The Company also announced that it has amended the terms of the Tender Offer to increase each of the Total Consideration and the Tender Consideration (as each term is defined in the Company’s offer to purchase, dated August 7, 2023 (the “Offer to Purchase”)) per $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer to Purchase to $675.00 (the “Amended Consideration”), which increase applies to all Notes that have been, or will be, tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase (and, accordingly, to eliminate the Early Tender Premium (as defined in the Offer to Purchase)).
