(2) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for payment.
(3) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for payment.
(4) Includes Tender Offer Consideration and Early Tender Payment.

The tender offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on January 7, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (such time and date, as the same may be extended or earlier terminated, the “Expiration Time”). In order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as described below) for tendered Notes, holders must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 22, 2020, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (such time and date, as the same may be extended or earlier terminated, the “Early Tender Deadline”).

The tender offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase, including (1) the receipt of at least $300 million in aggregate gross proceeds from one or more offerings of debt securities on terms reasonably acceptable to the Company, and (2) certain general conditions, in each case as described in more detail in the Offer to Purchase. If any of the conditions are not satisfied, the Company may terminate the tender offer and return tendered Notes, may waive unsatisfied conditions and accept for payment and purchase all validly tendered Notes, may extend the tender offer or may otherwise amend the tender offer.

The “Total Consideration” for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase pursuant to the tender offer will be an amount equal to $1,016.00, payable in cash to holders that validly tender their Notes prior to the Early Tender Deadline, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The Total Consideration set forth above includes an “Early Tender Payment” of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, payable only to holders that validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Holders of Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline will not receive an Early Tender Payment.

Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline may be validly withdrawn at any time prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline may not be validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Deadline. If the Offer is fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, Holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Deadline will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase.

Notes may be subject to proration if the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would cause the Maximum Tender Amount to be exceeded. In the event any tendered Notes are not accepted for purchase due to proration, they will be promptly returned or credited to the Holder’s account. Notes purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer will be cancelled.

The complete terms and conditions of the tender offer are set forth in the Offer to Purchase and the Letter of Transmittal that are being sent to holders of the Notes. Holders are urged to read the Offer to Purchase and the Letter of Transmittal carefully when they become available.
