DXC has filed two registration statements on Form S-4 relating to the exchange offers (together and as amended, the “registration statements”). Both registration statements were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 31, 2017, and have been declared effective. The CSC Exchange offer is being made pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in DXC’s prospectus, dated as of July 11, 2017, which forms a part of the registration statement applicable to the CSC Exchange. The DXC Exchange offer is being made pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in DXC’s prospectus, dated as of July 11, 2017, which forms a part of the registration statement applicable to the DXC Exchange.

The terms of the new notes to be issued in the DXC Exchange are identical in all material respects to the terms of the corresponding series of old notes, except that such new notes will have been registered under the Securities Act, and the transfer restrictions and registration rights relating to the old notes do not apply to such new notes. In connection with resales of such new notes, investors are required to make the representations described on the registration statement for the DXC Exchange. No accrued but unpaid interest will be paid on the old notes in connection with the exchange offers. However, the first interest payment for the new notes issued in the exchange offers will have accrued from the most recent interest payment date for such tendered old note.
