Since the aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered as of the Early Tender Time exceeded the Maximum Tender Amount, the tender offer was oversubscribed and the Company accepted for purchase Notes tendered as of Early Tender Time on a prorated basis as described in the section "The Terms of the Tender Offer—Maximum Tender Amount; Priority of Acceptance; Proration" of the Offer to Purchase. Payment for any Notes so accepted was made on July 11, 2022. Because the tender offer was oversubscribed as of the Early Tender Time, holders of Notes who tendered Notes after the Early Tender Time will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase. Any tendered Notes that are not accepted for purchase have been or will be promptly returned or credited to the holder's account.
