Cleary Gottlieb represented the underwriters in an offering by BP Capital Markets America, a wholly owned subsidiary of BP, of $1 billion 3.41% notes due 2026 and $1 billion 4.234% notes due 2028 (a re-opening of the 4.234% notes due 2028 issued in November 2018).
The notes are guaranteed by BP. The joint book-running managers for the offering were BNP Paribas, BofA Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank Securities, HSBC, Lloyds Securities, and Morgan Stanley. The offering, a takedown from BP and BP Capital Markets America’s shelf-registration statement, closed on February 11, 2019.
