On July 13, 2020, Jabil Inc.

The form and term of the Notes were established pursuant to an Officers’ Certificate, dated as of July 13, 2020 (the “Officers’ Certificate”), supplementing the Indenture, dated as of January 16, 2008, between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association (as successor in interest to The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (formerly known as The Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A.)), as trustee (the “Indenture”).

The Notes mature on January 15, 2031 and bear interest at the rate of 3.000% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, beginning January 15, 2021. The Notes are unsecured obligations of the Company and rank equally in right of payment with all of the Company’s other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness.

Prior to October 15, 2030 (three months prior to the scheduled maturity date of the Notes), the Company is entitled, at its option, to redeem all or a portion of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus a “make-whole” premium and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.

The Company may also be required to offer to repurchase the Notes upon the occurrence of a Change of Control Repurchase Event (as defined in the Officers’ Certificate) at a repurchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes to be repurchased.

The Indenture contains certain covenants, including, but not limited to, covenants limiting the Company’s ability and/or its subsidiaries’ ability to: create certain liens; enter into sale and leaseback transactions; create, incur, issue, assume or guarantee any funded debt (applicable only to the Company’s “restricted subsidiaries”); guarantee any of the Company’s indebtedness (applicable only to the Company’s subsidiaries); and consolidate or merge with, or convey, transfer or lease all or substantially all of its assets to another person.
