NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:ETFC) today announced the pricing of $420 million in principal amount of 4.50% senior notes due 2028. E*TRADE expects to close the sale of these senior notes on June 20, 2018 subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
These senior notes will pay interest semi-annually and will be E*TRADE’s general unsecured senior obligations.
