February 21, 2012

Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Societe Generale SA will raise as much as 2 billion euros from its two-part sale of senior unsecured bonds, according to a person with knowledge of the transaction.

The offering includes an 18-month floating-rate note portion of as much as 1 billion euros that may be priced at 88 to 90 basis points more than Euribor, the person said. A five- year fixed-rate tranche of up to 1 billion euros may yield 222 to 225 basis points more than the benchmark mid-swap rate, the person said.
