(3)  All references to the aggregate purchase price for the Maximum Tender Offer Notes include the applicable Total Consideration and exclude applicable accrued interest and fees and expenses related to the Tender Offers.
*  The Total Consideration and the Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, will be determined taking into account the par call date, instead of the maturity date, of such Securities in accordance with standard market practice.

The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m. New York City time, on December 13, 2021, unless extended by the Company (the "Expiration Date"). Holders of Any and All Notes may still tender their Any and All Notes for purchase prior to the Expiration Date. Holders of Any and All Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date but prior to the Expiration Date are not eligible to receive the Early Tender Payment (as defined below) on the Final Settlement Date (as defined below).

The consideration paid in each Tender Offer for Securities that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread for such Securities plus the applicable yield to maturity of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the tables above and in the Offer to Purchase (the "Total Consideration"). Holders of Securities that were validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase will receive the applicable Total Consideration, which includes an early tender payment as set forth in the Offer to Purchase (the "Early Tender Payment"). Holders of Any and All Notes who validly tender their Securities after the Early Tender Date but prior to the Expiration Date are only eligible to receive the applicable "Tender Offer Consideration," which is an amount equal to the applicable Total Consideration minus the applicable Early Tender Payment. The Total Consideration for the Any and All Notes, the Acceptance Priority Level 1 Notes and the Acceptance Priority Level 2 Notes is set forth in the tables above. The Tender Offer Consideration applicable to Any and All Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date but prior to the Expiration Date is also set forth in the first table above.

Payment for Securities purchased will include accrued and unpaid interest from the applicable last interest payment date for the relevant series of Securities up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date for such Securities accepted for purchase.

The Company plans to have an early settlement. The settlement date for the Securities that were validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase is expected to be December 1, 2021, the second business day after the Early Tender Date (the "Early Settlement Date"). The settlement date for Any and All Notes that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Date but prior to the Expiration Date is expected to be December 15, 2021, the second business day after the Expiration Date (the "Final Settlement Date," and each of the Early Settlement Date and the Final Settlement Date is referred to as a "Settlement Date").
