Section 8 – Other Events
Item 8.01 Other Events
On June 3, 2020, Kentucky Utilities Company (“KU”) issued $500,000,000 aggregate principal of 3.300% First Mortgage Bonds due 2050 (the “Bonds”).
The Bonds were issued under KU’s Indenture (the “Indenture”), dated as of October 1, 2010, to The Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee, as previously supplemented and as supplemented by Supplemental Indenture No. 8 thereto (the “Supplemental Indenture”), dated as of May 15, 2020. The Bonds will be secured by the lien of the Indenture, which creates, subject to certain exceptions and exclusions, a lien on substantially all of KU’s real and tangible personal property located in Kentucky and used or to be used in connection with the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity, as described therein.
The Bonds are due June 1, 2050, subject to early redemption. KU intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Bonds toward the repayment of its 3.25% First Mortgage Bonds due November 1, 2020 and for other general corporate purposes.
The Bonds were offered under KU’s Registration Statement on Form
S-3
on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (Registration Statement No.
 333-223142-01).
The Supplemental Indenture and Officer’s Certificate are filed with this report as Exhibits 4(a) and 4(b), respectively.
