As of December 31, 2020, there was $687,190,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2023 Notes outstanding.

The Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 13, 2021, unless extended (the “Expiration Time”). Tendered 2023 Notes may be withdrawn at any time before the Expiration Time.
Holders of 2023 Notes that are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Expiration Time, or who deliver to the tender and information agent a properly completed and duly executed notice of guaranteed delivery and subsequently deliver such 2023 Notes, each in accordance with the instructions described in the offer to purchase, will receive $1,008.40 per $1,000 principal amount of the 2023 Notes accepted for purchase. In addition, all holders of 2023 Notes accepted for purchase will receive accrued and unpaid interest from and including the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the settlement date.
