 * The terms and conditions of the Notes provide for an optional

  ** For information purposes only, the Purchase Price will, when 
  determined in the manner described in this Tender Offer Memorandum 
  on the basis of a Settlement Date of 23 November 2020, be 102.203 
  per cent. Should the Settlement Date be amended, the Purchase 
  Price will be recalculated, all as further described in this Tender 
  Offer Memorandum. For the avoidance of doubt and in accordance 
  with market convention, the Purchase Price will be calculated 
  with reference to the first date on which the Offeror may exercise 
  the optional issuer call at par, being 7 July 2021, and assuming 
  the full payment of principal on such date. 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
 
 

Rationale for the Offer

The purpose of the Offer is to proactively manage the Offeror's balance sheet. Furthermore, the Offer will provide liquidity to those holders whose Notes are accepted in the Offer. The Offeror intends to cancel the Notes purchased by it pursuant to the Offer and such Notes will therefore not be re-issued or re-sold.

Purchase Price and Accrued Interest

In respect of any Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase by the Offeror pursuant to the Offer, the Offeror will pay a purchase price (the Purchase Price) to be determined in the manner described in the Tender Offer Memorandum by reference to a fixed purchase yield of -0.30 per cent. (the Purchase Yield). For the avoidance of doubt and in accordance with market convention, the Purchase Price will be calculated with reference to the first date on which the Offeror may exercise the optional issuer call at par, being 7 July 2021 (the Par Call Date), and assuming the full payment of principal on such date.

The Purchase Price will be determined in accordance with market convention and expressed as a percentage of the nominal amount of the Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer (rounded to the nearest 0.001 per cent., with 0.0005 per cent. rounded upwards), and is intended to reflect a yield to the Par Call Date of the Notes on the Settlement Date based on the Purchase Yield. Specifically, the Purchase Price will equal (a) the value of all remaining payments of principal and interest on the Notes up to and including the Par Call Date (assuming full payment or principal on such date), discounted to the Settlement Date at a discount rate equal to the Purchase Yield, minus (b) Accrued Interest.

For information purposes only, the Purchase Price will, when determined in the manner described in this Tender Offer Memorandum on the basis of a Settlement Date of 23 November 2020, be 102.203 per cent. Should the Settlement Date be amended, the Purchase Price will be recalculated on the basis described above.

The Offeror will also pay an Accrued Interest Payment in respect of any Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer.

Final Acceptance Amount and Scaling

If the Offeror decides, in its sole discretion, to accept any validly tendered Notes for purchase, the Offeror proposes to accept up to an aggregate nominal amount of the Notes such that the aggregate Purchase Price (excluding Accrued Interest) payable by the Offeror for all Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer is no greater than the Maximum Aggregate Purchase Price, although the Offeror reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to accept significantly less than or significantly more than (or none of) such amount for purchase pursuant to the Offer (the final aggregate amount of Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer being the Final Acceptance Amount).

If the Offeror decides to accept any validly tendered Notes for purchase pursuant to the Offer and the aggregate nominal amount of Notes validly tendered for purchase is greater than the Final Acceptance Amount, the Offeror intends to accept such Notes for purchase on a pro rata basis such that the aggregate nominal amount of Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer is no greater than the Final Acceptance Amount, as further described in the Tender Offer Memorandum.

Tender Instructions

In order to participate in, and be eligible to receive the Purchase Price and the Accrued Interest Payment pursuant to the Offer, Noteholders must validly tender their Notes by delivering, or arranging to have delivered on their behalf, a valid Tender Instruction that is received by the Tender Agent by 4.00 p.m. (London time) on 19 November 2020, unless extended, re-opened, amended and/or terminated as provided in the Tender Offer Memorandum (the Expiration Deadline).

Tender Instructions will be irrevocable except in the limited circumstances described in the Tender Offer Memorandum.

Tender Instructions must be submitted in respect of a minimum nominal amount of Notes of no less than EUR100,000, being the minimum denomination of the Notes, and may thereafter be submitted in integral multiples of EUR1,000. A separate Tender Instruction must be completed on behalf of each beneficial owner.

Indicative Timetable for the Offer

The Offeror may, in its sole discretion, extend, re-open, amend, waive any condition of or terminate the Offer at any time (subject to applicable law and as provided in the Tender Offer Memorandum) and the above times and dates are subject to the right of the Offeror to so extend, re-open, amend and/or terminate the Offer.
