Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- National Australia Bank Ltd., sold $2.25 billion of fixed- and floating-rate notes in a boosted three-part offering, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

National Australia Bank earlier marketed $450 million of the floating-rate debt, according to a person familiar with the transaction who declined to be identified because the marketing was private.
