Holders will also receive in cash an amount equal to Accrued Interest (as defined below) in addition to the Purchase Price.

The Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 19, 2024, unless extended or earlier terminated (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Date”). Holders of Notes must validly tender (including by notice of guaranteed delivery) and not validly withdraw their Notes prior to or at the Expiration Date to be eligible to receive the Purchase Price.

Holders who validly tender their Notes, may validly withdraw their tendered Notes at any time prior to the earlier of (i) the Expiration Date, and (ii) if the Tender Offer is extended, the 10th business day after commencement of the Tender Offer. Notes may also be validly withdrawn at any time after the 60th business day after commencement of the Tender Offer if for any reason the Tender Offer has not been consummated within 60-business days after commencement of the Tender Offer.

Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the date the Company initially makes payment for such Notes (“Accrued Interest”), which date is anticipated to be April 23, 2024 (the “Settlement Date”). Notes tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery and accepted for purchase will be purchased on the fourth business day after the Expiration Date but payment of accrued interest on such Notes will only be made to, but not including, the Settlement Date. The Operating Partnership intends to fund the Purchase Price for the Notes tendered in the Tender Offer with net proceeds it received from the sale of $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 8.875% Guaranteed Notes due 2029. Additional terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are set forth in the Tender Offer Documents.

Holders are urged to read the Tender Offer Documents carefully before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offer.
