NOTE 9. DEBT
Loans Payable and Commercial Paper
Loans payable, commercial paper and the related weighted-average interest rates were as follows:
(1) Loans payable consist primarily of notes payable to various domestic and international financial institutions and it is not practicable to aggregate these notes and calculate a quarterly weighted-average interest rate.
(2) The weighted-average interest rate, inclusive of all brokerage fees, was 2.60 percent and 2.59 percent at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.
We can issue up to $3.5 billion of unsecured, short-term promissory notes ("commercial paper") pursuant to our board authorized commercial paper programs. The programs facilitate the private placement of unsecured short-term debt through third party brokers. We intend to use the net proceeds from the commercial paper borrowings for general corporate purposes.
Revolving Credit Facilities
We have access to committed credit facilities that total $3.5 billion, including a $1.5 billion 364-day facility that expires August 21, 2019 and a $2.0 billion five-year facility that expires on August 22, 2023. We intend to maintain credit facilities of a similar aggregate amount by renewing or replacing these facilities before expiration. These revolving credit facilities are maintained primarily to provide backup liquidity for our commercial paper borrowings and for general corporate purposes.
At March 31, 2019, the $709 million of outstanding commercial paper effectively reduced the $3.5 billion of revolving credit capacity to $2.8 billion and $187 million available for borrowings under our international and other domestic credit facilities.
A summary of long-term debt was as follows:
(1) The effective interest rate on this debt is 7.48%.
Principal payments required on long-term debt during the next five years are as follows:
Fair Value of Debt
Based on borrowing rates currently available to us for bank loans with similar terms and average maturities, considering our risk premium, the fair values and carrying values of total debt, including current maturities, were as follows:
(1) The fair value of debt is derived from Level 2 inputs.
Shelf RegistrationAs a well-known seasoned issuer, we filed an automatic shelf registration for an undetermined amount of debt and equity securities with the SEC on February 13, 2019. Under this shelf registration we may offer, from time to time, debt securities, common stock, preferred and preference stock, depositary shares, warrants, stock purchase contracts and stock purchase units.
