(b) 

Per $1,000 principal amount.

(c) 

Total Consideration is based on the Fixed Spread for the applicable series of Securities to the yield of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security for that
series as of 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on February 20, 2024. The Total Consideration excludes accrued and unpaid interest on the Securities

As previously announced, it is anticipated that payment for the Securities that were validly tendered and accepted for purchase as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 16, 2024 (the "Early Tender Date") will be made on February 22, 2024.

The Tender Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on March 5, 2024 (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Date"). As previously announced, because the Maximum Tender Offer has been fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, the Company does not expect to accept for purchase any Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered by holders after the Early Tender Date.
