(1)   Excludes Accrued Interest (as defined below), which will be paid by the Company.
(2) Includes the Early Participation Premium (as defined below) of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.
 

The terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are set forth in an Offer to Purchase dated September 12, 2017 (as amended hereby, the “Offer to Purchase”), which has been sent to holders of the Notes. Holders of the Notes are urged to read carefully the Offer to Purchase, as it contains important information regarding the Tender Offers.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offers, holders who validly tendered their Notes on or prior to the Early Participation Time and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive the applicable Total Consideration set forth in the table above for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes purchased pursuant to the Tender Offers, which includes an early participation premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (the “Early Participation Premium”), plus accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes from, and including, the applicable last interest payment date with respect to those Notes to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date (“Accrued Interest”). Withdrawal rights for the Notes expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 25, 2017.

As the aggregate consideration to be paid by the Company in respect of each series of Notes that have been tendered would exceed the applicable Maximum Series Tender Caps, acceptance for tenders of each series of Notes has been prorated such that (i) of the $231,835,000 aggregate principal amount of the 5.50% Senior Notes due 2019 that were tendered as of the Early Participation Time, only $141,377,000 aggregate principal amount are expected to be accepted for purchase on the Early Settlement Date; (ii) of the $277,852,000 aggregate principal amount of the 5.25% Senior Notes due 2020 that were tendered as of the Early Participation Time, only $115,874,000 aggregate principal amount are expected to be accepted for purchase on the Early Settlement Date; and (iii) of the $322,588,000 aggregate principal amount of the 7.00% Senior Notes due 2021 that were tendered as of the Early Participation Time, only $152,339,000 aggregate principal amount are expected to be accepted for purchase on the Early Settlement Date.

Because the Tender Offers have been fully subscribed as of the Early Participation Time, no Notes tendered after the Early Participation Time will be accepted for purchase in the Tender Offers. Any Notes tendered after the Early Participation Time, together with any Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Time but not accepted by the Company, including Notes not accepted because of proration, will be returned to the holders thereof. The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m. New York City time, on October 10, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated.

The obligation of the Company to accept any Notes tendered and to pay the consideration therefor is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including the consummation of an offering of senior debt securities, which the Company commenced concurrently with the Tender Offers, the net proceeds of which, together with other available cash, will fund the Tender Offers (the “Debt Financing”). The Debt Financing is expected to close on September 26, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions.

The dealer manager for the Tender Offers is RBC Capital Markets, LLC (the “Dealer Manager”). The information agent and the depositary for the Tender Offers is Global Bondholder Services Corporation (the “Depositary”). Any questions regarding the terms of the Tender Offers should be directed to the Dealer Manager at (toll-free) (877) 381-2099 or (212) 618-7822.

This news release shall not be construed as an offer to purchase or sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase or sell any of the Notes or any other securities. The Company, subject to applicable law, may amend, extend or terminate any or all of the Tender Offers and may postpone the acceptance for purchase of, and payment for, the Notes so tendered. The Tender Offers are not being made in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction. None of the Company, the Dealer Manager, the information agent or the Depositary makes any recommendations as to whether holders of the Notes should tender their Notes pursuant to the Tender Offers.
