Subject to the terms and conditions of the Any and All Tender Offer, HP Co. expects that it will accept for purchase any and all Notes listed on Table I validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Waterfall Tender Offer, HP Co. expects that it will accept for purchase Notes listed on Table II validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Deadline in a combined aggregate principal amount equal to $2,300,000,000 (the "Waterfall Maximum Amount"). 

The settlement for the Notes accepted by HP Co. in connection with the Early Tender Deadline is currently expected to take place on October 16, 2015 (the "Settlement Date"). The Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offers may no longer be withdrawn, unless otherwise required by law.

The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 28, 2015, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Time").

The Tender Offers are not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Notes being tendered, and the Tender Offers may be amended, extended, terminated or withdrawn in whole or with respect to one or more series of Notes. 

HP Co.'s obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, any Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers are conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in each applicable offer to purchase under the heading "Terms of the Tender Offer--Conditions to the Tender Offer."
