Wells Fargo (WFC) is selling $2.75 billion of three-year bonds in a two-part deal Wednesday, according to a person familiar with the transaction.

The bank is offering $2 billion of fixed-rate bonds at 1.15 percentage points over the Treasury rate, plus $750 million of floating-rate notes at 0.92 percentage points over the three-month London interbank offered rate, or Libor. The Libor rate is 0.47 percentage points this week, according to Bankrate.com.

The offered yield on each piece is at the lower end of earlier pricing guidance, suggesting broad demand.

The bonds are expected to be rated A2 by Moody's Investors Service, A-plus by Standard & Poor's, and AA-minus by Fitch Ratings. The deal is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Proceeds from the deal are for general corporate purposes.

Wells Fargo Securities is serving as sole underwriter on the deal.
