DaVita Inc. (DVA) plans to sell $1.45 billion of notes to fund the potential repurchase of up to $1.55 billion of debt as the operator of dialysis centers joins a host of companies looking to retire near-term borrowings with longer-data, and hopefully cheaper, debt.

The length of the notes to be sold wasn't disclosed in a statement. In the tender offer are $700 million of 6 5/8% notes maturing in 2013 and $850 million of 7 1/4% notes due 2015. The company is offering 1.9% and 3.9% above face value, respectively, including an early tender premium.

Sale of the new notes is contingent on closing new credit lines. DaVita last week announced a $3.35 billion debt-refinancing plan that besides the $1.55 billion of notes includes $1.8 billion of borrowings under senior credit lines.

DaVita has seen earnings grow in recent quarters amid increasing demand. Last month, uncertainty that had jostled its share price for months was lifted as effects of a shift in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement were clarified. The company's commentary on the changes was cautiously upbeat, according to an analyst.

Shares closed at $69.03 Thursday and didn't trade premarket. Thos stock has risen 18% this year.
