The company also sold $1 billion of six-month bills due Jan. 15, 2014 at a 0.095 percent rate, down from the 0.113 percent rate for $1 billion of six-month bills sold last week.
The three-month bills were priced at 99.987 with a money market yield of 0.050 percent. The six-month bills were priced at 99.952 with a money market yield of 0.095 percent.
Settlement is July 17-18.
