Payments to providers of capital

Debt service – As of December 31, 2018, we had outstanding short-term borrowings of $73.7 from our
uncommitted lines of credit used primarily to fund seasonal working capital needs. The remainder of our debt is
primarily long-term, with maturities scheduled from 2020 through 2048. On September 21, 2018, we issued
$2,000.0 in aggregate principal amount of unsecured senior notes (in four separate series of $500.0 each, together
the “Senior Notes”). On October 1, 2018, we borrowed an additional $500.0 through debt financing arrangements
with third-party lenders under a three-year term loan agreement (the “Term Loan Agreement”), $100.0 of which we
repaid on December 3, 2018. See Note 3 in Item 8, Financial Statements and Supplementary Data for further
information.
