The rate will be set on December 16 at the higher of 8% or 4.55 percentage points above the five-year swap rate.

Contact says $175 million of the issue has been reserved for clients of participants in the bookbuild which set the interest rate and margin and that the remaining $75 million is open to the public on a first in, first served basis.

The bonds, which rank behind Contact's other debt, $2.46 billion at June 30, but ahead of equity, $3.24 billion at June 30, will mature on February 15, 2042 but are likely to be redeemed in February 2017. They are expected to be rated "BB-" by Standard & Poor's.

The offer is set to close on December 15.
