|Debt Disclosure [Abstract]|
Long-term Debt. In November 2022, we issued unsecured fixed-rate notes, consisting of $700 million of fixed-rate 5.40% notes and $1.2 billion of fixed-rate 6.00% notes (collectively, November 2022 Notes) that mature on May 20, 2033 and May 20, 2053, respectively. The net proceeds from the November 2022 Notes were used to repay $946 million of fixed-rate notes and $500 million of floating-rate notes that matured in January 2023 and the excess will be used for general corporate purposes.
At March 26, 2023, the aggregate fair value of our outstanding floating- and fixed-rate notes, based on Level 2 inputs, was approximately $15.1 billion.
Interest Rate Swaps. At September 25, 2022, we had outstanding forward-starting interest rate swaps with an aggregate notional amount, denominated in U.S. dollars, of $1.6 billion. During the first quarter of fiscal 2023, in connection with the issuance of the November 2022 Notes, we terminated these swaps, and the related gains of $334 million, included within accumulated comprehensive income, are being recorded as a reduction to interest expense over the hedged portions of the related debt.
Commercial Paper Program. We have an unsecured commercial paper program, which provides for the issuance of up to $4.5 billion of commercial paper. At March 26, 2023 and September 25, 2022, we had $499 million of outstanding commercial paper recorded as short-term debt.
The entire disclosure for information about short-term and long-term debt arrangements, which includes amounts of borrowings under each line of credit, note payable, commercial paper issue, bonds indenture, debenture issue, own-share lending arrangements and any other contractual agreement to repay funds, and about the underlying arrangements, rationale for a classification as long-term, including repayment terms, interest rates, collateral provided, restrictions on use of assets and activities, whether or not in compliance with debt covenants, and other matters important to users of the financial statements, such as the effects of refinancing and noncompliance with debt covenants.
