Does not include Accrued Interest, which will also be payable as provided herein.

Includes the Early Tender Premium.

The deadline for holders to validly withdraw tenders of Notes has passed. Accordingly, Notes that were tendered before the Early Tender Time and any additional Notes that are tendered at or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on May 14, 2021 (the «Expiration Date«) may not be withdrawn, except in the limited circumstances described in the Offer to Purchase.

The Tender Offer is subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions (including the financing condition as defined in the Offer to Purchase) to the Tender Offer described in the Offer to Purchase having been either satisfied or waived by the Co-Issuers, the Co-Issuers intend to accept for purchase all of the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) before the Early Tender Time. These Notes will be purchased on May 4, 2021 (the «Early Settlement Date«). Holders of the Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Time but at or prior to the Expiration Date will not be entitled to receive the Early Tender Premium and therefore will only receive the Tender Offer Consideration, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the Final Settlement Date.

The Co-Issuers intend to accept for purchase any remaining Notes that are validly tendered and accepted in the Tender Offer prior to the Expiration Date. These Notes are expected to be purchased on May 18, 2021 (the «Final Settlement Date«).

All Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes from the last interest payment date with respect to those Notes to, but not including, the applicable settlement date. The amount of such interest will be subject to withholding tax gross-up using the same methodology as in the indenture governing the Notes, subject to the exceptions contained therein. Nevertheless, the amount of such interest may be subject to withholding tax if required by law or by the interpretation of the corresponding tax administration, without prejudice to the potential application of gross-up using the same methodology as in the indenture governing the Notes.

Payment for Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offer, including accrued and unpaid interest and fees and expenses payable in connection with the Tender Offer, is expected to be financed with the net proceeds of Andres BV’s offering of $300 million 5.700% Notes due 2028 (the «New Notes«) that priced on April 29, 2021 and is expected to close on the Early Settlement Date (the «Bond Offering«).  The Tender Offer is conditioned on the successful completion of the Bond Offering.  See «The Terms of the Tender Offer—Conditions to the Tender Offer.» The Bond Offering will be exempt from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the «Securities Act«). This Tender Offer is not an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the New Notes.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc. («Citigroup«) J.P. Morgan Securities LLC («J.P. Morgan«) and Scotia Capital (USA) Inc. («Scotiabank«) are acting as dealer managers for the Tender Offer (the «Dealer Managers«).  GBSC has been retained to serve as the Tender and Information Agent for the Tender Offer.  Persons with questions regarding the Tender Offer should contact Citigroup at (800) 558-3745 (toll free) or (212) 723-6106 (collect), J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Attn: Liability Management Group, (866) 846-2874 (toll-free) or (212) 834-7279 (collect), or Scotia Capital (USA) Inc. Attn: Liability Management, (833) 498-1660 (toll-free). 

Requests for the Offer to Purchase should be directed to GBSC at (toll free) (866) 470-3700 or (collect) (212) 430-3774 or email at contact@gbsc-usa.com.

None of the Co-Issuers, their board of directors, their officers, the Dealer Managers, the depositary, the information agent or the trustee with respect to the Notes, or any of their respective affiliates, makes any recommendation that holders tender or refrain from tendering all or any portion of the principal amount of their Notes, and no one has been authorized by any of them to make such a recommendation.  Holders must make their own decision as to whether to tender their Notes and, if so, the principal amount of Notes to tender.

This press release is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to purchase with respect to any Notes or any other securities, including the New Notes.  The Tender Offer is being made solely pursuant to the terms of the Offer to Purchase.  The Tender Offer is not being made to holders of Notes 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.
