Association, as successor in interest to Bank One Trust Company, NA, as trustee (the “Trustee”). The terms of the Notes are as set forth in the Indenture, which is an exhibit to the Registration Statement on Form S-3 of the Company (Commission File No. 333-101874), and in the form of the promissory note that represents the Notes. The Notes will be delivered in the form of two global notes, each in the original principal amount of $500,000,000, representing the Notes issued and sold (the “Global Notes”), which will be executed by the Company and authenticated by the Trustee. Copies of the Pricing Agreement, the Underwriting Agreement and the form of the Global Notes are attached as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K. Also attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K are the Series Terms Certificate, as contemplated by the Indenture, that evidences the establishment of certain terms and conditions of the 2010 Series in accordance with the Indenture, and the opinion of Hughes & Luce, LLP regarding the legality of the Notes.
