Item 8.01. Other Events.

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (the “Company”) and Banc of America Securities LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Goldman, Sachs & Co., acting for themselves and as representatives of the other several underwriters named in Schedule I to the Pricing Agreement (as defined below) (the “Underwriters”) have entered into a Pricing Agreement, dated August 17, 2007 (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, $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 5.800% Notes Due 2018 (the “2018 Notes”) and $2,250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 6.500% Notes Due 2037 (the “2037 Notes” and, together with the 2018 Notes, the “Notes”). The Pricing Agreement incorporates by reference the terms and conditions of an Underwriting Agreement, dated May 19, 2006 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), between the Company and, as to the issuance and sale of the Notes, the Underwriters.

The Company and the Underwriters expect to consummate the sale and purchase of the Notes pursuant to the Pricing Agreement on August 24, 2007. The 2018 Notes will be sold to the public at an aggregate issue price of 99.823% of the principal amount thereof ($499,115,000 in proceeds before underwriting commissions and transaction expenses). The 2037 Notes will be sold to the public at an issue price of 99.924% of the principal amount thereof ($2,248,290,000 in proceeds before underwriting commissions and transaction expenses). In total, the Notes will be sold to the public at an issue price of $2,747,405,000. The net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the 2018 Notes, after the underwriting discount, but before transaction expenses of the sale of the 2018 Notes, will be $496,865,000. The net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the 2037 Notes, after the underwriting discount, but before transaction expenses of the sale of the 2037 Notes, will be $2,228,602,500. In total, 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 an aggregate of $2,725,467,500.

The 2018 Notes constitute the Company’s newly created series of 5.800% Notes Due 2018 (the “2018 Series”), and the 2037 Notes constitute the Company’s newly created series of 6.500% Notes Due 2037 (the “2037 Series” and, together with the 2018 Series, the “New Series”). The Notes of each of the 2018 Series and the 2037 Series are senior, unsecured and unsubordinated debt securities of the Company and rank equally with the Notes of the other New Series and all of the other senior, unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Company. The 2018 Series and the 2037 Series were created and established, and their 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, as supplemented (the “Indenture”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the “Trustee”). The terms of the 2018 Notes and the 2037 Notes are as set forth in the Indenture and in the forms of the Global Notes (referred to below) that will represent the Notes.

The material terms of the Notes are described in the prospectus supplement of the Company dated August 17, 2007, which relates to the offer and sale of the Notes (the “Prospectus Supplement”), and the Company’s prospectus dated December 21, 2005, which


prospectus relates to the offer and sale from time to time of an indeterminate amount of the Company’s debt securities (the “Prospectus”). The Prospectus Supplement, together with the Prospectus, was filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on August 21, 2007 pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2) under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in connection with the offer and sale of the Notes. A Final Term Sheet, dated August 17, 2007, relating to the Notes was filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 433 under the Securities Act on August 17, 2007.

The Notes will be delivered in book-entry form only. The 2018 Notes will be represented by a global note, in the original principal amount of $500,000,000 (the “2018 Global Note”). The 2037 Notes will be represented by five global notes, four of which will be in the principal amount of $500,000,000 and one of which will be in the principal amount of $250,000,000 (the “2037 Global Notes” and, together with the 2018 Global Note, the “Global Notes”). Each Global Note will be payable to Cede & Co., as nominee of The Depository Trust Company. The Global Notes will be executed by the Company and authenticated by the Trustee.
