In connection with the Tender Offer for the 3.375% Notes, the Company has commenced a solicitation of consents (the “Consent Solicitation”) from holders of the 3.375% Notes to amend certain provisions (the “Proposed Amendments”) of the senior debt indenture dated February 14, 2005, as thereafter supplemented and amended (the “Base Indenture”), by and between the Company and Citibank, N.A., as trustee, as supplemented by the first supplemental indenture, dated as of October 23, 2007, by and among the Company, The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (formerly known as The Bank of New York), as trustee (the “Trustee”), and Citibank, N.A., as resigning trustee (the “First Supplemental Indenture”, and together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), and certain provisions of that certain Officers’ Certificate of the Company, dated as of September 22, 2016 (the “3.375% Notes Officers’ Certificate,” and together with the Indenture, the “Indenture Documents”), pursuant to which 3.375% Notes were issued. The Proposed Amendments would amend the Indenture Documents with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, to, among other things, eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default under such Indenture and reduce the minimum notice period required for redemptions of the 3.375% Notes from 30 calendar days as currently required by the Indenture to 3 business days.

Each of the Tender Offers and the Consent Solicitation will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 9, 2020, or any other date and time to which the Company extends such Tender Offer or the Consent Solicitation (such date and time with respect to a Tender Offer or the Consent Solicitation, as it may be extended for such Tender Offer or, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, the Consent Solicitation, the “Expiration Time”), unless earlier terminated. No tenders of Notes or, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, deliveries of the consents pursuant to the Consent Solicitation will be valid if submitted after the Expiration Time. Tendered Notes may be validly withdrawn (and consents, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, may be validly revoked) from the 3.375% Notes Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation at or prior to, but not after, 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 24, 2020 (such date and time with respect to a Tender Offer or the Consent Solicitation, as it may be extended for such Tender Offer or the Consent Solicitation, the “Withdrawal Deadline”). Holders of Notes who tender their Notes (and, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, revoke their consents) after the Withdrawal Deadline, but prior to the Expiration Time, may not withdraw their tendered Notes (or, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, revoke their consents), except for certain limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights or revocation rights are required by law.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Tender Offers and the Consent Solicitation, the consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered (and, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, any consents that have been validly delivered) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will be the tender offer consideration for the applicable series of Notes set forth in the table above (with respect to each series of Notes, the “Tender Offer Consideration”). Holders of Notes that are validly tendered (and, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, any consents that have been validly delivered) at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 24, 2020 (such date and time with respect to a Tender Offer or the Consent Solicitation, as it may be extended for such Tender Offer or the Consent Solicitation, the “Early Tender Time”) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will receive the applicable Tender Offer Consideration plus the early tender premium for the applicable series of Notes set forth in the table above (with respect to each series of Notes, the “Early Tender Premium” and, together with the applicable Tender Offer Consideration, the “Total Consideration”). Holders of Notes validly tendered (and, with respect to the 3.375% Notes only, any consents that have been validly delivered) after the Early Tender Time, but before the Expiration Time, and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will receive the applicable Tender Offer Consideration, but not the Early Tender Premium.
