Includes the Early Tender Premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Tender Offer Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase by us.
In addition to the applicable Total Consideration, accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the early settlement date, which is currently expected to occur on January 20, 2021 (the "Early Settlement Date"), will be paid by Broadcom in same day funds on the Early Settlement Date on all validly tendered Tender Offer Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offers.
The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 1, 2021 (as the same may be extended, earlier expired or terminated with respect to one or more series of Tender Offer Notes, the "Expiration Date"). Holders of Tender Offer Notes who validly tender their Tender Offer Notes after the Early Tender Deadline and on or before the Expiration Date and whose Tender Offer Notes are accepted for purchase will receive only the applicable purchase price, as fully described in the Statement. The purchase price for the Tender Offer Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will be calculated by taking the Total Consideration for the applicable series and subtracting from it the Early Tender Premium for such series. The purchase price plus accrued interest for Tender Offer Notes that are validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline and on or before the Expiration Date and accepted for purchase will be paid by the purchasers in same-day funds promptly following the Expiration Date on the final settlement date, which is currently expected to occur on February 3, 2021.
