Other Events

On September 24, 2021, The Charles Schwab Corporation (“CSC”) completed (i) its previously announced offers to exchange (the “Exchange Offers”) the 3.750% Senior Notes due 2024, 3.625% Senior Notes due 2025, 3.300% Senior Notes due 2027 and 2.750% Senior Notes due 2029 (collectively, the “TDA Notes”) issued by TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (“TDA Holding”) for 3.750% Senior Notes due 2024, 3.625% Senior Notes due 2025, 3.300% Senior Notes due 2027 and 2.750% Senior Notes due 2029 to be issued by CSC (collectively, the “CSC Notes”) and cash and (ii) the related solicitation of consents (the “Consent Solicitation”) from the holders of the TDA Notes for the adoption of certain proposed amendments, such as the elimination of certain restrictive covenants (the “Proposed Amendments”) in the indenture and supplemental indentures governing the TDA Notes (the “TDA Indentures”).

The Exchange Offers commenced on August 24, 2021 and expired at 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on September 22, 2021 (the “Expiration Date”). As of the Expiration Date, the principal amounts of TDA Notes set forth in the table below had been validly tendered and accepted for exchange by CSC and subsequently cancelled:

   $744,029,000    93.00%

2.750% Senior Notes due 2029

   $475,202,000    95.04%

Following such cancellation, $212,656,000 aggregate principal amount at maturity of TDA Notes remain outstanding.

As of the Expiration Date, all conditions to the Exchange Offers were satisfied. In connection with the settlement of the Exchange Offers, CSC issued $349,889,000 of 3.750% Senior Notes due 2024, $418,224,000 of 3.625% Senior Notes due 2025, $744,029,000 of 3.300% Senior Notes due 2027 and $475,202,000 of 2.750% Senior Notes due 2029 and distributed the total exchange compensation to eligible holders of TDA Notes who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw such notes at or prior to the Expiration Date. The CSC Notes were issued under a Senior Indenture dated as of June 5, 2009 (the “Senior Indenture”), as supplemented by a Nineteenth Supplemental Indenture dated as of September 24, 2021 (the “Nineteenth Supplemental Indenture,” and the Senior Indenture as amended, modified and supplemented thereby, the “Indenture”), each between CSC and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., a national banking association, as trustee.

With respect to the TDA Notes, at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 7, 2021, CSC had obtained the requisite consents applicable to each series of TDA Notes needed to adopt the Proposed Amendments to the TDA Indentures. Accordingly, TDA Holding entered into an Eighth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of September 17, 2021 (“Eighth Supplemental Indenture”), by and between TDA Holding and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, which amends and supplements the TDA Indentures and adopts the Proposed Amendments. The foregoing summary of the Eighth Supplemental Indenture does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms of the Eighth Supplemental Indenture, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 4.73 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Exchange Offers and Consent Solicitations were made pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in CSC’s registration statement on Form S-4, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on August 24, 2021, as amended by Amendment No. 1 to the Form S-4,


filed by CSC with the SEC on September 10, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”), and the final prospectus, filed by CSC with the SEC on September 13, 2021 (the “Prospectus”). The CSC Notes have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to the Registration Statement. The terms of the CSC Notes are further described in the Prospectus.

Copies of the Nineteenth Supplemental Indenture and the forms of the CSC Notes are attached as Exhibits 4.68, 4.69, 4.70, 4.71, 4.72, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
