BOSTON, Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Santander Holdings USA, Inc. ("SHUSA") today announced the expiration and expiration date results of its two separate previously announced offers to exchange (the "Exchange Offers") and related offers to purchase for cash (the "Cash Offers") any and all of its outstanding 4.450% Senior Notes Due 2021 and 3.700% Senior Notes Due 2022 (the "Old Notes").
The Exchange Offers were 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 expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019 (the "Exchange Offer Expiration Time").
SHUSA will issue 3.244% Senior Notes Due 2026 (the "New Notes") and pay the applicable cash component of the Exchange Price for any Old Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for exchange promptly following the Exchange Offer Expiration Time (such date, the "Exchange Offer Payment Date").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 issuance of the New Notes and the payment of the Exchange Price for Old Notes delivered under the guaranteed delivery procedures to occur on October 4, 2019. Old Notes exchanged pursuant to the Exchange Offers will be cancelled.
The following table sets forth the aggregate principal amount of each series of Old Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Exchange Offer Expiration Time and the aggregate principal amount of each series of Old Notes that SHUSA expects to accept in connection with the Exchange Offers.

4.450% Notes due 2021
3.700% Notes due 2022
The principal amounts expected to be accepted reflected in the table are subject to change based on the final validation of tenders and holders' failure to make required deliveries pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures.
Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum and the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery, SHUSA expects that it will issue approximately $947,447,000 aggregate principal amount of New Notes in the Exchange Offers. Accordingly, the condition requiring the issuance of an aggregate principal amount of New Notes of not less than $400,000,000 has been satisfied.
SHUSA today announced that the other conditions to the Exchange Offers described in the Offering Memorandum, including the timely satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the completion of the corresponding Cash Offers and the absence of certain adverse legal and market developments, have been satisfied with respect to all of the Exchange Offers.
If and when issued, the New Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") or any state securities laws. Therefore, the New Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws. SHUSA will enter into a registration rights agreement with respect to the New Notes.
The Cash Offers were 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 expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 1, 2019 (the "Cash Offer Expiration Time"). Payment for any Old Notes that were 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 following table sets forth the maximum aggregate principal amount of each series of Old Notes that may be determined to be validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Cash Offer Expiration Time and the maximum aggregate principal amount of each series of Old Notes that SHUSA may accept in connection with the Cash Offers.
