The Tender Offer is not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Securities being validly tendered. Our obligation to accept for payment and to pay for the Securities in the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase, including the consummation of a concurrent notes offering on terms satisfactory to Welltec (Financing Transaction). There can be no assurance that we will complete the concurrent notes offering and satisfy the conditions to the Tender Offer. We reserve the right, subject to applicable law, to waive any one or more of the conditions with respect to the Tender Offer at any time.

Welltec intends to redeem the Securities that are not validly tendered and accepted for payment in the Tender Offer (Post-Closing Redemption) in accordance with the terms of the optional redemption provisions in the indenture governing the Securities. The Securities will be redeemable at a price of 100.000% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest on and after February 1, 2018 and we intend to redeem the Securities at this price. While the Securities are currently redeemable at a price of 102.000% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, we do not expect to consummate the Post-Closing Redemption at this price. We intend to deposit into an account designated by the trustee for the Securities amounts required to fund the Post-Closing Redemption, in accordance with the satisfaction and discharge provisions of the indenture governing the Securities. This news release does not constitute a notice of redemption of the Securities.

Holders must validly tender and not subsequently validly withdraw their Securities at or prior to the Expiration Date in order to be eligible to receive the Consideration for such Securities purchased in the Tender Offer.

The Settlement Date will be determined at our option and is currently expected to occur on November 28, 2017, other than with respect to Notes tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Offer to Purchase, with respect to which payment is expected to be made on November 27, 2017.

As described in the Offer to Purchase, tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time before the earlier of (i) the expiration time of the Tender Offer and (ii) if the Tender Offer is extended, the 10th New York business day after the commencement of the Tender Offer. Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer may also be withdrawn at any time after the 60th New York business day after commencement of the Tender Offer if for any reason the Tender Offer has not been consummated within 60 New York business days of commencement. The Tender Offer is subject to certain conditions, including related to the Financing Transaction.
