It's a good time to borrow, and Apollo (APO +3.8%) plans to offer $300M in 10-year notes, reports Bloomberg, with the funds being used to pay back a portion of a $1B term loan due in 2019.

Apollo's sale comes a week after P-E competitor KKR raised $500M of 30-year money (boosted from an initially planned $300M). Blackstone issued $500M of 30-year paper in April.
