The offers with respect to the Securities are subject to the Aggregate Tender Cap and, in the case of the Notes due 2025, the Series Tender Cap. The Company will purchase up to the Aggregate Tender Cap of its Securities, subject to the Acceptance Priority Levels as set forth in the table above (each, an "Acceptance Priority Level") and the Series Tender Cap.

Per $1,000 principal amount.

 

The Tender Offers are being made pursuant to an offer to purchase, dated March 15, 2022 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Offer to Purchase"), which sets forth the terms and conditions of the Tender Offers. The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 11, 2022, or, in each case, any other date and time to which the Company extends the applicable Tender Offer (such date and time, as it may be extended with respect to a Tender Offer, the applicable "Expiration Date"), unless earlier terminated.

The applicable consideration (the "Total Consideration") offered per $1,000 principal amount of each series of Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable "Fixed Spread" for such series of Securities specified in the table above plus the applicable yield based on the bid-side price of the applicable "U.S. Treasury Reference Security" specified in the table above as quoted on the applicable Bloomberg Reference Page specified in the table above at 10:00 a.m. New York City time on March 29, 2022. The Company expects to issue a press release on March 29, 2022 to announce the Reference Yield (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) for each series of Securities that will be used in determining the Total Consideration payable in connection with the Tender Offers. It is anticipated that the settlement date for Securities that are validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date will be March 30, 2022.

The Company's obligation to accept for payment and to pay for the Securities validly tendered in the Tender Offers is not subject to any minimum tender condition, but is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. The Company reserves the right, subject to applicable law, at any time to (i) waive any and all conditions to any of the Tender Offers, (ii) extend or terminate any of the Tender Offers, (iii) increase, decrease or eliminate the Aggregate Tender Cap, (iv) increase, decrease or eliminate the Series Tender Cap, or (v) otherwise amend any of the Tender Offers in any respect.
