Halliburton intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes, including financing a portion of the cash consideration component of Halliburton’s pending acquisition of Baker Hughes Inc.

The 2020 notes and the 2022 notes will be subject to a special mandatory redemption if the Baker Hughes acquisition is not consummated. Pending the application of the net proceeds to finance the Baker Hughes acquisition, Halliburton may temporarily invest the net proceeds in cash equivalents or short-term investments.
