(1) The page on Bloomberg from which the Dealer Managers quoted the bid-side prices of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified in the table above.


(2) Schedule A to the Offering Memorandum sets forth the formula for the calculation of the Exchange Price.  The Exchange Price was calculated at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019.   


(3) With respect to each series of Old Notes, represents the amount that will be paid in cash, representing the portion of the Exchange Price that exceeds $1,000 per $1,000 principal amount of such validly tendered Old Notes.

The Exchange Offers are being made pursuant to an Offering Memorandum and a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery, each dated September 25, 2019, which contain detailed information concerning the terms of the Exchange Offers and the Eligibility Letter. 

The Exchange Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019 unless extended or earlier terminated by SHUSA (the "Exchange Offer Expiration Time"). Old Notes tendered for exchange may be validly withdrawn at any time at or before the Exchange Offer Expiration Time, unless extended or earlier terminated.

The "Exchange Price" for each $1,000 principal amount of the Old Notes validly tendered and accepted for exchange (including any such Old Notes delivered by the Guaranteed Delivery Date (as defined in the Offering Memorandum) via the guaranteed delivery procedures set forth in the Offering Memorandum) is a combination of: (i) a principal amount of New Notes equal to the discounted value (calculated in accordance with the formula set forth in Schedule A to the Offering Memorandum) on the Exchange Offer Payment Date (as defined below) of the remaining payments of principal and interest (excluding accrued interest) per $1,000 principal amount of the Old Notes through the applicable par call date of the Old Notes, using a yield equal to the sum of the yield (the "Reference Yield") based on the bid-side price of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified in the table above, as calculated by the Dealer Managers at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019 (subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Offering Memorandum, such time and date, as the same may be extended, the "Price Determination Time") plus the Fixed Spread specified in the table above, minus the Cash Component (as defined below); and (ii) cash with an aggregate value equal to the applicable Exchange Price per $1,000 principal amount of such series of Old Notes minus $1,000 (the "Cash Component").

The interest rate on the New Notes will accrue from the Payment Date at a rate equal to the sum of (x) 1.564%, the bid-side yield on the Reference U.S. Treasury Security due August 31, 2026 at the Price Determination Time and (y) 1.68% (168.0 basis points). The applicable yield (and coupon) on the New Notes is 3.244%, and Applicable Spread with respect to the Company's option to redeem (as set forth in the Offering Memorandum) is 25 basis points.

Payment for any Old Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase will be made promptly following the Exchange Offer Expiration Time (such date, the "Exchange Offer Payment Date"). We expect the Exchange Offer Payment Date to occur on October 4, 2019 and we expect the payment for Old Notes delivered under the guaranteed delivery procedures to occur on October 4, 2019. Old Notes purchased pursuant to the Exchange Offers will be cancelled.

The Exchange Offers are conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain customary conditions described in the Offering Memorandum, including the timely satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the completion of the corresponding Cash Offers.  The Exchange Offers are conditioned upon the issuance of an aggregate principal amount of New Notes of not less than $400,000,000.

Cash Offers

The following table sets forth the Purchase Prices of each series of Old Notes validly tendered and accepted in the Cash Offers, as calculated at 2:00 p.m., New York City time , on October 1, 2019.

(1) The page on Bloomberg from which the Dealer Managers (as defined below) quoted the bid-side prices of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified in the table above.


(2) Per $1,000 principal amount of each series of Old Notes accepted for purchase calculated on the basis of pricing for the Reference U.S. Treasury Security as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019 and a Cash Offer Payment Date (as defined below) of October 4, 2019. The calculation of the Purchase Price, as set forth in the Offer to Purchase, was performed using the present value at the applicable price determination time as if the principal amount had been due on the par call date.

The Cash Offers are being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase and a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery, each dated September 25, 2019, which contain detailed information concerning the terms of the Cash Offers and the Certification Instructions Letter. 

The Cash Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019 unless extended or earlier terminated by SHUSA (the "Cash Offer Expiration Time").  Old Notes tendered for purchase may be validly withdrawn at any time at or before the Cash Offer Expiration time, unless extended or earlier terminated.

The "Purchase Price" for each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase (including any such Old Notes delivered by the Guaranteed Delivery Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) via the guaranteed delivery procedures set forth in the Offer to Purchase) was determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to a fixed spread specified for the Old Notes (the "Fixed Spread") specified in the table above plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified in the table above at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated.

Payment for any Old Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase will be made promptly following the Cash Offer Expiration Time (such date, the "Cash Offer Payment Date"). We expect the

Cash Offer Payment Date to occur on October 4, 2019 and we expect the payment for Old Notes delivered under the guaranteed delivery procedures to occur on October 4, 2019. Old Notes purchased pursuant to the Cash Offers will be cancelled.

The Cash Offers are conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including the timely satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the completion of the corresponding Exchange Offers and other customary conditions.  The Cash Offers are not conditioned upon the tender of any minimum principal amount of Old Notes.  The maximum aggregate amount of cash that the Company will use to purchase all validly tendered Old Notes in the Cash Offers is $200,000,000, unless waived by it as provided in the Offer to Purchase.
