______________________

(1)

Per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered and accepted for exchange. The Exchange Consideration for each series of Old Notes is based on the fixed spread for the applicable series of Old Notes, plus the yield of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security for that series as of 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Price Determination Date. The applicable Exchange Consideration does not include accrued and unpaid interest on the Old Notes accepted for exchange (the “Accrued Coupon Payment“), which is payable in cash in addition to the applicable Exchange Consideration.

(2)

Payable in principal amount of New Notes per each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of the specified series of Old Notes validly tendered and accepted for exchange.

The coupon for the New Notes was also determined today at 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) and is equal to 5.093% per annum. The coupon was calculated as the sum of (a) the yield of the 1.625% U.S. Treasury Security due 2029 (the “New Notes Reference Security“), as calculated by the Dealer Managers (as defined below) in accordance with standard market practice, that equated to the bid- side price of the New Notes Reference Security appearing at the Price Determination Date on the Bloomberg Reference Page FIT1, plus (b) 322 basis points, such sum rounded to the third decimal place when expressed as a percentage. The New Notes will mature on January 15, 2030. Interest will paid on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing on January 15, 2020. The issue price is 100% of principal amount, plus accrued interest (if any) from September 18, 2019. The New Notes may be redeemed, in whole or in part, prior to their stated maturity at the option of PGF at a make-whole price calculated based on a benchmark treasury plus 50 basis points.

If and when issued, the New Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. Therefore, the New Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws. PGF will enter into a registration rights agreement with respect to the New Notes.

The Exchange Offers are being made in accordance with the offering memorandum, dated September 9, 2019, the related eligibility letter and notice of guaranteed delivery (collectively, the “Exchange Offer Documents“).

Global Bondholder Services Corporation is acting as the Information Agent and the Exchange Agent for the Exchange Offers. Questions or requests for assistance related to the Exchange Offers or for additional copies of the Exchange Offer Documents may be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation at (866) 470-3800 (toll free) or (212) 430-3774 (collect). You may also contact your broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee for assistance concerning the Exchange Offers.
