* Per $1,000 principal amount of Debentures accepted for purchase

(a) Subject to a maximum tender amount of $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount as described in the Offer to Purchase

The reference yield was determined by Barclays Capital Inc., BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, the lead dealer managers for the tender offers, based on the bid-side price for the applicable U.S. Treasury security at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, today, as described in the Offer to Purchase dated June 1, 2015.

Holders who tender Debentures by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 30, 2015, will be eligible to receive the applicable total consideration (which includes the applicable early tender payment set out above).

In addition, holders of Debentures accepted for purchase will be paid accrued interest to but excluding the settlement date. Withdrawal rights for the tender offers expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 12, 2015.

The company will only purchase up to $1,000,000,000 aggregate purchase price of the Debentures in the tender offers, and the amount of each series of Debentures that will be purchased will be determined in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Levels set forth above and may be prorated as described in the Offer to Purchase. In addition, the aggregate principal amount of the 4.479% Debentures due 2021 (the “2021 Notes”) that may be purchased is subject to a maximum tender amount of $250,000,000 as described in the Offer to Purchase. Because, as previously disclosed, the principal amount of the 2021 Notes tendered already exceeds such maximum tender amount, any 2021 Notes that are purchased after applying the aggregate purchase price limitation and the Acceptance Priority Levels will be prorated.

The consummation of the tender offers is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions, including the financing condition, set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
