Rolls-Royce has successfully priced its debut US dollar-denominated 144A/Reg S bond and raised gross proceeds of approximately $1.5bn. The transaction consists of $500 million aggregate principal amount of 2.375% notes due 2020, priced at T+105 basis points (bps) and $1bn aggregate principal amount of 3.625% notes due 2025 at T+160bps.  Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citi, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan are joint bookrunners. The issuance was substantially oversubscribed, with particular interest for the ten-year notes, which are trading at 10 bps tighter in the secondary market today. We had a $9bn orderbook, and we compressed the pricing significantly from T+187.5bps
