Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On September 6, 2019, The Coca-Cola Company (the “Company”) completed a public offering of $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 1.750% Notes due 2024 and $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 2.125% Notes due 2029 (collectively, the “Notes”).

 

The offering of the Notes was made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-214273) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 27, 2016, as amended by Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 filed with the SEC on May 22, 2017.

 

In connection with the offering of the Notes, the Company entered into an Underwriting Agreement, dated September 4, 2019 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), between the Company and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (together, the “Underwriters”). Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company agreed to sell the Notes to the Underwriters, and the Underwriters agreed to purchase the Notes for resale to the public. The Underwriting Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants by the Company. It also provides for customary indemnification by each of the Company and the Underwriters against certain liabilities and customary contribution provisions in respect of those liabilities.

 

The Notes were issued under an Amended and Restated Indenture, dated as of April 26, 1988 (as supplemented, the “Indenture”), between the Company and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as successor to Bankers Trust Company, as trustee, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of February 24, 1992, and the Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of November 1, 2007, between the Company and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as successor to Bankers Trust Company, as trustee.

 

The Underwriting Agreement, the Indenture and the respective forms of global note for the offering are filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.

The agreements contain representations and warranties by each of the parties to the applicable agreement. These representations and warranties have been made solely for the benefit of the other parties to the applicable agreement and:

 

· should not in all instances be treated as categorical statements of fact, but rather as a way of allocating the risk to one of the parties if those statements prove to be inaccurate;
· may have been qualified by disclosures that were made to the other party in connection with the negotiation of the applicable agreement, which disclosures are not necessarily reflected in the agreement;
· may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material to you or other investors; and
· were made only as of the date of the applicable agreement or such other date or dates as may be specified in the agreement and are subject to more recent developments.

 

Accordingly, these representations and warranties may not describe the actual state of affairs as of the date they were made or at any other time.
