$1,500,000,000 Floating Rate Notes due 2020



Verizon Communications Inc. (“Verizon”)


Title of Securities:

Floating Rate Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”)


Trade Date:

May 11, 2017


Settlement Date (T+7):

May 22, 2017


  Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market are required to settle in three business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the Notes prior to the third U.S. business day before the settlement date will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Notes initially settle in T+7, to specify an alternate settlement arrangement at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of the Notes who wish to trade the Notes prior to the U.S. third business day before the settlement date should consult their advisors.


Maturity Date:

May 22, 2020


Aggregate Principal Amount Offered:



Public Offering Price:

100.000% plus accrued interest, if any, from May 22, 2017

Use of Proceeds:

Interest Rate:

Three-month LIBOR plus 0.550%, to be reset quarterly. The interest rate on the Notes will in no event be lower than zero.

Interest Payment Dates:

Quarterly in arrears on each February 22, May 22, August 22 and November 22, beginning August 22, 2017. If any interest payment date falls on a day that is not a business day, as defined below, we will make the interest payment on the next succeeding business day unless that business day is in the next succeeding calendar month, in which case (other than in the case of the interest payment date on the maturity date) we will make the interest payment on the immediately preceding business day. If an interest payment is made on the next succeeding business day, no interest will accrue as a result of the delay in payment. Interest on the Notes will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed. Interest on the Notes will accrue from, and including, May 22, 2017, to, but excluding, the first interest payment date and then from, and including, the immediately preceding interest payment date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for to, but excluding, the next interest payment date or the maturity date, as the case may be.


  When we use the term “business day” with respect to the Notes, we mean any day, other than a Saturday or a Sunday, that is neither a legal holiday nor a day on which commercial banks are authorized or required by law, regulation or executive order to close in The City of New York; provided that such day is also a London business day. “London business day” means any day on which commercial banks are open for business, including dealings in U.S. dollars, in London.
