(1) The Reference Yield for the Notes was determined at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 14, 2024.

(2) Per $1,000 principal amount.

The “Total Consideration” offered per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer was determined in the manner described in the Statement by reference to the applicable fixed spread (the “Fixed Spread”) specified for the Notes in the table above over the yield to maturity (the “Reference Yield”) based on the bid side price of the U.S. Treasury Security (the “Reference U.S. Treasury Security”) specified for the Notes in the table above, as calculated by the Dealer Manager and Solicitation Agent (as defined below) at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 14, 2024 (such time and date, the “Price Determination Date”). The Total Consideration is inclusive of the applicable Early Participation Payment specified for the Notes in the table above (the “Early Participation Payment”). The sum of the Fixed Spread and Reference Yield is referred to as the “Repurchase Yield.”

As previously announced, in order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration with respect to the Notes, holders of the notes (the “Holders”) must have validly tendered Notes on or prior to the Early Participation Deadline. Holders validly tendering Notes after the Early Participation Deadline but on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 2, 2024 (such time and date with respect to the Tender Offer, as it may be extended, the “Expiration Time”) will be eligible to receive only the “Tender Offer Consideration” for the Notes, which is equal to the Total Consideration minus the Early Participation Payment. In addition to the Total Consideration or Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, tendering Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date with respect to the Notes to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date (as defined below).

In addition, as previously announced, the Company solicited consents in the Consent Solicitation from the Holders (i) to eliminate certain covenants, restrictive provisions and events of default applicable to the Notes (collectively, the “Proposed Amendments”) and (ii) to the execution and delivery of a supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the Notes (the “Indenture”), containing the Proposed Amendments. Because the Company received consents representing a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes, the Company expects that the Issuers and the subsidiaries that guarantee the Notes will execute and deliver a supplemental indenture with respect to the Notes giving effect to the Proposed Amendments. The Proposed Amendments are expected to become operative on the Early Settlement Date (as defined below).

The Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation will expire at the Expiration Time. The “Early Settlement Date” will be, at Acrisure’s option, any time after the Early Participation Deadline and prior to the Expiration Time, which date is expected to be June 20, 2024, subject to the Financing Condition (as defined below) and all of the other conditions of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation having been satisfied or waived by the Company. The “Final Settlement Date” will be promptly after the Expiration Time. We refer to the Early Settlement Date and the Final Settlement Date as the “Settlement Date,” as applicable.

The Company’s obligation to consummate the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Statement, including, among others, that the Company shall have completed a new issuance of unsecured notes on terms and conditions satisfactory to the Company, yielding net cash proceeds which, together with such cash on hand as the Company considers reasonably appropriate to utilize for such purpose, is sufficient to fund the aggregate consideration in the Tender Offer, with respect to the Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Expiration Time (regardless of the actual amount of Notes tendered), plus accrued and unpaid interest (the “Financing Condition”).
