  1. Per $1,000 amount.
  2. The Total Consideration for Securities validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date (as defined below) and accepted for purchase is calculated using the applicable Fixed Spread and is inclusive of the Early Tender Payment.

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the offer to purchase, dated March 4, 2024 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Offer to Purchase"), (a) Holdings is offering to purchase for cash an aggregate principal amount of its 5.000% senior notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”) up to $94 million (such cap, the “Maximum Tender Cap”) (the “Maximum Tender Offer”) and (b) Xerox is offering to purchase for cash any and all of its 3.800% senior notes due 2024 (the “2024 Notes”) (the “Any and All Tender Offer” and, together with the Maximum Tender Offer, the “Tender Offers”). Holdings reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase the Maximum Tender Cap with respect to the 2025 Notes at any time, subject to applicable law. The Company refers investors to the Offer to Purchase for the complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offers.

The Tender Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 1, 2024, or any other date and time to which the Company extends the applicable Tender Offer (such date and time, as it may be extended with respect to a Tender Offer, the applicable "Expiration Date"), unless earlier terminated. Holders of Securities must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Securities prior to or at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 15, 2024 (such date and time, as it may be extended with respect to a Tender Offer, the "Early Tender Date"), to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration (as defined below), which is inclusive of an amount in cash equal to the applicable amount set forth in the table above under the heading "Early Tender Payment" (the "Early Tender Payment"), plus Accrued Interest. If a holder validly tenders Securities after the applicable Early Tender Date but prior to or at the applicable Expiration Date, the holder will only be eligible to receive the applicable Late Tender Offer Consideration (as defined below) plus Accrued Interest.

The applicable consideration (the "Total Consideration") offered per $1,000 principal amount of each series of Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread for such Securities specified in the table above plus the applicable yield based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the table above as displayed on the applicable page on the Bloomberg Bond Trader FIT3 and FIT4 page at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on March 18, 2024. The "Late Tender Offer Consideration" is equal to the Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Payment.

The Tender Offers will expire on the applicable Expiration Date. Except as set forth below, payment for the Securities that are validly tendered prior to or at the Expiration Date will be made on a date promptly following the Expiration Date, which is currently anticipated to be April 3, 2024. The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make payment for Securities that are validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date and that are accepted for purchase on an earlier settlement date, which, if applicable, is currently anticipated to be March 20, 2024, provided that the conditions to the satisfaction of the applicable Tender Offer are satisfied.

Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the applicable last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date of each Tender Offer ("Accrued Interest").

Tendered Securities may be validly withdrawn prior to or at, but not after, 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 15, 2024.  

The Tender Offers are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including a financing condition, which are specified in the Offer to Purchase. The Tender Offers are not conditioned upon the tender of any minimum principal amount of the Securities.
