5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 16, 2023 (the "Early Tender Time") was the last date and time for holders to tender their Notes in order to be eligible to receive the applicable Early Tender Consideration.

In addition to the applicable Early Tender Consideration, holders whose Notes are purchased in the Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest ("Accrued Interest") from the last semi-annual interest payment date up to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date.

Settlement

The Offeror expects payment for Notes that were validly tendered as of the Early Tender Time and that are accepted for purchase will be made on a date prior to the Expiration Time (the "Early Settlement Date"). The Offeror anticipates that the Early Settlement Date will be November 21, 2023, subject to all conditions to the Tender Offer having been satisfied or waived by the Offeror.

The Offeror's obligation to accept for payment and to pay for the Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions described in the Offer to Purchase.

The Offeror has appointed Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Merrill Lynch International as dealer managers (the "Dealer Managers") for the Tender Offer. The Offeror has retained Global Bondholder Services Corporation as the tender and information agent for the Tender Offer.

This press release shall not constitute, or form part of, an offer to sell, a solicitation to buy or an offer to purchase or sell any securities. The Tender Offer is being made only pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and only in such jurisdictions as is permitted under applicable law.
