The Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 15, 2023, unless extended or earlier terminated by SEE (the "Expiration Date"). No tenders submitted after the Expiration Date will be valid. Tenders of Notes may be withdrawn any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 15, 2023, by following the procedures described in the Offer to Purchase.

The consideration (the "Total Consideration") offered for each $1,000 principal amount of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread for the Notes specified in the table above plus the yield to maturity based on the bid-side price of the Reference Security specified in the table above, as quoted on the Bloomberg Bond Trader PX4 page as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 15, 2023, unless extended or earlier terminated by SEE. In addition to the Total Consideration, SEE will also pay accrued and unpaid interest on Notes purchased up to, but not including, the Settlement Date (as defined below). The Settlement Date for Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase and delivered at or prior to the Expiration Date or delivered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Offer to Purchase is expected to be November 20, 2023, three business days after the Expiration Date (the "Settlement Date"). Additionally, SEE intends, but is not obligated, to satisfy and discharge any outstanding Notes that are not tendered in the Tender Offer. However, there can be no assurance that such Notes will be satisfied and discharged.

Holders must validly tender (and not validly withdraw) their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date, or deliver a properly completed and duly executed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery for their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date, and tender their Notes at or prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), in accordance with the instructions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, in order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration. In addition, holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Settlement Date.

SEE’s obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offer to Purchase, including, among others, SEE and Sealed Air Corporation (US) completing the offering and sale of new debt securities (the "New Notes Offering") on terms acceptable to SEE.

The Tender Offer does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities or other financial instruments that may be issued or otherwise incurred in connection with the New Notes Offering. SEE reserves the right, subject to applicable law, in its sole discretion, to: (i) waive any and all conditions to the Tender Offer at any time and from time to time; (ii) extend or terminate the Tender Offer; or (iii) otherwise amend the Tender Offer in any respect. SEE is not soliciting consents from holders of securities in connection with the Tender Offer.

Nothing contained in the Offer to Purchase will prevent SEE from exercising its rights to redeem, defease or satisfy or otherwise discharge its obligations with respect to all or a portion of Notes by depositing cash or securities with the trustee in accordance with the indenture governing the Notes.

SEE has retained BofA Securities, Inc. to act as exclusive Dealer Manager. Global Bondholder Services Corporation has been retained to serve as both the depositary and the information agent (the "Depositary and Information Agent") for the Tender Offer. For additional information regarding the terms of the Tender Offer, please contact: BofA Securities, Inc. at (888) 292-0070 (toll free) or (980) 683-5454 (collect). Requests for copies of the Offer to Purchase and other related materials should be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at contact@gbsc-usa.com (email), 1-855-654-2014 (U.S. Toll Free), 1-212-430-3774 (Banks and Brokers).

Copies of the Offer to Purchase and Notice of Guaranteed Delivery are available at the following web address: https://www.gbsc-usa.com/sealedair/.

This press release is for informational purposes only and is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell with respect to any Notes nor is this announcement an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase new debt securities. The Tender Offer is being made solely pursuant to the Offer Documents, which set forth the complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer is not being made to, nor will SEE accept tenders of Notes from, holders 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.

None of SEE, its affiliates, their respective board of directors, the Dealer Manager, the trustee of the Notes or the Depositary and Information Agent makes any recommendation to any holder of Notes in connection with the Tender Offer. Holders must make their own decisions as to whether to tender their Notes and, if so, the principal amount of Notes to tender.
